Lifelines and Deadlines

"Rock Needs Paper" :
The rock I found on my walk.
It is most delightfully flat on both sides, and screaming for mixed media perfection.

Ever feel like there just isn't enough time and, "give a shit" in you to get it all done? That's where I am today. I have some pressing deadlines and boy are they ever pressing on my lifeline. I'm finding it difficult to schedule the wants between the rampant bellowing of the needs, both my own and that of others.

It isn't even the anxiety of all of the impending festivities. Nope, it's not that at all. It's just well...I suppose I'm being juvenile, but I plain old don't feel like doing anything that requires any actual doing. I'd like nothing more than to sit on my ass and dream a little dream about sitting on my ass and dreaming. Not exactly a novel concept I suppose, but it's feeling pretty damn novel in my busy life right about now.

Every time I glance over at the time I get a little more agitated, "The day is coming to a close, what do I still need to get done ?" You're probably thinking I should be doing and not blogging, yes? And I guess I could, but there has to be some balance. I enjoy blogging and I'm hoping that my public venting will ease the agitative angst and I'll smoothly segue into some super-productive stupor. I doubt it, but the thought did make me smile...well, it was more like a grimace-like wince sort of thing, but certainly the closest I've gotten to a smile this expletive-filled Wednesday afternoon.


Inner-peace would be nice...

I just found your blog. It is wonderful. I wanted to wish your sweet Lupe a wonderful journey over the rainbow bridge. Chi's are amazing little dogs. I have 5, all rescues. If you visit my blog, you will see their pics. My blog is named after my chubby chi - Apple. Fondly referred to as Fat Dog.

I was off work for 4 days in a row and didn't get anything I "needed" to do done. Instead, I made a charm necklace, watched some mindless television, drank wine and ate chips and salsa for all 4 days! It felt good though :)

Yep, me too. I'm seriously needing to add some energy inducing movements into my dull days.

Sometimes being left alone is much more attractive than engagement =)

I feel like I never get anything done because I always have little bits of everything to do. Hope that makes sense.
