7 Days

I saw this image on Pinterest – pinned from here – and it totally resonates. Right now, my list of things to get done & things I want to achieve is a mile long. Maybe 2 miles. I am in the process of taking an in-depth photography class online, re-doing my blog & website, developing an Etsy shop, participating in a few other classes online, prepping for a craft fair, making cards, doing Project Life and planning for some extended vacations, thanks to a change in my husband’s job (no complaint there!). Oh, and being a mom! 
I want to make the most out of my 7 days. I don’t want to keep saying ‘someday I’ll catch up on Project Life’, ‘someday I will learn Photoshop’, etc. I am struggling with time management though and would love to hear some thoughts. Do you ban TV? Do you wake up in the early hours of the morning before your little ones to catch up on laundry, cooking, etc? Do you ban blog reading at length? Limit time on Pinterest? 
Any thoughts totally welcome. I want to make the most of my 7 days. I want a lot less ‘somedays’.

    Rachel, you are a busy lady, that’s for sure! I don’t have any clever solutions, but to say that you aren’t alone in your challenge of wanting to do it all. I usually fall short of my own (high) expectations, but one of the things I do to carve out more crafty time is to limit TV watching. I rarely sit on the couch and veg, I do sometimes watch programs on my laptop while crafting (no commercials!), so I am not totally out of the loop. I also stopped doing laundry… Just kidding! Kind of. LOL! The other thought I have is to figure out how important each aspect or goal is to you and figure out if the amount of time you spend on it is congruent with the value you have assigned it. Good luck, and when you figure it all out, please let me know!
