Where Is My Time?

I mean I honestly seem to have lost all my time.  Everyday I run full tilt from sun up to sun down (and then some) and somehow there is this ever growing list of things I have not gotten done.   The past three days alone I have not managed to:
  • Workout
  • Fix the books that need taping back together
  • Do Chris' absentee ballot paperwork
  • Slap a coat of polish on my nails and toenails
  • Pluck my eyebrows
  • Make more Oil Cleansing Mix
  • Blog
  • Write thank-you notes
  • Sew a new tote bag
  • Work on my knitting
  • Clean the fridge
  • Get my car serviced
Now why are these things undone?  I have no idea actually.  It sure feels like I am doing things non-stop yet somehow, stuff just is not getting done.  On the upside the girls and I are really enjoying our summer, yet I am left feeling like every time we go out and have fun and live life, we fall a bit behind on the pesky details that keep life going.  Like getting laundry folded.   I suppose this is the slow but steady fall out of Chris never being home. Over time the little things that I just can't work into the daily schedule add up to a crazy annoying list that hangs, forever, over my head.

This is what happens when one person has to handle every. single. detail. of the lives of four people.  Oh, and then there is this, so it probably isn't really going to be worth it after all.  Looks like I am pulling an all-nighter...now, where is the tape?

Man, I feel like I miss all this stuff and I don't have the "do it all yourself" thing that you've got going on. I think you're a rockstar, even if the laundry doesn't get folded (who needs folded laundry anyway? You're just gonna wear it again! ;-p)

@Ginger Amen! on the laundry. I am thinking of just giving everyone two baskets. One for clean, one for dirty. Think of all the storage that would free up in the dressers and closets!
