Work Time

Jeez! The old saying about it never rains, it pours is true. Just lately, there seems to be so much that needs to be doing and proportionally little time to do it all in.

Which was why it was incredibly good to catch up with Andy, Tri and the boys for the first time in many months. Looking at their calendar, it seems that they are even busier than we are. Dunno where they find the energy…

We had a great lunch and a long chat well into the evening. Orrin demonstrated his growing guitar skills (at age 7 he already has the rock-star poise down pat!) and he seemed to enjoy our little jam. He’s doing well, but as his teacher says repeatedly in his homework book:

Must concentrate more

But what the hell – he’s enjoying it an that’s what’s most important. smile

With long hours and winter closing in, the cold season has arrived and I have been laid low with the annual lurgy (thanks Nick!) – on the mend a little now though.

I keep telling myself that as soon as the workload eases off a little, we should take a break and head off somewhere for a few days, it’s a dangerous mindset; the trouble is that there is always something that needs to be done.

Perhaps I need to think about the words of a certain Mr Todd Snyder…

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think.
Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink.
The years go by, as quickly as a wink.
Enjoy yourself, Enjoy yourself,
It’s later than you think.

You work and work
For years and years
You’re always on the go.
You never take a minute off,
Too busy making dough.
Someday, you say, you’ll have your fun
When you’re a millionaire.
Imagine all the fun you’ll have
In some old rocking-chair.

You’re gonna take that ocean trip
No matter come what may.
You got your reservations
But you just can’t get away.
Next year, for sure, you’ll see the world,
You’ll really get around;
But how far can you travel
When you’re six feet underground?

You worry when the weather’s cold,
You worry when it’s hot.
You worry when you’re doing well,
You worry when you’re doing not.
It’s worry, worry all of the time,
You don’t know how to laugh.
They’ll think of something funny
When they write your epitaph.

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think.
Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink.
The years go by, as quickly as wink.
Enjoy yourself, Enjoy yourself
It’s later than you think.
