    My wife and I were talking and she mentioned about Thanksgiving being next Thursday.
    I said "It's not next Thursday."
    My wife assured me that is by saying "Thanksgiving is Thursday November 23 and today is the 13th."

    I just don't see how that is possible. In my mind Thanksgiving is 2 or more weeks away. Where is the time going?

    Not sure where the time is going but it sure doesn't seem like Thanksgiving.

    Time flies and the older you get the faster it does so.

    I was wondering why the family were bugging me to let them all know what they are supposed to bring for Thanksgiving. I thought they were planning a little early. Guess not!

    Time certainly is flying! Now when clients call to book appointments for their dogs I'm like '' Didn't I just groom him 2 weeks ago?" unfortunately, the answer is always "No, it was 2 months ago!".

    Every year I tell myself that all my shopping/making of Christmas gifts will be done before Thanksgiving because I get so busy grooming. As usual, I haven't even started yet! UGGG!
