Giddy with Excitement – Daily Prompt

Michelle at WordPress poses this question:

When you’re giddy with excitement, does time speed up? Slow down? Tell us about the experience of anticipation.

I spend much of my time giddy with excitement.  I know- I require a lot of energy.  When I’m really bouncing with excitement from anticipation of any kind of event that catches my fancy – time ssssssssssssssllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwssssssssss down… then it’s HERE …and it then it *zips* by in a flash.




And Waiting...

And Waiting…

    You raise a good point: why do the BIG moments always seem to mess with our perception of time?
    I was frozen in time when our daughter was born; the sheer weight of the moment was overwhelming. Great post, by the way!
