Multitasking

I’m thinking that to live a creative life, you have to be pretty good at multitasking.
Bench Monday

For instance, you could be standing on your dining room’s built-in cabinet for a Bench Monday picture, just after you put the chicken in the oven and just before the handyman comes to give you an estimate on painting the exterior of your house.

Quick and dirty pair of experimental earrings

Or you could be whipping up a quick pair of earrings for yourself, after getting inspired, while browsing through Etsy, which occurred while you were also cleaning up the supper mess.  You could sand and buff those earrings the following morning, after packing the kids’ lunches, while waiting for the school bus.

Oh, and right now? You could be blogging while eating breakfast and answering business email.

Just a hunch, but this might be why it takes me so long to get work done around here…

  3. Multi-tasking is a female thing. My hubby says most men are not capable of it. He can’t understand how I can knit, watch TV, tend supper and surf blogs at the same time. He accuses me of wasting time on the Internet. This is the same man who watches two TVs at the same time, each on a different cop show. I have no clue if he remembers what he saw!
