Coulda Shoulda Woulda

It seems there is never enough time to do all the things or create or photograph as much as I'd like. I spend a lot more time thinking about things than actually doing them.

Every day there are things I have to do, a million things I could/should do, and then a whole list of things I'd like to do. Although some days it's a short list...sleep.
And rarely do they overlap.
Like I'd like spend the afternoon taking photos, but I have to get groceries and I should do laundry and wash something that's inevitably sticky or crumby.

How do you decide what you are going to do each day? What gets done?

you totally read my mind...I have that feeling a lot. It's hard to get EVERYTHING done that you would like too, and still feel like you are doing what you have too do! Maybe today! Lol! Having a list helps but can be over whelming too it seems to get too big some days!

ps. I usually use the evenings to get things done as do most moms and have been trying to get up a touch earlier to get at least my workout in before the kids wake up...the days are NEVER long enough!

I have all but given up on getting everything done that I want to. And right now it's stressful and makes me very cranky because we are in show the house, sell the house mode (you know what that's like)
Not sure how I prioritize but I do and some things just have to go because it'll drive you crazy.
And then there's the get stuff done during nap time method, or right after bedtime (which is a struggle because by then all the mom's are SO tired) and the make list for myelf and husband method, and the wish for a nanny to come by so I can sleep but then reality hits and I do it anyway method.....
whew! Just thinking about all this makes me tired.

A load of laundry per day. W helps.
Dishwasher during breakfast.
Baths in the morning after breakfast.
W helps vacuum.
I'll admit it...TV while in highchair is a wonderful nanny/assistant to help with accomplishing things during meal times.
