"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."
-Stay online during weeknights too long, causing me to stay up too late! -Taking work home from work...it gets done when it gets done. -Wishing for more of anything--I have what I have when it comes to money, time, and energy...and it's enough. I just have to budget it right to make everything balance.

SAVE A LIFE, SIMPLY DRIVE!!! Distracted Driving Crash Victim, May 27 2014
On my to-don't list is not to volunteer for anything. This is really hard for me to do since I love participating in music anywhere with anyone at anytime, (church, schools, plays, local singing groups or bands, musicals at the theatres). I also love to work with kids ( especially at-risk kids) in after school study clubs and/or in the Girl Scouting program.
However, after doing it all for 35 years, my husband put his foot down and told me not to do any of that until our home is tidy, organized, and cleaned. Since I hate cleaning, and want things organized, I agreed and so now am getting a lot of chores done at home, many of which I would rather not be doing! It is a struggle, but I am making progress.
1 - Waste time on the computer - surfing the net, playing games etc. It's my biggest time vampire. 2 - Looking at things as binary (good/bad). I need to appreciate the small victories to put less pressure on myself.
