no, what do *you* think? Don't ask the bunch of us. We're just people. You know better than any of us do. Feel like you are on the verge of something that you just need to try a little harder for? like, where's the website, maybe? Just as an example, not as a real thing that I actually think. I believe that you know the answer.


Dearest Alison!!! how many times have i said that to you about myself!!??!! You amaze the heck out of me that you do accomplish so much and and so beautiful too.. i really love the shawls that you made and all the other things that you have designed.. you do accomplish so much and you have nothing to worry about.. you are certainly not lazy .. its is so funny cause i just read an article about adult ADD which i believe i have and have had since childhood and all the things you just wrote about are symptoms.. write to me and i'll send you the link for the articles!! hugs hugs and more hugs .. love Karola


I have a similar procrastination problem. I have just been diagnosed with ADD and am taking Ritalin. It has made a big difference, which makes me wonder what I might have accomplished if I had been able to focus better all these years....(I'm 57).

However, the biggest difference to me has been made by the FlyLady (www.flylady.net), who emails advice and encouragement and has organized me. I couldn't have done it by myself. She is better than drugs!


i totally understand. I go back and forth between being like you and being like your dad, i can't strike a balance. i think it's just hard to get going. once you get some momentum maybe it will be easier to be dadlike for at least a spurt

ps typing and holding baby at same time. sorry for lack of caps.


I've heard the same stuff all my life. One year my boss gave me that evaluation. I thru the paper over to her side of the table and said. "They've been saying this about me since the 4th grade. When do you expect me to change?". I don't think they liked that. I've often wondered if I have Adult ADD, but I don't think I'll ever get around to having myself tested.
Just enjoy what you acomplish and don't worry about the rest.

Oh, you wrote my life on that day. I have been feeling so lazy lately, and it doesn't help that my husband does the dishes and then reminds me that he is doing everything around here, which is a bit of an overstatement, but still, he may be on to something. I keep thinking I should be getting more done with my time. Where does it all go? Something to chat about.
