Where Does the Time Go?
Has school really been in session for only a month? Is my oldest really 20 years old today? In a blink of an eye, I have gone from naps, bike rides around the neighborhood, legos on the floor to two drivers, one in college, football games with injuries and cross country meets. Instead of a faithful black lab, we now have two cats and probably two more by the end of the week. My husband and I both have Masters degrees, left jobs and have either returned to an old job and contemplating another change. From the one packard bell computer that we bought in 1994 with 4 mb of memory to 3 laptops and 2 desktops with wireless for the laptops. Our living room is now a "media room", but at least we know where our kids are at night. The Red Sox have won the World Series and the Boston Bruins along with the Celtics have become has been teams. Who would have thought? And then there are the Patriots, winning, consistently with a good quarterback. We have two girlfriends in our lives which makes life interesting. (Even if one is a lurker on my blog and should be doing her homework right NOW! Yes, I mean you....)
Somedays I wish I could go back in time to when my three boys were little and the biggest problem was which Winnie the Pooh movie we were going to watch. Just one day to relive those memories. Those were the easiest times of our lives, when the kids were small and all at home. Who said I could have a 20 year old son today? Like I told people at work today, I had him when I was in Junior high.....okay, that's a creepy thought.
Now that some of my free time is spent at Cross Country meets for the youngest and two football games/week for my middle guy who is swinging between varsity and JV, there is less time for blogging. I am still here and trying to get to other blogs. It hasn't been easy but just think of me as the blogging ghost, flitting about the internet when time permits. Now you see me, now you don't. Thank you Google Reader, blog reading has become easier.
On another note, I am not too sure about Payperpost. If you have good or bad experiences, please let me know. I have not received any information as to whether my first two posts were accepted and the one problem that I sent them two weeks ago, has not been addressed. The thoughts I am thinking, are not kind. Any ideas about that folks?
