It's that time of year again

....Time when I start trying to get über-organized, decluttered and I make lists and lists of to-dos, will-dos, wanna-dos and someday-dos. The time when nothing satisfies me, 24 hours is NEVER enough, 7 days just won't cut it and I don't have enough hairs to pull out. Where I have a list soooo long of things I want to do, I get over-motivated and I burn out. (while I fry everyone near me as well) Or I get so overwhelmed I am forced into inactivity.


Maybe it's actually TIME to rethink things.

I know, there's just something about getting a fresh start... a new year! I guess I just know that it's going to be a great year so I'm going to rest in that fact and enjoy it!
Happy New Year!

I'm feeling the same way. I need to step back and rethink things. I know I let distractions get in my way far too often. Many times they are fun (facebook, blogging, writing, reading, eating.) Other times they are not fun (Doctor visit(s), sickness, cranky baby, Cranky three year old, errands, emergencies and emergency errands.)

I was doing Math with G-man today and I had written a note in the book when Mini-Me was in the same grade. I had done it 2 months earlier then..with her than I did with G. That really compounded my "way behind" feeling. By golly, though, I've heard Chuck Pierce say that 2008 is the year to HIT THE MARK!! I'm going to hit the mark -- but I still think I need lessons. When will you start classes??

To boot -- I've lost a complete section in my book and I've got to rewrite the darn thing. Grrr..

I digress...
2008 is going to be awesome!!

Maybe if you put your 24 hours and 2 days a week together with mine, we'll get a lot accomplished! LOL!!!!!

I know the feeling. The holidays compounded with the start of a new year - it's enough to make anyone a little bit crazy.

Happy New Year!
