I am never quite sure where my time goes. No matter how much time I seem to have, I always have unfinished tasks that seem to loom over me with no end in sight. I do 12 things, there are 23 more on my list. I can see from my perpetual list that things are getting done but the list just keeps getting longer. Then I feel guilty if I stop to read or watch TV or a movie because there are so many things I could be doing that would erase more things off my list. Don't get me wrong, I still read or watch but I hate feeling like the time was wasted and I could have been doing something productive. I am working to go through all of the "stuff" I have accumulated but I get so distracted. I mean, I have pretty phenomenal taste (laugh here) and I have collected some pretty awesome stuff over the years. On the flip side of that, I am a paper horder. I collect mounds of paper that I think will come in handy one day...recipes, craft ideas, pictures of cards I like and would like to copy, articles I want to read...you name it and I probably have one or two! I also have several boxes of magazines that I think I am going to sit down and read. Of course, those also contain recipes I want to try, craft ideas that look like fun, decorating and home improvement ideas that might make my house look fabulous! Oh, and let's not forget that magazines can also be used for altered art when you have taken all of the important pages you want to keep out of them. LOL....and then you have the loose pages that you have to find a home for. In the end, you are just trapped in a perpetual circle of death by paper. Okay, that was dramatic. In the end, I find that even after I purge, I have a ton of paper that I don't really know what to do with...If I put it in that file, am I REALLY going to use it or have I just hidden the paper from eyesight?
On an unrelated note, I found this plate at a thrift store and it reminds me often of my time dilemma. Don't you love it???
