Day 250 or Where Does the Time Go?

Did you think I fell off the face of the Earth? Blogging aliens scooped me up and performed their blogging experiments on me? Well, technology did play a part in my disappearance. My laptop has gone haywire and what little time it has been functioning, I have spent frantically typing my schoolwork, hoping to beat the internal ding that the computer must hear that causes it to shut down.

Maybe you thought my funk re-established itself and I am happy to report that is not the case though I have felt a bit at a loss for time. It's ironic that just when you want time to slow down, it seems to spin at an ever-increasing speed. My son is closing in on the end of his kindergarten year. It seems yesterday that I posted his first day of school photo on Facebook and now I am busy planning the End-of-Year festivities. So "where does the time go?" has a second level of meaning to me. Each day that speeds by is a day of my children's lives speeding by.

I am really happy, to share with you that this is not the only reason that I have been busy. I have been packing. Packing? What are you packing for? SOOOO glad that you asked. I am going on a cruise. Yes! Yours truly is leaving on a cruise. I have never been on a cruise before and I am HUGELY excited. My best friend of 30 years, my mom, and her mom will be sailing the mighty seas to Mexico for five long days and four lovely nights!!!! (I have also been doing all the things that a mom has to do before she leaves her husband --the children's father-- in charge for five days. By the way, that is a LOT!)

So I will be away for the rest of this week, as well. But when I get back, I will share some photos and hopefully come back rested, restored, and inspired. I wish you all a wonderful week. I thought about what song to share in my absence. You might think "The Pina Colada Song" because I WILL be drinking those on the cruise but I think that song is crazy. (They are supposed to live happily ever after when they both were prepared to cheat on each other -- WHAT???) So I wanted to share a song that makes me happy, so here it is.

What a Beautiful World

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I'll see you guys next week and to the mothers out there -- "Happy Mother's Day"
