The entire month of January 2015 has come and gone. We’re officially 34 days into 2015.
I’m sitting here reflecting on the number of days that are gone in 2015 and I’m asking myself tons of questions.
I wonder where the time went. I’m increasingly amazed at how fast time seems to go by as an adult. I vaguely remember being a kid and thinking things were so slow. Early in my adulthood (think undergrad), I recall thinking that time had a reasonable pace. Now though, ha! It’s sometimes like time is playing a joke. A non-stop joke that goes something like this.
Look, here’s a new day, the sun is shining, it’s bright and sunny! 24 hours is a long time! You’ll be able to start this or that project. You’ll be able to go outside and play with Baby Boy. You can do some reading. The house won’t look like a disaster area when Hun gets home. You can lay down and relax with Baby Boy for a bit in the afternoon. There’s all this time for you to do all these things.
And then reality sets in. Monkey Boy may or may not be cooperative the entire 24 hours. Or more likely, he’s cooperative at times and at others more disruptive than seems possible for a 28lb person.
I may or may not focus on one activity long enough to complete it (see aforementioned toddler).
Those social media and blogging tasks I wrote down, yeah they took longer than expected.
Dinner preparation was a bit rushed, despite planning for it.
The house still looks like a disaster when Hun walks in the door.
I didn’t read even a page in a book.
That tea, yeah it’s been sitting there for the last 3 hours, untouched.
Yet somehow, it was a good day. Probably because I ended up smooshed!
Time can be so elusive. Just about every day we’re fooled by time. I wonder why that is?
Anyway, enough with the time talk. Let’s do talk about what happened in the first 30 days of 2015.
Well of course, we rang in the New Year.
I finished a pair of crocheted socks with this beautiful yarn.
I’ve spent some time working on another project and have completed some of the design.
Monkey Boy turned 21 months! And he just keeps going. Every day, all day, running, playing, talking and otherwise being busy.
The blog was re-launched with a new design.
I wonder how things have gone for you so far? If you’ve set resolutions, have you mostly stuck to them? If you picked a word for the year to focus on, how has that gone? Did you have any specific goals for January?
