    Maybe it's just me but i need three of me:
    One to cook and clean, pay bills, work
    One to do all the errands and shopping
    One to be able to QUILT whenever i want!!!!
    Lately there never seems to be enough hours in the day or
    enough days in the week. Is it me or is that for all quilters???

    it's the same for me, where does the time all go. I never seem to have enough hours. Work, take care of MIL, go see new grandbaby in hospital, go to next floor see DD (kidney problems),help hubby in field, transport driver for hubby, cook, clean, laundry, (try to fit sewing in). Off to bed, (oops forgot to turn on dishwasher), back up...............oh I need a vacation.

    I need more than 3 of me. I can't seem to get anything done with all the I wants around here and the constant mommy, mommy, mommy. It is as if there isn't another adult in the house to do things.

    I used to maintain that I didn't need more hours in the day. What I needed was a cook, housekeeper, nanny and gardener. Then I could do what I wanted to do.

    I'm retired and still don't have a lot of time to quilt, probably more than some people but not nearly enough.

    Unless you count ironing out the fabric before cutting.

    I am sick today and I haven't got really anything done yet. I sewed a bit but it also makes me tired. Getting over a bad cold.

    I am happily un-employed. It means less money, but I can quilt whenever I want.

    Never enough time, but I won't wish my life away either with hoping for Friday to come. If I could just figure a way to go without sleep, I sure would get a lot more done.

    Sounds like me!!! There is always something that HAS to be done before I can get to quilting!

I don't work but I am in guilds, bees, quilt for Project Linus and Quilts for kids, and take quilting classes to continue to learn, take care of MIL and Mom and hubby....blah..blah..blah...on it goes. I think we quilters are superwomen and supermen. Woohoo for us!!!!!!!!!Keep on quilting.

    I have been unemployed and just found out today I finally got a job. Now I have to get used to working full time again, which is not a bad thing considering the alternative. I have been thinking that I might give up watching TV at night, record my programs, and quilt and read instead.

    I would also need one to groom because I always have fuzzies and strings hanging off in odd places.

    I am happily unemployed, not even looking, some days I can sew all day. others its a struggle to get in 15 minutes! Even with no kids at home there are always things that need to get done, then there is the list of errands that someone else thinks I need to do...

    There is never enough time for quilting. But I enjoy everyday, whatever it brings.

    I thot when I retired I'd have more time. Then when DH passed away, I was sure I'd have more time. Now that I live alone, I'd have more time. Who was I kidding? I could quit my sewing guild, master gardeners, AARP and Bromiliad club. Then I'd be bored to tears.
