Sliding through the last Week

Amazingly, Hump Day has arrived for both the last week of the year and the last week of my full-time employment. 

I am so busy getting ready for the end of the year and the beginning of the new year that I almost did not notice that Hump Day had arrived. 

It is amazing that, as my headlong rush towards retirement continues, the days do not seem to be getting longer, but rather each day is racing past so quickly that I barely can keep up. There is so much to do and the world keeps turning with new excitement at every turn. 

I had begun counting down the hours, but gave up because the hours were spinning past too fast. 

The year is coming to a conclusion. The book of 2021 will soon be complete and it will be another in a long series of years that I have enjoyed. I am staring the COVID monster straight in the eye preparing to go on a cruise with parts of my family. Other parts of the family are slogging through the COVID wastelands of Disney trying to enjoy total escapism while keeping a wary eye on infection rates. 

And so the year draws to a close. Hour by hour. 

Hold fast to the memories before they slip away and are too soon gone.
