When I talk to my tired daughters-in-law who are dealing with little ones I often repeat the wisdom of the ages that with children in the house "the days are long but the years are short". And I have come to realize that this saying really applies to all of life, not only raising children. At least at certain times in life.
And this is one of them.
My days are very busy right now and they are flying by. I know I'm going to turn round and suddenly it's going to be February.
Today I hope to finish the decorating inside the house, but I have to squeeze it in between my meetings and rehearsals, and squad duty tonight. Yikes.
Yes, the days are long, but they really do pass quickly when we're busy. Mine certainly are.
