I hate wasting my time.
It’s a pet peeve. Just ask my kids. The two main lines they knew not to cross were:
- don’t disrespect my wife (their mother)
- don’t waste my time.
I’m not saying all of the time with my kids had to be focused and serious. Of course not. Spending an hour having imaginary tea with my daughter or spending countless hours with my son at the ball field is absolutely NOT wasting time. It’s what time is for.
But, fooling around when they’re helping with chores? Wasting my time. Making me run to Walmart at 12 AM because they realized they needed to write a paper that is due the next day and didn’t think to check if we had printer ink? Wasting my time.
So, to find out the podcast we recorded last night had to be scrapped due to a microphone issue, well, to say I was happy about that would be an understatement.
Now we’ll have to re-record. More wasted time. Well, not totally wasted, as I think they have value and people seem to enjoy them. But, you know what I mean.
Anyway, that’s my vent for today. I feel better.
Time well spent. 🙂
