I didn't know that there was someone else out there like me. Drives my husband crazy, the zig-zagging through tasks with wild abandon and no thought to continuity (in the short run.) And your writing style -- over the top great!!! And I didn't mind some of the helpful hints on how to make my roses thrive, nevermind survive up here in Alaska. HooooAh to you.

Hugs right back at cha don't ya know. wink wink.

I can't keep on track of anything. I lay in bed thinking of what I have to do and get overwhelmed.
My doctor is no help.
What do you do?
Any tips or hints on how to make your life more productive and less chaotic?

Awwww, Sher. I am the last person to offer 'self-help' tips. Since I retired a year ago it is even worse. Now I don't have the excuse of working 5-7 days a week, 11-14 hour days. All this time and no sense of schedule at all. Indeed, I shy away from 'planning' anything. This from the heavy duty controller who oversaw several mid sized ($50-300m) corporations but can't manage to keep my daily tasks in any order. Mostly I take deep breaths, tell my inner- um, here my vocabulary gets away from me. I shall clean it up. Tell my inner-mother to be quiet and let me do my own thing without 'her' constant nagging. I am ok, and so are you. We march to our own drummer and there is really not much you can do about it. Accept, accept. Love yourself. Revel in your free spirit. LOL It is how you were created, and is therefore beautiful. Just doesn't always rub along well with 'other types' who have a decidedly more orgainzed beat. Okay. Now I am really laughing. I married an engineer of all people. How nuts is that! But it works, and I think heaven every day for him, just like he is. Well, mostly. :) Take care, and happy gardening. Mary
