a little bit of multitasking

I’m something of an octopus

With arms from left and right and front and back,

Stirring coffee, typing mail and reading books,

And then there’s washing, dishes, hoovering.

I somehow get it done, incredibly,

I wish they’d see me on

The other side of

The screen.

One thing that has happened while we have been in lockdown, is that I have become the queen of multitasking. I used to go to school and do my lessons and planning, I would drive home and then collapse on the sofa.

Now, I somehow manage to squeeze the vacuuming in between two lessons, I get a run done when I have a free period, I do the dishes at lunch and I’m even crocheting as I do my lessons!

I wonder if my students would be impressed with me if they saw everything that was going on on the other side of the screen. Probably not. But I’m pretty impressed with myself….

Much Love

    I know just what you mean! Already today (it’s just before 7:00 AM where I live as I write this), I’ve been: checking email; checking in with my online class; doing laundry; eating breakfast; booking an appointment for my father-in-law to get a Covid vaccine; checking my blog for comments. When you really think about how much multi-tasking we do, it’s exhausting!
