I want to be with my lot and read and still do many courses i am signed up for I am going to be multitasking. I am going to do a little bit for about 10 minutes of each and go through my day doing that. That is how much I love all of you on my lot. Yes, I enjoy my classes very, very much, but i also missed My lot on most of the Sunday and almost all day Monday. I also missed my reading and will not stop either of these two activities for my classes. I will try to participate on my other laptop as i will have Grammarly to correct my grammar. I will use my Kindle for getting recipes for why i will tell you in my next post to be written in a little while shortly. But first, i have to set up my other laptop =) Picture credit Pixabay of somebody multitasking

That's great you are good at multitasking for me I find it a little difficult when I do something I really focus on one task at a time.

I make sure to at least spend a little time on here every day. Sometimes it's hard when I have to work or have other things to do. But it's fun to be on here.

@susan2015 I agree, it is fun to be on here. Luckily, these courses are optional and free. I don't really have to do anything I don't want to do, I can do household chores to keep the house tidy between times, I took a load a laundry to the washer right after I posted this discussion. Wait there is one thing i don't want to do, Clean my desk and room. (smiles) But my sister gets so upset when my room is as messy as it is now. She is coming over to take me to dinner and do something for me she doesn't trust me doing. And i don't blame her.

so your saying with everything you have going you gonna need what 8 arms to do them all ? I know how that goes it's a task that only few can do & keep up with all at the same time.

@sugartoes Well. It never hurts to try. While i love my lot if I can be on here a few hours a day, I am happy. I get up early, and i never seemed to have a problem multitasking in the past. I will take a day off of classes for a fourth of July and spend half my day reading and half my day on my lot. I am totally dedicating that day to the fun that isn't like studying though that is fun.

@Marty1 do you have windows 10?? cause if you DO you can do like I do & split screen the 2 or even have 4 screens at one time I do my lot face book & clicx sense all at the same time & do very well at it too.
when you have more than one with it helps this is why I went with windows 10 after I seen what I could do with it before I got mine just the other day 6-17-16

@coffeebreakwhatever Yeah, I do think mothers multitask. But i have never been a mother to a human before; I am the mother to a hamster and i sometimes multitask with him When he is in his exercise ball he likes me to be with him, so i read while he rolls around knocking into all my furniture.

@icacay1 I meant to say why I am writing down recipes in my home. Am not putting a recipe on discussions. I know that is against the rules. Sorry I wrote it wrong

@judyev Yes, you are sage, I decided i am going to spend a couple of hours a day reading then spend the rest of time on my lot. And research for my book and another research writing site. I don't want to do my classes. I enjoy the other activities more. Plus it takes just too much time to do the classes, and i am rearranging, organizing and cleaning my house too making it mine. My sister was a bit worried i would be moving furniture =) Who knows I just may move some furniture around.

@1210800460 I plan for my day, but i never seem to have enough time to do everything i want to do that day. Thus the multitasking. I will only be on my lot a few hours in total. I will be up to 11 pm and is only 12:50 pm. I have plenty of time to do what I plan

Good Luck. thats sounds a very 'multitasking' plan....I just joined this site a month ago and I am enjoying it too BUT I find I need to go back to my reading too. especially as lots of reading suggestions have come p from people here.

@Marty1 I think it's great to do all the things you like. Cause sometimes people just don't have time to do it so they miss out on doing something they love. As long as you can handle doing it all without feeling overwhelmed and you're happy then that's great!
