Where Does The Time Go To?

It seems like only minutes ago I sent them all off to school and work.  And already the youngest one is due home in minutes!  And I'm just not ready!  What happened to all the plans I had for this morning?  Nothing materialised.  Well,  I suppose you could say I wrote a blog post!

And once they get home, the race is on. 

Better hurry!  The youngest one will be here soon!


  1. I remember those days when I had to rush to be at the school gate to meet Elly. "Where have those years gone?" I often ask, do you think I blinked?

  2. I agree with Grannymar! One day my daughter was just a baby, then schoolage, now she has children of her own! In hindsight, it went by so fast, I wanna go back! Glad to have you back!

  3. I think you were channeling me!

  4. The story of my life! :)))

  5. How interesting to read your account! It's always fascinating to me how people live far from where they were born and end up making these places home. To me, the US feels much more at home than Romania. Your story is so interesting. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Time does fly really fast! Every morning I plan I'' do some studying today and the day just flies and by the end of the day I have nothing done!! :P

  7. Time, waits 4 no 1, and it won't wait 4 us.

  8. You talking about the speed with which morning turned into evening when you saw your lil kid......I am just wondering at the pace my years passed by....and like your lil kid....i myself see coming back from school..fresh in my mind like yesterday......

  9. Hi:)


    When you have little children time really flies. The reason is they are completely dependent on you for everything. But this is the most wonderful time of your life and you will not get back this precious period. One they grow up, they will have their own friends, their own projects, their own ideals, their own thinking, their own planning in which parents are not involved. So this is the most wonderful time any mother can enjoy.

    As far as blogging is concerned it should be fun activity and should not put pressure on you.

    All my three children are grown up and two of them are working. There is hardly any commotion in the house. The house remains deadly silent most of the time. I miss those marvelous days when children were all over me demanding this and that. I assure you we had a rollicking time.

    Have a wonderful day:)

  10. Ahhhhh. How quickly a day sails by! And time seems to go by even more swiftly! I am still stunned that my son is now 14 and in high school! I have Mondays off, and I always have such lofty plans but then...BAM it is after 2 and I have to race to pick my son up from school. :)

  11. gaelikaa, as they get older, you'll be saying "Where does the time go?" in a different context.

    My youngest is now in college and engaged. My oldest isn't engaged - but has a 7-year old daughter!

    Where does the time go to??

Good Intentions

I had great intentions for this week.  I'd write a thousand words every day, review six books, get my Loose Bloggers Consortium (LBC) post up well in advance.  And did I?  No, no, no.  I wrote about two hundred words per day and have been trying to read and review two books and still not finished reading.  My target of 19,000 words until today by now is around 15,000 on my 100kWords in 100 Days Challenge.  It seems I'm just not cutting the mustard.

I have the intentions.  I just don't seem to have the mojo to carry out the things I want to do. So many intentions, not enough time.  I've not been sleeping well lately.  Probably very tired.

So - my intention now is to try to get more sleep.  Then carry out the original intentions.That' what I intend to do.  As of now.  Meanwhile, my post is up one day late.

I had to go out to the bank this morning to get some pending work finished.  I clicked the above picture en route.  It seems that after a three week winter, we're…

Global Peace - Is It Possible? LBC Post

I can't believe it's Friday already and time for another LBC post.  The Loose Blogger's Consortium (LBC) is a blogging group consisting of about half a dozen of us who blog together every Friday on the same topic.  We are indebted to Ramana (aka blogger Rummuser) for this week's topic.  Instead of just giving a straightforward topic like anyone else would, he posed a question instead.  Is global peace possible? he asked.  I decided to answer his question in a Tweet sized sentence.

Is global peace possible?  Of course it is. If everyone gets in harmony with each other.   But will it happen?  How on earth would I know?

As we say in Ireland (well, as they used to say when I lived there two decades ago), that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks to All-Free-Download for the photo.  Thanks to Lettercount for their character counting facilities.  And thanks to my LBC group for being there every Friday in blogging solidarity.

The Curse of Poverty - Short Story

As the dawn light spread its fingers across the early morning, Rajji stirred uneasily.  She tended to sleep like a street dog - ever alert, with one ear open.  But she'd been tired the previous night and as a consequence had slept rather heavily. Her life was a constant struggle, filled with tasks and responsibilities. If she hadn't been careful, she might have been robbed!  She sprang into alert mode and clutched about her person.  No, everything was in place, the precious money was undisturbed.  Thanks to her employment with the bank, cleaning for one hour every morning, six days a week, she even had a bank account which one of the bank employees had helped her to set up.  What little money she had saved up was safe.....

She looked over her children.  Babu, her son lay sleeping still.  Muniya, her daughter, stirred, close to waking up.  But where was Gudiya, her youngest child?  Might have woken up early and gone to wander around.  Gudiya knew everyone around here and every…
