Do you ever wonder why our days are not just a tad bit longer? Why we can’t have just a little more time each day to do all the things we wish to do? Do you sit at work and daydream about what you wish you could be doing? I do. I want to be satisfied with the hours God gives me each day but I also would like to make sure I live my hours’ worth while. Today for instance I have a list swirling in my head.
Buy a card for a stranger with cancer
Spend some quality time in the word, having conversations with God
Pay my GAP bill
Walk 10,000 steps
Use my Lowes gift card to buy vegetables for my garden
Get a new pair of jeans because like every lovely curvy woman my inner thigh is so thin you can see my skin!!
Read F-451 at least five pages…at least
Buy sidewalk chalk (I have an idea for my walking path)
Skim the pages of my new subscriptions that have arrived this week, CLICK!!
Cook a delicious dinner for my family
Do the dishes (kids can help)
Remodel my bedroom (hee hee just kidding…no not really)
Buy canvas because my amazing sister Sarah gave me paints and paint brushes to play with because she believes in me.
Vacuum up all the hair that Max and the kitties have left all over the hardwood floor
Maybe dust a little
Hug the kids
Take a picture with all three my kids if I can ever find them all in one spot at one time
Sit next to motorcycle man as we watch Survivor tonight because come to think of it, I wasn’t home for it last night!
Drink some Matcha Tea
Make my bed
Oh and have a glass of wine
Hope that the holly hocks have bloomed so I can take a picture
Transfer the garden tour pictures to mama bear’s flash drive
Return her rock salt too.
Buy the stuff to make homemade toothpaste
Believe me when I say, this is NOT ALL. There is more but I need to stop. And all of this is in-between and intermixed with picking up children, running to the store for a gallon of milk and any unknowns that pop up when you have children.
And often I will leave work feeling completely overwhelmed at the list I have created in my head. And instead will go home and do nearly nothing at all. This is a similar daily scenario. There are days I have the super ability to do nearly all of it and then there are the days I just can’t seem to put one foot in front of the other. The beauty of all of this is, I know I’m not alone. I know I’m in very good company in fact. I think slowing down may be a good idea. But then again I’m not sure it’s possible for my mind to not have so many ideas at once.
