do it now!

I have about 15 things I must get accomplished today. I thought with this whole day light savings thing would work to my advantage this morning, but it really didn't. Instead of getting up early like I wanted, I slept way later and threw my whole day off.

But besides the long list of projects, cleaning, and cooking activities on my agenda, I need to do other things that impact my life and even though they may not get done today, make plans to do so.

Things like writing a hand-written note to someone I love, making homemade strawberry jelly, holiday cookies with the girls in my family, a walk in the park, take a day trip, or that romantic getaway to a far off place....plans like that.

I don't know about you guys, but life seems to be moving quicker than the speed of light.  I can honestly say I hate it.  I wish it would slow down and it makes me sad.  I can't believe I am already 31. Where has the time gone.

Take this day to appreciate what you've got and do things that are important to you!

I totally agree with you. I never even have time to get bored anymore.

I am so with you. I really don't know where the years have flown. I hate that the days pass so quickly. I try to take each moment captive to really live in it and love it. Part of why I quit the job I hated so much. Life is too short for that!

Love the quote, and totally agree. Is there not something we can do to slow time down? The older we get the faster it goes by! Gosh, my grandmother must sneeze and it's the next year! :)

I am very happy that time is moving quickly towards Will's return, but I am not happy that I will NOT get through my todo list before then! Oh well. Haha.
