January 2012

So, here I am again. Thinking I failed at blogging again. Every year I start out so good, then life gets crazy and there goes my blog. I really want to be better at this since I don't have time to scrapbook any more, which has made me super sad, and I don't keep a personal journal.
Today, I am home alone on a Sunday evening since I am waiting for the 7pm, Eight is great fireside. I am the 1st counselor in the primary, so I get to go and talk to the girls turning 8 and telling them about Activity Days, next year JJ will be 8, so I will be going again. I am not a fan of Sunday meetings. I don't know why, they are uplifting and spiritual things to do on Sunday, but when in competition with family dinners, they are evil :0) I also did like with the church came out and said to limit Sunday meetings, so I was in full support of that.
I miss my family, but I am actually looking at the extra hours I am enjoying tonight by not having to travel an hour each direction and thinking of all the possibilities I can accomplish tonight. I have many great ideas on my "Wish List" of TO DOs, my husband asked if I was going to take a nap. That sounds so divine and I rest about 5 minutes because I have too much I want to do. First thing is to make cookies for the fireside since I thought I would avoid spending money, so now I am done and look at the time, ....yes, you guessed it. It's all gone. Why is there not enough time in the day (and energy) to get things done anymore? Does the clock tick faster than the olden days? did church get longer? Why can't I go to town and check more than 2 things off my list or errands? I am still working on Christmas returns/exchanges. AHhh!
It's crazy how busy life is these days, or maybe it's just me and I need someone to show me the way to fit it all in (anyone?)
I just hope to some day get over the day to day things so I can get around to enjoying life and maybe do some fun things, so I can look back and see the successes and good things in life. Someday....isn't that the most used word?
