Activation Level: Snail Pace.

Meaning my watch. Or maybe I mean my to-do list. I’m not sure what I mean.

You know how the year is just flying by? And the older you get, the faster the year goes? That’s been my experience so far and proof that my mom was right (I only really doubted her about how Christmas would be here before I knew when I was eight).

This post isn’t about Christmas. Or maybe it sort of is. I’m not sure yet since I’m making this up as I go.

Anyhoo, back to time. And how it’s just flying by. It’s like you wake up, it’s May 1st and the kids are getting out of school for summer in a couple weeks, you go to sleep and suddenly you’re smack inside December and there’s a tree standing in your living room.

So time, she’s definitely a flying. Things you’re trying to get accomplished in that time?

For real. Not that I probably have to tell y’all that. Y’all know what I’m talking about. It’s not just writing deadlines, either. It’s everything. We’ve been trying to start building a house since…April? March? It’s already December and we’re in the middle of the financing process (thankfully we got good news recently…so far.).

So maybe my mom wasn’t 100% right. Sure Christmas gets here on super speed, but the anticipation you have as a kid with longing for something you want to happen? That old bat is never going to change.
