When the list of things to do keeps getting longer...

"For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin--real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."
~Alfred D. Souza

Life is good, but...

I'm tired.

I haven't done my taxes. Seriously?

I have two term projects due on Monday and Wednesday next week.

Work has been non-stop busy. Business reviews. Big wigs in town. Lots of schmoozing.

I've been needing to go to Costco for oh, about three months now. Haven't made it yet.

Still haven't bought a new car. Mine died. Well, not exactly, but it's been deemed unsafe to drive.

Been driving an automatic (my mom's -- THANK YOU!) for six weeks now, and I STILL reach for the clutch and my gear shift at every intersections. Seriously, it's like I have driving Alzheimer's. I'm just a stick-shift girl for life. Besides, automatics drive themselves! What's up with that?!?! I can't figure out who decided that was a good idea.

Also, been needing to get my dry cleaning done... for five months.

I find that I don't have time (or energy) to pick up my voicemail for days. That's a little pathetic. Sorry for any unreturned phone calls.

Last week brought the sheer pleasure of singing Rachmaninoff's "All-Night Vigil" three nights (one in The Cathedral). Remember how I said life is good. Marvelously soul-soothing. (But that also meant eight hours of additional rehearsals last week.)

Trying to keep up on Primary. (Oh, I'm the first counselor in the Presidency now. That happened three and a half months ago... haven't had a chance to tell you.) We've lost eight teachers. EIGHT! My goodness.

I'm tired of people using Facebook as their political soapbox. Especially when they are so openly raunchy and disrespectful. It's exhausting. And embarrassing. And... well... annoying.

I need to clean my bathroom. Desperately.

I've been needing to take a few of my favorite pairs of shoes to the shoe repair guy... for three years.

Lots to do.

But, it's Spring. And I can feel it. Loving the fact that I can sleep with my windows open!

Oh and my Driver's License is expiring on Tuesday. Gotta get that taken care of. Oh, and yes, that does mean it's my birthday... :)

You may have a ton of things to do. But, it sounds like you have put these things off because most of them really don't have any effect on your eternal salvation and/or way of living. So, you're doing GREAT! Love ya! And hooray for spring!!!!!!!
