November is half over?

I awoke this morning to realize that we are now half way through November. What? Was it not Halloween just a few winks ago? I have come to realize that the busier life gets, the quicker it goes by. Life for me has been running non stop. Almost everynight we have some sort of activity, meeting, obligation, class or whatever. Life is going by so fast, that I feel like I blink and it is over.
Well, except for yesterday at church. Our hour long sacrament meeting felt like a 3 hour meeting and I was extremely tired. In defense, the speakers were great, fantastic, I am printing up today President Benson's talk on Pride, but it was a combination of feeling extremely exhausted and handling Shae all by myself. Do you think the Bishop would have minded if I would have layed down on the bench? Is that offensive? I promise not to do it until after the Sacrament. Where's the mercy? I can hear some of you grumble, "You only have 1 kid, what's so hard about that?" You are right! She's not that tough, I just felt like someone slapped my with the tired stick and I was done.
Alas, I find it ironic how 2 weeks flashed by like a lightning bolt and yet, there are still moments in our lives where the world comes utterly to a stop. Why is that? Why can't the sweet things in life come to a slower pace and the sad just fly on by like a comet in the sky? Oh, great, now I am getting poetic. Isaiah must be rubbing off on me! What day is it? Oh yes, Monday! Now that explains this post!
Have a good one!

Thanks for the RSVP.
I like your thoughts on the post. I'm sure after all the anticipation for the party, it's going to be over really quick. Good times seem to go by fast.

I didn't even make it through sacrament. Right in the middle of it, I had Christian screaming, and Mary crying as I dragged them both out into the hall.
The joys of Motherhood.

The talk on pride is one of my favorite talks EVER. It would be a great one to have taught once a year. :)
Anyways, thanks for your thoughts..

Pssst! Sit on the back row. You can give Shae a coloring book, close your eyes and take a cat nap. Well at least it works for dad. ;)

I agree, November is flying by. But I'm looking at the brightside....BRING ON DECEMBER!!! I love Christmas and already have the decorations down from the attic and ready to go. Plus you guys are coming down in a week, my kids are already drawing pictures for Shea.

I know excactly what you are saying. You think it goes fast now, wait until you get old. One minute your are in your 20's and next thing you are 50. I'm not kidding. Treasure the rush, but take a few minutes for yourself. I can pick up Shaeler earlier if it would help for the Twilight party? Availability is fine for Thursday. Do you want me to make changes? Let me know.

I agree. Where has the time gone? And what is up with this warm weather?! Not that I'm complaining, but it just doesn't seem like the holidays are approaching. What are you and your family going to be doing for Thanksgiving? Do you have a lot of family in Utah? I guess I can find out on Friday! Yay!

I am so with you on this. I literally feel like November did not even exist this year! Truly--it has come and gone in the blink of an eye. I hate that. It all goes too fast!
