There's never enough time!

"You run, you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again"- Pink Floyd

These song lyrics describe exactly how I feel lately. Although I have a smaller load than I did first semester, I still am in the first year of a challenging job and concurrently in grad school.

With both work, school, and home I feel like I can never catch up all the way with everything that needs to be done. There is just not enough time in the day. I can't stay up at school all night or spend all night working on things that I've taken home because it is so important to re-charge for the daily activities that come along with being an elementary teacher. If I don't, it is hard to find the enthusiasm to make it through the day.

Then, if I do anything extra on the weekend, it just reduces the time I have to rest and catch up on work and painting. For example, this weekend I spent all day Saturday (6:45-10pm) in Sugar Land helping with an art contest. It was fun, but exhausting!

It's just amazing how fast the hours fly by on the weekends and nights when I'm home. I wish I could press pause! I guess that is what summer break is for...less that 3 months to go! Woo hoo!
