I thought i was finally going to get some good quality guitar-time in the summer months after having spent most of the year stuck behind a desk at work!
But seems like vacation-time is still not an option due to a situation with currently low personell sad.gif

..and when i get home almost all of the day is gone and there's other stuff to take care off.
Upside is that i've got a nice dosage of overtime clocked inn smile.gif So i've been GAS'ing a bit at ebay biggrin.gif

Anyone else up for writing a petition to the worlds governments about adding a few more hours to the day? smile.gif

I'm not working yet, but I can sure say that 5 days of school and parents dragging me to the cabin in the mountains every week can be extremely negative effects for my guitar playing ! smile.gif I would sign the petition as well, if under 18's are allowed ! biggrin.gif

Same here Trond. I need more time for practicing. I come home late from work and try to sit down at least an hour, but mostly i am tired and it is hard to practice/play in a good way. A petition to the companys is way better. Maybe i have to look for a teleworking company that i can work from my home office smile.gif

I have no words of wisdom here. Life in my house is hectic on a good day. Too much to do, too many demands on my time with work, too little time to do what I most love. I hope you find a balance. I never have.

Cheers!

Actually its the reverse for me, Were not allowed to have overtime, And were expected to "donate" time for free, which is illegal. And I would love overtime for the extra cash! laugh.gif
