Easter thoughts

Crap title really,but it`s Easter and i`ve been thinking so it seemed appropriate.What about?i hear you cry,well the fact that even if i streamline my interests and i only collect and paint the figs i really really want it`s still going to take forever,or is that the point?a collection of wargames figures is always a work in progress and it`s never really complete,or do you take a project to a certain point and then move on to something else,maybe to return to it later,or draw a line under it?Or,am i missing the whole point,that it`s a hobby,meant to be relaxing and fun and i should stop f*&king worrying about it and just get on with it,maybe?
For anyone interested i`ve narrowed my current interests down to the following,not in historical order:
First Carlist War 1834-41(you know i`m not too sure those are the correct dates)
First Schleswig-Holstein War 1848-50
WW1 Western front August1914-(about)April 1915
WW1 in Palestine and Mesopotamia
Second Seminole War 1835-42
Austro-Prussian War 1866
Italian invasion of Abyssinia 1935-36
The Thirty Years War 1618-48(including Poles,Turks and Muscovites)
And i`ve just sent off for some samples for the Rif War 1927(ish)

But i can hear my baby daughter crying and i`ve just heard Sarah singing "All By Myself" which i think is a non too subtle hint so i`d better go......more on this subject later.
