WOW, this week went by fast!

Overall, it’s been a great week…if you cut out Monday…yikes.

When I picked up Biggest Brother from school yesterday, he got in the car and said, “Mom (yes, he calls me Mom all the time now), some people at school asked me if I’m adopted (apparently they noticed we don’t have the same skin color), and I said no. Then they asked who you were, so I just told them you’re a friend. Is that okay? I don’t want them to know I’m a foster kid.”

“Yes, that is definitely okay.”

I can’t believe it’s already Friday again! This week has flown by and Christmas will be here before you know it. Then, all of a sudden, it will be 2010, January, a brand new year with spring just around the corner. Why does life speed up as we get older? This is when things should slow down so we can savor every sweet moment, every memory of our kids and loved ones, and all the fun things in life. Why does it go by so fast? Is it because we fill it to over flowing with activities, commitments and appointments? I wish I had been alive in the days when neighbors regularly ‘stopped by’ to say hello. I would invite them in for a glass of sweet tea and we’d talk for an hour. Then I’d say, “well, it’s already 5:00, why don’t you stay for dinner?” They would oblige because, afterall, they don’t have anything else planned. What a lovely time that must have been.

Okay, back to reality. I need to get a shower so we can go to the grocery store, stop by the church, be back at the house by lunch, and clean up the house before getting the boys from school because we have friends coming over for dessert and games tonight….FUN! 🙂 Busy, but fun!

Happy Happy Friday!!!
