Day 7 – March SOLSC
Got the call last night that we wouldn’t have school today. My daughter did the typical kid happy dance, while I sat thinking about all of the things I could/should get done on a snow day. After all, it’s an unexpected day off in the middle of the week. Of course I should be productive. Let’s see…
Slept in until 8:30am (Remember the days when 8:30 was considered early?!)
Made coffee and started the dishwasher (Ok, hubby started the dishwasher)
Sipped the hot, delicious, coffee while watching the Weather Channel.
Had some cereal while still watching the Weather Channel.
Listened to my daughter practice her violin (Can’t get her to practice all week, but on a snow day, she’s motivated).
Texted with some friends.
Went to the Gym for about a half hour (the snow wasn’t coming down all that heavy yet).
Grabbed lunch with my hubby.
Thought about what I was going to write for my Slice today.
Read some other Slices.
Watched the snow falling down – slow, then heavy, slow again. Are we going to get what they predicted?
It seems as though I did many things today. However, it’s now about 3:15 and I have yet to enter my report card grades or work on writing my report card comments. Why oh why can’t I find the motivation for these? I love my kiddos, am so proud of all their growth, am always talking about them and how great they’re doing. So why can’t I just sit and write what I need to write? Maybe it’s because I want them to be perfect? Maybe it’s because the rubrics we use for report cards make me bananas? Maybe it’s because I’d rather be sipping tea by the fireplace? Whatever it is, I know I’m not the only one who is struggling to write report card comments today. I read another Slice on the Blog Writing328 where ShellyMKeller talks about snow days and report cards – Only I think she was way more productive in this area than me! I’ll get back on track – right after I have another cup of tea!
I’m participating in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge! Thank you to the team of writers at Two Writing Teachers for this wonderful writing community. A place for us to grow together as writers.
