I am Currently... puzzled!

How did September come so fast?

I really think time is speeding up! Really! When I was a kid I NEVER said how fast time went. School always lasted for...EVER! Winter break was always so far away and never seemed to get close enough. Spring break was always too far away to look forward too and forget about being excited for summer, it would never get here.

When summer finally came those three months were the best! Those long summer days, were just that, L...O...N...G... they were wonderful, what summer is supposed to be all about.

My kids, even as small youngin's have never complained that time took too long. They always have said, "I can't believe..." or "It's ________ already!"

Seriously, time is speeding up!

Anywho...here is my September Currently

Thanks Farley for keeping the party going!


"Who did your mother marry, Mr. Rogers? Um, no Mr. Johnson". --The Breakfast Club, enough said!

A good friend of mine moved from a middle school position to a 2nd grade position in a new school. I had so much fun helping her put her room together. 

I am marinating drum sticks in orange, lemon, lime, garlic, onions and oil. I will be a happy girl in about an hour when I sip my margarita and fire up the grill. 

How is it that teenagers don't mind dirt, dust, grime, mold, hair, soap scum, toothpaste residue, water spots and sticky floors. Their bathroom is disgusting, I never go in there because it is so gross. They are 17 and 19, I am not their maid, they have 2 hands and access to every cleaning supply needed to get that room clean, but nope, it just does not happen...ugh!

I have had so many emotional highs and lows this year. Some days I just need a bit more strength to put on that happy face, step into that good mood, and rise above the dread I feel deep in my heart. 

1. I really need to get my butt out of bed and start my walking again in the mornings...I love it so much, but lately I have been loving sleep more :(

2. My mom has metastatic breast cancer and has been afflicted with a few set backs. Time is precious, I don't want to waste it.

3. At the end of the day I need to remind myself that what I did was enough. I need to feel good about what I did and not guilty for what I didn't get to. I am only human after all!

Enjoy your September...and don't be surprised when October comes knocking on your door, because time is speeding up and it will be here in the blink of an eye!! :)

  1. Spending time with your mom is important. Although my mom was in her 80's when she passed, I often wish I had spent more time with her.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your mom's cancer - so sad and tragic. Now you have to be extra vigilant with screenings for yourself. I can understand why this has been an up and down time in your life. I'll be thinking about you.

    1. Thank you so much Susan! Yes, I am very vigilant with myself, because I will not go through what my mom is going through right now.
      Enjoy your weekend!
