Life getting in the way of living

I have seen a trend of life preventing me from getting anything done.

I am trying to sell my van to clear out the driveway, but I cannot find time to put in the new brake pads which would facilitate quicker sale. I even have a barter lined up with a very interested party, but school eats up most of my day...... followed by kids appointments or extracurricular activities..... that precede dinner preparation..... then homework if there isn't anything needing done around the house that carries higher priority.

I am fully aware of the irony inherent in the fact that doing things is preventing me from doing things.

The irony is painful at times.

I know it boils down to priorities, but I wish I had more time to make things, even taking things apart (read: breaking) has taken a seat on the sideline while I try to eek out every minute in the day to take care of necessities. I have this hour between classes to squeeze homework in, and here I am blogging about not having time. I have no homework due until Tuesday (today is Friday and my homework is mostly done) so this hour is basically fruitless other than this post.

I slept very little last night, so exhaustion is playing a part in the tone of this post, but the message is the same.

I know I am not alone........................... everyone could use an extra hour in their day.

Next time I get a spare hour I am going to do the brakes in the van, wish me luck.
