It's December. Now how did THAT happen? lol

Ok so it's December 1st, 2009.  Wasn't it just January?  Come to think of it...wasn't it just 1995...about two years ago?  The older I get, the faster time goes by.  As my father always says, "Tempus certainly does fugit!"  They say time flies when you're having fun, but I don't remember having THAT much fun! So how does this happen?  How do you go from being a young girl without a care in the world one moment to a 47 year old mother of a college girl and a homeschooled 10 y/o son the next?  As Lucy used to say, "Whahappen?" So Christmas must be around 2 oclock today and 2010 is probably being held on Friday!  Are you ready? I'm not!  But I did spend a few millennia yesterday evening creating a really adorable CHRISTmas gift for all our newsletter subscribers and Facebook Fans.  It's called "God is Everywhere."   I will be unveiling it in about a week so, if you are not a subscriber or a fan club member, go directly to Sign Up or become a FAN!  Do not pass go!  Do not collect $200! How fast does time fly for you?  Here's a little quiz to help you along: What year were you born-if you care to answer? (JoJo was born in 1962.) What year were you married? (1987   That used to sound like 10 yrs ago!) How old are your kids? (19 and 10) How old were they yesterday? (15 and 6) How old will they be tomorrow? (40 and 31) I now return you to your life in progress...QUICK!  You might miss something!

    And for so many, Cindy. It was a odd year for us. A very bad year in some areas and very good in others.

    Caitlyn, I have done that many times!

    Amy, thanks for posting your answers to my silly questions. You really got into the spirit. lol

    Thanks to all. I love reading the responses!

    I was born in 1965
    We were married in 1984
    Our children are 19, 17, 14 next week and, 11 the week after that! And the week after that the oldest will be a grumpy old man with a big round belly(because he usually does what he sets out to do), the middle son will be a happily married well known inventor who complains about everything, our youngest son will still be humming and tapping(although I am sure he will also be an inventor of toys and games or a missionary or all of the above) and our daughter(though she still claims she will be a veterinarian)will have a dozen children and homeschool them all!
    And where will I be?

    The other day I was trying to figure out when a book was written. I guessed 5o years ago before finding out that it was written in 1948. I yelled “Oh! I was right!” before realizing that 1948 was OVER SIXTY years ago!!! Where on earth does the time go?

    I know exactly what you mean. Did this year ever happen? It was a bad year for us – so I’m glad to see it end and on to 2010 really quick!!

    I was born in 1961
    We were married in 1981
    My children are 22 and 18
    They were 10 and 6 yesterday
    Tomorrow they will be parents and I will be a Grandma

    I better get back to this day and week or I’m going to miss something important too!!
