Where Did It Go?

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

So, there's not time for EVERYTHING I want to get done in a day. I must say there are days that I think, "Wow, that was a really productive day. I'm so glad we got all that done." But most days I think, "Where did the time go? I hardly got ANYTHING done that I thought I would." My windows still aren't cleaned, my toilet bowl and shower still aren't shiny, and the laundry REFUSES to let me catch up. That's not to mention the twenty plus other things that I'd like to get done but have nearly given up hope on such as cleaning off my scrapbook table (let alone actually using it!), organizing my closet, mindlessly watching TV (without folding laundry or tending to some other chore) or reading for pleasure at a leisurely pace.

How did I get so busy? Today I was outside weeding and working on my yard for several hours, working at my at-home job for a couple hours and I spent a couple hours on exercise. I showered, did laundry, tidied up a bit around the house, prepared meals, tended to my children and POOF...the day is pretty much over. Well, blogging isn't making the work go away, so I'm off to fold more laundry and maybe I'll get a window or 2 done.

    I totally understand... but remember your self worth is not in how productive you are!

    Sometimes I wonder how so many of us become Human-DOINGS & forget that we are human beings. It's pretty common with those of us who have weight issues. It fills some need to excel at everything to make up for our "failure" with weight control. In any case, your day DOES sound very productive. Great job! emoticon

    I know the feeling!! When we're kids we just want to hurry up and be grown ups and now that we see how little time there is to do the things we thought would be fun as a grown up...wouldn't it be fun to have time like we did as a kid again?? LOL

    Well you still got more done than I did today! Don't forget to give yourself credit when you have it coming! But who has time for THAT!?
