I Got, Got, Got, Got No Time

For those who have been around as long as I have, the title of this post should have stirred some memories of The Guess Who's song, No Time, from 1969.  I will state for the record (record...ha ha..get it?) that I was a wee one when this song came out but having brothers who were significantly older, I am familiar with many songs that should have been "before my time."  If you don't know what a record is, then you defnitely won't remember this song.  Google it - I'm too tired to 'splain it Lucy.  Anyhoo...

The title pretty much describes my life these last two days.  I mentioned before that I picked up a job to support my yarn habit and I started it yesterday.  In the last 48 hours, I've only managed to accomplish 24 rounds on my current Christmas sweater.  I've learned that, although when I was in my 20s, working all day did not curb my energy after 6 p.m., now that I am a couple of decades beyond that, my brain pretty much checks out after the work day.  Okay, it really checks out around 2:30 in the afternoon, but don't tell my new boss.  I think I'm feigning intelligence in the afternoon pretty well so far.

I'm really hoping that I will settle in to my new routine and things will become easier in the next few weeks.  So this post is all I could manage this evening, but didn't want anyone to think I'd dropped off the face of the earth.  If I ever do drop off the face of the earth, it will be because my ship came in and I've run off to some tropical island somewhere to lay on the beach and be waited on hand and foot.  For now, my ship is more like a dinghy and I have to go to bed now so I don't fall asleep at my desk tomorrow...  


  1. Jobs and knitting are tough to combine. I've found the only solution is to get a job with a 2 hour train commute, and bring nothing to do except knitting. No matter how tired I am, I'd always rather knit than do nothing.

  2. Oh, if I ever have a big commute, I will definitely do some serious knitting!
