I sometimes think that

the reason I never get it all done
is because I set out to achieve too much

You know, I had this thought yesterday. I have so many things I want to accomplish before I leave on my trip to visit my mother. Most of these things I want to do involve making or baking so I can bring goodies to Mom, so, I have to get them done. There is no compromise. Last night, my feet were like lead weights, my mind a blur, and I'm still trying to get more done. Too much on my plate, just as you suggest.
I did get some sleep, (I was exhausted), and started right in this morning. I've got a pot of spaghetti sauce on the stove, bread dough rising, the second to the last cookies frosted and awaiting a box to carry them in and I'm all set up for the last of the cookies. Oh, and I have a sofa to move, and and. Too much on my plate!


Peace out, will ya?

Yeah, I think That the reason I broke my foot , was so that i could take baby steps and focus on smaller things, and stop pushing myself so much.
When the hammer falls, it's usually because i haven't listened. ( or wanted to.)

Concentrate on the details (like spelling ['i before e' in words like achieve]) and suddenly you find the big picture is finished.

I sometimes think that the reason I never get it all done is because I don't seem to have started!
