“There goes a bird….”


Every time that I sat down today to write a post, I have been distracted.  Either by the phone, doorbell, or a bird flying by.  Are you getting the idea?  Yes, I was easily distracted today, but I have accomplished some things.  Had a nice visit with my Mom this…

“Yes, I am going to the store tonight,  make a list of what you want.”

Sorry, my teenager was asking me a question.

“I need to be home by 6pm tonight Mom” 

That would be my other teenager informing me that her Eye Dr appointment needs to be finished by 6pm tonight.  Apparently I have control of how fast the Doctor works.

Anyway back to what I was saying.  I had a nice, relaxing visit with my Mom this morning and I also got the bottom storage area of my China Closet cleaned out.  I was…

Wait a minute, the timer on the oven is going off. 

Okay, I am back, I didn’t want my supper to suffer the same fate as my Banana Bread did one time.  Lets just say it was a really dark, dark, dark  shade of brown, perhaps a little black.

Back to the China Closet. I got it cleaned out for I was looking for something that I needed.  I unfortunately didn’t find what I wanted, but I found some other things that I had stored in there and forgotten about.  Things that brought back memories, so may have taken a little longer to put away again.

Excuse me the phone is ringing….Telemarketer, never mind! 

“Get ready, we need to leave soon!” 

Sorry, I had to remind my daughter that if she wants to make it out of the Eye Doctor’s office on  time then we can’t be late.  Which means I need to make sure I am ready to go.

So how many times do you get distracted during the day?

Have a great evening and ….. Oh, look at that bird!

  1. This inquisitive mind want to know … where ever did you find this word? I enjoy learning new words, especially ones that I may be able to slip into a conversation should an opportunity arise. I too, find myself more easily distracted these days. I attribute this too my oncoming old age, that seems to have already arrived while my mind was otherwise engaged. I believe that I must suffer from paraprosexia (it sounds like a contagious disease). I neglected to say that this is a thoroughly fantabulous post! Thank-you!

    • LOL at your inquisitive mind, just like me! You can find anything on Pinterest! All I did was type in distraction in the search bar on the Pinterest site and that picture came up. I was like Well that is cool! 🙂
      Glad you enjoyed the post! Have a Fantabulous evening!
      Yes, I do believe it is contagious disease, the cure for it is… Oh there goes that bird again! 🙂


      • I asked each of my three grown children if they knew this word, only one could answer correctly. My son knew it without hesitation, my youngest daughter thought it was a fatal disease and I can not even repeat what my oldest daughter guessed!! I will await the lifesaving cure, my very life is in your hands.

  2. “Distraction is the only thing that consoles us for our miseries, and yet it is itself the greatest of our miseries.” ~ Blaise Pascal, 17th century French Philosopher.

    (Pascal also noted that “all of man’s problems come from his inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”)
