Multi-Tasking 101

I got mixed up with my blogging and chores. Before, chores are my main preoccupation and blogging is my hobby. Now that I am doing a-ok with my blogging and turn it into something more productive, it is now my main occupation and chores turned out to be my hobby.

Good thing about hobby is that… you don’t have to do it all the time. You don’t need to feel guilty when you do not do it. And you are not even accountable when you don’t do it at all. With blogging, you are bound to a greater responsibility. You are expected to do your best to get your ideas across. And you are even predictably all over the computer and the internet than you are all over the kitchen and your monumental laundry.

Mixing business with pleasure is good at times if your business is blogging and your pleasure is chores. But if you interchange the two, you are screwed up. You either end up as a burnt-out blogger or a harassed homemaker. I don’t say that you do blogging as seriously as I am. Actually I am only exaggerating here. I find joy in doing both. And since I am a multi-tasker, I do both blogging and chores at the same time [but only on those chores that you can leave without supervision like laundry and dish-washing]. I don’ know but if you are a SAHW like me, you need to innovate. You need to improvise. You need to do something creative so that you will not die of boredom.

Chores as a hobby sounds good to me!

Sometimes, I look around the house and am surprised at all the clutter. Then I take the time off from blogging to get rid of the clutter and get back to blogging! Chores are a "hobby" for me too, and not one I enjoy! :-D
