Time In A Bottle

Wouldn't that be nice? I feel like I'm a hampster, spinning on a wheel. The more I spin, the less I get done and the faster time seems to be rushing past me at full speed.

Where is all my time going? I work, yes, but I have the evenings and weekends to do other things. There are SO many things I'd like to do - begin scrapbooking, finally get around to making our wedding albums (you know, 3 years later), learn how to sew (again) so I can make curtains, pillows, other decorative accessories for my house, plant flowers in my yard, start a vegetable garden, go hiking, explore Idaho and find some redeeming quailites (outside of family) for being here, go camping, write more letters, invite the girls over for a tea party.

I want to learn and do new, fun and exciting things. I just feel like I don't have any time. I can't believe it's already June. Nearing the end of the 2nd week of June. It's almost time for my yearly review at my job.

That's another thing that's just bogging my time. My job. We've done some restructering at my work and basically now all the work is on my desk and the other girl here is...well, I don't know what she's doing. She appears to be working, but I'm not quite sure on WHAT. So I feel stressed out every time I get to work and all day long, looking at the piles of paper on my desk that I just don't seem to have time to get to.

This has been a very negative post. :-( I just wish I could find some of the time in a bottle. I could use a little extra, here.


  1. My mom would say "There are things you have to make time for."

    I feel like time is just escaping me lately. So, I'm right there with you.

  2. Life kinda comes at you that way. You have to take care of the things that you don't want to do. Eventually you'll have time for the fun stuff. You just have to seize the moment when it presents itself.
