This is the story today. Holy crap.
I just don’t know………..
Filed under Captain Poolie's observations
I used to work 6 days a week 14 hours weekdays and 10 hours Saturday. Then I had to stay awake for the remainder of the weekend to do laundry when my kids were little. You’re smarter than that; you understand the need for time to recharge. (Okay, to be fair I had no choice, but still…)
When I was out on the road performing, I had schedules like that too. But I loved every minute of it.
If you weren’t doing A, you would be doing B. No rest for the wicked. LOL
Oh Mage! You are so right!
There is great worth in getting up, being dressed and on the job at 7:00 am. I seemed to get “the job” done and all the other “stuff” done also. I love how you treasure your time off and pack in the fun. Some just fritter it away.
I don’t fritter away time.
Define busy. I am retired, but I am not idle. If I am reading a book, I am busy. I’ll bet you are too.
If your father was anything like mine, he worked sixty hours a week because it was necessary for the job, and the job was necessary for the family. I did that myself for a number of years — and never felt that it was too much, not until after it was over. 😎
Busy means not being able to take time for yourself.
I did love that particular job. It only meant that some things went on hold for a few years.
I remember my father, who worked 6 to 6-1/2 days per week for 10 hours per day for decades before slacking off to a 5-day week, made the remark after retiring that he was so busy being retired that he wondered how he had ever found the TIME to work for a living! I find myself feeling rather the same way NOW. I wonder if I am really that busy, or if it is that I am now moving so slowly that I just SEEM to be so busy because I take so long to get anywhere? Hmmm…
My dad worked 6 days a week, 10 hours a day. He loved every minute of it.
Hopefully the day will fly by and you will soon wake up and it’s the weekend.
I don’t get weeekends off. That is my second job.
