How Did Time “Get Away”?

My Mom often, very often, maybe every day often said “Don’t let your time get away.” It alway bugged me. Time can’t get away. Time just is. You cannot manage time. Iit ticks away no matter what you are managing. If my Mom were alive this morning I would have to call her to say “Oh, I get it now. I understand.”

So I will walk you through my learning experience this morning that turned the light on for me.

Knowing that today will be very busy I made a to do list to follow. I whizzed through the first few items just fine. In fact, I was feeling like I was on a roll. Then I went into the laundry room and realized that he had moved the clothes from the dryer and put them in a basket. I stopped and took care of the clothes. I realized that my brother said he thought he could a load of laundry by himself yesterday. I had not checked on that. So I headed upstairs to his laundry room and turned on the washer. (He did get them in the washer, but had forgotten to turn them on.)

Came back down and went into the office to check my work schedule. I will typically hop on and help if things are very busy. That looked fine. On my other monitor I saw that I had left Virily open. There was a message.

I responded and the hit latest items. I read a couple and then I saw something about butterflies. Here’s what went through my head. “We had a lot of butterflies this year. Everyone commented on it. I really don’t know much about butterflies, I wonder if there is anything interesting.” I clicked the link. …………….. Two hours, several articles and videos later I realized I was still at my computer learning about butterflies.

  1. I used to have an Science teacher in 4th grade, I loved him! He could start out by telling us one thing and the next thing you knew you were on a totally different topic and class was over. I think he had this problem but he really taught us so much by his stories. I started painting when I was really young, hours would fly by in seconds, I still do that now when I am out taking photos and hiking with the dogs, and as you stated online, finding out interesting facts. Good poll here. I had to answer that I really didn’t learn much about you that I didnt already know or kind of figured anyway. Sounds like you had a great day. : )
