One day...one day.....

This getting up and going to a job you hate lark..................I have been doing it for WAY TOO many years now. Plod, plod, plod. I mean, I like routine and I like security and I like the cheque at the end of the month....but so many times the getting up and getting on with it and the wasting of a life business does get me down a little. Ah well................time to shower/get dressed/venture out into the world. When will this fun ever stop? A girl can only enjoy herself so much you know......

About Last Weekend said...

Oh I feel so bad for you. Staying at home mother is not all joy but at least I get some time to myself. just saw a blog post about which character are you in Downton Abbey, you are the loyal hardworking sweet one (can't remember who name now) married to Bates who's in prison worse luck...

Steve....horrible isn't it? but I suspect I've been doing it for much longer than you have!
Nana...yes, your attitude is right..nearly the weekend eh? have a good one.
ALW...I'm wishing my life away I know but I am yearning for retirement!!....that blog post sounds interesting!

Almost everyone has to work, and almost everyone would rather be doing something else... the secret is to make all the moments between into "a life"!

The time we spend at work can't be changed, but how many times do we waste the hours between staring at the television?

Instead: write a letter to an old friend, try a new recipe, plant something, make something with your hands, do yoga, read books... any such can be tucked into free moments, and will redirect your focus to the time that is yours, rather than the time that is not.

Oh libby, so much empathy here. I have not had time to do your list tag. Tried to think of 10 facts about myself, and they were all coming out "I get up at 5.00am three days a week." "I have two jobs." So I gave up. One day I will do it, when some relaxation can creep in there.

How I wish I had a final salary pension scheme. I am already planning what I will do if /when I retire - I will have a lovely little dog, and play against my chess computer until I can beat it and go up to the next level.

Husband and I have had words on this very subject today. I want us to stop spending so much money each month and save more so that we can retire. He wants us to spend more so we can enjoy ourselves now. He has informed me that we will have to return to the subject this evening. I am dreading it!

libby said...

Marcheline, I bow to your sagacity, and you are entirely right.
Sensibilia, oh dear...words this evening eh? just try to find a balance...spend a bit, save a bit perhaps?

In my youth, I never, ever thought I would look forward to retirement but I so do! Unfortunately it's a good few years away so I keep buying the lottery tickets!

Not everyone can be artists or heart surgeons. I recall a song by Jackson Browne...
"I'm going to rent myself a house
In the shade of the freeway
I'm going to pack my lunch in the morning
And go to work each day
And when the evening rolls around
I'll go on home and lay my body down
And when the morning light comes streaming in
I'll get up and do it again
Amen"
There's a genuine nobility in such an attitude and you should be proud of yourself for your application. As I say, not all of us can be artists or heart surgeons. The bottom line is that the bills must be paid.

Ah.....the happy idiot....I love that album and still have it, and thank you for such kind words YP. Yet my ship of dreams hasn't sailed, I swam out to meet it....I only ever yearned to be loved and have children, and in that respect I am blessed beyond measure. I just know that because there was never anything I wanted to do as a career, I have done nothing as a career and I regret that now.

sensibilia said...

Well not many people achieve their heart's desire, no matter what it is, so the fact that you have, in such an important way, surely compensates for almost anything!

CQ..just bought my ticket for tonight..cross everything!
Sensibilia...yes, I count my blessings every single day.
