Time...What A Concept

There is so much to do and never enough time to do it all. I know people everywhere experience the same phenomena. So why did we invent the concept of time again? Someone remind me; it seems so useless.

I’ve taken a permanent leave from work, in a way. It’s a rather long story so suffice to say…Due to some health problems I’m not going into work anymore but I’m still doing a minimal amount of stuff for them at home. Now, one would think that I would have boo coo amounts of time on my hands; it couldn’t be less true. It seems that no matter how much time gets freed up not only does more time take its place, but it leaches into even more time. It’s just freaky I tell ya.

I’ve been doing a lot of writing lately. I’ve been wanting to sew but I haven’t made time for it; although I do intend to work on some stuff this weekend. I’ve managed a bit of time in the yard and garden, but no where near what I would like. I get a lot of help around the house as far as chores are concerned, so that doesn’t take a lot of time for me. I run errands frequently. But again it doesn’t consume the better part of my time. I get up each morning between 6:30 and 7:00 and I don’t go to sleep until almost midnight. Still, I never seem to have enough time. I’m forever saying to myself, “Where did the day go?” For example, it’s already 12:30 in the afternoon; I’m clueless as to where the morning went…it’s just gone. I think there may be a conspiracy. What other explanation could there be?

Well, at this point I guess I’m going to write some more. I’d also like to get some sewing done and I have a crochet project or two that I need to get busy on. On a completely different note…R got the job we had been hoping for!!!! This means that I no longer need to work, which is such a relief, of course R says that I need to write that million dollar book now…but no pressure. At the moment, despite the health issues and lack of time, things are looking up.

Terri, sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Maybe now you can make it out to The Chicory?

I know about time. It just disappears!

Hey Charmi,

Well, yes I would love to make it over there. I have another problem at the moment, though. R bumped my desk rather hard yesterday evening and a big honkin' candle fell off and just happened to land directly on the hard drive of my laptop. Now, dumbass me, hasn't made any backups for a long time and it appears that I may have lost everything. 3 books, all of my poetry, my magazine articles, my Real Services stuff and much...much...more. I'm trying to get the system to boot at least into safe mode, to try for a recovery, but so far all I'm getting is, "Operating system not found" and in the BIOS its reading "Hard Drive""NONE" Not a good thing. I guess we'll see what happens. In the meantime, I can access the net via R's computer, but that's about it. :-(

That's extremely bad news! Take it to the emergency room. Call 911!
