Not enough time

In the classes I'm taking for my Ph.D. we are creating a personal learning network. It is basically a list of all the people, websites, sources,etc, for information in our chosen field. Mine happens to be educational technology. There are a plethora of resources in that field. A. Plethora. Some of them are really, really good. I would love to spend time sitting and reading through them. But I just don't have the time. Between the classes I'm taking, the classes I'm teaching, and trying to keep some semblance of sanity, I just do not have the time. I workout in the mornings, I work hard at school all day (much harder than I ever worked at my other school), I come home exhausted and usually go in the pool for 15-20 minutes to try and revive myself. I'm trying to get back into walking the dogs after that (still a work in progress). Then I will sit at the computer and do a little bit for the classes I'm taking, nothing serious as I'm usually pretty brain dead. Then it's time for dinner. After that I clean up and watch TV for a little bit. Then it is off to bed. Yes, there are days when I waste time by taking a little nap or playing on the computer, but that really doesn't amount to much - though some days it's more than others. So how do I find the time to keep up on all this stuff? I really don't know.
