Let's face it - there just aren't enough hours in the day. I personally could use at least 28 hours; but I also feel pretty sure even that wouldn't be enough. There is just not enough time for all the things I need to do, and the things I want to do.
Right now is a prime example. I need to straighten up the room I am sitting in right now and make the guest bed up for an overnight visit from my mother. Instead I am sitting here blogging about how I should be doing that rather than actually doing it. Need vs Want. I need to clean. I want to write.
I need to clean the bathrooms. I want to read.
I need to do laundry. I want to paint my toenails.
I need to vacuum. I want to google new recipes and crochet patterns.
I need to crochet. OK.. that doesn't really fit because I kind of want to do that also.
It really doesn't seem fair that I should have to chose. If I just had a few more hours in the day, I think I could get everything completed that I need to do and still have time for the want to's. I could have clean dishes and an afternoon nap. Imagine it. Just... imagine...
But until the time when The Powers That Be decide to extend the day by several hours; giving all of us a little more time - all I can do is get as much finished on the To Do list as possible and hope I have a little time for the Want To Do list left over at the end of the day.
