For the sake of one last post in the year 2010, I am finally posting something. Does anyone else feel like the older you get, the busier the holidays are and the more difficult they are to enjoy? The days and weeks fly by and I am left feeling rushed and out of breath with everything that I am trying to keep up with. Sometimes I miss the days when Christmas seemed like forever away, and I would look forward to the advent each day leading up to it. Such simpler times. Now I am constantly saying, "It can't be December already...not our party already...not time to do Christmas shopping already...send out cards? What? Already?!?" And then it is suddenly here and gone and the very high-speed countdown begins for next year. I sometimes wonder if I will ever enjoy it again. Maybe once I'm done with school? Or is this my new reality?
In conclusion, time goes by too fast when you're a grown-up. Make it slow down please!
