SYW: On ADHD, Nature, Talking, and a Dog

Monday means Melanie shares questions for Share Your World.

Questions:

Are you a clean or messy person?
I try to keep myself and things around me clean, but I am excessively messy. It doesn’t help that I have ADHD. I’m incorrigibly disorganized. Every once in awhile, I will discipline myself and unclutter a space because I can’t stand it anymore. But come to my house and you will definitely find a mess!

If I asked you to describe yourself in five words – what would they be?
enthusiastic, talkative (see below), adaptable, procrastinator, ADHD (using initials is only one word!)

Do you enjoy being out in nature?
I love it! It’s my favorite place to be! Without it during this Covid crisis, I would go crazy!

What could you spend all day talking about?
Wow, this is hard, because I love to talk! And if I spend the whole day talking, I would get into a variety of subjects, but my favorites are: politics, traveling, languages (including speaking in a couple of foreign ones! 🙂 ) Pretty much what you see me blog about is what I like to talk about.


Attitude of Gratitude:(OPTIONAL)

I am grateful that our granddog is home safe.

Two weeks ago our daughter & son-in-law got a dog to join their family of two humans and three cats. She is shy and scared – she may have been abused in her former home. Last week, our daughter was out walking her and she was startled by a kid coming up from behind her on a scooter. She dropped the leash and the dog – who was also scared of the scooter – took off. My husband went over and helped them look for her but no luck.

It’s hard to see her on this couch which is the same color as she is, but she hardly ever leaves it!
I hope to get better photos of her soon!

Next morning about 5:30 am, our son-in-law got a phone call – he was up already, getting ready for work. The dog, who had a tag with both of their cellphone numbers, had been found but she was injured. Apparently, her leash (still attached) got caught on something and she tried to get away, tearing the pads of her paws up pretty badly. He went to get her and they took her to the vet, who prescribed some ointment and said she was not to walk for 2 weeks! So they have to carry her to get her food, go outside, etc. It’s a good thing she is not very big!

Also, they gave her a new name. Her name had been Winter, which seemed odd – none of us could figure out why she’d be called that (she’s black with white paws and a white strip on her chest) – and they changed it to Lydia.

One thought on “SYW: On ADHD, Nature, Talking, and a Dog

  1. Thanks so much for Sharing Your World! There’s a discussion going about the word “messy” and the word “clean” versus tidy and cluttered. Cluttered, which I am too, isn’t messy. It’s clutter. Messy might imply one is not as clean as they might be…and it sounds like you are clean, but cluttered! ADHD does indeed qualify as ONE word! 😆 I’m sorry you have to deal with it, but it sounds like you deal with it well. I’m so sorry about the doggie, and I’m glad they got her back. It’s scary when a dog gets lost…one reason my boys are chipped as well as have their tags! It’s their phone call home again I think! 🙂
