Wasting Time

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

I don't think I waste much time, after all, time enjoyed is not really wasted. Let me clarify a little. My husband and I are on different work schedules. We try to get in active dates but there is also time when that's not possible or we do something together that the other enjoys. For him that's wrestling and football. Monday nights are pretty much dedicated to WWE Raw. We take this time together to watch, yell at the TV, laugh, talk about our day and give one another a rub down on achy body parts. Football games (usually sunday afternoons) are spent me reading and listening to him yell, clap and all that other stuff men do while the game is on but we are together in the room and sometimes that's enough.

Other time that's "wasted" is trying to get away from the grandkids. My daughter and her boyfriend also work different shifts and are currently sharing a car. To help them out I am providing her a way home from work. It was supposed to be pick up -drop off ..badda bing badda boom- done. No such luck. So by the time I finally get home I'm exhausted and still have to fix dinner, do whatever chores and work in activity time. Guess what's not getting done.

Ideas I've had to help with that situation is easier/quicker dinners and trying to get more chores done on the weekend. Any suggestions? This "cab service" is supposed to be only temporary. It's been at least a month now and I'm going to HAVE to limit them to another month at the most. I can't do this forever. I feel bad about it but I just can't. He is going to have to do something. By the way, they are sharing HER car.

I am also considering giving up a job. I have three total (not counting wife-mother-cab service), one full time and two part time. I am weighing what is most important to me....the money or the time.

    I would much rather have the time. I like having the extra little bit of money. I'm thinking after the holidays I will probably give it up. I'll just have to tighten up my purse strings and not buy every purse I fall in love with.

    Do you need the money? Or would you rather have the time?
