Multi-tasking -- Not For Me

Is that a fairly current, newly coined term? I don't know for sure, but I do know that the concept escapes me. Well, at least the implementation of the concept. I suppose at times it seems I am capable of all that it seems to imply as I put the gear in overdrive and focus on getting dinner served, the table set, and a conversation carried out -- but mostly not.

Yeah, not so much.

Female I may be, but none the less, I get frazzled when there is too much going on.

My brain is fried when trying to sort out travel arrangements for a household of young adults with two vehicles and seven schedules.
When sauteing the onions in a luscious cup of butter, it all burns on my watch if I am trying to change the laundry over at the same time.
If daughter number six needs my attention and son number two knocks on the door with a question all while hubby calls for a clean T-shirt, I am undone.

Guess I'm old, or out of that league, or not in on this supposedly feminine aptitude.

Whatever the reason, I'm looking for ways to simplify life, to slow down the pace, to do one thing at a time. And in a houseful of young adults and teens, with an eleven year old thrown in, that is not always easy to do.

Yeah, not so much.

Young adults should be sorting out their own travel arrangements. Just make sure you get the vehicle when YOU want it!
