Why is time passing by so fast?

Mushrooms from our local market.

As we get older time does seem to just disappear faster than in our earlier years. Having Monday as a holiday here, many of us feel the week was just too short. Here it is, Friday evening and tomorrow is our trip to local farmers markets to get our supplies for the week. How did time get away from us? Funny how that seems to happen.

@lucky15 we've had a sunny few days, but we never know when rain will blow in.

@PatZAnthony We aren't having too much rain right now, but we were in a drought a few years ago that was bad, so as much as I like sun, I'm happy to see an occasional rain.

like I commented to someone else on my last post, time and I just don't get along anymore. It's going way too fast.

I know, time flies away as you get older.

When time passes quickly it is an indication that one is busy with chores that are interesting.

YOu want time to slow down? Work for a Boss from Hell. You look at the clock, it is 10:34. You look back 3 hours later, it is 10:56.

@PatZAnthony a year ago It was like a week between 8:30 and 4:30. Time never moved so slowly... ever. I mean for 4 o'clock to come was like what a week is now.

I once read that something changes in our metabolism at about age 30 and after that, time seems to accelerate. It is at warp speed at my age.

We have a friend who decided she had it all figured out at around age 84. She said it is b/c we are going down the hill and that is always faster.

I thinks it's because we have experienced so many days they begin to run together. You know when you drive someplace you haven't been before and it seems to take forever, but driving back seems to take less time.

Yes, I agree - time seems to slip by much faster now. I hope you enjoy your trip to the farmers' market.

It is always fun to visit with local growers and buy some of their fresh goodies.

I fully agree, I cannot believe how fast the time flies. Last Thursday it was a holiday here, I have not seen the week pass.

It amazes me how fast time is moving the older we get. Today feels like Wednesday but no, the weekend is here. Just for fun I looked it up. There are thousands of stories on the net about aging. I guess its not just you and I...

It is odd, when we're young the time drags, but when we're older the time flies by. Would be nice if it was reversed.

It shows you are keeping busy yourself.
