Learning to Juggle

Lately I have been trying to multi-task and I feel like I am becoming quite the juggler.  I do feel like I live at the circus sometimes so I guess this is a good outlook on my life right now.

 I spent the last month making items to sell, custom work, gift quilts and all this at the same time I was decorating, cooking, baking and shopping. 

Just as I thought life was going to settle down I realized I still have custom orders to finish, make items for my Etsy shop, a gift quilt to make and I am still cooking, cleaning and shopping.  Life is never dull around here and thank God I don't have little ones to run after or else I would really be in trouble.
my UFO project
Some of my Quiltsy Team members on Etsy have actually listed the number of UFOs they will work on this year, but honestly, I am overwhelmed by the  task of making a list.  I admire them for their commitment and their ability to organize themselves in this manner but for me that would require more time than I feel I have in one day. 

Mult-tasking, I guess the reality of the word is being able to work on more than one thing at a time and still accomplish a goal of finishing.  I don't know if I will ever be able to be a true multi-tasker in the real meaning of the word as I understand it. Maybe I am wrong but if you don't finish anything are you truly multi-tasking or just disorganized?  Time will tell if I am a true multi-tasker, but at least for today I feel like I am accomplishing a few smaller goals.

I know exactly how you feel. There are just not enough hours in a day to do all I want to do. I joined the UFO challenge, but seriously wonder when I am going to have the time to work on it.
