Pulled in Many directions

I've always been a focused person. I'm really good at taking care of one thing at a time, at paying attention to one detail at a time, one person at a time. Since becoming a mom, my brain has suddenly been called to be a multitasking brain. It has not handled the transition well. LOL!! I would love to just work on one thing at a time, but it's impossible. The kids, the pets, the house are all demanding my attention all at the same minute, just about every minute of the day. My only escape is into this computer, where I look away from everyone, and sink myself into the screen, and focus. I know that's why so many women get into blogs, and forums, and things like that. They need an escape that is absolutely essential to their sanity. The bedroom, the basement, the backyard are all insufficient, because it's still too hard to ignore all that's going around you, and a physical escape is something that children and pets will not stand for. The kids pile around you, the dog jumps on you, the bunny thumps. Somehow they tend to mess with you less when you're in this little computer corner. Maybe they think you're not "busy" so they have no need to bug you. LOL.

Sweety, I know how you feel. Keep hanging in there until the kids are in school. I love you.

You're right, Chicka! It's definitely an escape for many moms. For me, it's a hobby, but it truly is an escape from reality!
