Where does all the time go and how can we get more???

I love to blog!!! I love that I have a place to put my thoughts, feelings, pictures and fun things that happen to me and my family. I am a stalker of blogs I have to admit. I go on other blogs who have a link from either friends blogs or blogs I found in other places. I look and get ideas, I use their ideas, I copy some of their blogs to use on my blog with a reference back to them that I am using their stuff, I don't claim it as my own. They are helpful and very informative. You can access them from my blog if you want to take a look at some.

What I don't get is where do they find the time!!!!! I mean you need time to sit here and type up a blog, information to put on a blog and then if you add a picture you need to take the pictures and down load them into your blog and then arrange them how you may want them and explain each picture or they would make no sense.

The blogs I have been visiting lately is the DIY type. You know the ones where they redo some thing they bought at a yard sale or found at a thrift shop, or sometimes on the streets at curb side. They bring them home and redo them to their taste and how they envisioned the piece would look. I LOVE TO DO THIS!!! BUT........I don't have time. I print the instructions on how to do things and have all good intentions of getting to it, but I just don't have the time.

So where do THEY find the time?????? How are they able to not only find the exact piece they want ( which I would love to know how because believe me I have been in Thrift stores and the picking is slim), get it home, strip (which takes a long time and a lot of muscles work), sand the piece, stain or paint it, distress it, and put a finish on it. This all has time in between each step to dry so you can go onto the next step. I mean where is the TIME!!!!

I love to finished a piece and if I bought something and brought it home I better have the time to get it done. I mean I don't want to have things laying around and not get to them. That would be unproductive and a waste of money.

I have so many ideas I would like to do but old Father Time is short in the coming. I mean why don't we have more time???? What do we do with all the time that is in a day???? How can we use time more to our use????? To think about this you need time and no distractions to get a plan together. I'm a good get a plan togetherer (is that a word??)...I love to make list and check off things as I get them done...but I also love to relax and let the chips fall where they will too.

I just I need to sit and think and make a plan of all the time it would take to write something interesting on my blog and hope that I get feed back from people, and go shopping for that really cool thing to redo, and then blog my way to how I got it done. I am not bashing anyone I am jealous of the time they have to do something I would love to do.

So with all that is said let me pose this question. How do you have time to enjoy the things you like to do???? What do you have let go of to have time to enjoy them? What is important to you????

Can't wait to see what others have come up with!!!!

I'd leave a comment, but I don't have time.

:) I totally know where you are coming from. Every now and then I realize that all the amazing things done/created/invented, problems solved, peace found... was done in a bunch of 24 hour days. It is like the great equalizer. But.... I don't know how people do it. (I also like to remind myself that a blog is a lot like a Christmas letter... most people only show what they want you to see. Dishes all over, dirty floors, piles of laundry... husbands whining over lousy meals and crap that is piling up waiting to become some amazing thing... budgets that get blown at Good Will and Home Depot.

:) See, I'm so good at rationalizing why I don't do it all. :)

I loved visiting with you the other day. THAT is how I'd choose to spend my time-- with amazing women like you. :)
