Slow it down...

Today I found myself muttering the words "I need a vacation". I immediately started wondering what that means. Does that mean I need a break from my life? Does that mean I am not appropriately handling my stress and my problems? At the end of the day does the need for an escape mean that I could be doing better?

 I don't have answers to any of those questions but I do know that I have suddenly, over the course of the last month, begun to feel like time is ticking by at rapid speed and I have moments only to try and right myself-- to take a break or take a breath or have a drink with my girls or even watch television. I try, I do, to take time for myself for my relationship with my husband, but I am just going 100 miles an hour at all times and it doesn't always feel good.

How is it April already? Why does it still feel like Christmastime and Easter has already gone by? Is this parenting? Is this being an adult?

How do I slow things down?
