there's more than one way to burn a candle

I was reading through my old blogs this evening, trying to think of something fresh to write (or something old to reprint) and ended up laughing at myself.  I have seriously done some outrageous stuff.  Unintentionally most of the time, but still very funny.  I dare you to click through the archives.  There are a lot of crazy times in there. 

Today is not one of those days.

Today I spent most of the day sleeping.  I suppose I needed the sleep.  Admittedly, I have been burning the candle at both ends and a little bit around the middle too. I guess it just caught up with me.

I have to say, sleep is very nice. I might like to do it again very soon.

So while I was sleeping, I decided that I need to find some balance in my life.  I need schedule time for things like family, and fun…and sleep.

Either that or I need to get another me to cook, clean, and do the laundry.  And another me for maintaining my social media.  A me for doing my edits…and maybe to exercise so I don’t have to. 

Until I figure out a way to pull that off, I guess I’ll just have to force the original me to slow down and plan my time better.  Of course, I say that at one-thirty in the morning. 

Baby steps, right?

Until the next time…I’ll be burning the candle from the top down, in my head anyway.
