Friday Shuffle - The Hurrider I Go The Behinder I Get Edition
Do you remember when you were a child and it seemed like forever before it would be Christmas or your birthday or summer vacation would start? I remember even a single day seeming to go on and on if something special were happening that evening. Now the days go by and it's almost as if I'm going through life in fast-forward.
My sister called me this afternoon nearly in a panic because I hadn't called her since we had our respective birthdays in January. Yikes! We'd sent some quick emails here and there but otherwise we'd been out of touch for over two months. It was never on purpose. We have a seven hour time difference between us and it contributes to the problem but mostly the days simply get away from us.
I can get up every morning with the best of intentions to accomplish this or that task before the end of the day and invariably something will be missed. Either the kitchen floor won't get mopped or I won't have a chance to get to the bank to get some cash or the backed up email won't get answered. The blogs I subscribe to won't get read or commented on and my mountain of laundry seemingly doubles overnight.
All this is to say that if I owe you an email or I haven't been around your blog lately to contribute a comment or if I've said I'll call you and I haven't, it's not an intentional snub. Not that it's an excuse but at least you can take comfort in the fact that I'm pretty much snubbing everyone. At least I'm not paying more attention to my laundry than I am to you. And have faith that I'll get caught up.
