Lost my focus

I am so focused on decorating, gift buying, baking, and spending more time with the family, that I can not hardly stay on task at work.

How about you guys?

Very much the same. The 20th is my last day until January & I can't wait. Since I work from home, I found myself wrapping gifts while listening to a company meeting. How's THAT for split focus! LOL!

Same here. Unfortunately for me, this is not a good time of year to be distracted. Too much to get done and deadlines for all.

Me too, so many finals to grade and then the start of next semester. It is crazy busy! Good luck getting everything done.

HA! Well, you know, some of those meetings only require partial attention anyway! Sometimes when I'm physically in a meeting like that or when there's a part that doesn't pertain to me, I find myself making my grocery list or thinking about my son's boy scouts field trip or something totally off the wall. Hopefully I don't look like I'm not paying attention!

Between the move (new office building as of monday), finals, two presentations, two group projects, and Christmas, I have lost focus, too.  Add to it, I now have a window to see outside.  I'm sure once the "newness" wears off, the window will be less of a distraction.

 I'm having trouble getting into the Christmas spirit this year, so I haven't had the problem yet.

I'm with you!! I'm so into buying presents and tracking where they are, it's become a sad obsession. Haha!

I'm getting anxious to go shopping. We haven't started other than when we bought dh's laptop. As far as I know we're planning to do Christmas with the inlaw's next weekend due to them going to TN. I think having the extra time to "window shop" has made me second guess somethings lol.
