Like Mother Like Daughter (scary huh!)

I had the funniest conversation with my mother today. We often lament the craziness that is our lives.  I have very little doubt where my ADD comes from.  It is so funny because we were talking about taking our medication. She was saying she doesn't understand why she has such a hard time remembering to take it. We talked about how annoyed we get with well meaning people who suggest things like "put it by your coffee" or "put it with your toothbrush".  I know the fact that it isn't that simple doesn't make sense to those of you who suggest it.  I know that it should work.  Guess what. It doesn't.  I am not even going to try to explain why. Just know if it were that easy I wouldn't need you to make the suggestion :)

Then she tells me she was supposed to be cleaning house today but instead was doing windows. Let me tell you, I get the whole empty the closets to clean the house thing honestly.  Then we get to talking about journals.  I LOVE journals. I have ton of them. I like to write in them for a week or so and then stop. I am always finding journals where I write about how I can't believe I didn't write in my journal. What does my mom have? A journal where about every 3 years she writes a post about how this time will be different and she is going to write in the journal. 

And Mom so you know I agree. It is great to know there is someone else out there at least almost as crazy as I am LOL.



  1. I have a TON of 1/4 written in journals. You're not crazy. I love finding the perfect new journal. And then....

  2. What was sooo funny is she said "I should read this more often it is fun to read the old stuff I wrote" then as she is flipping through she read an entry that said "I should read these more often it is fun to read the old stuff I wrote". At that point I was laughing so hard I could barely breath LOL
