Lately I feel like there is too much to do and not enough time to do it all.
I put some books on hold at the library and I try to manage it so that they all don’t come in at once. I have 7 books to read in 3 weeks. :( Not going to happen.
I’m a tad behind in my blog reading.
My inbox currently sits at 10,858 unread new messages.
Yeah it’s a little insane.
Since I have been driving downtown I have lost at least 2 hours of my day to just being in the car.
My girls are trying to test me. They have this delusional idea that since they don’t have anywhere they can stay up all night. Every night this week has been a fight to get them into bed at a decent hour. I am way too old for this. Next week when summer school starts we will be back to “normal”.
Today Princess was supposed to go to school to get her report card. Do you want to take a guess as to who is still at home? She missed the time she was to go. She can still go get it but I am not impressed. Tonight she is going to her Dad’s to help take care of her little sister. Diva has a dentist appointment or she would be going too. Today Diva gets her braces off. WHOO HOOO!!! Soon I might get to keep some more of my hard-earned dollars.
I have not exercised in way too long. I am still watching what I eat and losing a little. The little that I have lost made My Fitness Pal re-evaluate my goals and took away 70 calories per day. I’m down to 1260 calories a day. I don’t see me maintaining that. I like to eat. So more active I will have to become.
I need to start planning my days better.
Now to find the time to do that.
Man it’s been too long since I have been here. Sorry.
I am suffering from there really isn’t enough time to do everything you want to.
Work has been crazy busy and when the day is over I am finding it hard to sit in front of my computer for any long periods of time. I am so very behind on my blog reading.
I’ve been trying to get back into reading. I recently finished The Glass Castle and Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. Both were fantastic. Right now I am reading The End of Your Life Book Club. It too is good, but … it lists other great books to read. Where do people find the time?
I am still focused on my health, trying to go to bed at a reasonable hour, eat well and all that other good stuff. Bed bedtime is not going as well as it could. At 10 pm I feel like I should stay up later I’m a grown up. And I do, usually end up going to bed closer to midnight, then the next morning I am crying to get out of bed.
I am trying to limit the amount of TV I watch but that seems to be easier said than done. It really is a time suck. Once it’s on, it stays on. Sometimes just as background noise.
I bought myself some wool last week. I saw this on Pinterest and fell in love.
Sad part is after buying the wool I realized I could have just bought the already made scarves. And it would
most likely be cheaper than buying just the wool. But there’s something to be said for doing it yourself, right? I am going to attempt the black one first.
Gas is going up by 4 cents tonight. 4 people have sent me text messages to let me know.
I had a 1/4 tank of gas when I left work and thought I should put some gas in my car before it gets too low. The line ups were insane at the 2 gas stations I passed so I gave up.
As much as I would say I like to save money, I like to save time even more.
My tank holds 55 litres when bone dry (which is never). So the most I would be saving is $2.20. Hardly seems like it’s worth sitting at the gas station for 10+ minutes.
I used to buy gas at Costco. When their gas station first opened it was on average 6.6 cents cheaper than most gas stations. Over time the difference between Costco and the other gas stations dropped to 4.4 cents per litre and the line ups grew.
I like saving money. I know that over time $2 here and $2 there add up. BUT man to sit in a line idling for 20+ minutes, while burning gas, to buy cheaper gas seems counter intuitive to me.
I don’t drive enough to justify spending the time lining up to buy gas. Lately I have been going almost 3 weeks between fill ups.
What do you do, spend the money or spend the time?
