Where does the time go?

If there is anyone out there who knows how to get it all done with the hours we are given, you be sure to let me know, okay? I often feel as if I am backpedaling. Do you remember when you were a kid and you would just pedal backward on your 10-speed bike while coasting? I miss that feeling. I spend so much time trying to keep up with things like my social networks, the blogs I write, the assignments I am seeking, not to mention my family’s needs and the little things that pop up in a life such as birthdays and illnesses.

I need a double so that she can do all of the yucky, admin-type stuff while I do the surfing, reading and playing with the kids. She could do all of the trolling for story ideas, keep on top of the social media and blogging, and maybe clean a toilet or do some dishes while she’s at it.

How do you get everything done? What are the things you let go of?

In the meantime, here are a few links of note. Enjoy!

I never get everything done either, not if I want to pursue my writing seriously :) So I tend to let go of the house (dishes, laundry, cleaning, putting toys away). They get done, just not every day. The funny thing is, I am a more productive writer and feel better about myself when our house is very clean and everything's put away. Maybe some day I'll cave in and hire a cleaning service to come every so often!

Ditto to all you said. I just cleaned the house for a weekend of birthday parties for my son. It felt so nice to have "air" rather than space filled with junk. Now, if they can put it away for a party, can't they just...uh, I don't know...put it away all the time? :)
