|My mama has this cross stitch in her room - my version|
This vacation week with Pokey has flown by and yet, the time away from the girls has crawled. Why is that? Why couldn't it have been reversed? I would not have minded our vacation week together to crawl slower than molasses while the time that girls are gone just zips on by at the speed of light. Time, you are such a fickle thing.
Today is technically Pokey's weekend - it's his Saturday to be precise. That means that the day after tomorrow, everyone else's Friday, will actually be his Monday and he'll be back to work... and I'll be back to spending the majority of my day alone doing that which I tell others not to do - wish my life away.
I'll be wishing that Pokey were home. I'll be wishing the girls were home. Then I'll be wishing for Christmas holidays because that is when I'll be able to see Peanut again... just sitting around wishing my life away. I always tell others to go out and enjoy that moment that is today - make a memory and not sit around missing things while wishing for others. It always sounds so profound and insightful when I do it... now, since it applies to me, it just sounds annoying. I'm making a mental note to never say those things again.
|Any guesses? No? Good!|
You know what... even though my brain may be wishing time away, at least my body will be busy and if my body is busy then time will go faster so in essence, my wish will come true. Wow - hello there Silver Lining - how have you been? So nice to see you again.
