Slow Down

 
"I'm In A Hurry (And Don't Know Why)" By Alabama
I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

Don't know why
I have to drive so fast
My car has nothing to prove
It's not new
But it'll do 0 to 60 in 5.2.

Oh I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

Can't be late
I leave plenty of time
Shaking hands with the clock
I can't stop
I'm on a roll and I'm ready to rock.

Oh I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

I hear a voice
That say's I'm running behind
I better pick up my pace
It's a race
And there ain't no room
For someone in second place.

I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

 
Sounds familiar at this time of year.....eh???  Retail businesses seem to push harder each year to be the first to get your $$ that we rush through the holidays before we can take a breath, and enjoy them.......so I'm slowing down and enjoying each holiday this year.  I want to eat the turkey first, then onto the next holiday....as my friend, Nick, suggests!!! LOL!!
 
On a much lighter note, I made a few of these cards for close family and friends. No, it's not a typical Thanksgiving card.......but then neither are the family and friends they went out to.....*grin*

Do you send Thanksgiving cards?

  1. You know krisha i have nevered sent Thanksgiving cards... hmmmm.. not sure why... But i totally agree with you about slowing down and enjoying each Holiday... Yes , retail stores are all in a tizzy... What most people fail to realize is that 'we' the consumer are in the driver seat... If sales of Christmas items put out in August weren't so good then they would have not put it out so early .. but if we buy it then they will... We can take back control of the Holidays any time we wish but we all have to do it together.

    Personally i try not to think ahead too much.. Oct is for Halloween, Nov.. for Thanksgiving and Dec. for Christmas... Its the only way i can enjoy it... The stuff might be on the shelves at the stores but i don't have to look at it until i'm ready. :) Hugs! deb

  2. I'm like Nick and want to slow down, but can't. This month is a blur to me so far, so I am happy to stop and get a big laugh at your song lyrics AND your turkey card. Love it.

    I've sent a couple of T day cards in my life, but I'm not much of a card maker, so prefer to send Christmas cards instead. Yours is really a HOOT.

  3. I think Nick has some good advice there, and I love that card! I can think of a hunter friend who would enjoy it, too!
