Life is busy. Life is hectic. Life sucks sometimes. So it is nice to stop and smell the pencils in the middle of the day and realize that life is also fun. Smencils (cool smelly pencils)...they make work fun.
On that note I have found myself in the midst of busyness this week. Besides my usual stay home and take care of four kids and a house stuff, I have a few projects on the go. I am organizing the end of the year homeschooling graduation, a track meet, a running program, selling meat, preparing for a garage sale, preparing for Peyton's birthday, Lara's birthday, Soccer season AND my husband leaving for 3 weeks.
When I refer to being able to multi task I am referring more to chewing gum, picking socks off the floor while talking on the phone, wiping a nose and thinking about supper. Multi tasking several large projects is not really my thing. I like to do things well and trying to do EVERYTHING at the same time has left me with answering e-mails and looking stuff up on the Internet for 3 hours at night...and no that does not include my blog. I get a little boggled and I lose track of things when I have too much to decide and think about. So far I'm hanging in there but I don't know how long I'll last ;)
My hats off to ALL working moms who have important task oriented jobs, kids AND a social life. I don't know how you do it.
