Where Does The Time Go?

Have you noticed that days are slipping by like beads off a broken chain? It's Monday and then it's Friday. It's January and then it's December. It's 2000 and then it's 2009.

It seems more is going on than just the clocks changing back and forth each Spring and Fall. Maybe when we mess with daylight savings time, the universe's timekeepers are foolin' with us too.

Years ago a friend of my mother's used to quip... "Well, it's Monday, the week's almost gone". As kids we'd think that was so funny.

More recently my cousin mentioned that she now suspects someone is stealing weeks from each month. We have the first week and the last week, and somehow the middle two have disappeared (maybe they go where dryer socks go).

Perhaps we should ask for discounts on our Daytimers, because we don't need all those pages for the little binder anymore!

Haha, we're just feeling silly today and we're just foolin' around. But do I hope you will make lots of time to drink tea with your friends, snuggle warm kitties and fat puppies, kiss sweet grand-baby cheeks, and other important stuff like that. The rest won't matter so much in 20 years, which is where we're headed towards in an awful big hurry. My advice? Make the most of those 'two' weeks we have this month!

Happy Day!


  1. I once read that the perceived acceleration of the passing of time is a matter of proportion: the older one is, the smaller any given amount of time is in proportion to the total amount lived, so time seems to go faster as one gets older. I don't know if that's true, you understand, but it sounds good!

  2. I guess it has something to do with that awful aging. But I guess we would not like standing still. I love everything English too and notice we have read some of the same book. I remember Rebecca and Ivanhoe and some of the others you mentioned.
    Have a good weekend.

  3. I love this writing!
    In my point of view, it is because we are too busy with our daily stuff and still, piles of other tasks are waiting..

    Take care and have a wonderful weekend!!

  4. You're funny!
    But I will take your advice and kiss our fat grandbabies cheeks (and more)!
    You have a great day! If you see Orange Kitty, tell her Hi from me!

  5. I love the way you think! ;D

  6. You ladies make my day beautiful. It's so much fun to touch hearts with you and I appreciate you leaving a footprint in my world!

    Yes, Christine, I will pass along the purry greetings. She came for a visit yesterday and the day before. Her family was away (work and school) and she seems to search for company when the house is empty. She now wears a collar with ID, but hopefully she'll never wander that far again, so as to 'need' it.

  7. how about skinny grandchildren's cheeks-do they count also? I found a way to slow down things-get sick. I have a head cold and the nights trying to sleep last forever...

  8. Oh yes, Lin, skinny cheeks too! And I wish you a speedy recovery.

    Hey, JonJon... nice to 'see' you!!
