Why is it that as we get older, time seems to go by faster?   And especially the summer months.  It feels like just yesterday I was blogging from the Cape about my mental space and all the things I wanted to do this summer.  I was having a conversation about this very topic this weekend and decided to eliminate this new stress.  Now when I look at the calendar, I realize its not the middle of August but rather and only the second third.   

August is always bittersweet for me.  It means change which is both good and sad.  The weather is changing.  The days are still great for sunning but the cooling has a positive effect on my hair.  Good hair days are right around the corner.  My monkeys are going back to school.  I am always lucky to find the sweetest girls that pour their hearts into their work.  Fall brings new monkeys, many approaching their last year at school.  This is always both a challenge and a treat to watch them experience the transition.    Its time to start building a new fall wardrobe.  Fall clothes are my favorite – I just love boots, sweaters and jackets, but I will miss the ease of my tanks and flips.  And my workload seems to start taking speed right about now.  Don’t get me wrong, being busy is great, running around two cities like a one armed paper hanger is not. 

Today I am on a 10:30am bird.  I will spend all of 24 hours in NYC and then have to travel back to my office for another meeting on yet another event tomorrow. Then Wednesday I go back to NYC for the remainder of the work week (which I hope excuses me from posting every day).  Four birds in one week. This basically is my routine and pace for the rest of the year.    And you know what?  I am looking forward to every minute of every day.  

But for the time being, I am going to go back and read all my blogs from earlier this summer.  Figure out what I can check off my list (I made my summer platter!) and what I still want to do.  No worries, I have time. 

After all, we are only in the second third.
