For the "Time Management Challenged"

Good morning Blogland neighborhood! Today our topic is "Time Management" .....OR....more precisely, the lack thereof. Oh sure .... on the outside we here at MBIAJ Headquarters appear to be on top of it all....completely in control and organized, but .........huh?......

....oh.....not really? you don't think so?.......oh......(sigh) FINE !!!

....ANYWAY, as I was saying, despite outward appearances, we here at MBIAJ are "TIME MANAGEMENT CHALLENGED" !!! ..... and we take comfort in knowing we're not alone! Author/illustrator Monica Sheehan had a fun cartoon in Real Simple Magazine a few years ago that we cut out and posted on the wall of the home office because we can TOTALLY relate !!! ENJOY !!

Wasn't that hysterical?!?!?!! PLEEEEASE tell me that you all can relate too!!!!(and if you can't, don't tell me cause I'll develop an inferiority complex !)

Anyhow, on that note (of being "Time Management Challenged") I'd like to take a minute and say a group thank you to all of you nice gals who take the time to read these blatherings and ramblings and leave such nice comments ! (sorry the "Comment Answering Dept" doesn't always have time to answer each comment .... but they LOVE each and every one of them!!! )

....OH! ... by the way....Monica with the daughter at ESU ..... if you send me your email I can email you back about other quilt shops in this area that you asked about.

OK, time to zoom and attempt to keep this day on schedule !!!

Be back soon!

i took a time management class about ten years ago because 1)the Company was paying for it and b) it was on Company time and (the real reason)i got a free leather time planner ... needless to say, my time planner burst through its zipper looong ago and the pages exploded all over the place - sigh

Oh, how did someone know my life. I don't know where the time goes but it seems to be going without me.

Oh, time management is so poor that it is, virtually, non-existent. AND...because of that, I often find myself not even knowing where to BEGIN! *sigh*

Nail on the head!!! That is why we have learned to multi-task. I have been reading while walking on the treadmill....maybe I could floss while I am reading and walking. Really funny, but oh so spot on...and throw a few teens into the mix...yikes.
♥, Susan
