There Was a Time When I Was the Queen of Multi-tasking!

October 22, 2017 2:35pm CST
It is close to 3:30 now and I am heading to the kitchen with my laptop. I have been binge watching season 1 of "This is Us." I am currently watching disc 4 of 5. So, while I prepare the lasagna for tonight's dinner, I am going to watch the rest of disc 4, do the dishes, and maybe start organizing my cupboards. This may seem like I bit off a bit more than I can chew. I will probably only get the lasagna and dishes done while watching the show. Little Miss is sleeping and I know she will be up and attum soon! I was once the Queen of Multi-tasking. Now I am just a peasant. How good are you at multi-tasking?

I just seemed to have lost my focus. I can do 2 tasks at a time though.

I stink at multi-tasking. I let the kitchen sink overflow due to trying to multi-task. The overflow from the sink did result in a thorough mopping of the kitchen floor, though.

Oh I have done that a time or two. My husband just looked at me wondering if I had lost my mind. I yelled at him and asked if he could at least lend a hand and grab some towels to sop up the water.

I multi task fairly well, not as well as I did when I had three young boys in the house.

Isn't that funny how that works? I had 4 children and I swear I grew an extra set of arms when I needed them.

@ElusiveButterfly Because we had no choice. We can usually do what we have to.

It depends on my mood.

I have so much to do and nobody to help me do it. Therefore I am always trying to do more than one thing at a time.

@ElusiveButterfly That sounds nerve wracking.

@sallypup it can be quite trying on the nerves. I now let things go if I don't feel up to doing them. I do have the right to sit and relax after work as well.

Yes, but can you chew gum at the same time?

@BarBaraPrz I have taken a chunk out of the side of my cheek when chewing and trying to talk. Ouch!

I'm not very good at multi-tasking at all or ever...I like one chore at a time and I do usually celebrate each one when its over...

I have 3 hats that I am working on for my son and dil baby shower this month. Putting the finishing touches on each of them this week. Then I need to add a zipper to a baby sweater, and finish off a blanket that I crocheted. Never a dull moment for me.

@PainsOnSlate I would like to be able to just focus on one thing at a time. That would be lovely!

I was much better many years ago. Now I can only do a few things at once.

@ElusiveButterfly there are times I can't do multitasking. That is when I have to write something important for my blogs or for my main writing site HubPages.

Seems that as we age we slow down a bit.

I was great at multitasking at work when I had to. Now, I suck at it. I lose track of what I was doing and don't get much done since I keep switching between tasks.

That is usually the problem I have. I should just start a task and finish it before moving on to the next.

I think I'm still pretty good at multi-tasking. I was a past master of it at work.

I used to be pretty good at it. Lately, I seem to not be able to manage everything at once like I used to though. I think I am going soft.

As long as my multitasking is right here on the computer, I'm fine. I could not do several things at one time any more. I did once, but like you, I'm now a peasant.
