My Life is Crazy

My life is getting crazy.
(probably with how sidetracked I am with my mission to write two books)
 I know someone once said this: 

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. 
— H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Thats the guy. 
Personally, I don't know how they did it.
But at least I'm not like the guy who wrote this poem.

Too Busy

by Bruce Lansky

I've folded all my laundry
and put it in the drawer.
I've changed my linen, made my bed,
and swept my bedroom floor.
I've emptied out the garbage
and fixed tomorrow's lunch.
I've baked some cookies for dessert
and given dad a munch.

I've searched the house for pencils
and sharpened every one.
There are so many things to do
when homework must be done.
But I'm not procrastinating...
I'd rather be doing work (I like doing work, but then again I'm very strange),
but the site I do it on is getting upgraded.
Like most things today. 
First it was these, then this, now it's that
I have a really old DS,
That I'm surprised hasn't blown up by now.
It has as many problems as a sieve has holding water,
and I have no interest getting a new one
Well, I will as soon as it a) starts to smoke b) breaks in half or c) blows up.
My money is on B and C  
maybe I should get an iPad, Mom, Mom, are you listening???

  7. I often write about the idea that "no time" is just one of those easy excuses we use not to do things we should (especially take care of ourselves.)

    And yes - the iPad is the BEST creation ever. :-)

    Best,
