THINGS WE DO TO OURSELVES

Lately it seems to me that times passes me by at lightning speed. It 's no sooner Monday that it's Friday again and the weeks and months vanishes before my eyes and the wrinkles grows deeper around my eyes, my knees cracks as I climb the stairs and it seems like only yesterday, it was summer. I'm always turning the calendar pages and just got a new 2011 calendar a few days ago.

It was never like that when I was younger and I used to accomplish so much in a day and had something to show for my efforts.  WHAT HAS GONE WRONG???

I get up early, eat and run to the barn to work and get back home and run to check the phone to see who left a message, to  the computer to see who has left a message for me on my blog or on Rug Hooking Daily, whose birthday is it today, who posted a new photo of their rug,  or my Gmail account or my other email account and I go to bed later now too. That's enough to wear me out.

I've been thinking about it a lot lately and when Doris, my blogging friend suggested that blogging was a TIME THEIF, it made me realize that she was perfectly right. My rug is at a stand still, my quilt is crying from loneliness and abandon, I'm feeling unproductive and so I'm taking stock of how I spend my leisure time.

I love, love blogging. It's a creative side of me that I had no idea I had until I took the plunge when a wise Rug Hooking Daily friend plainly said, JUST DO IT.

Well, I JUST DID IT, not knowing what I would talk about  or even how to start a blog or what it would be called.  My pride got in the way and I  didn't asked for help but started to investigate and I can't even remember where I started but felt the thrill of discovering my way around Blogging. I thought that maybe I'd blog once  week, but every evening when I sat at the computer key board, it was like my fingers were magic although I'm a two finger typist. lol...
Words flowed from my fingers effortlessly without even having to think what I was going to talk about. I had to learn how to upload photos etc.

My blog was started on August the 2nd, 2010 and now I have 33 Followers and  others who follows privately around the glob as my stats suggests.

I feel guilty if I don't check everyones of my followers blogs and leave comments and the same goes for Rug Hooking Daily.

Why am I so caring about people I never met and probably never will meet. Well, that how I am...
With my schedule, it's even difficult to find time to plan meals and do all that needs to be done. Where do I draw  the line and make time for myself and my other hobbies??? That's the difficult part. I love it all and want it all, greedy ole me.

What is the solution? Has anyone got an answer for me? HELP!   JB
