When I worked at night it was hard to keep up with the house work. But now that i'm not working i'm trying to play catch up around the house. Its way harder than it looks. Seems like I can't catch up.

I agree with that totally. I have been playing catch up everyday with something in my life. I just think it's a losing battle anymore. LOL!!!!

Seems like I am always in catch up mode. I haven't been posting on myLot like I had wanted to this month, I'm trying to catch up on my household organizing, and trying to get a novel ready for submission by the end of the month. It just never seems to end. I too had been sick, but mostly it is just "life in general" that seems to get in the way. I try to make a plan though, so I don't get so far behind that I feel overwhelmed. It's great that you are setting aside time to do the same. Nice post.

Thank you... I really do try and have a game plan so that I'm not overwhelmed by the masses and family and everything else. Then when you get sick it's like a double take LOL!!! Have a nice one.

I feel like I am always playing catch up in some area of my life. There is always something that needs to be done. I just try to keep it all in perspective so I don't get overwhelmed by it. And I have had to learn to ask for help when I need it.

I know that side of it learning to ask for the help. LOL!! I was horrible at that when I was younger. I never liked asking for help. I felt that I could handle everything without help. LOL!!

Girl...I'm always playing catch up with school. This was my mid term week and I had 2 research papers and some exams. I wrote those papers each on the day they were due. It seems like with the kids and my lot (LOL) I have to play school catch up all the time. :(

When it comes to personal life, I'd rather ignore catching up or silently compete with others. There's so much things to do, than simply put my full attention onto it. Besides, it doesn't do me good most of the times! As for mylot, I do know that I've been active for a while and not posting my usual numbers. My reason is because I'm busy, easter has gotten so much to me and the hot/humid weather somehow affects my mode of thinking..

Well sweetheart I hope you have fun catching up! I have had to do that quite a few times and it is quite overwhelming to open your inbox and see all the discussions there! Once you get into it you get engrossed and before you know it you are halfway through! lol As for everything else, there's not much I get to do these days so playing catch up doesn't happen very often! xxxx

Gee you know I had thought that once the kids left home it would all be so much simpler but noooooo it seems to have made it worse, they always seem to have something for me to do with the kids or such and than i fall behind at my own home. I try to say each evening what i would like to get done tomorrow to get caught up, some days it works and some days it dosnt. Im begining to think its a never ending circle.
