I have really hit the nail on the head with “being better about getting in the habit of positing” NOT! Its ok though A LOT has happened over the past few months that I can go back and post about. But in the meantime, I needed to get a small track of my daily life to see why I feel I never slow down…. this is me summed up with the ADHD brain in a nutshell. I seriously need to get a grip on an actual schedule. When my days typically start at 8:00am and end at 4:00am I had to see where 20 hours of my day was going. This is why I need structure. This is why I have burnout so often. This is why I need to take better care of me.
11:45am Let dog out to walk – trip over groceries at front door that I forgot were delivered at 11:00.
11:55am It’s too damn hot to walk come back in – stepping over groceries so I can get them after getting dog in.
12:00pm Feed and water dog and cats
12:05pm Remember I need to mail off Father’s Day freshies.
12:06pm Realized I needed to find a marker to write addresses
12:07pm Oh crap, I need to put on my eyelash serum because I’m losing eyelashes.

12:14pm Walking back to wash face – halfway down hall remembers I need a marker off desk.
12:15pm Finally back to my room and set the drink and marker on nightstand.
12:16pm Wash face – need to let it dry before putting toner so I can quickly put addresses on packages.
12:17pm Can’t find marker to write – checks phone and gets distracted by snap chat messages.
12:19pm Crap; need to do toner so it can dry before vitamin c application.
12:20pm Back to write addresses – got return address posted.
