Too fast

Today's 100 words:

I've taken to measuring the passage of time by the gasoline needs of our car. Every two weeks--on Thursdays, to be precise--I have to fill the tank. Those are, of course, "normal" weeks in which we don't do any extra driving, just our usual trips to the grocery store, the library, storytime, church, and preschool. The two weeks seem to pass by so quickly, and when I let myself think about it, I realize that my children are two weeks older, then two more weeks, then two more... They're growing up before my eyes--and before I'm ready.


  1. that sounds so familiar!

    mine is filled a little more now, with the practices and games that get farther away...

  2. Although I have to fill my tank once a week (usually on Mondays), every single other aspect of this is so familiar to me. And bittersweet.
