Nockling

While using Brenden's binoculars, Nolan said, "Mom, I'm nockling you!"

I have a little problem:
I can't bring myself to stay in my house long enough to clean it or prepare 3 square meals.  It has been beautiful!  The weather is nice, everything is turning green, and the sun shines for more hours than I am awake in the day.  Ethan still wants his shoes on the minute he wakes up and he wants to "pay."  

Brenden only has 3 days of school left.  He is ready for summer so he can play with his friends everyday (the boys with no supervision - remember them from last summer's blogs?).  Every night at bath time he says he is never going to play outside again so he won't ever have to take a bath again, but then the next day when he gets home from school, his first question is: Can I play outside?

We have lots of projects and I don't know where to start every morning.  I feel like I move from project to project as I decide one is more important than the other and nothing will ever get done.  Doug just keeps reminding me: One thing at a time...  I just want them all done, and yesterday!  I am enjoying the projects (well, the sense of accomplishment, really), but can't see how I will ever convince myself to stay inside and work on the indoor to do list.  Have you ever read If you give a mouse a cookie?  That's my life.  I start one thing, which leads to another thing that needs to be done in order to get the first thing done, but neither can be finished without the other being done.  It's maddening.

Erin, It is good to know I am not alone. I keep going from project to project with nothing even being accomplished.

That is the story of my life. I have house ADHD.
