Where did Julio go?

No, not that Julio!

I meant Julio, as in July, the month! 

Where does the time go?

It seems like only yesterday that Julio (July) was starting.  We were anticipating the end of the school year, graduations, the World Cup final and the arrival of my sister-in-law and her family.

Now all of a sudden, it's the last week of July!  Everyone's forgotten about the World Cup.  The kiddies will be going back to school in a matter of weeks.  And my sister-in-law and her family will be heading back the the U.S. in a couple of days. 

Is it just me or do the days, weeks and months seem to be flying by faster?   

Next thing you know, it will be Christmas!  


  1. Just wait until you see your kids graduate high school, then get their own families to really make your year lose Julio quickly.
    My theory is that our information age contributes to the fast 24 hours wizzing by.
    Time didn't seem to go as fast the younger you are....

  2. Still watching the World Cup - FIFA Women's under 20 WC in Germany ;-)

    But yes where has July gone???

  3. I was actually planning Christmas gifts out in my head on the way to work. Time does go by so fast nowadays.

  4. As fast as it feels here, it feels 10x faster up NOB.

  5. time it is a flyin! this may sound morbid but i once read that the older we get the faster time seems to go by because we are closer to our own end and therfore have less time. i'm 55 and lately have wondered how much time i have left. i am hoping to live till 85-as long as i am healthy. of course, none of us has that choice.

    as for julio, one of my college roommates used to listen to him all the time. the rest of us were sick of him, even though we did like his music. i love enrique-wow-what a voice and very pleasant on the eyes. o.k. i'm 55 as i said and happily married, but i'm not blind ;-)

    hope you and the kids enjoy the rest of the summer. i'm going hiking today. i love the mountains.

    take care,

  6. seriously time goes soooo fast! our three week US visit comes to an end today & i can hardly believe it. Flying back to mexico this afternoon. Hope it's not tooo rainy!

  7. Time is relative - doesn't that sound profound!!! But it is, its all relative to what is going on at the moment. I think I'll stop now before I start a thesis on the subject.

  8. So funny! Yes, time flies .... So where is the other Julio?

  9. No. The next thing you know, I will be back in Mexico. Then, it will be time for Christmas.
