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.
