Time to pretend I have more time than I actually have to do the things I need/want to do!

I have been taking an aqua areobics class on Saturday mornings, and while this morning (in the wee part of the morning time between when my son decided to jump on the bed and wake us up and when I actually got up after trying to get him to go "play quietly in your room") I did have one pang of "oh, just stay in nice warm bed, skip class", I actually have found the class very invigorating. Kinda wierd, but invigorating. The wierd part is that its with mostly women significantly OLDER than I am...and they sometimes sing to the tunes being played....hmmm...something about Old Ladies working out in the water to "Y-M-C-A!" just is W-I-E-R-D....

Now I await my brood, who after I told them I had a lunch date and could they please do the groceries while I was gone (which they volunteered to do), they procrastinated until now...scarily enough giving me TIME TO MYSELF!! (WOW!!!)

Chaos - the stuff of life.

Already the middle of the month, and I am unsure whether to be thankful that winter is almost done or worried that the year is going by so quickly...

The winter in New England has been somewhat rough (3 feet in one blizzard), but for us, not so bad. Projects I completed during the winter do not make a dent in the list I have, but when is that ever the truth?

I have been thinking about why the time seems to go so much faster the older I get, and I think part of it is the general chaos that is life. There is always so much to do, so much stuff that HAS to be done, and by the end of the day, there is often no time to actually reflect on matters. I think that sometimes I spend too much time on the processes of life rather than enjoying it.

Mini-Vacation - Connecticut

We needed a break from the norm...Michael wanted to go visit the Peabody Yale Museum again...and, well, Chewy was feeling a tad overwhelmed...
