Top 5 Signs you have ADHD...

#5) When you go to make your bed, you find yourself wandering through the living room clapping to a song in your head instead.
#4) You go to use the bathroom during breakfast, and forget to come back and eat.
#3) When you go to brush your teeth, you turn on the water and zone out for 15 minutes or so because the sound of running water is so relaxing.
#2) You think the song "Greasy Grimey Gopher Guts" is absolutely hilarious at 6:30 AM.
And the top one:
#1) You are completely dressed and ready to leave for the day before someone points out to you that your pants are on backwards.

(Hope you have a great first day of school, C. I love ya!!)

To anyone else, if you notice any of these signs, seek immediate help!! Your boss may not think your backwards pants are so funny!!

A Tribute to Breast Cancer Survivors, Fighters, and Victims

Today is the local Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Last year my oldest son and I signed up together to do this race. We raised funds and we met early in the morning with thousand of other supporters and survivors to walk, run, and support each other for a great cause. This year personal circumstances were different, and my son and I couldn't join the thousands in person, but I find myself thinking about them. There are so many men and women who have conquered Breast Cancer both locally and world-wide. There are those of us who have lost loved ones to the disease, and those of us who have known someone who have lost someone. Today I give tribute to all of them. To those battling Breast Cancer or any kind of cancer- you are so brave!! Don't give up!! You are loved and you are a much needed part of the world!! To those who find themselves helplessly standing by that special someone- all we can do is show our love and do our best to do our part to help find a cure!! To those whom we have lost- you will never be forgotten!! You are the reason we keep going, searching for a cure, and marching on!! We love you!!
Today, celebrate life- hug your family and friends!! Enjoy every moment you have!! Take the steps to keep yourself healthy!! Schedule your annual check-up you've been putting off- your loved ones will thank you!! Find a way to make a difference in the world, and know that you're not doing it alone!!
