Tooooosday

MoonFaeSharon.jpg

Too many times I have said "go to bed early" and didn't.  Too many times I say "in a minute" or "not now".  I have too many books that I have not started reading.  Too much time passes between visits with family or friends.  There is just too much else that needs to be done.  I have too little money.  I have too much junk.  Tom says I have too many shoes (not!).  Sometimes I am just too crazy.  I am too busy. 

Other times I just too lazy!  

Why are we stressing our selves out everyday that we are too busy to stop and smell the roses?  There are only so many minutes in a day....one third is suppozed to be spent sleeping/relaxing; one third at work.  What happens to the other 8 hours???  Hmmmm, I'm on the road for an hour a day to and from work;  one hour in the am getting me & kid up and out the door; one hour for dinner;  twice a week its 3 hours total for dance;  (that's already 6 hours in one day accounted for on 2 days).  That only leaves 2 hours for recreation, bath, homework, etc.  Then there are the miscellaneous things that come into play, balance checkbook, grocery shop, go through the mail, laundry.........

It is true when we say "there's just too much to do" to have any fun anymore.  But we're gonna change that now aren't we ????

Summer is coming.....we have more daylight    more time to get outside and put something on the barbee.  Tara and I have already begun to play badmitton some afternoons.  We went fishing this past weekend.  I spent some time with my nephew and my Mom on Monday as well as my Nanny. 

I love Spring and Summer!  (I get the winter doledrums and I guess I just get stoic all set up in the house like that....it's just too dark and cold.)  I want a trampoline.  Tom promised Tara a pool once she learned to swim (still waiting for the pool).

  We've already blocked some time for the beach house the weekend that school is out (June 9-13).  I want to spend more "family" time with my group.....gotta have some fun!  I also need some "ME" time and time with my gal friends.  We should initiate a standing date....like every 2nd Friday we get together or 3rd Saturday...I don't care --just call me!!!!

Never such a thing as too many shoes...lol.  We all need to slow down..but that is easy to say, not easy to do.  Good luck in having some down time...good for the soul.  Hugs,

Have fun when you go to your beach house weekend and you are right, everyone needs a little time to themselves and their friends as well.  Take care and have a great Hump Day.

Your vacation to a beach house must be exciting to look forward to.    I am tired and I woke up at 2 am an thought it was 6 am and had an intense dream I can still remember.   I only slept 2 hours the night before and then an hour or so in the afternoon.    I strained my back several days ago so I think I am over that but the weather is effecting me with the cooler weather at night.   I think I will try to go back to sleep.   Hope you have a good day today.    mark

I love spring and summer also...mostly summer since I'm up north.   Gal time is the best.  Every girl needs some time off with the girl buddies.  HUGS  Chris

So very true.  I have the same thoughts.  Always wanting more time in the day.  Sometimes I just let things go just so I can go out and enjoy a day with the family.
