The Time Space Continuum!

by Pennie on December 20, 2012

Time flies.  Everyone’s heard it and probably said it at one time or another.  But this month (and this year) have really flown by.  It is now officially 5 days until Christmas and I have bought just 3 presents.  THREE!  That’s one each for my daughter, my son-in-law and my grandson.

I used to be one of those people that some people get really annoyed with.  You know the ones.  They start shopping early and are done by Thanksgiving.  Then I would take my sweet time to elaborately wrap and or decorate packages.  I produced some pretty gorgeous packages, even if I do say so myself.  It’s always been something that I really enjoyed, but the last few years I haven’t done so much.  And this year, well, if the presents are wrapped at all, I’ll be very surprised!

How did this happen?  Wasn’t Thanksgiving just a few days ago and the election couldn’t have been more than a week ago, right?  That’s how it feels and yet I know it isn’t true.  Not only are the days slipping by but I’ve begun to wonder where the hours are getting to as well.  When I was a kid, I distinctly remember thinking that perhaps people didn’t exist except when they were with me.  After all, if I wasn’t interacting with them, what could they possibly need to exist for?

Now I think maybe the opposite is true; I don’t exist unless I’m interacting with others.  That kind of explains the lack of 24 hours in my days and 7 days in my weeks.  If I’m not here, then time goes by without me!  And if I’m not here, then where am I?  Have I slid into another dimension where I am getting things done, but when I’m back here I just don’t remember that?  I like the idea of that.  That I am slipping from dimension to dimension expertly getting much accomplished!

Well, I just don’t know where all the time is going but I do know one thing that is true.  Another day has escaped me and I really need some sleep.  Maybe if I dream hard enough, when I wake up all my shopping will be done and all my packages will be wrapped and sitting under the tree!

I hope your holiday preparations are going much better than mine!

I feel the same as you. Not much shopping here on my end at the moment and time is ticking on.

I’ve been the same way this yr. It’s 2013 now and I’m hoping this yr goes by slower. I was very blessed to win a huge giveaway at Nicole’s Nickels that helped as far as gifts go. I also won most of my presents in giveaways but wrapping was saved for 3 days til Christmas. I’ve never been this far behind. I think it’s because I’m not getting around as good as I used to.I’m only 48 but due to a back injury,arthritis and neuropathy I haven’t been able to do things myself. Doing everything now is so hard and I don’t like asking for help. But I do reluctantly. Sciatica cause lots of pain in my legs so I can’t stand or walk for long. I just want Christmas to take longer to get here this yr.Lol! I feel so blessed despite being in pain. I’m a cancer survivor and for that I’m thankful.
I love reading your posts and I hope you have a very Happy & Blessed New Year :)
