Dear Life.


Dear Life:

I am writing to you in regards to the fact that even though there are supposedly 24 hours in each day, you seem to only give me .25 available for use, after you have used up the other 23.75 hours by making me work, clean, sleep, cook, etc. And frankly, I feel robbed. Writing this letter has used up .05 of those hours, which leaves me with a mere .2 hours (aka 12 minutes) out of the entire 24 hour period in which I need to fit in the other frivolous-yet-necessary-activities-to-help-me-maintain-my-sanity.
If there is any way to increase that number, please do so now.

Sincerely,


A.

ugh, seriously! TELL ME ABOUT IT!! i'm not yelling that statement, i'm just stressing the fact that it's so true.

I wish I didn't have to sleep so i could have more time in the day.

We feel so loved to know that you would spend some of your precious time with us, the blogging world!

Hope you find more time... :)

Wow! I don't think I would have been able to calculate my need for spare time. Is there even such a thing? I love the "Dear Life"-nice Ash- Good luck!

Oh...time is so elusive! It's frustrating to have it eaten away by all the things you don't want to do.

One book I've found that's really helped me in this area is "The Power of Less". (http://www.thepowerofless.com). I got it at the library and it's a quick, but powerful read.

Good luck! (Cute post, too, as usual. Love your style).

I see that life hasn't responded favorably yet.... if it does, pass the word along because I have a few requests myself.

Well, I say...the same thing! I've decided to take more time for myself regardless though. :)

This is just Jeanette (can't figure out how to do just me-what'er) I was just thinking about you and here you are. You make me laugh! I love your letter to Life-makes me want to put pen to paper myself. Anyhow, I just miss you and love looking at your blog. Keep it up and give Kennedy a big hug for me okay?

So, so very true. If I could rid myself of one necessary daily event, it would be using the bathroom. Seriously, such a waste of time. I try to be quick about it, but still. And why is it that guys seem to enjoy it so much, and spend a great deal of time in there doing their business?

My feelings exactly. I feel like I never get to just sit around a read or hang out anymore. My to do list is too long and mean while my life is slipping away! Thanks for making me smile!
