    Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder.

    Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

    This is how it manifests:

    I decide to water my garden.

    As I turn on the hose in the driveway,

    I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.

    As I start toward the garage,

    I notice mail on the porch table that brought up from the mail box

    I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

    I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage
    can under the table and notice that the can is full.

    So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the
    garbage first...

    But then I think since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I
    take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

    I take my check book off the table and see that there is only one
    check left.

    My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to

    my desk where I find the can of Pepsi I'd been drinking.

    I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the
    Pepsi aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

    The Pepsi is getting warm and I decide to put it in the
    refrigerator to keep it cold.

    As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi, a vase of flowers on
    the counter catches my eye--they need water.

    I put the Pepsi on the counter and discover my reading glasses

    I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them
    back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

    I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with
    water and suddenly spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen

    I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I'll be looking for
    the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table,

    so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first
    I'll water the flowers.

    I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on
    the floor.

    So, I set the remote back on the table, get some towels and wipe
    up the spill.

    Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning
    to do.

    At the end of the day:

    the car isn't washed

    the bills aren't paid

    there is a warm can of Pepsi sitting on the counter

    the flowers don't have enough water,

    there is still only 1 check in my check book,

    I can't find the remote,

    I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what I did with the
    car keys.

    Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today,

    I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day, and I'm
    really tired.

    I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help
    for it, but first I'll check my e-mail....
