Wonder Woman?

Ok so far I have not figured out how to do everything that I HAVE to do as well as everything that I WANT to do. How does anyone find the time??? Between taking care of my family, taking care of my home, working, and than any extra curricular activities how are you supposed to do it all? I think I'm pretty organized. I think I've got it all together and yet some how the day just slips by with out me accomplishing even half of what I planned to. I'm a list person so I start with a list but that's still not the answer. In fact that only thing the list is doing lately is making me even more aware of what I did not manage to get to. I've tried staying positive and just added to the following day's list but then it just seems to grow and well that's ended up being pretty discouraging!! So instead of feeling like "Wonder Woman" I feel more like I WONDER how a WOMAN can get it all done???
I know I can't be the only one to ever feel this way so...
I'm wondering- What do YOU do to accomplish it all??

1) Accept that I'll never do it ALL.
2) Write the most mundane of tasks on my list, just so I can cross them off and make myself feel better. ie: "Get up." That sort of thing.
3) Keep a running to do list. I call it my "Whenever I can do list"
4) Eat a bowl of ice cream and read People magazine once I've accepted that the day won't be completed in precise order running parallel to the order in my head.

Hey I finally figured this blog site out.
Here is my suggestions:
When making your list just write down everything that you can think of. Then go down the list and number them in order of priority.
Your goal is to get at least the 1,2 and 3 done. That way at the end of the day you feel you have accomplished something. If you do more than three things then hell you are supermom. If you do less than three then put what you didn't do at the top of the list. Obviously some things that more time then others and of course with a busy family things change constantly through out the day.
If that fails to make you feel good than heck go to #4 of Lemon Makin Mama and call me over.
Love you
