Too Much to Do

I used to think that there would come a day when I would have more time to do things with than I would have things to do and then I could finally catch up on the backlog. That was a couple of years ago, and I have sense come to grips with the fact that I cannot be all things, as much as I would like to. Nor can I do all things, not even just the things that I want to do or even just the things that I want to and could reasonably do (thus, organizing a military coup in France is out... at least for this year.)

Making matters worse, it seems that every time I turn around, there are more things that I would like to do and more things that I really ought to do popping up. So, even as I have more things that I would like to do, I have less time to do them because of everything else that I have to do. But in any event, I do have to say that I am extremely thankful that I have so many awesome oppurtunities, great friends, and just a generally wonderful life.

Yes, it annoys the hell out of me that I have so far to go and so short of a time to get there, but at least I'll be travelling in good company. And to those of you who have gotten annoyed by my lack of truly depressing thoughts of late, I'm sorry... come hang around me for a bit and you'll come to understand the reason for the unseemly optimism.
