1 month 'til XMAS 09--whaaaaa?

Seriously is it already Nov. 25? Peeps I am shocked into awe. I mean wasn't I just planting beautious flowers on my rooftop deck and enjoying pool time? Now its dark by 5pm with snow around the corner and Christmas one month away. I say it often and I assure you I will not stop saying how is it that life moves at such a fast pace. How do the days fly by at such a ferocious speed! Someone said the older you get, the faster time goes...well I must be getting tres old.
I am not going to lie, I miss the old no no november. A month to let your body rejig, your liver relax and your mind to become clear--just in time for the tricky holiday season. By tricky I mean late days out celebrating the season, long days at work with the year coming to an end and trying to keep normalcy in ones daily life...It is tough, let me tell ya. But the way I see it come Jan 1, my focus will be work and training for Boston, with not a whole whack of time for social engagement so I am letting it slide for now. I love the build and the socialness the next month offers. Seeing old friends, laughing the night away cozied up to a warm fire while enjoying a pleasant glass of veines or if you wanna take it to the next level a glorious glass of nog. OR busting out in snowstorms in heels when cabbies even refuse to hit the roads to your local or your bff's local. At the time, very irritating but from hindsight, one of your fondest xmas season celebrating memories. Have one that makes me giggle out loud.
Have I started my xmas shopping? Nope not yet. Do I plan on starting before the 20th, probably not. But that is how I roll.
Am I excited for xmas 09? More so then years past. The laughs, the loves and the fun with fam and friendsies are what make it for me. Tis the season afterall and I have a feeling this year will be full of the aboves!

I'm hoping the feeling that things pass us by so quickly, turns into something that doesn't cause anxiety the older I get...
