where has the time gone

I see it has been nearly a year since I posted a blog, if there is anything I am good about it is procrastination,
I do keep a full schedule, trying to make life a bit easier but nothing yet. My husband needs lots of my attention, and I have gradually found myself as the one that makes all the decisions, and all the household chores, yard work, putting out the weekly garbage etc. and we have always shared this, so I am having trouble taking it all on.
I go to the gym 3 times a week, and this is very important to me, my away, social, and exercise, I belong to silver sneakers, it is great a 60 minute low impact aerobics class, we work according to our body, and I am one that always pushes, hard not to.
I walk at least 30 minutes every morning, usually in my house, if the weather permits (it has been so very hot here this year) I go outside, but find my stamina (ability to walk distances and do stairs) has pretty much gone out the window, having tests run this week, and next week, lungs and heart to try to pinpoint my problem, I keep asking if it just my age, but doctors insist that it isn't so we will see, my treadmill performance is outstanding, my blood pressure just goes so high they have to pull me off before I really have reached my peak, or so they tell me, I love yard work, the weeding, digging in my beds, and a bit of raking, I have a gardener who does the mowing, edging and raking up the main leaves.
I guess my mind needs to come to the conclusion that something has to go, it will not be sparks, I enjoy it, not my gym, I do very little reading anymore, and when I am relaxing, I like to crochet, I have been working on my Great grand son's afghan since about May, still not done, but maybe by Christmas, so that has cut into my reading time, and of course the computer is a real time sapper, games, articles, etc. so I need to limit my time on that, I have been on it for 2 hours today already, that should open my eyes, and I am not the best housekeeper in the world, so I can not do less than I do. my husband is easy about his meals, is happy with about anything I fix.
I need to work more on my de-cluttering my office/junk room, this is a daily chore that I really never seem to get caught up with, this is paper, as well as clothes, and little doo-dahs that I can't seem to part with.
I need to get off, fix our breakfast, and finish cleaning the bathroom, so I will try to do better on my blogging, and work hard at staying away from this candy, I bought for the little trick or treater, and it is a losing battle so far, I have a realy problem with candy.
