I just looked up and realized that it is July!! 2009!! How the hell did that happen? This month I’ll be 41. I don’t have an issue with being 41 – really and truly. What I don’t understand though is how did I get here? Just yesterday I was 22. How is that as children our concept of time is that it takes forever? Waiting for birthdays and Christmas seemed like an eternity. Now – I blink my eyes and another year has gone by.
I tell my friends with young children – enjoy every minute, every phase and stage. Because once you put those little sweeties into kindergarten time will move at warp speed!! Truly. I know this for an absolute fact. Just last fall, I walked my little guy into kindergarten – and then cried my way to work. And yet somehow, this fall, my little (big, no check that GIANT) guy will be a sophmore in high school and driving! WTF?
Anyhow – depressing as this may seem – I’m not going to let it get me down. I am all about living in the moment; enjoying everything I can. That’s not to say I don’t worry, or am never depressing or pessimistic; or am never angry or frustated. I do and I am. I’m normal (kinda, sorta, maybe?).
I just recently got into reading blogs. I have a few that I follow daily and they have inspired me. But what will I blog about?
This little blog is going to be a development in progress. I really don’t know how to classify it. Will it be about my family? Some. Will it be about me? Eh, maybe a bit. My job? Probably not – unless something seriously funny or enraging happens. Life in general? Definitely. Politics? Not really, I know just enough to be dangerous but not enough to make intelligent arguments. All I know is it seems like something I feel compelled to do – before too much more time elapses.
