Where does time go?

So I'm in Manic Christie mode decluttering things around here. I came across some older Cd's with pictures on them. I pop them in the computer and I'm brought back to my babies. Time just flies tooooo fast. I'm sorry. It just does.

My baby girl is going to be 7 in a few days! My boy is 5! He is going to be in Kindergarten next year. Ugh! My 11 year old..well, you all know how she's making me feel old.

I found myself contemplating my "career." I know I know...what career. I used to be productive and successful before the babies. Then all of a sudden, I became a good mommy. Go figure.

Lots of changes. Moving...kids getting older...self evaluation...constant scale monitoring lol...what's a girl to do. Life just happens.

Finally...I was in bed last night thinking. Do you all have that one moment in your life when things could have changed. That one decision you made. That one moment when if you said yes or no...life would have been completely different? Hmmm...I think too much, huh? It's all the sorting I'm doing. It happens every single time. I sort stuff..and sort my life.
Ok...rambling...I know.

Yeah, I can put my finger on that day. Sux for me cause I don't think it was a good one. It was but it wasn't. Ya know? Sigh.

Oh, my gosh I definitely have one of those moments that I wish I would have given the other answer than the one I did give. Ahhh, how different my life would be.

I can't really say that I've had one of those moments because if things hadn't happened to me in my life when they did and the way they did, I don't think I would be where I am now. And to not be here (where I am and who I am NOW) would be a tradegy.

Yeah I know, too many where's and here's and did's, but I hope you get my point.

But I still so get the thinking too much..I do it all the time....

ThoughtsGalore said...

I soooo get it. That's me, too. I like who and where I am right now, but the sorting...memories...they just get to me.

I'm a feeler.

Darlene...I'm getting excited. You gave me great info. Thank you.

Oh i have had those moments and let me just say if my mind starts thinkign too much I have to take something cause I have given myself a headache.

Ah...THAT moment! Funny what triggers remembering THAT moment. I sometimes wonder but not long for what might have been. I'm where I want to be but just to wonder is kind of fun, too!

Good luck with the move, the beach sounds fantastic!

You sound more upbeat, I'm glad to hear it! :)
