My time is precious. I run around like a mad woman every day of my life with a crazy work schedule teaching at 5 different schools, schlepping my kids around town, volunteering at my kids’ school, leading children’s performances and rehearsals, shopping for my family, etc. Usually I can handle it all pretty well, but around the holidays, I feel a little nutty. There seems like there is so much added stuff, and as much as I love my life, it’s overwhelming.
This is why I was so steamed when I waited at home yesterday for Best Buy to show up with the delivery of our new TV (Yes….so excited about that!), and they never arrived! They gave a two-hour window, so where were they? When we called earlier, we were told we were “next on the list.” Two hours out of my day is huge, and I was truly peeved that they were late. I even gave them an extra 45 minutes…and still no show! We’ve been rescheduled to this morning. Supposedly they will be here between 8-8:30. Fingers crossed.
Yes, time is precious, and anybody who wastes mine is on my s&*% list. At least, that’s how I’m feeling today.
That is why my song of the day is “Time in a Bottle” by 70’s folk artist, Jim Croce. Yes, Jim, I would like to “save time in a bottle,” too. Wouldn’t we all? Click HERE to commiserate with me and hear the song. It really is a beautiful one, and if I’m going to spend my time leisurely doing anything…it’s listening to music like this.
