...so tired...it's been a long day...
But first, there's something I want to ask. How many steps are there in vacuuming your house? Yeah, I guess it's a weird question, but please bear with me.
Mom and I were having a discussion this evening, and to my surprise she asked me what the steps are in vacuuming the house. This is what I said:
1) Get out the vacuum cleaner.
2) Plug it in.
3) Vacuum the living room.
4) Vacuum the hall.
5) Vacuum Tall One's room.
6) Vacuum my room.
7) Vacuum my parent's room.
8) Maybe vacuum my parent's bathroom (for some strange reason it is carpeted).
9) Unplug vacuum cleaner.
10) Wind up power cord.
11) Put vacuum cleaner back up.
These are all the steps I gave her. And I definitely listed off eleven when we were talking -- she counted them! In reply, my mom said that these are the steps she follows:
1) Get out vacuum cleaner.
2) Push it around the house.
3) Put vacuum cleaner back up.
...why can't things be that simple for me? For her it's three easy simple steps. For me it's eleven steps. We might take the same amount of time, but...there's quite a difference.
It seems like I'm making things more difficult for myself. And yet, this is just the way my brain is programed. Maybe it's my ADHD?
So tell me, how many steps do you take when vacuuming?
