Where Does The Time Go?

“For disappearing acts, it’s hard to beat what happens to the eight hours supposedly left after eight of sleep and eight of work.”  ~Doug Larson

My big trip to Europe is quickly approaching.  It’s only three weeks away!  In my mind I know what I need to pack, but I have to transfer this over to paper, that way when it does come time to pack I’m not scrambling to remember.  I can’t believe how quickly it’s coming.  It feels as if just yesterday I was boarding the plane to Florida.

And then I realised that it’s already two weeks since I’ve been home.  That was a real shocker to me. Where did THAT time go?

Why is it that when you are not working, whether it be that you’re on vacation, have some time off etc, that you’re more busy than when you’re at work?  I still wake up at the same time every morning.  It’s not like I don’t want to sleep in, because I certainly do because I LOVE to sleep, and when I go to bed, I’m asleep before my head hits the pillow.  I’m exhausted all the time.  But seriously, why is it that way?

I often wonder how did I do it when I was working? Get all this done, plus commute to and from work, and put in a full day?  I guess you just become busy with different things that normally you wouldn’t be busy with.  Take yesterday for example: Woke up, blogged, took care of business stuff, I dropped off my daughter at school, ran to the store to get something, then met up with a dear friend to discuss some business stuff, then off to my old employer to submit my last expense bill, go to another store to return stuff, pick up my daughter, rush her to her dance rehearsal, rush home and make dinner, and then meet up with the real estate agent and my ex, and then take care of other business stuff. My day started at 6am and ended at 11:30pm.  No wonder I was tired!!

Every day isn’t exactly like that, but it’s pretty damn close.  So, how do I make it easier?  What needs to change?  DO I need to look into better time management options, or maybe just clone myself?  I wish there were things I could just decide not do, but these are all necessities, but it’s not possible.  Especially now that I’m a single mom.

Oh wow, look at the time.  Enough rambling, I must go!  There are tonnes of things to be done today! hahahaha.

Have a great day everyone!

  1. I think time is like a mirror, it reflects a bit of how things are seen, but really it is just an image of the true reality. Hence why it can appear to go forever or disappear without a trace. The only consistent reality is love, and you have plenty of that, Smartie! 🙂

    As Henry Van Dyke said
    “Time is too slow for those who wait,
    too swift for those who fear,
    too long for those who grieve,
    too short for those who rejoice,
    but for those who love,
    time is eternity. “
