Where does the time go?

It kills me. If this was March, it would be the Ides of March. but in February we are already more than halfway through it. This month is far too short to cram it all in. I mean you have Groundhog day, presidents day, Valentines day, black history month, Ash Wednesday, and what seems like 20 different family birthdays all going on in a very short 28 days. We have even managed to cram in the Winter Olympics this year (are you watching, it is quite a show they are putting on for us).

Still, I seem intent on getting more into my days and out of that I seem to get less out of my time. every little project, just a minute or two is all it will take, turns into hours that I could have been busy doing something productive. Things I didn't intend on doing at all turn into full scale projects with diagrams and notes. Stories that I know I should work on get left in the dust for shinier, newer projects.

Happy Monday!

My daughter just completed all her ski races. Yay! I have my sedentary weekends back until track season.

Rebecca, thankfully we don't have to worry about skiing as a sport around here. basketball is about as wintery as we get. Have fun with your open weekends.

You forgot Pancake Tuesday!!!

Be glad your not in a country that celebrated Chinese New Year ; ) In some of them, everything shuts down for up to fifteen days.

I have the shinier new idea problem too (three short stories glare at me, waiting to be edited).

I'm the same way lately. I can't seem to really finish anything. Yesterday one of the things I wanted to do was read a few short stories by one of my favorite authors, and I only got a few read. When you can't even manage to finish reading something you enjoy, you know your time management skills are in the toilet. :)

I blame it on February being a short month.

Yet another victim of the Februaries. Stay the course, Jamie. The sun will shine again and then all projects will sparkle like Emo vambires.

Cate, Every day is pancake day in my world. Or waffles. Sometimes French toast- pretty much anything you can put syrup on.

Nat, that is my kind of holiday.

Danielle, I think we all need to get together at a pub and do a serious write/edit session. First round is on me.

K.C., I have known my time management skills are lacking for quite some time. I didn't need February rubbing my nose in it.

Aaron, that was my first honest laugh of the day.

I lost a huge chunk of Feb already myself. Oh dear...
