26 Slices

 
I have been less than inspired today in my search for a slice of life story.  Since I had several little snippet ideas but nothing that was worth a whole post...I decided to challenge myself and probably share a little about myself at the same time.
 
 
A - Anxious, the end of the school year seems to be rushing toward me and I'm just not finished with this group of kiddos yet!
 
B - Bestie, I'm lucky to have two.  One who "lives" across the hall and always inspires me and one who lives near Chicago who I miss so much!
 
C - Calling, what I should be doing to catch up with the Chicago bestie and Coffee, which I would like to be drinking and chatting over with across-the-hall bestie right now!
 
D - Daydreamer, what I often find myself doing.  I think this is where I get some of my ideas for writing!
 
E - Eight, eight-year-old drama is rough.  For parents.  Enough said.
 
F - February, it's almost over, which means it's almost time for the March SOL challenge!
 
G - The student who will not stop talking!  What am I going to do about him?
 
H - Home, home is where the heart is, it's not just a saying!
 
I - Inspired, I have gotten so much inspiration this school year because of reading blogs...both teacher blogs and writing/slicer blogs.  I love it!
 
J - Joke, I like a simple joke.  What did the zero say to the 8?  See P for the answer.
 
K - Kindergarten, where I live every week day, where I share my days with 18 pretty great kiddos!
 
L - The text level of my highest reader...in kindergarten!  She's just amazes me every day!
 
M - Make-up days, what my school district now has due to the outrageous amount of snow days we have had this year and winter isn't even over yet!
 
N - Novel, that huge document on my computer that calls to me, the thing that is always in the back of my mind, the story that I daydream about (see letter D).
 
O - Outing, I am looking forward to my book club meeting tomorrow.  It's my mommy outing and I'm looking forward to good company and good discussion...whether it's about the book or not!
 
P - Punch line, "Nice belt!"  (see J for the joke)
 
Q - Ok, did anyone really think I would come up with something for the letter Q??
 
R - Rainbow Loom, the thing that occupies every spare minute of my daughter's time (and the thing I secretly enjoy playing with too!)
 
S - Snow, more specifically, blowing snow...I mean really, haven't we had enough already?  Did we really need more snow and wind today?  
 
T - Two Writing Teachers, the blog that pushes my thinking in the writing arena, my safe place to share my writing.
 
U - Unexpectedly hard letter to find something to start with U!
 
V - Violin, I played from 4th grade - 12th grade.  Now it lives under my bed.  There are days I miss playing...there just aren't enough hours in the day!
 
W - Wondering...what book will the book club choose to read next?
 
X - eXcited to be attending the All Write Conference again this summer!  Anyone else going?
 
Y - You, thanks to you for reading all the way to the end!
 
Z - zzzzzz, what I hope you are NOT doing after reading all the way to the end!  :)
 
 
Well, there you have it: 26 slices of my world today.  I hope you learned something new, I hope you laughed at some of them, and I hope you will come back again!  See you in March!

  7. Well, that just about covers it a to z... and though you were afraid of the ZZZZZs after reading your post, I must admit, it is time for me to catch me some o' them Zs now!

  8. I love it! What a creative idea! I might have to steal it sometime. Since you are a teacher, you might know who Harry Wong is, and the one thing I learned from him was to "steal, steal, steal as a teacher." I guess we could just call it barrow!
