I just threw our annual summer BBQ, and it would have been called the party of the season, if we still referred to entertaining that way. Most of us have stopped using the word entertaining as a verb. In fact, "entertaining" is now passive - and it's an adjective.
For example, you might refer to one of the less disgusting, more amusing antics of the Kardashians, as entertaining. As in, "The Kardashians were less hateful and foul with each other this week. The show was almost entertaining."
But, I digress (as I often do).

"How on earth do you do it all?"
Now, I'm not going to go there, really, because we all know that no one does it all. So you've gotta assume that I don't, either. And it's true. I don't garden, I don't raise chickens, I barely watch TV, and I've got several sewing projects that have been waiting for completion for about four years.
But yep, I do write, and I get paid for it, and I run a blog network that earns revenue. And I also write books, raise three kids, and do my best to get dinner on the table most nights. So it's a legitimate question, because it is a lot.Related: 25 things women will never understand about men
My answer contains several parts, so I'll just tackle part of it today. And that part is one of my favorite tricks of the trade: delegating.
I do a lot, but I don't do all that's required of me because I delegate quite a few of those jobs to other people. I tap the skills and...Read More »
