The days certainly seem to pass faster as you get older and I think I have figured out why. One is mathematical and one is practical. Mathematical reason – when you are 5 years old waiting for Christmas to come again, it is literally 1/5 of your life until it’s Christmas again. When you’re 42, it’s only 1/42 of your life, so proportionally, each year actually does become a smaller and smaller portion of the life you have lived so far. Practically, as you get older, there is SO much more to do and worry about. I mean as far as a ten year is concerned, toilet paper, food, clean clothes and the like are things that just appear.
So since I’ve become a world traveler, I’m much more open to the idea of going places on the weekend and this weekend is no exception. This weekend I’m going camping with Bailey and my friend Jenny and 2 of her 3 kids. And by camping, I mean real camping, no electricity, camp fire, the whole nine yards. And somehow, the weather looks to be perfect and there is a meteor shower this weekend so score!
Since the hobbit house incident the other night, I’ve been pretty good. Now I’m very impatient though to get this house in order- literally and for all of his things to be gone so I can move on. I don’t know how people get divorced and let it drag on forever. I realized yesterday it’s been over 3 months since we broke up. Enough is enough already. I’m not going to say that the whole relationship was a waste because at the beginning, we were happy, but I feel like the last couple years were based on things he said when we broke up so please, quit sucking up more of my life. Plus, I really need his stuff gone so I can send the invitations out for the celebratory taco extravaganza on Saturday October 21st. (hint – pencil that day in people)
I love Pinterest and I compulsively save inspirational memes to my phone.
Here are some of the latest and greatest – they are all different ways of saying the same thing – I’m ok. I’m enough. I’m happy. And I am a work in progress. that really likes squirrels.
