I thought you would all get a kick out of this.  The MS has really affected my ability to multi task. 
Yesterday I was doing the family's laundry.  Well, I was washing a pot in the kitchen sink and realized I needed to change the wash out.  I then realized that I hadn't even washed my husband and my clothes!!  (I had thought I was all done with wash at that point!)  So, I got our wash and was walking through the kitchen and saw the water in the kitchen sink was still running and lots of bubbles!!!  I never turned the water off earlier!  It amazes me I can find my own head!

Hey Michelle!

:)) WOW!! Be careful! I'm glad u found the water running when u did...before it ran out on the floor! I don't think i've had any probs like that, but i can tell u that i oftentimes mix up my work. I mean i'll do or go to do part of one task as if it belonged to another. The other night i was preparing lunch stuff for my girls for the next day and getting ready to freeze their bottles. (They take bottles of frozen juice to school instead of buying cokes.) Well, at the same time, i was thinking of making their sandwiches...something i wouldn't even be doing til the next morn. I got the lunch bags out and promptly put them in the freezer...and left the bottles on the counter. My girls thought it was too funny! Funny to me because at that time i wasn't at all in a hurry and was, in fact, ahead of my schedule and was just doing 'tidy up' things. Of course that's an easy mistake, but of the kind i've never had such an obvious prob with prior to the issues i have now. O well...might as well enjoy it! ;) Take care...and watch that water!!

Ummm, I once did a load of laundry and forgot to put the clothes in the water. I turned the washer on, added the soap to the water and shut the lid. Went upstairs and was working on something else before it dawned on me what I had done. I definitely was a taco short of a combo meal that day! (That was just a few months ago.)

Multi-tasking. Something I had to give up, LONG ago. If I don't focus on one thing at a time, none of the things that need to be done will be done right, or well. Funny, in a painful sort of way...
