    The day starts filled with what has to be done
    so much I have to do. The hours in the day refuse
    to cooperate with my agenda. I end my night with
    only 3/4 of my goals accomplished.
    It seems that I am running on empty and
    there is no where to refill.
    Wishing I could pause life on
    TiVo and rewind to the portions I seemed to
    overlook.
    And in this run I seem to loose portions of
    myself. Portions that must be important
    yet I don't miss them until I sit down and
    am quiet.
    And so I think it is time to
    STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!
    But I fear if I do I'll miss something..........

    Thanks for all the feedback $$R$$, watz,queen,deeply,gempis and SwtT.
    Life seems to have a hold on me running me ragged. Needed to find some normality so I dropped this. Thanks for listening...
