This Time I Did Forget

I didn't write a Slice yesterday.  By the time I realized it, I was already in bed and it was after 10pm.  At that point, I was foggy, unwilling to get out of bed to head downstairs to write.  I felt bad that I had let myself down, but I also knew that if I didn't get to sleep, I would be mad at myself in the morning.

So here I am, picking up where I left off on Saturday.  Thinking about the day that was and the evening to come.  Considering how I'm going to stay awake to score the math tests that I'm sure will reveal my students weren't really ready for. Wondering how I'm going to make it to Friday and Spring Break.

Slowly but surely, this week will unfold.  I have a feeling I'm going to have to really search to find the inspiration to write.

Funny how breaking a streak can really bum me out.

  1. I also missed a day last week and was pretty bummed out. But I reminded myself that its okay to take care of myself first -- I wouldn't want to resent my time spent writing and reading slices because it adds to my stress or my to do list. It's important to find ways to make time for new activities, but also to keep a sustainable balance in your life!
