Have you ever played a board game where the object is to do something quickly or see how much of something you can do in a specified amount of time? Perfection, Scattegories, Outburst, Pictionary. You know the kind, where there is usually a timer clicking away while you try to think or an ominous looking hour glass pouring sand from one hemisphere to another...taunting you to go faster, f a s t e r, f a s t e r, before you
Fun stuff, right? The stress, the pressure. Seriously it is fun, when it's a game. But I think those games were loosely based on my life.
I feel as if every day starts with an hour glass being flipped over and as the day goes on, the sand seems to fall faster and faster and faster until *poof* it's midnight and I have to get to bed so I can get my 6 hours of sleep and start the next day. Invariably the list I had in my head - the to do list I wanted to tackle for the day - never gets finished because I ran out of time. So the next day starts with another flip of the hour glass and a modified to do list that gets longer and longer with added leftovers from the day before.
And so on, and so forth.
It's never ending. Especially this time of year when the days are even shorter and the to do list is even longer.
Anybody up for a game of Boggle?
