Daily Prompt: Pace Oddity
It’s Thursday afternoon which means we are pretty much knocking on the door of FRIDAY!!
I have been cheating with my blogging lately. Yes, I have been trying to do a lot of the Daily Prompts but I am not giving my blog much love.
I am not sure what my problem is. I have a ton of ideas and thoughts floating around my head just dying to be blogged about but they just won’t flow onto the page when I login to WordPress.
Ok enough rambling, now it is time to Daily Prompt
If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?
I choose both.
The event I would like to slow down would be my kids getting older. I will be the first to admit that when I am DEEP in the trenches of parenting, there are times that I can not wait until the boys are “big” and not asking me to pour them a drink or settle a fight over the Lego sword that belongs to Matt but Lucas borrowed to use on his army battlefield.
However, when I find a picture of the twins when they were 18 months old and realize they will be TEN in June it makes me want to cry.
Where did those 10 years go????
Soon they won’t need their mom to help get something off the high shelf or watch tv with them or take them to the park. They won’t want to go to Target with me for no reason or cuddle in bed with and tell me about their day. Ugh, it breaks my heart.
I know they have to grow up and I need to be happy and excited for them and all that they will experience (I don’t know if I am envious of the middle school years) but it’s still sad.
It’s sad and what’s worse is that you don’t realize it’s happening until it’s over. How does the saying go “the days are long but the years are short”?
On a lighter note, the event that drags on (and on and on) that I would love to speed up would be my work day.
While I am thankful to have a job and work for a great company, there are MANY days that just s-l-o-w-l-y drag on. The days when you think the clock on the computer must not be working since it is clearly NOT moving.
Those are the days you are left sitting at your desk thinking about all the other fun things that you could be doing if you were anyplace other than work.
The mall. The beach. The couch watching tv. A tropical island sipping a pina colada. The list is endless really.
Well that’s all I got for you today. Enjoy your Thursday and thanks for reading 🙂
