Has Anyone Seen My Multi-Tasking Mind?

Sometimes, I concern myself.

For example, in the last three weeks I have ran the washer through a whole cycle with only one pair of socks in it, opened up the dryer and found that I ran in for 70 minutes...empty, and today I was starting the washer and put a dryer sheet in instead of detergent.

The fact that these are all laundry-related incidents proves nothing except that I do LOTS of laundry!

I think the bigger issue is that I am getting older, and apparently am losing my mind.
I have to say that the one that got me the most was the empty dryer. I walked back to check the back door before I went to get the kids from school and saw that the dryer still said 70 minutes. I thought to myself, "Hmmm, I must have forgotten to turn it on." I then proceeded to do so and then left.

The thought to LOOK in it never even crossed my mind.

When I got home with the kids, I went back to the laundry room to fold "the clothes". I opened the door and...

...empty. Seriously? (sigh)

I think I'm losing my multi-tasking edge. Are there vitamins for that? I am a mom of three, I have to have my multi-tasking mind in peak condition so that I can stay one step ahead of 'em!

Hope you have a happy evening. I'm off to fold the dishes, clean supper and cook the clothes..;)

Wash, fold, put away & repeat...I rest my case! ...lol

The only cure I have come up with thus far, is to drop some of the load off somewhere else! We just have way to much on our minds and do strange random things, like dry air in the dryer. And between you and me, if anyone questions random things you do, you simply look them square in the eye and tell them, "I meant to do that!"

All I have to say is where are the good old college days when you could bring all your clothes to your moms and she would do your laundry. She did such a good job...I think I'll call her and tell her that!!

Funny post

A couple of weeks ago I found the chocolate milk in the cabinet. I swear I didn't do it. ;)

You are hilarious (please don't ask me how I found you, blog-hopping all over the place)
I admit that I cannot muti-task without burning something or forgetting something.
Hope your week is more productive! ;)
