Where Did The Time Go?

Have you ever stopped and thought about here it is the last day of August already. Many of us might feel like this month just got started, and we wish we could have had more time to get things done. I know I have been this way many times, and it has been a Super busy month for me, and will be busy the next couple of days. But I have been able to meet one of the Goals I set for myself in here, and that is Good. Might meet the other one if I get time to post in here later. But will not beat myself up if I don't. I truly appreciate everyone's support over the last month, and let's wish for the Best in September as well. ~~TINA~~

time really flies so fast these days. it seems that December had just passed and we are into the 'ber' months again. Sometimes i can't help pondering that life is really too short that before we realize it, it's now end of the journey hence we should try to value and make the most out of every moment God has given us here on earth.

Personally it is so true that life is too short, and we are never guaranteed tomorrow so it is Best to always be working on our Goals and dreams today. We cannot sit idle and just watch time pass us by. We need to take time to think and ponder and reflect on what life is and how God really wants our life to be.

In the UK we seem to try and cram everything into the one month, so it does fly past, so busy doing things or getting ready to do things there's hardly time to breathe. We have to make use of any good weather we get, it's already turing autumnal, the sun is not so warm as even a couple of weeks ago. Don;t blink or it'll be christmas :)

I heard the weather in Canada can be so cold , -10 C many days , it's impossible to get used to it. No wonder you can do all the things only at August , when it's warm. But , isn't there any way to still be able to do things at the cold weather ? If you find a way , you can have a lot more time and August won't be so tight with time.

Well, it is true that a lot of the time you do find yourself when you can trying to cram everything into one and then feeling exhausted just because you forget to take time to relax for yourself. Even in the winter months no matter where you live there are things to do and get done. Maybe just not the outdoor things but I know there are always things here. And I know don't blink or it will be Christmas as it comes faster and faster every yr.

Great, you met a goal, that is wonderful... As for the other one, yep, don't beat yourself up over it, goals are not meant to be written in stone, but rather a guidelines to follow. For example I thought within 2 if not 3 weeks after my winter quarter I would have finished revising my book, and it was my goal. Instead, here it is, spring came and left and summer is almost gone and I am 100 pages short of finishing..I think I can get it done before the next semester though, because now I will have a copyright on my work and I have a couple friends reading it, helping em to find mistakes or places I am not clear about. I already have the first 10 chapters done on that part, so the time may be soon when I start getting active in publishing it..:)

Well, right now here we are in October. I have a couple of Goals and dreams I would Love to see accomplished by the end of the yr. One is regarding my Health, but only god and time is to tell. Here's hoping you have about gotten this Book closer to being finished, and Good things can continue to happen from here.

I am suppose to be writing my synopsis now, but I am getting lazy and really should just write it. Once it is written, I can worry about good it is later. I do have the first sentence and was told it is a good hook, so why I am not moving on, I don't know...I do know that I want it done by November so I can get involved in that writing contest..

I know, the time has gone by super quickly. Unfortunately for me I haven't got as many things done as I would like but I think that was more a case of unrealistic planning. But more that the things i've done this month I value the person that I've been able to spend most of August with on what has been a really really good holiday. It'll be September soon, I see that as a new opportunity, another chance to make the most of a month and spend it the way I want to.

For most of us , August is the same as every other month. Only children who go to school has August as a holiday , they don't have homework to do. So do teachers. Who is the person you have been with during August ?

Well for me, August is always a great month, as I always get to celebrate turning another yr older and also can usually do things with the women from my church as well.

I hate to see summer come to a close! I hate winter and it seems like I am cold all of the time. Maybe that's why it seems to go so fast. We really only have 2 months of summer, so that probably has something to do with it also. I hope September is better for you and your wound issues!

Well, I am responding back on the last day of Summer, so you can now ask where did the time go? But as cold as it is now in our house just compared to a week or so ago, it makes you know cooler weather is here to stay.

Too much going on, and things still are not getting any better. Wonder what it will take to ever slow things down, and for things to get better, and how long would it ever take?

Hi KrauseHome, I agree with you, the time goes very fast and it's hard to believe that it's the end of August.We have had a beautiful summer here and September is usually a good month as well, not hot but warm. The children return to school next week and for most people,vacation time is over. Blessings.

Well now we are into October and the days here are still pretty warm. Just never enough time to get everything done.

I know, August went crazy fast. My daughter started school much earlier this year - in mid-August - so it was a short summer vacation for her. And once school starts, we're always on the go go go - so from day to evening to the next day, it goes way too fast. Yes, let's hope we all have a good September (can things slow down a bit then, pleeeeeeeeeeese????)!!

Well we now are on to our second week in October already and still wishing somehow things could slow down. I can understand the go go go and busy as with my medical apts and working full time I never seem to have enough time to myself. I really just need a day to sleep relax and catch up. Might have that sometime next month.

There were some things that I wanted to get finished before the end of August. However, that didn't happen. So, that will mess with the time frame for some other stuff for later in the year. I do know where the time went, though. The cats ate it...

Hi there KrauseHome. Time flies as they say and now September is fast approaching. I'd have to say that there are some things that I wish I could have had more time doing in August and also wished that not too many heavy rains invaded our place. It just felt like I could have done more especially with an event that I helped prepare a couple of weeks ago. This month was a really busy and stressful one for me and I wish that I could have panned out my schedule in such a way that I would have done more and had more time for myself. Anyway, there's always a next month and I can't wait to start anew and begin doing things that I have planned and set out to do for this month. Enjoy and good wishes on September.

Well, here it is now October and another month to celebrate in. Lately due to having medical issues I am trying too and needing to take care of, I do not have time to come in here like I wish time just continues to slip away. But god is good even now.

I feel that way exactly, too! I feel like time passes too quickly and my infinite to do list gets longer and longer.. I feel like I haven't DONE anything this summer - and although it has been uneventful it still has flown by! And I'm not ready for snow.

Well, we are just starting to really cool down here after a wonderfully warm August and most of September. Believe it or not, Seattle area is hurting for rain even now. Time has passed way to quickly and now we are getting ready to head into October. Wishing sometimes there was a way to slow time down.

Tina I was thinking the same thing when I realized that September was just around the corner. Time flies more quickly the older you get! I just turned 55, was going to say I celebrated but that would be lying! I have much to do before the snow flies. Ugh, wish it would slow down. I do enjoy warmer weather!

I agree that it has flown by. My son is having surgery the end of September and there is so much for us to get taken care of before he goes in, and it is just going so fast. He turned 18 and since he is disabled there is so much that needs done, just for that reason.

It is amazing that summer raced by. I had intentions of getting much more done then I did....but considering my whole summer got turned outside down with my DIL suddenly wanting a divorce.....that turned into a whole bunch of things I didn't plan on doing like selling our camper....helping my son move and get settled....just to name a few.
