Amazed Yesterday Was Thursday


vacation was going to be fifteen whole days.
I was keeping track of days at first
but then I stopped because I did not care.
I lost a couple of days.


I think on a subconscious level I thought
if I stopped keeping track, I would stop
them from running out.

Thought I was stopping time.

I was amazed that yesterday was
Thursday when I was sure it 
Was Tuesday

Time keeps marching along 
With or without us.  
Even death does not slow down
or pause for her.

Yes she does and I wish that at least once, she'd take a day off so we could all catch up. Oh well, I suppose you can't stop a workaholic.

Type A is there for a reason; we have to relax and realize that is why God takes us down and out and makes us be Type S - standing for sick - so we will finally rest.

Welcome to the club, Caren! I experience the same problem – not knowing what day it is when I wake up in the morning! I check my computer to make sure what day it is! / M

I had better know for sure, as my vacation is coming to a rousing end on Monday when I return to work.

Thank you Peter. In my mind this week Thursday was Tuesday, and yet today was Saturday when in fact it is actually Friday.

I am glad you now know Thursday is over; funny how time can be misunderstood and misinterpreted for days.
