The Life of A Multitasker!


I forgot how hectic working outside of the house is. I mean as a single parent, multitasking came easy. Book keeper, laundress, therapist, nurse, nurturer, housekeeper, conflict-solver, and so much more. But add on Being all of those, a fiance, outside of the house worker and an author and Whoooooo. I'm a friggin basket case!

I love the insanity, and thrive well in the Chaos. Even if I'm a tad bit late. I have an entire new list of characteristics to use with main ones for both heroes and heroines!

I have a new process.

At work I.....

Check and file email into folders.

I answer what I can and toss the rest.

I write for 45 mintues at lunch and email my editors with questions I have.

When I get home :P

I make dinner and spend time with the family and when their bed time hits, I gather what I want to write before bed or in the morning at work.

On the weekends. I have one day to just write and the other day for the kids and housecleaning!

The kids take turns making dinner so that I can have some extra time.

The best part is. More money means more vaction and author conventions!

How do you juggle it all? I want to know!

Have a great one!

Fun post.
My sons are grown with families of their own now, and I thoroughly enjoy it when they look at me and ask how we ever managed...

I've been fortunate to be able to stay home. My mornings are full of checking emails; blogging; and facebook. I do a few household chores or errands, then lunch and spend the afternoon writing/editing. When the kids get home from school, I supervise homework, fix dinner, and depending on what night it is, I may continue writing before bedtime.

The two years I did work at the school, I was grumpy due to no time to write. And when summer arrived, the words poured from my pen for three weeks!

Love the graphic! I don't know how we do it all. Multitasking is not pretty, but necessary, especially when you have an EDJ as I do. :)
