If I did two things at once, I'd never get anything done.

I did a lot today. I clipped the hedge, helped my husband build a desk from my daughter, cleaned her room and organized it, did two loads of laundry, weed-wacked the front garden, went shopping, cleaned the fish tank, took the garbage out, cleaned the garage, read through the slush pile, checked my e-mail, answered letters, went to the post office, printed up stickers for my daughter's school books, filled out forms for her school, and as I was heading up the stairs with a load of laundry I heard my husband tell my son not to do two things at the same time.
I thought to myself, If I did two things at once, I'd never get anything done. I do five or six things at once.
I'm writing two books, I'm working on three websites, I'm organizing English lessons for three children and one adult, and I still have to think of doing housework, gardening, and take care of myself because I'm a Leo and Leos have to pamper themselves - so I have to have time to do my nails, my hair, and make sure I get my gym class and golf schedule down! Heavens! How can anyone only do one thing at a time?

Ha! You're just like me. I am a multi-tasker and sometimes I see that as a fault as I have so many things going on at once that sometimes it becomes a distraction. But aren't we clever? (And industrious!)

How can any mom do only one thing at once?

It's hard to just do one thing at a time!

I saw Martha Stewart on a behind the scenes documentary and she was quadruple tasking... talking on the phone, typing on the computer, sorting fabric & having breakfast all at the same time.
