Doing other things while watching tv

If my favorite sitcom is a repeat, I usually do the following: wash the cats' dishes, wash my own dishes, clean the litterboxes, get my work organized for the next day, and check my email. If the movie I'm watching on tv turns out to be a dud, I may or may not leave it on, but you can be sure that I'm doing other things such as checking email, reading papers, doing dishes, etc. And even when the programs are good, I find that I can't sit still for three hours in a row. I get itchy and get up, look out the window, make a cup of tea, look for something to eat with it, play with the cats, etc. Do you find yourself multitasking while watching tv?

I clip coupons while I watch TV. Sometimes if the show isn't that good, I'll be reading the paper or looking through a magazine.

I am the type of person who could do several things while watching TV. I think I have developed the art of multitasking. LOL! Sometimes, my TV is just on while I am doing other things like checking quizzes or recording them. Or, while I am working on some crafts like my beaded accessories. Sometimes, I am also doing some myLot activities while watching TV. I guess, at some point it has become helpful especially when I am thinking of a topic to work on or when I am responding to some discussions.

I am almost always doing something else while watching TV. A lot of the time, I'm here on this site while the TV is on. But, if the show is one of my favorites or it's really good, I will get off the computer and watch it intently. Most shows aren't good enough for me to pay a whole lot attention to. I mostly watch while pages are loading up or tasks are being done.

It's so funny you start this discussion because I always am doing other things when I watch tv. I drive my husband crazy, because I can't just sit and watch a movie or show without folding laundry, doing some work on the computer, clipping coupons, etc. I think I just naturally have to be doing 40 things at once all the time. haha

I am known for doing other things while I am watching television. Otherwise I would fall asleep in the chair. So I do cloths, wash dishes, sweep floor and other things. I end up falling asleep if I sit to watch television.
