Never Seems to Be Enough Time in the Day! How Do We Get It All Done?

It seems there is never enough time in the day to get everything done.  My house lately has been so chaotic, that I don’t really get the peace and quiet to sit down and do my work. At this moment, I am writing while my daughter, her boyfriend, and my 2-year-old grandson are visiting. You can imagine how “not quiet” it is! I had only gotten maybe a couple hours’ work in before they got here. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family more than anything! But sometimes I just want some quiet time.

My husband was supposed to set me an office up in the back bedroom when my son moved out, but it has yet to get done. The room needs to be repainted since my son and his girlfriend decided to write all over the wall. My computer desk also needs to be moved back in there. I really want it set up before I start back to school in August. It will definitely help me to focus a lot better. I guess I will need to start bugging him more about it 😉

I guess part of my problem is that I overload myself. I am such a major multitasker and I have more than one thing going on at the same thing. My mind races all the time and never slows down. It gets so frustrating.  I haven’t figured out away to do “a little at a time” and honestly don’t think I can.  

Does anyone else feel that there isn’t enough time in the day? Do you feel overwhelmed at times? If so, what do you do?

    I always do. You bring up a good point though, I do it to myself. I always want to get so much much done. I tend to overload myself with stuff to do and when I don’t get it all done, I get upset for not doing everything.

    Your situation sounds pretty typical! It’s really tough to work from home. Time management is tough enough when we have personal issues around work hours and multitasking. But when you add in family members who may not respect or be aware of our boundaries, it’s even harder!

    You are talking to the queen of to much and not enough time. I am just now beginning to write more again, I had to let it go. I do love my home office, I use it for writing and for the business.

    Sometimes I have this thought: only of there were more hours in a day. I always run aout of time.
