Really, is it possible that it is October? Like in, the tenth month of the year? Like, summer is officially over, autumn is already started, and here it is feeling somewhat like winter?! Well, I changed the calendar pages today, started writing October on my letters and checks, and people are proclaiming that it is indeed October so that must be right.
But by golly, this whole year has been going so quickly. And I haven't even been doing anything important, besides raising three kids, running a home, and trying for the wife of the year award (okay, that last part is a lie, but I do try my best...most days). It is truly amazing how you can be so immersed in just the daily aspects of life that the days and months just fly by.
Do you remember when you were a child and you measured time by how many months until school was out, or how many weeks until your birthday, or how many days until Christmas? And the time would just drag on and it seemed to take forever to get where you wanted to be? I can tell you that feeling stops the moment you become an adult. All of a sudden time goes super fast and you want to savor the days before Christmas because there is so much to prepare for. Or you need weeks before a birthday party in order to get it all right. And yet the special day sneaks up on you and it is here before you know it. I really think that there are like separate time zones for adults and kids, where kid's have 24 hours in a day and we adults seem to just have 12 hours. I see no other way to explain it.
Wishing you all a lovely, beautiful, joy filled month of October!
