Time in a Bottle, #535


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.


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
