How does time go by so swiftly?

I have an issue with time, I confess.  I'm beginning to think it's an OCD thing but I feel like I spend each and every day rushing madly around, ruled by time.  Tied to the alarm clock to get up, the rush to get out the door on time, to work on time, to a meeting on time, back to my office to squeeze in some time to get something accomplished, rushing home to try and get some time in on my house or studying or even worse, bringing work home because I didn't have enough time to get it done while I was there. Worrying about how much needs to get done and how little time I have in which to do it.  ARGH!!!  It's crazy to live life this way but I feel like I've been on this train for so long, I don't know how to get off.  I start each day with good intentions of not letting it get to me but it does.  Sheesh, I'm thinking about what time I need to get up tomorrow so I can rush to Farmington for a meeting and rush back to make a veteran's ceremony (which I know I won't make) and get ready for the board meeting I have tomorrow afternoon.  HELP!  How do you get off this train?  Are there things you do to slow yourself down and enjoy your life without feeling its rushing by?

Whew, if your still with me after that rant, here is what I found a little time to work on over the past two weeks.  It's Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow.  I'm finding this a bit easier going than the previous block because there's not as much concentrated stitching in this one.  Although I do seem to be changing colors quite often.  I'd say I'm about 1/3rd of the way through this block. 

Well, I hope your Monday has been a good one.  We're moving into gloomy weather this week with cold and damp and gray.  I'm hoping things will warm up a bit and dry out for Sunday's trick or treat night.  I don't want to be left with all the candy I bought!!!

Sigh, I've felt like that for awhile now :o( I really miss my stitching and the joy I got from it. I just haven't had those blocks of time to just sit and stitch like I used to.

Great progress on CHRH :o)

I take it you don't want a watch for your birthday? *hugs*

I think one thing a lot of women struggle with is making time for ourselves. I'm interested in seeing comments from others...
