2013 Is Going to Be a Short Year????

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

Can August really be going so fast? Can we be over half way through 2013?

My life seems to be whizzing by. My DGD turns 29 tomorrow, her brother will be 24 the next day and better than that, DGD's daughter, Sloan, is now 3 1/2 and it seems only yesterday she was sleeping and eating only.

I did get back into some things I let go after DH passed away. I started watching Charles Stanley on TV and quit going to church. This year I found a church I enjoyed and felt at home in and joined and now I have been blessed. I also shoved myself out the door and joined Senior Center and have made many nice friends. They will have water color classes next week, but I can't go as it is wrong days for me.

My DGGD will be going to kindergarten next year and then, the Good :Lord willing, I will continue with my quilting classes and knitting classes. I m excited about what I have learned so far.

As for my diet, I am still plugging along and one day, it will all come together.

And before long, it will be 2014...hope time slows down some and these years do not become so short!!!

    I think many of us have these sentiments. I look back and things that happened 40 - 50 years ago seem like yesterday! I ask myself quite often .... where did time go? How did I get this old? It doesn't seem possible. And it seems like every year goes by faster and faster .... almost like it's "picking up steam." It sounds like you've made some very positives changes this year! Good for you!!!

    I hear ya Jean. My gd is l4, going on l5 in Jan and gs is ll going on l2 in Nov. I used to babysit them at age 4 months. Where did that time go? I don't know if I will be here for their weddings or not. If gd marries at 24, God willing I will be 90 and who knows if I will be in my right mind. It is so sad that we can not enjoy life longer and see our grandchildren married. Hopefully, I will get to see the confirmations they make at age l6. Life stands still when you have nothing to do and are bored. When we fill our lives with stuff we enjoy, it seems to fly by a lot faster. I am so happy you have started to get back into the swing and enjoy your life. You are one of the best, always remember that, to all of us. emoticon

    Good thoughts Jean. I was having a phone conversation with my best friend in High School yesterday and I mentioned my "boys' are 53 and 48.
She gasped and said, much like you...where does it go. I was just those ages. You did a good job of echoing our thoughts and you have come such a long way in using that time so wisely. You are a good person Jean and I hope the rest of 2013 and all of 2014 slow down a bit. Or that we learn to slow down and smell those roses as the say goes. Well done, my friend.
Hugs,
Lee

    2013 is moving much too fast for me too.
my new grandson is already 3 months old.
and mom , who is living with me while recovering, is doing very well and may be able to go home soon.

Enjoy what is left of the summer and don't fret over missing the water paints because your DGGD should be at the perfect age to teach you all about finger paints.
Just make sure she is wearing her best clothes and her mom isn't around !!!
