Is it me or does the time seem to be whizzing by? It's October! Wasn't it just June? I know we are all busy and we have things to do every day, but come on there has to be more than the daily grind. The only reason I even mention this --- now don't start shaking your head when you read this and say to yourself, "Damn, she's right!" I have this stupid pill container, because I can't for the love of --- remember if I take my pills every day (start shaking!) and I'm already refilling the prescription and I could have sworn it was just last week! How can that be? It's been a month already? And then -- now get this -- I only have 7 refills left -- that means its been 5 months since I saw the doctor - NOW I know it hasn't been that long. I was just there - like last month.
Okay, okay, let's all calm down here. We all live busy lives and time slips through our hands. If any of you are like me, you work a full time job, have your activities you do on the weekends and then you have free time (well, that free time thing seems to have gone away for me)....so this is it...right? We get to look back on this and say, "We made a difference?" or "We had fun." or "We were here." or "We were too busy to enjoy it?"
I don't know about you, but today I had to go to the post office, and if any of you are true fans of my blogs you will see that I recently moved. Well, I moved to a little town right on the ocean (pacific - in case you were wondering). The post office has a perfect view and today was a picture perfect day, ocean was unbelievable, the breeze felt just right, the temperature was neither too hot nor too cold. So did I go from the post office to the beach? How silly of you to ask ... of course not! I went to the bank, and then home to make dinner. Because after all, we all know that if dinner gets on the table 30 minutes too late we will never hear the end of it.
Wouldn't it be nice to go back and get that 30 minutes of time back and do it differently?
