So Much To Do, So Little Time!

I'm feeling a little frustrated. I should be in bed right now (it's after midnight), but I have to stay up late to get everything done that I want to do. Maybe I have too many hobbies. But I don't want to give any of them up. Or maybe I'm just a little too anal about keeping my house clean. But I wouldn't be able to relax and feel good about myself if I didn't keep it clean. Maybe I don't manage my time efficiently. But I think I'm pretty good at planning my day out and prioritizing. And then there's the laundry, the grocery shopping, our business (the real job that makes the money), the husband that feels like he needs attention, grandchildren I like to have visit, and the list goes on. So I try to take care of all the "have to's" before I can justify my "want to's". I also love to garden if it's nice out. I like to cook and make two meals a day at least 5 days a week. Since my Bob works from home I make a sit down lunch as well as dinner. Now let me make it clear, I'm not complaining. I have a nice life and I'm very fortunate in many ways. I love being a domestic goddess and trophy wife --- HA! HA! HA!, but it takes up a lot of my knitting, quilting, writing, reading time. Sometimes I wish I didn't have to sleep at all and I just can imagine so much more that I could accomplish. No, I am not complaining at all. I'm just trying to figure out a schedule for myself.
Well, I am getting tired now, so I'll turn on my little book light and read for a while, then I'll lay there and contemplate my schedule for tomorrow.

Sounds like you are the queen of multi-tasking!

Stay's the healthy thing to do.

You asked where I get the pictures on my blog. Flickr share. Or I google for clip art. :)

Two meals a day? Heavens honey, no wonder you don't have any time! Maybe you could plan a lunch that makes up most of your evening chicken breasts for lunch but cook extra and make a quick chef's salad for dinner. Or pot roast for lunch and barbeque sandwiches for dinner with the leftover roast. If you don't take time to do the things you love you will, at some point, come to resent the time you're giving to others. Or maybe not, but I would. blessings, marlene

I'm not complaining, but----
Now I have to follow My Bob into the car dealership as his car needs something checked on it. Then since he won't have a car and I'll be with him, I have to go along with him on a couple of his appointments.
So I guess I am complaining. But thanks to my friends, GJ and SBYL, for the good advice and encouragement.
