Send in the Clones!

Here's a familiar lament for everyone - "so much to do and no time to do it"!

I think that's going to be my theme for the week as I try to juggle work, tasks around the house, massive amounts of picture editing, and the overwhelming need to sleep from time to time.  I mean seriously, if I don't get outside and mow the lawn here pretty soon the city is going to think there's some sort of a wildlife preserve that has taken over part of the street I live on and if I don't get to the grocery store and restock the cupboards, there's going to be some very hungry and cranky wildlife (both two and four-footed) right here in the house that is going to be none too happy with me either!  

Sigh ... I could really use a clone of myself so that one of me could go to work and the other me could stay home and get the myriad list of other things done - which includes reading everyone else's blogs and occasionally updating my status on Facebook while getting my virtual behind kicked by various and assorted friends in Lexulous!

Ah well, considering that isn't going to happen I'd best rustle up some ambition and try to at least get the lawn mowed and then make a quick run to the local Stop & Shop before I drag myself back into work later this afternoon. It's tough, though, as the draw of wedding picture editing is strong and hard to resist (hence the reason I found myself editing pictures in bed last night until 2:15 in the morning!) but like the Little Engine that could ... "I think I can, I think I can, I think ... oooooh, cake!"

  3. Cake! Yum. Love the Gerber's, they are my favorite.

    I know exactly what you mean about the draw of editing vs. doing anything else.

    I was caught in it yesterday. Sleeping baby meant rare computer time, yet I hadn't fed any of us yet for the evening. Luckily Hubby needed auto parts so I suckered him into taking us with him and hitting a drive thru. Picture editing won!!!

  4. You'll catch up eventually, but it sounds like you need to hit the store for provisions before you do anything else. Everyone gets cranky if there isn't any food in the house. Just saying.

    I love the cake. Looks very yummy.

    Have a terrific day Linda. Big hug. :)

  6. Yeah, I'm not very good at balancing my time between the things I have to do, and the things I want to do.

  7. Oh! Cake!!!

    I love the title of tis post! Sometimes I need to clone myself! Seriously, don't deprive yourself of sleep - ever. Despite what the popular phrase "catching up on lost sleep" says, you never really do catch up. Be kind to yourself and sleep a good 8-10 hours a day. You'll be so much more productive in every area of your life!

    And so ends today's motherly lecture! LOL!

    Big hugs xo

  10. ah, a clone would be nice..if she would vacuum and do laundry and such!

    I haven't been blog visiting much and I need to catch up with you, Duchess.

    There definitely is not enough time to do everything. I agree.
