not a finisher


always in progress. That has been the excuse, the music, & the theme to my life. I am always starting new projects, & my house is eternally being cleaned. For the latter part of my life I learned to blame this "unfinisheritus" on the fact that I have ADD. But in all honesty I have never been clinically diagnosed. I just say that because in my last semester in college. I went to the college office where they help people with challenges to take a test to find out what my deal was. If they find a deficit they can give you extra time on exams. So I took the test and the lady said I was off the charts in the ADD section. That they would refer me to a shrink or whatever kind of Doctor they send you to tell you that. It was my last semester, exams were in a few weeks away and I figured ah whatever! I made It this far without any drugs or professional help... I'll be fine...and I am fine!! I'm great ! I somehow found a great husband (Dale). and we had two fine children. Jonah, almost 2 and Geneva, 6 months.
And Although I am flawwed and unfinished around the edges, I am grateful for where life has brought me. I continue to make the most out of each day whether that be all, or most of the laundry done and at the very least, a sketch started for a scrapbook page! Hopfully I'll finish the important things.

Not a finisher eh? I think what's most important is being "a starter". That's what counts in my books baby. I love that you're doing the blog thing..even if it goes un-updated for long periods of time, I'll check back. I used to be a "not a finisher" kind of girl too. Well I haven't changed much but now I like to look at it as a "non-neglecter". Dirty laundry give the cat a place to sleep, and gives us more time for things that get nelgected- like a little cuddle or long showers. Wishing you many stained and stinky clothes to come.
