February Gone Already?

Posted: March 2, 2014 in creative writing, Everyday Life

timewasteWe are still 1 or 2 days short of a month by my count. I wish I could fully understand leap year and short February’s. But I think the earth revolves around the sun in 365.25 days. So every four years we have to put another day in our calendar. Yes it’s true, our earth takes just a little more than a year to get around the sun, our great celestial clock runs slow.

If we bought a watch that ran in the vicinity of 30 minutes a month slow we would take it and the receipt back to the discount store and ask  for a refund. But I’m not quite ready to ask for a refund. The real question is “What are we going to do with the next 365 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes and 12 seconds?”

clocksI know a few people who were born on February 29th and I listen as they bemoan their birthday plight. Each year I think the same thought… “Just be glad you weren’t born on February 30th or the 31st, you would never have a birthday”!

Have a great year, but slow down, relax, it lasts longer than you think. Today do something that takes just a little longer to do, like golf, chess or a game of Monopoly.


  1. Love this! 🙂
    And your thought to leap year babies is so true! 🙂
    Great advice to slow down, relax, and have some fun fun FUN!
    Happy March!!! 🙂
    ♥ and HUGS!!! 🙂
