I know this is a rhetorical question...but...have you ever had a week where you couldn't get anything done because of life happening? I have had a week like that. My collegiate daughter was home for a couple of days while she was on her spring break. A few days later my husband’s nephew and his family were here for a couple of days. Between all the shopping with my daughter and all the cleaning for the nephew's arrival, I haven't painted for my Etsy shop or blogged in over a week. Well, I did manage to finish a couple of orders and a swap item for a message board I visit daily. I don't know where my time goes. I don't feel that I fritter it away but lately I'm not as productive as I normally am. I am involved in activities outside the home throughout the week but I don't consider that "frittering". I attend one prayer meeting at our church each week and a Bible study. Those do take up most of my Tuesday. I attend a personal Bible study with a friend on Thursday. We usually go to lunch so you know we are in no hurry to finish. One Saturday a month I volunteer time with Angel Food Ministry, another Saturday I attend the women's meeting at my church (I haven't been as faithful to that as I should but I'm trying to do better). Of course there are daily and weekly chores that need to be done around the house as well as errands that need to be taken care of. I'm up at 7AM and in bed anywhere from 11:30 til midnight. Honestly, there is still more than enough time to finish the things I want to get done...done! I would love to paint 2 items a day for my Etsy shop but it never happens, well, it did one time but I haven't managed to do it again. I really need to take a look at my time and see where it is going. Maybe I should have entitled this "Time". When you want it to speed up, it goes as slow as molasses; when you want it to slow down, it jumps to warp. The faster you try to get something done, the slower it happens. You try to save a minute and you end up paying double for it. I actually have a post saved talking about time...maybe one day I will find the time to finish it. The clock is ticking; I'd better get back to painting. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog; it means a lot to me! Enjoy your day and may time be perfect for you today.
