I've solved the problem as to why time seems to be flying by! It was a simple deduction! "Living on the flip side of 50", one gets slower, and slower, and s l o w e r....... which means you get less done in the same amount of time you did before 50! Our Christmas lists haven't changed - but we have physically! I expect myself to get to the bottom of the same list in the same amount of time I always did - and that's impossible when you're moving at a slower pace and working on the same list! I've been measuring the length of my days by what I want to get done in a day, therefore time seems to be passing too quickly!
Well- the decorating is done, and the shopping is finished , and most of the baking - so I've also concluded that three out of 5 items on my Christmas list isn't too bad when I considered there is still nine more working days til Christmas! One thing I've found for sure - the post office is moving slower than I am! I sent a package to Pam in Australia - priority mail almost 2 weeks ago, and it still didn't get there! I'd like to know whose priority the post office is working on!
PS: This is the extent of my decorating this year - our 2011"grandpop" tree (as my kids call it) is the old fashioned kind their grandfather used to put up each year - a Frasier Fir I believe.
