Time Management

I have really bad time management skills. I never have time to practice my flute or give my baby a bath... just like in this clock!
For real, I have so much stuff to do and I don't think there are enough hours in the day to do it, unless I stay up all night. Some of my readers know how strange I get when I don't get enough sleep. I've only stayed up all night once in recent memory, and it was a disaster. I couldn't stop laughing. I also tend to tell people things that I shouldn't when I haven't gotten enough sleep, like how bad they look in a certain color, or a secret I was supposed to keep.
But back to time management - I had a whole spring break to do a bunch of school work, and I blew it on scrapbooking... which was super fun, but now I'm in a pinch. I hope I have enough time to shop for one these super sweet time management clocks!

I love it! I don't have enough time for anything either... yet I still manage to piss away time knitting. I really shouldn't be allowed to complain about not having time... I could stop watching t.v. in order to make room for accomplishing things... or could I? (Muah-ah-ah-ah!!)

You really shouldn't be eating big ol' hamburgers at midnight either! I think you need to rearrange the pics on that clock first! and add a "time to blog" picture! :)

As long as you leave yourself enough time to hit yourself on the back with a hammer at 10? Seriously, what is that guy doing in the picture?

Well, as far as I'm concerned, someone who is efficient enough to blog at 7:52 in the morning is doing all right. Right now I'm watching the Real World on DVR and forgetting to fast forward through the commercials. Now THATS what I call a good use of my time!

Amanda! I don't have enough time to eat a big juicy burger or lift weights with my big nasty muscles! That clock is amazing.

yes, I did write this post at 7:52 AM, after I woke up early to complete an assignment and work on a take-home test. Gotta use all my waking hours as productively as possible... so I can watch Project Runway with a clear conscience.

Excellent post. I have time to eat, sit around, sleep and snack again, but the dishes just aren't getting done. Someday I'll have a dishwasher and this will help, i'm sure of it.

Do you really think you have any control over your mismanagement of time? Remember the Strong Family Motto, "If it wasn't for the last minute, we wouldn't get anything done." It is heredity darlin', embrace it, relish the adrenaline rush, savor the panic attack. We live for these moments.

Ahah ... see we really are a lot alike .. celeb gossip (I don't buy the mags either .. but will go so far as choosing the longest line so I will have ample time to skim ...) and much like that habit -- I am not so good at the time management thing - especially now that I am a SAHM ... (do you notice that that could be arranged to say SHAM .. hmm something to think about there)
:0) toooo funny!
