Not to worry you guys, but

I just looked at the Hobby Lobby Ad for this week, (because I look every week, whether I go or not) and it popped up just like normal, but it said this magical little line at the bottom:
Hobby Lobby Ad Week 42.
Week 42? WHAT?! You know what that means, don’t you?
We have just over 9 weeks until Christmas. Which wouldn’t be problem if you count it in days or months (that’s 2 months + 1 week), but if you consider, my friends, that if you’re knitting gifts for Christmas, you have 9 weeks to finish,
blog block, and send them (if sending is required), then these ‘weeks’ just got a whole lot shorter! EEEEEEE!
So yeah. I hadn’t been thinking about this, and I don’t really think in terms of weeks, but this just struck me right between the eyes when I was looking at the ad (which didn’t really tickle my fancy too terribly much, but whatevs), and now I realize that maybe I should! I mean, breaking things down into days and hours works for me, usually, but sometimes I lose the forest for the trees, and ‘zooming out’ and remembering that tempus does indeed fugit has certainly jangled my confidence today.
But I’m cool. I’ll manage.
Gotta fugit, though – things to do.
To finish, something old that still makes me laugh.
This (ahem, hideous) statue resides in Balboa Park, in San Diego, California. I realize it’s supposed to be a cultural something-or-other and reminiscent of… something, and probably symbolic, too. But it’s still ugly.
