 It's my favorite time of year, but I've yet the opportunity to sit outside, drink a cup of coffee and take in all the beauty. I haven't even had time to go home and see my mom and brother and really get to take a break from my fast lane life. I love to read, but I think in the last month, I've only completed one book and it was short. I have some organizing that has been a goal of mine for months now that is still unorganized. I just can't seem to get things done.

What is it exactly that I've been doing to occupy my time so? A whole lot of absolute nothing. It's like I lose hours doing that very well. When time elaspes and I look at the clock, I am bewildered. I just can not believe I spent three hours just sitting. I wasn't deep in meditation or thinking any kind of grand thoughts. I just was sort of out of it. I most often find myself like that when I get home from work. I make it in the house around 5:15. The next thing I know it's 7 or 8! I must admit in that time of being lost, I manage to pop out a meal, straighten up a little or some over simple task, but I used to get so much more important to me stuff done. Now there's no other way to put it, I'm just lost! I guess I describe the being lost feeling as simply not aware of things. It's like I'm in an area of thoughtlessness (is that a word?). I know routines will sometimes get a person out of sync, but it is not like that. It's hard to explain.

I just look forward to getting out of this area. I have started writing down a list of daily goals that I want to accoumplish to help me do that. I also have ended my relationship with Directv as I've found tv to suck up time too.We'll see how it goes for a couple of weeks and if I will be able to relinquish my dvr. We'll see!!!


  1. I find that it is so easy to let time get away from us. My time-suck is reading blogs! The computer is what I fuss with day by day. I have succeeded in turning off the TV, but now I watch my favorite shows on the computer. What is it that you want to do that is not getting done? When is the best time to get it done? Evenings or weekends? You can use your DVR to compile all your TV watching into one block of time. Maybe that will help a little. I'm glad to hear that you're well.

  2. Webster, I laugh at myself because the things that I want to get done are only things I have created in my mind that need to get done. I would like to organize, get some things done paperwork wise, but overall everything that "has" to get done gets done. Tv is not a huge,huge issue but it is an issue. I do have a DVR and record some stuff, but I never watch it and my husband ends up asking if he can just delete it. I think what I'm describing is just simply being idle when I can be doing something a lot more productive.

    1. I'm glad you're doing well also and thanks!!!
