~ Time ~



After a restful weekend we are back to Monday. Does you realize how fast time goes? I dont remember it going this fast when I was younger. I remember ~waiting~ for Christmas, waiting for Saturday morning cartoons...time didnt seem like it went nearly as fast. So what changed it? What made it start going so fast? I want things to slow down so I can enjoy my fastly fading youth!!! ;))

I read about this phenomenon in a psych class. because, as children, we have experienced less time, it appears to be going slower or lasting longer than it actually does. As we age, we have seen more and take more external stimulus for granted and therefore time appears to pass more quickly. There is a name for this but I can't remember what it was.

you could probably smoke something to make time pass more slowly, but you might find it hard to get things done around the house.

I thought we stayed at 21 LOL. NOT!
Hey pass me one of those muffins in the picture.

I have a theory about that. We start having mini memory losses so time ceases to exist for a second or two and by the end of a week we've lost an hour or so. The older you get, the more you have.

Or not...

...what was I just saying?

I loved the picture. The sad thing is that time does slow down again. The people I visit in nursing homes tell me that time just drags, every minute like an eternity. Be glad your healthy and time is still moving along.

Time is pretty much relative for me. Time at work drags like eternity but time away speeds by like a NASCAR event.

Good Morning
Catch~ Thank You~ You always have such kind words, and that helps more than anything. I do have to rememebr to be more patient with myself, bad days are Ok, and you're right, I have been having some better days in there too. I have no comment on time today, for me it is all sureal. One day feels like time has flown by, that afternoon I feel the opposite... maybe something to smoke wouldn't be a bad idea... I think I'll have a day like that dog :)

Chana said...

Even my kids say that. Time passed slower just last year they say. I agree with you and i too don't have any idea how that works...

Sorry about the really sad poem. I wanted to cry too. I did. I felt better. On with the show...:)

Catch said...

Julia: very well explained and that makes a lot of sense..now I know why I am getting old so fast!

Lori: If we could stay at 21 can you imagine how many 21 yr olds there would be in this world..lol

Dick: of all the things I have lost...I miss my mind the most ;))

Dr John: Im sure everyday seems like an eternity in those nursing homes...thats why I do the work I do..to try to keep people out of them. People should only be in them if they are homeless or a threat to themselves.

FUZZ: Very well said Fuzz!!! And I totally agree with you!

Karen: Doesnt that doggy look sooo comfortable? lol..be kind to yourself Karen ~ you are a good person.

I remember summers and Christmas seasons that seemed to last forever. Now everything comes and goes.It's like as soon as you finish high school life zooms on by.

Catch said...

how right you are Mimi. Summers seemed like they lasted a year and we had so much to do! We had a bunch of kids in our neighborhood...it was great. We always played outside.

Joe & Karen said...

Good Morning to you Catch, who's to judge "pretty" I love to sing out loud and dance, not that I can do either well but what the heck... I sat outside with a cup of tea and let the sun shine on my face, now its after noon and I havn't done anything (that was my plan wasn't it?) Cheers to you on a good day!

I think I've noticed that same thing happening to me. If you figure out how to stop it let me know.

Joe & Karen said...

In the words of a wise friend...You Go Girlfriend!!! Horray, I'll bet the room will look great. I am very proud of you :)
