Slice of Life Tuesday: Heading into the Break

Slice of Life Small LogoHeading into the Break

I am looking forward to next week’s spring break and the calm and peace that should come with it. It’s been such a long month with illness, friends in the hospital for sicknesses and surgeries, and interrupted work schedules.

I hope each and every one of you has a chance to relax and enjoy this season of renewed gifts!

SOLSC Day 29: Not Yet

Slice of Life Small LogoThank you to the ladies at Two Writing Teachers (www.twowritingteachers.wordpress.com) for hosting the March Slice of Life Story Challenge!

Not Yet

My granddaughter says, “Not yet” when she wants to stall, avoid, or wait a few minutes. I’m thinking of her tonight, as I wait impatiently for spring break.

Should I make lunch now? Not yet.

Should I get the laundry done? Not yet.

Should we get some spring clothes and bathing suits ready for the trip? Yes, we should!

Should I make dinner? Not yet. We have to drop off the car first. Maintenance day Monday!

Should I go to bed? Not yet. I have to see if the Notre Dame women’s basketball team wins.

Have a great week everyone! If you’re going back to work tomorrow, take it easy and have a low-key day. If you are on spring break, have a blast! If you’re waiting for spring break, like me, remember: “patience is a virtue.”

Taking a Break

It’s spring break here, and I was just thinking about how great it is to have some time to read for fun. No homework, no lessons, no projects. Just reading. Research concludes that any time spent reading helps one to become a better reader. What are you reading?
