A short list to- do, but with ADHD, it’s still challenging
It looked like it was going to be a very good day. Only two things on my to-do list, go vote and go pick up a book at the library. Maybe it was just too easy.
When I got to the court house, without even getting lost, there were signs for early voting on the parking spaces, and there were empty spaces. Amazing! So I pulled into one. Then I noticed there wasn’t a sign in front of my space. Did I have to feed the meter? Unclear. But I didn’t have change on me, and digging into the junk box in my car was a daunting and possibly futile task. So I decided to take a chance.
Fortunately, the line for voting was very short, and I got in and out quickly. No ticket! Could’ve ruined my whole day. Still, I was nervous the whole time I was voting.
Off to the library
Didn’t get lost.
Lucky again. Plenty of parking spaces. Locked the car door, walked up to the library, saw the parking tag box, realized I had to pay for a parking tag. Twenty five cents. A quarter.
Walked back to the car. Unlocked car door. Wound up digging into the junk box after all. Found a quarter. Yea!
Walked back to the tag box, put in my quarter. It worked!
Walked back to the car. Put tag in the window. Locked the car door.
Walked back to the library. They had the book. I had my card. Got the book. Wonder of wonders.
Walked back to the car. Unlocked the car door. Drove home. Didn’t get lost.
Another ADHD adventure. And so it goes.
Have a good day.
Strategy O the Day:
Remember to plan for everything you do to take twice as long as it should.
Mystery O the Day
I wonder if anyone will really understand this story if they don’t have ADHD?
Information tidbit O the Day:
Swamped, I mean swamped. Of course, a lot is that I do blame on ADHD. My goal is to keep up two posts a week, but honestly, I’ll be doing well to get one a week for a while.
