How Can Time Fly So Fast…When It Used To Crawl So Slow?

Yes, once again, I forgot.  I forgot I had a blog!  Most days, my brain tells me, “Girl, you are a teenager!  You’re not an old adult!”

Then I realize that for the second time…I forgot I had a blog!

Yeah, life gets in the way of things, doesn’t it?  And it goes by so fast and before you know it…a year has gone by!  Or two.  Or 10!  When did time speed up?  I swear, when I was a kid, time went sooooo sloooowwwwllllyyyy.  Waiting for 3:15 for the school day to end.

Waiting for June for summer to come along.

Waiting for the holidays.

Birthdays.

And even waiting for school to start back up in the fall.

It seemed to take forEVER for occasions to come along!  But now?  Bam!  Back to school!  Thanksgiving!  Christmas!  New Years!  Birthdays!  School’s out! Back to school! And so on, and so on.  Before I have time to catch my breath from one thing, another has already shot past me.

When did waiting for something to come along switch over to being shocked it already happened?  Was it when I got my first job and realized there were no more summer vacations?  Or was it when I had kids and it was all about planning things for them?  Is there some magic age when this just happens?

I don’t like it.

But I wonder…when I get even older, and the kids have grown and gone…will I once again be watching the clock and the calendar, waiting for the phone call or the visit?  The holidays, when we are all together again?

I don’t think I’ll like that, either.  And that’s Food For Thought.
