5 days

Time is the craziest thing. I've been home for 5 days, the exact amount of time that I was on the road with my SIL. But those 5 days felt like a month. The past 5 days felt like a day and a half. Why is that?

It's odd to me because I feel like I've been running around with my head chopped off trying to get so many things done for the holidays. But when it comes down to it, I haven't accomplished much. However, looking back at those 5 days on the road, it felt like time was standing still, yet we drove all the way across the country and saw so many things.

In the past 5 days at home, all I've accomplished is getting rid of a cold, restocking the fridge & pantry, going to a Christmas party, going to a fantastic holiday tea party, buying a few more Christmas presents, writing and addressing all my Christmas cards and starting the yearly family calendar. I haven't even blogged much since I've been home because I'm scurrying around doing this and that.

I could really use a big glass of sweet tea right now.

Pretty soon you'll be singing "Sunrise, sunset, swiftly fly the years!" :)

I can somehow relate to this post. I've been to 5 holiday parties so far (that was blowing off 2 of them) and have at least 2 more to go! No cards for me this year and behind on shopping. I'm one of those frantically trying to finish on Christmas Eve! I'm amazed at how organized people with kids are and think maybe that's why I'm so disorganized!

I think sometimes things happen in a time-space continuum. I also think that whenever you are rushed and crunched, time seems to disappear.
