Is it my age?


Is it just my age, or do things seem to be speeding up and getting more intense--for everyone?   I haven't had a day to sleep late in ages.  I don't think I could if I did.  I only dream about sneaking away to a quiet place and resting for a week.  When I talk to my friends, they're running from one crisis to another.  I haven't had to face a destructive tornado, earthquake or flood....so I'm not complaining.  I'm just wondering if everyone else feels this...or is it just that I'm getting old-er?

I'm with ya! I want a minute to sew...AND sleep! With no kids one would think we would have more time. HA! I wonder if in this information age where I call, text, facebook, or read blogs that all the communication is taking the place of my sleep? If I drop off the "information map" so to speak don't worry about me, I may be in the sewing room after work. :)

I agree with Louise! When we were stationed in the Philippines, we had no vehicle, no phone service, and only one tv channel. Things were SO wonderful and slow paced. When we got back stateside, we realized how lucky we had been those 3 years without all those "interruptions"! I am always glad for that time in my life especially since Ben was born during that period and I really enjoyed that one-on-one time with him.

ABsolutely! I think it is just the pace of life today. I went to the drive-thru ATM the other day and put in the wrong number, tried several variations and finally had to call Mike to see what his is. Mine's different slightly, but I had done this whole dyslexic number thing. Made me think I was losing my mind!!

No, it's not your age. I am FEELING it!! The more I try to slow down, the busier it gets. Makes me sick to my stomach sometimes. I really don't like it at all!!!

For me, it's not so much the technology, but the crises. Not just in my life, but those which cry out for my attention! I feel pulled in many directions! It's like I want to step out of the swirling waters and enter the floating river awhile!

Ok...I didn't mean to use so many exclamation points. But I guess that's kind of the punctuation I'm feeling right now. Ha!
