Iíve often noticed that the phrase ďfeast or famineĒ is quite true when it comes to my life. Either nothing happens, or everything happens at once. Sometimes, like in the past few months, itís having multiple health issues hit simultaneously. Other times, it will be something as simple as having four shows that I want to see that end up being on at the same night and time. Or Iíll get a phone call and while Iím talking to someone on my landline, my cellphone will ring. Online, some nights Iím in chat alone while on other nights, I can barely keep up with the multiple conversations.
There are some days that seem longer than others with a light workload. Then I get a day like tonight, where Iíll be working until midnight. To add insult to injury, there are all sorts of fun genealogy things that arrived this week, but Iíve barely had time to glance at them. Where were they on one of my slow days?
What makes life like this? Why canít we have perfectly balanced days, where there is just the right amount of work to fill the day while still leaving some time to relax? Why canít that new interesting documentary be on tomorrow, when there is nothing on television, instead of against another good science show?
I donít know. I guess Iíll continue to grumble about it while throwing the DVD in the burner to record the show that Iím missing while Iím watching another one. As for the landline/cellphone problem? Thatís easy. The cellphone gets turned off!
Hereís to the weekend and a chance to relax.
