Doing it All

I can't do everything. I know that. I've always known it, I guess. But I'm getting better at realizing it.

However, how do I manage to waste so much time at work? Why am I not getting work done when I'm in my office? It's 10:30 a.m. and I've accomplished nothing in the nearly 2 hours I've been here! In order to be better able to get done at home what needs to be done on Friday and Saturday, today I must accomplish the following: a few items for tonight's board meeting, a sermon for Sunday, Sunday School prep (which is started). That's not much, but it's a lot. I have a seed of an idea for my sermon and that's all for that so far.

I have a meeting to go to at 3, home quick for supper, and back for meeting at 5:30. Must have this done by 3. So now it's to work!

Except--wow, this was boring! No one even commented on my last post which was funny--why am I even bothering?

I'm reading! I loved the last post. It's just that whole... how do I extend the conversation and not just say, "well, my 3-year-old..." I love their creativity.

But I so know what you mean about time in the office (home office for me) frittering away without stuff actually being accomplished. I'll look up and it's 11:30 and I've got nothing!

(And I appreciate your encouragement at my place.)

I have a similar problem with getting work done while I'm at work. I have no idea where the time goes some days...
