My humorous thoughts about life.

"My Humorous and Helpful Thoughts About Teaching / Educational Resources for Your Classroom / Music and Random Fun"

Monday, December 30, 2019



Can you believe it? I feel like my life is speeding up and perhaps it is. After all, a year is an eternity for a toddler. Looking at a year as half of your life is huge. 1/58th of it, not so much. The older we get, the faster time flows. It's Einstein's theory of Relativity.

So what are you going to do to make this year better than the last one? We always resolve to lose weight or get healthy, don't we? I wonder how many people I've lost and gained in my lifetime. That means, looking at weight loss and comparing it to the poundage of a human. I've certainly lost and gained many chihuahuas in 2019 alone.

How about the kindness resolution? That's a good one. It's often difficult to ignore stupid comments on Facebook, but I'm trying. I think I'll resolve to spend less time on FB to begin with. It certainly is a time suck that steals from my business. As a self employed person, the more I work the more I make. So, that's it. Time limits on Facebook.

As a former teacher, I know that teachers need all the time they can get to work on lesson plans, evaluations, grading papers, and everything else that goes along with the thankless job. So here you go! Resolve to spend time wisely.

Finally, here is a favorite song from a favorite scene from a favorite movie, 'It's a Wonderful Life.'

Also, I have two new products that I've listed within the last week.

I agree, life is speeding by now. I blinked and my girls are adults. I can hardly believe we are already 58, I still think of us as we met so many years ago. Happy New Year.

The years do go by faster the older we get but I think even youngsters sense the speed in which time passes. I know our kids realized this when they were younger. I attribute much of this to our busyness. We simply don't stop enough to smell the roses. That's the biggest problem, I think. You're absolutely right about Facebook being a big time suck. I'm not on there nearly as much as I was in the early years and have managed to drop back a little more each year but that time was replaced with my blog. At least I enjoy doing things with my blog a little more and as you pointed out, those idiot comments comments often found on FB aren't generally problem on my blog, so that alleviates that annoyance. 'It's a Wonderful Life' is a great film with a fabulous message. Here's hoping we look at 2020 through fresh eyes like George Bailey. Have a joyful New Year, my dear friend and may God bless you! xx

I subscribe to the "toilet roll" theory - the closer you get to the end, the faster the roll spins. OK, maybe not as elegant. I love "It's a Wonderful Life" and I've been to the city in upstate New York (Seneca Falls) which (allegedly) inspired the movie by a real life incident many years ago. Seneca Falls holds a "It's a Wonderful Life" festival every December and fans come from miles around. For years, Karolyn Grimes, who played Zuzu, attended the festival and signed autographs, etc. Happy New Year to you! Alana
