Day 712: TIME

Okay, bloggers and bloggettes, it’s TIME for me to write a post about TIME and it’s TIME for you to read it, although we’re talking about two different TIMEs, already.

Speaking of different TIMEs, it’s TIME for me to include a song about TIME:

When I woke up this morning, not on TIME for a workday but definitely on TIME for a weekend, “TIME!” from this song (by the Chambers Brothers) for which “TIME!” was an important lyric, was timing in my head. If you have TIME to listen to this extended, live version, you can hear it here or visit there on YourTime, I mean YouTube.  If you don’t have enough TIME for that, the original version which the radio had TIME to play in the 1960’s is timing here on YouTube and playing here at the same time:

Yesterday, I SOMEHOW had enough time to

  1. Get up, get out of bed, check in with my son’s progress doing the same, get ready for work, start up and drive my car, and other TIMEd routines I do all the TIME,
  2. Work out on exercise machines while people and machines tracked my heart and cardiac pacemaker the entire TIME,
  3. Spend TIME at work with medical professionals and patients wanting therapy support,
  4. Take TIME to have a combination of mac & cheese and salad which I took TIME some TIME ago to write about here,
  5. See my son star in a play all about TIME, at the same TIME that other talented teenagers were on stage with him,
  6. Watch comedian Norm MacDonald spend some quality TIME on another Boston-area stage, making those of us who had taken the TIME for humor on a Friday night laugh at his TIMING and his thoughts about cannibalism, Cosby, crankiness, chops, chubbiness, cheese sandwiches, and crying (and those are just the C word topics I can remember, at this TIME).

The entire TIME I worked on that TIME list above

  • the words, every TIME I typed one, were jumping up and down on the screen, often out of my sight, because of recent interface changes WordPress took the TIME to implement without apparently taking the TIME to test whether these changes were actually improvements or approved by their users, forcing me to take more TIME creating this post and
  • this video — about Lester Chambers and the rest of the Chambers Brothers not getting residuals over TIME from “Time Has Come Today” — was playing, TIMEd to start automatically:

If I haven’t taken enough TIME, so far, to explain  well enough to you how much harder it is for me to take the TIME to write my daily post for you today, let me take more TIME, right now:

WordPress, the boss of me right now, yesterday trafficked in changes that make it markedly more difficult and TIME-consuming for me to create a post at this TIME. Whether this requires me and other people taking the TIME to advocate for change here … TIME will tell.

I shall now take the TIME to include photos I took the TIME to take yesterday:

Thanks to my son, Lester Chambers and the Chambers Brothers,  the cardiac rehab peeps from Mount Auburn Hospital, everybody I saw yesterday at work, Kevin from Starbucks, the Arlington Children’s Theater, Declan Keefe, Matt Lundeen, Norm MacDonald, other people who helped with the creation of this post, WordPress (for giving me the opportunity and TIME to work on my patience), and MANY thanks to you, for taking your precious TIME here today.

  1. a wonderful reminder that it’s time
    to go back to bed 🙂

  2. I’m so glad that Aaron has the TIME and talent to make so much out of his high school years, Ann. Wow. What a residual this will pay for him forever. Sorry about the Chambers. That plain sucks. I love that song is still the long and the short of it.

    My WordPress changes have been on my Stats page only, not on any of my Dashboard post-creating interfaces, Ann. Perhaps that is because I write using Mobile, on my iPad with bluetooth keyboard. In any case, I now truly fear WP taking the TIME to tinker with my post creating template, too. No. No. No. Don’t do it. What have they done to your song, Ann? It’s the only thing they can do half right, and they turned it so far wrong … There’s one you can use in a future post.

    • Look What They’ve Done to My Song, Mark! I think I’m finding a good work-around, already, though. Thanks for writing such a good book here, my friend.

    I like the pictures. Some of them look eerily familiar. Maybe its because we work in the same building and walk the same way to go home. Which takes more time than I would like but it helps to notice the surroundings which you make into art. When will the construction end, especially the Emerald Necklace part ?

    • I don’t know when, in time, the construction will end, but I know I always want to make time for you. Thanks for the visit!!

    Thank you for taking the TIME to write this Ann. Love the song that is still playing right now. I’m not technically creative enough to notice much about the changes, just know the blogs that are supposed to show up in my email aren’t there any longer. It’s about TIME someone corrects that oversight before I decide to go back to my “in between” site at Weebley. It was working out better for me, but I didn’t have the TIME to build up the family atmosphere I have found at WP. Well, TIME waits for no one, so if WP decided to play games with us, I’ll stop blogging. It’s beginning to feel more like work TIME now instead of the fun any way.

  5. I hope all the tests went well. That’s a great picture of a garden in the making. Unlike many people I get excited by piles of earth. Great to see your son on a poster.

  6. Aaron is so talented and hard-working. And, I think that he was born with a very unusual heart, too — but unusual in a less worrying way than his mother’s. You’re a very lucky mom.

    I haven’t noticed any changes in WordPress so far. But I did notice that the photos in your blog are larger than usual on my screen.

  7. I liked all of your examples of time, Ann! I am one who knows how to stretch my days to fit a lot into them. I need more time to relax, though. I liked the part about Norm MacDonald and I enjoy his sense of humor. You were lucky to see him and laugh with him, too. Such a diverse list of subjects to have edginess to the humor, too. I like laughing while I think, Ann!

  8. Loved this post, such a great way to review the year while looking at time and all that is going on ~ and you definitely have a lot going on 🙂 One day I hope to say the words “so much time, not much to do but sit and relax…” and I figure for ’15 I’ll be making that happening often. Cheers!

    • I am extremely cheered, Randall, to see you here and to know that you’ll be relaxing more in 2015. Since I admire you so, I shall do my best to follow you, in that healthy and healing resolution.

  9. Thank you for your perfect timing. I have been fully pressed, with no time permitting, by WORDPRESS. Over the past week I wondered this: 1)had WordPress found itself cyberwar synced by hack-time? 2)how much time had it taken me to post a rare post over on my WordPress account? 3)did WordPress have time to read my complaint(s)? … Obviously not, but only TIME will tell.

    I did find that they asked me for money, in an “off-the-wall” and unrelated email…Or is that their way of expressing to their clients, “Time well spent, as they continue to take the time to get at the issue of frustrated folks lost time in their time warp?”

    Time out! Enough about time. Enjoy a blissful weekend, Ann. 🙂

  10. I didn’t have time yesterday .. but I’m here today to say I loved this post!
    Congrats to Aaron … and you too 🙂
