Awake already? Better get up, this is a busy day. Can’t the dog walk himself? Don’t forget to run to the grocery store. Especially since you didn’t pack lunch. Found a few things I needed, what’s next on the list? Get going! Haven’t you checked the time?! I am SO tired. Just the second day of daylight savings has me feeling unlike myself. Keep pushing through this day. Let me check on my friend. Maybe he’ll follow directions the first time – just this once? Nope. On to the next child who needs my love and encouragement. Please can I get one second to myself? Quite the day I’ve had…Right now, I still have three things on the to do list. Squat, lunge, kick! This laundry will never end. Uh, did she really just text me that?! Very likely I’ll overthink this situation all night. Wine seems necessary at this point. EXpecting my husband home soon. Yet, this moment alone is refreshing. Zoning out time!
I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the post on Two Writing Teachers yesterday about stories and band aids. I know this is a band aid, dear reader, but I feel like this challenge is pushing me creatively and productively, and I know my real and true story will come. I’ve given you so much of myself without writing a story that I keep pushing it off. Forgive me and thanks for always accepting me and reading me anyway!
