    руки не доходят

    What does this sentence mean:
    Все у меня руки не доходят до одной работы.
    I just am lazy and don't get around to it because I don't feel like it, or I really don't have no possibility of doing it.

    I can't find free time to focus my attention on performing (go around) this job. [Though it is not clear if I am lazy or very busy.]

    It means "I have no time to spend on this yet, because I'm busy with other tasks [either more important or just more easy]". It may mean "I don't feel like it, so I still work on other [more pleasant or straightforward] tasks".
