Come on, you’ve heard that phrase before. Right? I grew up on it. My mom would always
yell say it to me.
“Whoa Nelly Lindsay……”
What does that mean? Why Whoa Nelly? I’ll tell you.
Apparently it's an equestrian phrase meaning: “Hold your horses!” Or better yet: "Wait a minute! This is a lot of work! Let's slow down and take things a little at a time”
Well today I gave the hubs a Whoa Nelly! He’s started to pack for his next couple weeks of racing and I thought, whoa…didn’t you just race that race? Nope, that was last year. Again, I thought, whoa…..you mean a year has already gone by? You mean we’re already half way through this year?
You mean my nieces and nephews are already 1, 3, and 5 years old?
Weren't they just born yesterday?
You mean the hubs and I both getting closer to 30?
We still look cool, right?
You mean we haven’t “gotten it all together” yet?
Whoa Nelly…..Uh, no….far from it. But you gotta just smile and roll with it, right?
You mean it’s already another WIAW?t
Jen, I think we had the same day. Empty plates but happy bellies!
Whoa Nelly….the day slipped by but I managed a few pics.
I was half way through this bowl before I realized I needed to take a picture.
At least I saved the topping, right?
And dinner tonight?? Well another whoa Nelly (just hold your horses). I’m not sure what to make quite yet.
to be determined……..
Are you having a whoa nelly day? A whoa nelly year? I hate to say it, but its true. The older I get, the more time just starts to fly by…....way too fast.
I need a moment to breathe, to smile, to cherish, to enjoy.
And so I will.
Cheers to the here and now!
