Laurent & Brookie, I used to be like that. But I was single for so many years, I really didn't know HOW to host a big party. Just the thought of it stressed me out. It wasn't until I had kids that I think I mastered the skill of multi-tasking (haha). It seems second nature now to always be doing 100 things at once. Stress. Hell, I live daily with it, doesn't even phase me anymore. Also, my husband is a total people person. He loves having barbecues during football season and Super Bowl parties. For him, the more the merrier. So I think he helped me change in that regard, helped me become more of a party person/organizer.
