I read an article recently about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and how six million children have been diagnosed with this condition and one million of those six million have also been classified as having Sluggish Cognitive Tempo or SCT (two million children).They report lethargy, day dreaming, and slow mental processing.

It seems like with our "hair on fire" pace, we are becoming experts at multi-tasking. We try to pack as much as we can into every moment of our lives.

...I think I do.

It's when you have a fear of not having a mobile-phone. I experience this periodically and get down-right anxious and stressed-out if I've left my cell phone and/or I can't access it...I know, it's ridiculous! It's become a digital addiction and oddly enough, instills comfort when I have it.

Oh no, what if they put this in the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders"?!? Will it be code #911?

My husband is an avid cyclist and will often comment about the challenges of riding into a strong headwind; there have been times he was uncertain how he could make it home. He's been tempted to call and have me pick him up, but just "gutted" it out.

...good grief, I don't know if it's a phenomena of growing older, but time seems to zip past me faster than it used to...I can't believe today is Mom's Day 2012 and that June is just around the corner!

For Mother's Day, I had made reservations for a Sunday Brunch at a local establishment...my hubby had other plans...

...the best in the world. I've tried to follow her instructions to a tee, but I simply cannot duplicate the results. She never used a recipe book, nor wrote any of her "secrets" down, just a "pinch of this and a dash of that". She and my Father lived simple lives, good 'ole farm folks in the South Valley. Long hours of work, swinging on the porch, and having guests over for Sunday dinners (now ya know, my family then had "dinner and supper"...dinner meant lunch time).
