I am not excellent at doing one task at a time. In fact, I am terrible at doing one thing at a time. I have ADD. And I'm not sad about it. It just makes me highly productive. And scatterbrained. But mostly productive.

For example...
Last night:
I wanted to be home so I could watch the Oscars. In fact, I holed up in my bedroom all afternoon finishing the movie, 'The Help', so I could see the Oscars.
It is show time, and while watching the show...
I decide to bake cookies.
And then the floor looks dirty, so I clean the floors.
The plants are wilted, I should water them.
Laundry needs to be folded, this is a good time.
Light fixtures are dusty....must dust them immediately.
I have a picture that needs to be framed, so I frame it.
And when those things are done, and there is no cleaning left to do....
I decide to make a quilt...

No, I do not know how to quilt. I just started sewing. And cutting. And moving things around. We'll see how it turns out. And then I realized, that this quilt basically describes my brain. It is scattered. And colorful. And has a very slight pattern, but not much. But it is bright and fun, and all over the place. Me, in a nutshell.

I considered looking up instructions on 'How to Make a Quilt', but decided that ruins all the fun. It's much more exciting to cut and sew and make mistakes until I figure out how to do it.
I am essentially the only person on earth who believes that is the correct way to do things.

I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with this quilt, but maybe my niece will like it.

A day in the life of Kara.
