Slow Down, This is Moving Too Fast
I want one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity
Whitney Houston - "One Moment In Time"
So its been awhile. I've missed you guys dearly. I've had so much to tell you,so much I wanted to say, just no time to do it. Maternity leave is alot different from working right at 50 hours a week. I thought I left busy season behind when I left public accounting, little did I know.
I have noticed now more than ever, that life is short. It seems like I have been living life on fast forward for the past year. I year ago next month, I became a mother for the second time. My youngest child will be one year old soon. It seems like just yesterday I was pregnant with my oldest. It felt like just yesterday I was dropping it like it was hot in Elm City to Luke and Two Live Crew. Where does the time go...
Everyday I come home, eat dinner, not cook dinner, because my better half cooked. I got off too late. I have a million things to do, but never get around to doing them because I fall asleep with the baby and get up at 5:25 am. I can't balance my checkbook, watch everything I have DVRed, cook a good meal, or call and catch up with some folks I miss dearly. Where is my life? I guess I could do any of those things right now, but then I would be gone away from you longer.
Of course i have time to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner with snacks but here is the sad part...I have to fit Weight Watchers in over a lunch meeting and don't seem to have the 15 minutes to get me jelly ass on my elliptical machine I purchased two months ago.
So weigh in...is it just me, or does time march to a different beat when you get older? Or is it responsibilty that puts it on fast forward? Now I think about it, maybe it is correlated with billing cycles...hhhmmmm. What do you think?
Can I possible borrow some of your time? I have seemed to misplace all of mine.
