I have been thinking about missed opportunities as of late. Each day goes by so swiftly that before I know it the week is over and then another month has escaped me and I ask myself "Where did this month go?" I began to take note of what I had been doing with my time only to find out that I did very little with my time to consider it well used.
There are so many things left that I want to do and I find myself falling way short on accomplishing them. I am guessing you know what I do with some of my time? BLOGGING...I spend too much time reading blogs. Some days I spend a couple of hours reading them and drinking my morning coffee. My writing has been slow to come and I don't feel like I have much to say right now. My writing comes and goes. Some times my thoughts are too personal to even write them.
During this time of reflection, I find that while I enjoy my blog friends greatly, a lot of things go undone and I spend a lot of time playing catch up. I work part time as a floral designer and it goes with out saying that this week is a very busy time for me. I love working as much as I enjoy blogging. So that is the second most time consuming thing I do. What about the rest of the day you might ask? You know it takes a lot of time to swallow medicine and vitamins. I do that twice a day. I have tea in the afternoon around three. Ironing takes up some time too.
I spend a lot of time taking care of my pets. In and out they go ten times a day. I have to go and find them if they don't come back. This takes time away, but I love my pets so I don't consider it a bad thing. I spend a lot of time driving to the next town for groceries. It took three hours the last time I went. That is something I could do with a lot less. I drive every two weeks for an hour to my acupuncturist. This in one thing that I can not do with out. Dr. Randy helps manage my pain from RA. Wham...there goes another day.
You know if I had stayed on that diet I keep starting, I would have lost a lot of weight by now.Some days I exercise, but not for as long as I should. I seem to be a little ADD. Life distracts me in a good way. I can't stand the way I keep blowing it off by my so called busy life. Ha! Why is it that I am a lot less productive in the winter months? I spend very little time on the phone, but I do spend time scrap booking and on photography. I spend a lot of time washing clothes. Why? I don't know how two people can have so much laundry, but we do.
I spend two hours a week in church and sunday school. Yes, I did finally find a church to attend. I spend two hours a month getting my hair done. I watch some TV at night like Lost and NCIS. I change the litter box that doesn't take too long. I feed the cats food and water seems like everyday because the dog eats their food. I do a little house work. And yet some how nothing ever really gets done or when it is done, it doesn't stay done for very long.
I guess I ponder things a lot and wonder about how things work. Maybe, I just think too much. When I don't feel good I spend time in my Hubs chair with the heating pad. When my sister is here we do things together. I have not given a very good accouting of my time.
Maybe I move slower than I use to move. Maybe, I am not as motivated as I once was. I want to start volunteering at place in town that feeds the hungry folks and senior citizens. I am going to have to put it in higher gear if I am going to get anything done. Why do I get so much more done in the Spring and Summer? Hmmmm...I'll think about this some more and will have to get back to you on it later. OK, I have rambled on enough. Ya'll take care now.
