why I can't seem to get my entire to-do list done during the day.
why I can't seem to sew or quilt a little each day.
It seems that there are never enough hours, yet I have all the modern conveniences that my ancestors didn't have. I don't have to grow my own food (although I'd like to) or clean animals after my hubby shot them. I don't have to make every single meal from scratch (although I do that most of the time). I have a refrigerator, stove, and running water. No going to the well to get water and boiling it to wash dishes, cook, or do laundy. I won't even get into what it took to take baths.
I've been limiting my computer time. I rarely watch tv, most of the time I'm multi-tasking....making dinner, doing lesson plans, etc while the tv is on.
I have a car to drive places, don't have to hitch up a team and drive for hours to get to the store. I don't have to feed and take care of those animals.
Yet, my ancestors grew their own food, smoked or canned it, dealt without all the modern conveniences to do their everyday chores, and still managed to sew their own clothes, knit their own scarves and mittens, and make quilts. Why can't I find time during the day to do some sewing?
One of life's little questions to ponder I guess.......
