Old Friends and New Friends

Had a great time this week connecting with some friends. I am truly grateful for all the friends that God has brought into my life over the years. One of my friends that I've known since I was a teenager moved back from Oregon recently and hanging out with her is like hanging out with family. Another new friend that I got to hang with this week blessed me tremendously with new ideas and a fresh way to look at some things in my life.
Then I had a question for all you bloggers that I think will be kinda fun. I am a person who loves to have people around 24/7. Maybe that's why I have 4 children. Anyway, even if I am not necessarily doing anything with them but just living my life, I just enjoy sharing my life with others. BUT part of being a person who loves to have others persons around 24/7 is that I have really crappy time-management skills. I would rather just sit and chit chat or play with kids then do the things in life that need to be done.
SO here's the question: Can you be a person who has both good time manangment skills as well as good people skills at the same time??
This is a honest question because to me I don't see how you can. I would rather say no to the clock and pretend that it's not there than say no to a person who might need something or my kids who just want to play.
I need better time-management skills. I think that the two are somewhat related. What do you all think?? Maybe, it's a matter of priorities. Priority to me are the people in my life.

hubby is like you, would rather just hang out with friends & family than do the stuff. he is pretty weak in the time management department, but he is working on it.

i,on the other hand, am not always so people friendly. i need to get the stuff done, on time. i am working on this also.

we are usually the last few people out of the church because he is still chatting. i am thinking about all the stuff we have to do before going home.

we compliment each other, when it isn't causing dissention.

I think you can do both, but one probably will come naturally (for you, the friends) and the other will come through discipline and practice (the organization and responsibility part).
