Hi everyone -
I've posted a couple times, but I'm new & I'll come out of lurkdom to pass this
on to all of you - it sounds like there's quite a few of you who can relate!!
A quilting friend sent it to me because it's WAY too true!  At least it made me
laugh.........
Mary

Now I know what is wrong with ME.  Does anyone else have this
syndrome?????
Just wanted to let you know that I have recently been diagnosed with a
very serious condition and there's no hope I will ever recover.  The
scientific  world is frantically searching for a cure...  This is an
ailment many of us suffer from and  may not as yet have been diagnosed,
however, now you may be able to  discuss it with your loved ones and try to
explain
what really happened to you all those times you tried so hard to accomplish
something and didn't.

BUT FIRST SYNDROME

I call it "But First" Syndrome. You know. It's when you decide to do the
laundry. So you start down the hall with the laundry, but  then see the
newspapers on the table. OK, you'll do the laundry. . .

BUT FIRST you decide to put the newspapers away. So on your way in to
put the newspapers away, you notice the mail on the table. OK, you'll put
the newspapers away. .
BUT FIRST you'll pay that bill that needs to be paid. So you look for
the checkbook. Oops...there's the empty glass from yesterday on the coffee
table.  OK, you'll pay the bill. . . .

BUT FIRST you need to put the glass in the sink. You head for the kitchen.
Darn it, there's the remote for the TV. What's it doing here?  Okay, you'll put
the glass in the sink.

BUT FIRST you need to put the remote away. Head for the living- room
Aaagh!   Stepped on the cat. Cat needs to be fed. Okay, you'll put the
remote away. . .

BUT FIRST you need to feed the cat... So, here's what happens at the end
of the day: Laundry is not done, newspapers are still on the floor, glass is
still
on the table, bills are unpaid, checkbook is still lost, and the cat ate the
remote control ...

And, when you try to figure out how come nothing got done all day, you
are baffled because .....you KNOW you were BUSY ALL DAY!!  That's the
"BUT FIRST" Syndrome."

So now we have identified one of my major problems!  Anyone else have
this problem?

Mary - I'm *always* being distracted by other things that I think needs to
be done first!  Glad to know that others suffer from this as well.  < LOL >

Hope you come out of lurkdom more often!

That reminds me of somebody's sig line from way back: "Easily distracted
by shiny obj-- hey, what's that?"

It also reminds me of stepping into my favorite LQS, Rosie's Calico
Cuboard in San Diego.

"I'll just go over the the fat quarter bin and... Ooh, look at the new
bolts over there next to the ... Hey there's a sale in the book room...
Wow, look at that red being cut... "

Hey Roberta, I know that store!! I got some great "Panda" fabric from them
off of eBay. They were Very Nice & seem to have a great selection (from the
auction listings I've seen). I wondered if they were a "physical" place or
just a *** store.
