I’ve officially entered the summer time warp. Not familiar with the warp? It’s that weird bending in the space-time continuum that happens to me every summer. One minute the summer is stretching on like an endless and vast ocean with no land in sight. The next minute it’s OVER. DONE. And it feels like fall is just around the corner. I know…you’re wondering why this natural phenomena of time passing is being called a time warp. It’s because this jump between endless and over isn’t linear. I bounce back and forth between the two over and over again. Here are some examples…
*FAST! When planning ahead to do weekend get togethers with friends and family–I find myself saying, “I’m sorry, but we’re already booked into November. *head thunk*
*S-L-O-W When I’m trying to write and the three boys are staring at me and saying they are bored.
*FAST! When I think about how much time I need to clean my house, do my last year’s fall yard clean-up in addition to this year’s spring clean-up while getting a jump on the coming fall clean up.
*S-L-O-W When I’m waiting for my garden to produce tomatoes. *yum*
*FAST! When I think about all the things I have to do to get ready for a book launch.
*S-L-O-W When I think about the moment I can hold my book in my hand for the first time.
*FAST! When I’m eating an ice cream cone.
*S-L-O-W When I’m eating healthy and trying to get in shape.
*FAST! When I’m on my family vacation. (I already know it’s going to fly by *sob*)
*S-L-O-W When I’m packing and unpacking.
I think you get the idea LOL! It’s the summer TIME WARP!!! Are you a victim of the warp??? What’s your fast and best parts of your summer? What’s your slow and yucky parts?
