Not enough hours

Do you feel that? That there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get stuff done?

I’ve been feeling that way a lot more lately. I am not sure if it’s because it’s winter and the whole getting dark early thing just puts me off. Or whether it’s the fact that I have so much to do, there honestly isn’t enough time. Or perhaps, it’s just that I’m really bad at time management and very good at procrastinating.

Let me try and break down the hours in my day.

I spend about 9 hours at work. Approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours on the road getting to and from work. I sleep for about 7 to 8 hours at night. [Yes, I need that to function]. I have currently stopped the gym as I’m going to join a new, cheaper one. Just waiting to the end of July or maybe August for that. [I hate you, winter!!!]

Anyway, without the gym, the above takes about 19 hours.

Add the hour and a half I take to get ready in the morning [starting from struggling to get out of bed]. Then the hour I prepare dinner for the cats and myself.

That’s 21.5 hours gone.

And only 2.5 hours left for everything else!!!

Of which about an hour and a half is spent procrastinating online. And the other 30 minutes spent with the cats.

No wonder I can’t get work done at home or anything.

Sadly, I procrastinate at work too when I have paperwork to complete. Sigh.

Something’s got to change…

…and I call for more than 24 hours a day!!!

Who’s with me?

Until next time,

Cheers!!!
