Time stimulus

I need a bit more time. It seems to me that the older I get, the more I find that I want to do, and the less time I can find to do it all. I just need a bit more time.

I don’t mean “time” as in the number of days that God has allotted to me; I trust that he has that all worked out. I mean “time” as in the number of hours I have in a day. I just need a few more, please.

I get up shortly after 4:30 in the morning because mornings are my most productive times. The problem with that is that I’m ready for bed by 7:00 at night! (maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but not by much). By the time I get home from work, walk the dogs, and make dinner there aren’t a lot of productive hours left in this old girl.

I have quilts I want to make, books I want to read, stories I want to write, closets to clean, recipes to try, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera! And of course I still have those must-do things we all have like bill paying, grocery shopping, hair appointments, doctor appointments and so on.

So, I was thinking, while they’re debating about this stimulus package and trying to determine the best place to inject some cash into the economy, how about some discussion about a time stimulus package?

Inject a few more hours in the day. I, for one, would be very grateful.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. If I could have those few hours to myself, sure, I take ’em! 🙂

  2. AMEN! I will second that motion! Not enough hours in my day either!

  3. Right now another half hour for lunch would be nice. I really need a nap. I tried to take one but that thirty minutes went by way too fast. I am listening to the radio, sounds like they are still pushing. Only time will tell.

  4. Hey, that is a smart idea! I’d love 2 more hours per day…and a dose of extra energy along with that! Where do I sign up?

  5. Lawd! I know!….Of course, I could just as for the hours back I’ve frittered away this week so far – got to at least be a day’s worth in there? I wonder….! The time I was putting off looking at edits because it gives me a headache to edit my own stuff…bleah!

  6. Oh if only my days were an hour of "to dos", followed by an hour of R&R, and then and hour of writing and that went on all day–how much I would accomplish! I know I'm busier now that I'm retired then when I worked and was involved in lots of church and community activities!

  7. There is never enough time. There are so many things to do and places to see and stories to write!
    I must go now and get busy!!!

  8. I agree, 2 more hours of daylight would be great!
