Fitting it all in.

Do you ever have that trouble just fitting everything in?

I can't seem to make time to do it all. And I am a young, married girl with no real responsibilities! I don't understand how mom's and uber busy people can do it all.

Here's my point. We have 24 hours in a day. 8 of which we are sleeping (well I need 8 hours, it could be less for others). 8 hours we are working (in my case 9 hours, I work 8-5, but do get an hour lunch, which I go home or run a few errands). And then we have another 8 hours to do everything else. For me, one hour goes to getting up and getting ready in the morning. 1 to 2 hours goes to running in the evening. Then you gotta take in time to make dinner and eat. And usually I have to do some kind of personal work. And then all of the sudden it's 11 o'clock and time to go to bed.

I have an on-going "to-do" list and try to check as much stuff off as possible. Like this week, since G has been gone, I have tried to get as much off the list as possible, and pretty much succeeded, but there were a few things left that had to be left for another day. I would just love for there to be a day when there wasn't one thing on my to-do list. I mean, don't get me wrong, there are days when I completely avoid the to-do list. But seriously, just one day when there is NOTHING. I guess that never truely happens.

I guess part of it, is that I feel bad for leaving my dog by himself for the majority of the day. Even when I am at home, I still feel like he needs more attention, or something. He is a VERY spoiled dog, but still. I worry about when G and I decide to have kids.. am I going to have time?! Or will I feel like I have spent enough time with them? I am worried. I want to be around. I don't want to be busy...

but then again, I like be productive. So it's kind of a double edged sword.

Do you ever feel like this?


  1. Um, yes. I think it means you really love your kids/family/pets/friends and want the very best for them...

    And, every year I say we're going to stay home more, not be gone on the weekends so much, etc...and, I'm probably going to say it again in 2011. You will find the right mix for your future family - don't worry about it (that's just more time you could be spending doing something you really want to). : )
