I get this comment from people lots, “How do you do it? How do you have time for all that you do?” Now, I am not bragging, nor am I trying to sound like I have figured things out. The truth of the matter is that I have a really hard time being idle, smelling the flowers, soaking life in. Unfortunately, when I am 90 I am sure that I will wish I would have slowed down for a minute. Now, I am writing this as a personal acknowledgement that I need to slow down and enjoy life a little. For me, life without one of my lists of things to do is fruitless. I am driven by multitasking. I guess what would be most helpful would be to change my list of things to do and write some uncharacteristic things on there. For example: leave the kitchen messy for one whole day and instead sit and play dollies with the girls, or, don’t do the laundry till your exercising is done (I am sure I would exercise more efficiently if I couldn’t do my laundry), or, now this is a big one, blog when the kids go to bed-not while their awake and you are ignoring them. Now, normally I do blog at night but I have been on a binge of blogging right now and I think my kids are getting fed up with it. Somethings are hardwired into you. Just ask my 80 year old grandma who is e-mailing me her journal entries which I can see, plain as day, being me when I am 80. Love ya grandma! But we both need to chill! Maybe you and me can grab a chick flick when I am in town next!
