I completely agree! Phoo, I can barely keep up with my email! :))) And the
magazines have made a mountain next to the snake tank. And the book list
has grown to several pages. Where's my time????????

I mean, I know I'm older and slower but this is absurd!

And if I don't feel like tackling a particular project there's always a
nap time for about 15 minutes to re-infuse me with energy and enthusiasm!
