Where do I find the time to blog?

Somehow I can't manage to find the time to blog.  I managed to miss the entire month of August.  Not only has the record-breaking heat induced a lethargy, I also feel like my days are speeding past me.

I rejoined a gym in February, and as I get more fit, I keep adding more exercise classes. I do 4 to 6 one hour classes each week.  Plus I just started seeing a "Corrective Trainer" to try to resolve my shoulder and knee issues.  This has resulted in homework in the guise of stretching exercises and, soon to be added, corrective exercises.

If I add together the 8 1/2 hours of time I spend at the office, the one hour round-trip commute, one exercise class, twenty minutes to get to exercise class and back, seven hours of sleep, plus dressing, eating, brushing teeth, giving pills and love to two dogs, etc.  Add to that the time I spend keeping a journal, because my memory is like a sieve, and I am not surprised that available time keeps slipping away from me.

When I get home from work, my eyes are so tired from staring at a computer all day, that I can barely read.  So I spend my evenings, post-exercise, cuddled up on the couch with my dogs watching television.  Which they like. 

Of course, on the weekends, I don't have the work time commitment, but I do have a lawn to mow, house to sort of clean, minor household repairs.

And lately, I've been more inclined to curl up with a mystery or science fiction novel. 

It's not you, it's me.
