It’s WHAT time?

I seem to be saying this more frequently lately.  Does anyone else feel like the days are getting shorter?  I mean, not just because the summer solstice was on Monday, but because there’s actually less time in the day than there used to be?

It seems like more and more I’ll be working on a spreadsheet for my research, or reading a book, or working in the kitchen, or working on my blog, or reading a paper, or running errands, or moving endless boxes of stuff from the garage to the basement, or whatever I’m doing, and all of a sudden I look at the clock.  “Really?  How did it get to be that time already?  Last I knew, it was three hours ago!”

Anyone else?  At all?  Or is it just me.  I feel like I am busy busy busy, but when I look back at the end of the day (or week), it doesn’t seem like all that much got accomplished.

I do know that at least my husband feels the same way.  He’s started getting up at 5:30 every morning to go work in the garden, or the barn, or the hayfield.  He says it’s the only way he’s ever going to get caught up!  (By the way, he hasn’t been “caught up” since I’ve known him.)

And here I am, out applying for part-time jobs, while thinking about trying to get another project off the ground.  Have I gone insane?

Anybody else having this issue?  What has worked for you?  Do you get up early, or stay up late?  Or have you just reconciled to the fact that “everything” will never get done, and whatever you can do is a bonus?  I’m up for tips here!

    I’ve come to the conclusion that I will seldom get caught up! I get up at 5 and try to be in bed by 9:30, but lately it’s more like 10 or 10:30 before I make it there! It’s even more fun when you add a 2 yr old to the mix!! Good Luck!!

    I read somewhere that as you age, your perspective of time changes. For example, when you’re 5, a year is a very long time. It’s 1/5 of your life; but as you grow older, time “appears” to move faster because your perspective of that time changes. A year in only 1/20 of your life… or less. 😦

    Just because your perspective has changed doesn’t mean that you have less time. You could try prioritizing the most important things. Make a list and check them off as you go. You’ll be amazed at how much you really get done. Or not sleeping…. that one seems to be working for me. 😀

    I’d have finished my time machine to give myself more time if only I had the time to work on it.
