Monday Madness

Ahh, the weekend. Over already. Why is time going so much faster this year?

Last night at community group (our church’s version of small group, Bible study, what have you) someone said (regarding it being April) “I’ve really lost my grip on this year.”

I hear ya, man. It’s going by too dang fast.

Whether we do a lot each week, or spend too much time watching tv, it still feels crazy.

Yesterday I cleaned the house for community group, walked around the neighborhood twice with the baby, finished crocheting a set of these hats for an Etsy order, wasted time playing words with friends, and hosted community group. Dave got on the roof and cleaned the gutters, powerwashed the front porch, mowed the lawn, and went for a joy ride in the neighbor’s muscle car. And hosted community group. Oh, and we live-streamed church this morning because Amelia was napping. I know, I know, it’s not the same as going. But at least we heard the sermon.

So that was a busy day.

Other days are slower. Other days are so slow that we find ourselves channel surfing after putting the munchkin to bed and making comments like “Hey look, this is how they make barrels.”  Seriously, the day Dave said that to me, I realized that no one will ever again accuse us of being cool. Watching people on the discovery channel make barrels does NOT count as a hobby. Or being cool. Just two days ago Dave said to me, “Look, this is how they make jelly beans!”  Now that is a hobby I can get behind. Watching people make jelly beans is way more cool than watching them make barrels.

So that’s how our life goes. Crazy busy or crazy boring. But always crazy fast.
