I keep thinking. I keep moving.
I cannot stop.
The list - it never ends!

Clean out their overflowing book boxes.
Shop for new books to stir up some reading excitement.
Remember to read the opinion mentor text before writer's workshop tomorrow.
Choose a student for a thumbs up award.
Pick a child to read at open mic night.
Find an author to read a writing piece on video.
Rush out the door.
Daycare pick up. Girl scout cookie pick up. Book club.
Empty the dishwasher.
Put away the three baskets of clean laundry.
Clear clutter off the table. Make dinner.
How was your day? Tell me your best and worst parts.
Dinner's done. Clear the table. Fill the dishwasher.
Sign and return school conference forms for my children.
Remember to sign their planners.
Don't forget to send snack on Thursday!
Play Barbies. Tickle bellies. Find lost toys. Laugh.
Pjs, cuddles, books, bedtime.
Take a breath.
Find a place to land.
The couch feels nice.
I'll just lay down for a few minutes.
Can you hand me the fuzzy red blanket?
I guess everything else can just wait until tomorrow...
when it starts all over again.
March is coming soon!! Have you signed up to participate in the Slice of Life Challenge? I have and I can't wait to begin! I hope to see you there!

I was able to try out PicMonkey yesterday for another poem I was working on and when I remembered a photo I had taken last winter after an ice storm, I decided to do some playing. How was your drive today?
Come join in the slicing fun at the Two Writing Teachers blog.

on my face
lands on the Earth
a frozen message
Did you get a new thick blanket too? What did your snow pile inspire?
