It is true... it has been too long since I have written a blog post, yet again. I wish I was as committed as everyone else at keeping this blog up. I really do enjoy sharing my thoughts, experiences, and life on here, I just never have the time!  I know if I made it a part of my daily routine, I would be completely committed to this. 

I am a routine kind of girl. The second I am out of routine, I don't know what to do. I get in a funk and will not be able to get out of it until I get back into my usual daily routine. I know what works for me, and I know what doesn't.  Call me boring, but it is something about me that I don't want to change!

CHANGE.  Growing up, I loved CHANGE.  I think it was because I had such a stable family and lifestyle that whenever something small around me would change I became excited. My favorite thing would be to come home from camp (after a week) and my parents would rearrange the furniture. It was so exciting, it felt like a new house.

CHANGE. Today, I feel very different about change.  Too often, things are changing around me. Just when I get comfortable with or used to something, it changes. For the good or bad. Not that anything is wrong with change, it is just all happening quicker and quicker.  I want time to stand still just for a day... or a week.  I know I am not that old... but it seems the older I get, the quicker the days, weeks, months, years are flying.  SLOW DOWN!  How do I make it slow down?

Last Wednesday and Thursday, Andrew and I went to Austin for a business trip (I got to tag along for the first time!).  Driving through campus, I couldn't help but feel nostalgic about our college years... it felt like just yesterday when we were walking between the buildings to get to the next class. Then I got to thinking...  the freshman that started college the following fall after Andrew graduated (the year I was supposed to graduate) will be graduating this May.  4 YEARS AGO! Could it already have been  that long since we were in college? Okay I know, I took a victory lap and stayed another year... but still, that sure does not feel like four years ago. It feels like it was just a few days ago... just yesterday!  I can't believe our ten year high school reunion is coming up in less than two years.  HAS IT ALREADY BEEN eight years since highschool?  I want to go back and be a kid again with out any responsibilities (besides making my bed, brushing my teeth, helping out around the house and school). Now I have a mortgage, a job, no spring break... I could keep going but I wouldn't want to bore you anymore than I already have.  Yes, there are a lot of great things that have come with change as well:  An amazing husband who I love very dearly, a perfect house, many new family members including two beautiful nieces!  The problem is... they are growing too quick.

How do I make time slow down?
