If only I could finish one task at a time:
1 My husband asks me to look up how much he made last year. On my way upstairs, I bring up the shampoo on the steps and put it in the upstairs closet.
2 The closet is a mess, so I organize it and throw away old medicines. I get a trash bag from downstairs and bring a laundry basket upstairs. The bag isn ‘t quite full so I empty trash cans.
3 While I am in my son’s room, I make the bed and gather dirty laundry. Back downstairs.
4 I throw the dirty clothes in the wash and go back upstairs. I go to my room and put away the clean laundry. I go to the bathroom when I am done and proceed to clean both bathrooms upstairs.
5 The boys’ bathroom has a dirty glass on the sink so back downstairs to put it in the dishwasher.
6 The dishwasher is full so I empty it and then fill it with dirty dishes. I clean the counter and notice a pile of mail.
7 I go through the mail and pay the bills. Back upstairs to file everything away.
8 I decide to rearrange my office and run the vacuum. I may as well do the rest of the house.
9 My husband asks if I looked up his income. Back upstairs to look through the tax returns. While I’m here, I should get a folder ready for this year with notes.
10 Finally, I am done and go downstairs to tell hubby what I found. Now he asks, how much dental coverage do we have through our insurance. Oh boy, here we go again!
