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!
