This is for those of us who can relate.

FOR ALL YOU WONDERFUL, PATIENT, AND UNDERSTANDING FRIENDS AND FAMILY

MEMBERS WHO NEVER FORGET ME ON CHRISTMAS!!!

PLEASE KNOW THAT YOU ARE CONSTANTLY WITH ME AS I PREPARE,

WHAT YOU MAY NEVER SEE...

TRACYS A.D.D. CHRISTMAS

              (A.D.D. ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER)

I GOT GREAT GIFTS FROM U.P.S.,

AND QUICKLY OPENED THEM ALL.

WHO ON EARTH COULD WAIT THAT LONG?

AND THEN I HIT THE MALL!

I BOUGHT A BUNCH OF PERFECT THINGS,

AS SWEET AS THEY COULD BE,

THOSE, ALONG WITH HALF THE HOUSE,

ALL UNDERNEATH MY TREE.

I HAVE MY BOXED UP DECORATIONS,

AND WRAPPING PAPER TOO,

BUT I FORGOT TO BUY SCOTCH TAPE,

SO I'M GONNA TRY HOT GLUE.

WHEN I WENT TO GET THE GLUE GUN OUT,

I FOUND ALL MY OLD BEADS,

SO I THOUGHT I'D MAKE SOME JEWELRY,

THAT'S WHAT EVERYBODY NEEDS!

AND THEN I DID MORE SHOPPING,

'CAUSE I FORGOT TO MAKE A LIST,

SEE I WAS GETTING CARDS FROM PEOPLE,

THAT IT SEEMS I MUST HAVE MISSED.

AND I HAVE A BUNCH OF CHRISTMAS CARDS,

STAMPS, AND EVEN A PEN,

I MEANT TO GET THEM OUT LAST WEEK,

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN.

HEY! THESE ARE THE CARDS I GOT LAST YEAR,

I MUST HAVE NEVER GOT THEM OUT!

I CAN'T BELIEVE I DIDN'T SEND THEM,

WONDER WHAT WAS THAT ABOUT?

MOST OF THE TIME, IT'S NOT TO ROUGH,

TO HAVE THIS ADD,

BUT LATELY I'M AS SCATTERED,

AS A HUMAN GIRL CAN BE!

I DON'T KNOW WHERE THE TIME GOES,

WITH THIS CRAZY HYPER-FOCUS!

I'D LOVE TO GET THE WRAPPING DONE,

BUT I'M FRESH OUT OF HOCUS POCKUS!

AND MY HUSBANDS ABOUT HAD IT,

SEEMS HE CAN'T FIND HIS CHAIR,

I SWEAR IT'S IN THE LIVING-ROOM,

BENEATH THAT CRAP IN THERE.

SOME PEOPLE GET THE BLUES 'BOUT NOW,

AND I CAN RELATE IT'S TRUE,

IT JUST SEEMS I GET BEHIND ALOT,

AND I REALLY TRY... I DO!!!

BUT THE FOLKS THAT TRULY LOVE ME,

UNDERSTAND ME VERY WELL,

THEY KNOW I HAVE THE BEST INTENTIONS,

AND THEY HARDLY EVER YELL,

WHEN I SHOW UP LATE TO PARTYS,

AND FORGET TO BRING THE PIE,

THEY HAVE LEARNED THAT THOUGH I'M TRULY KIND,

THEY JUST CAN NOT RELY,

ON ME AROUND THE HOLIDAYS,

TO GET ALL THIS STUFF DONE,

BUT I'll TRY THIS YEAR TO SEND EACH CARD,

YES EVERY SINGLE ONE!

AND SINCE TOMORROW NIGHT IS CHRISTMAS EVE,

I THINK THEY MIGHT BE LATE,

BUT THERE SUCH NICE CARDS, I PERSONALLY THINK,

THEY ARE WORTH THE WAIT!

SO BE GENTLE WITH US SPECIAL PEOPLE,

WHO HAVE THIS A.D.D.,

WE MAY BE A LITTLE SIDEWAYS,

BUT WERE AS INTERESTING AS CAN BE!

YES WERE THE ONES THAT YOU CAN THANK,

FOR DRAGGING THE HOLIDAYS OUT.

WHEN YOU GET YOUR CARD IN APRIL,

YOU'LL SEE WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.

I LOVE YOU!

I THANK YOU, FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND  "Oh look... a butterfly!"

Yeah  ;):)   :P

So yesterday I got a card from oldest sister who wrote on the outside of the enverlope, "I must have had this from last yr....)  so I'm not alone. It helps if I just say, I don't do cards.

Thanks for the post, sulu....flylady.com....great stuff there.

so I left the wrapping for today. Plus cut down a LOT on expectations and number of wrapped and purchased presents.

Hyperfocus indeed. Like on anything that crosses my path... which is, right now, crazy boards. heh heh

Decided, after two years of total neglect - that this year I was gonna DO IT. Find me some hip cards and send them little puppies out.

I did, but cut the time too close to get them anywhere on time.

So's I got ever-so-clever -

Hoofed it on over to the local Office Max, shelled out 2.99 - and got myself a bright red-inked "PAST DUE" stamp.

Stamped the back of everyone of those bad boys, I did.

Now everyone knows I know they're late - but at least they will get them. Hopefully, they will laugh, too.

PS: Best reason of all for the generic SEASON'S GREETINGS message, that. Could arrive around Spring and still work.
