BeeYard work is a bitch. I really don’t understand why people care so much about their yard. There is nothing about yard work that I find fun, interesting or rewarding. As it happens I have a very nice yard. My wife works hard and has worked hard to make it so. Yes, yes I help her. I have sent my step-son out there many times to cut the grass or clean up, or do the things that his mother might need help with, after all I am a man.

Here are the problems I have with yard work. The sun is out, beatingYard work the hell out of the earth and everything on it. It is 98 degrees, suffocating humidity, and as miserable as a dental appointment. Also, the bees (which I consider to be tantamount to a flying hypodermic needle), and the mosquitoes and all the other bugs are out there flying around scaring the shit out of me laughing as they do it; knowing that at any moment they can sting me and cause me to go running into the house like a little girl.

Whenever there are flying insects, well, here come the spiders and the birds. You never know where the spiders are. You have to watch and inspect anywhere that you might want to put your hand. I know people say the birds are good because they eat the insects. Two things on that; one, they don’t eat nearly enough of them, and two when they are finished they just shit them all over my fence. I am supposed to go outside and clean my own fence that the birds shit all over, as if I work at the fucking zoo.

BeeOn a more personal note, I have a deathly fear of snakes. I don’t often see them but I believe, and know that they are out there. I don’t know which ones are safe or which ones are dangerous, so I err on the side of safety and treat them all as poisonous. People tell me that black snakes are good because they eat poisonous snakes. Is that supposed to make me feel better? I am not Steve Irwin. I don’t have the ability to identify snakes. If one comes near me, I scream, run inside, and then take a shower and throw my pants in the garbage can after wrapping them in a plastic bag.

Yard work poses a threat to my safety. I don’t even enter my backyard without doing a thorough search for nature’s predators. I literally crouch down and slowly walk as if I were sneaking up on someone. Getting bitten by a snake, or a spider is too great a cost for having a nice yard. The coolest thing we ever did to our yard was when we had 25×25 foot concrete slab poured in the backyard. That is a guaranteed 625 square feet of maintenance free real estate. It is the part of my yard I am most proud of. It is the only part of my backyard that I feel safe on.

If you think about it, people spend relatively little time in their yard. I mean besides the time spent doing yard work. Most of the time, people are indoors. They don’t even see their yard that much.

My wife told me one time as I was leaving to got to work, “Hey Tom I am ordering ten yards of mulch today, It will be on the driveway when you get home. Can you help me get it to the backyard?” I said of “course dear.” I did not know what ten yards of mulch was I figured I would help her for an hour or so and then just start my weekend off. When I got home that afternoon, I could not believe what I saw when I pulled into the driveway. I parked my car next to this steaming pile of disappointments, and got out to have a closer look. I remember thinking “Why does my wife hate me this much?” Yvonne usually gets this much mulch every year, and she refers to it as “Mulch Madness”.

Big Giant Pile of Disappointment

I will however say that I do understand the idea of a vegetable garden. I just think that it is not worth it. I realize that there is some satisfaction in knowing that you grew something and now it is on your dinner table. I also know that it is a lot of work having a garden. I just don’t think I could take the disappointment of working that hard knowing that I had worked my ass off in the heat, and at great personal risk, only to have the very work that I have done, sustain life to those little bastards.

Most people take a more offensive approach to yard work. I see them every day spraying for bugs or treating their yard. They declare war on the bugs and pests of the outdoors. I don’t have the energy to declare war on them. I just simply pull out my white flag of apathy and proudly wave it as I give up. I would just surrender my whole yard to them. To me, that is the only way to win. Besides even if I killed all the bugs, and all the weeds, and my yard just looked so good that it could be featured in magazines all over the country, there is still the core problem that would prevent me from working in my yard. I just don’t give a shit!

I am Tom Nardone, and you are welcome.

ADHD Couple Tom & Yvonne Nardone discuss some of the things Yvonne will not allow Tom to buy or own for various reasons. Tom defends himself and the reasons for which he feels he is entitled to such things. Tom believes many of them to be complete bullshit. Also in a unique twist, Yvonne performs in her debut performance on the accordion.

tom-Nardone-irritatedOne characteristic of ADHD People is Irritability. This is my biggest struggle. I am impatient and I have said before the trouble with the earth is its inhabitants. It is usually strangers who give me the most aggravation. They are completely unaware what is going through my mind. When I see their buffoonery in the way that they drive their cars or complain about shit out loud, I have nothing but contempt for them and the air they breathe. I feel as a hostage when I am not able to get away from them. I believe that is my ADHD and while medication keeps it at bay, it is still difficult for me and many ADHD people to just blow off and dismiss.

 

Perhaps many of these people are ADHD. Does that matter while I am being aggravated?

What dose this have to do with
ADHD? I am Tom Nardone and I am ADHD! That is what it has to do with ADHD. My wife and I decided to play one of our favorite games this week. We call it what I guess everyone else who plays it calls it. Would you rather. I think it was funny so it became episode 5. Enjoy. Just a fun show nothing ground breaking.

ADHD / ADD | The ADHD Kitchen, Where Trouble is Always Cooking

In an ADHD household the kitchen is always a source of trouble. Whether it is the cooking the cleaning or the things that break and cause us to have to make unplanned trips off the couch. Yvonne and I in what will likely be a many part series will focus on the food and food preparation issues that plague ADHD households.
In a world that makes no sense to me but perfect sense to her is the source of this broadcast. I do not believe we made any progress but that is not the nature of what we do here at the Tom Nardone Show. We are here to celebrate our differences and prove to the world that in a happy marriage (particularly an ADHD marriage) the Kitchen is not a battle worth fighting.
I am Tom Nardone, and You are welcome.

It is common for ADHD people to make new years resolutions for them selves. Yvonne have  made new years resolutions but not for ourselves. I made Yvonnes resolutions and she made mine. We revealed them to each other on the show.

This is one of two pilot shows we released early on. So please enjoy the ADHD couples New Years Resolution Battle Royale.

ADHD Dating Disasters

We have all been on them and the stories while not pretty are hilarious. I could never seem to get a date and stopped asking girls out. I turned to dating services where I could meet other women who could not get a date. I have dated some real losers and even met the woman who I now refer to as my evil ex--wife

Yvonne talks about her blind dates because she too is ADHD. Yvonne found it difficult to get someone to ask her out.

Tom-Nardone-Dating-ADHD-PodcastWe invite you to learn about why dating sucks and the people who made them suck. Hear about Yvonne’s worst blind date ever who she calls switch-blade Eddie. It is a potpourri of ADHD dating chaos.

 

I am Tom Nardone and you are welcome.

This is our very first Podcast so please forgive the sound I assure you it is entertaining. I thought it would be fitting since this was the first podcast because it was also the first Blog post I have ever written

Whether or not we are ADHD, mostt of us don’t have the luxury of living our lives on our laptops, being accountable only to our followers. We have to get up and leave the house. We have to go to our jobs, therefore, we have to be around people. What that means, hygienically speaking, is that we have to be clean.

This is where my wife, Yvonne likes to butt heads with me and attempt to sway me in my unmovable, inflexible, unyielding, sound, well thought-out, and rigidly held theory about the pants I wear. My theory is as follows:

A pair of pants can go several days, even weeks, yes weeks, plural, before needing to be put in the washer machine. I know many of you are making a face. You are cringing, and/or twitching at the thought of this. You would never consider this as an option, but I would ask that you at least give me a chance to explain to you people why you are all wrong.

The human body simply does not treat a pair of pants in the same fashion that it does other articles of clothing. 

Whether or not ADHD is a factor in this or not, I couldnt tell you for sure. I have found in the ADHD circles I am involved with, Most of the people tend to agree 100% or disagree 100%. There is seemingly no middle ground.

Greetings ADHD People. I am Tom Nardone and I am pleased to bring you up to date on a couple of things. My wife Yvonne and I have been working hard over the past month, and I am now pleased to officially announce “OUR” (ughhh) new Podcast’ on its own website.

 As many of you know we have already released 2 pilot episodes earlier this year and we were appreciative of the response  we got from so many of you.

We will be discussing the things that many ADHD couples discuss only we will be doing it on the show. Yvonne will disagree with me a lot because apparently she likes to argue. I will of course be all to willing to explain to her why she is wrong. We will speak about throwing food into the woods, letting the laundry pile up , and even the wearing of pajamas out in public. I am actually trying to convince Yvonne to do a show in a public store while we wear our pajamas.

 We will have interesting guests who will not be permitted to discuss brain scans, types of diagnoses, medical theories, medication, ways to become more efficient, or most words beginning with the prefix, “neuro”. We support, appreciate and understand the value of all of this, but it is simply just not the function of our show.

We are a real ADHD couple who really have ADHD and while we hope this show may somehow help you, its purpose is to entertain you and help you understand that you are not alone and having ADHD does not have to be a guaranteed miserable existence. I love ADHD people and it has been and remains my privilege to address so many of you. I am so excited to be able to communicate with you in this way. Please dont worry. Tom Nardone is still Tom Nardone.

I had to learn all about Pod-casting in a very short period of time and put a studio together. It looks a lot like my man-cave but with a bunch more equipment in it. If you look carefully you might be able to spot some of it a midst the debris.

Thank You Justine Ruotolo(Miss ADD), Jeff CopperEric Tivers, and Kim Trumbo. You have all inspired us to do this and without you believing in us first, it never would have happened.

Below you can listen to episodes one and two. Early this week we will be releasing episodes 0,1 and 2. We hope to release two shows a week for the next 8 weeks. I know it is an exciting time to be a live and to have ADHD.

The Tom Nardone Show is coming soon. ADHD is about to get a lot more fun.
