Slice of LIfe I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March.  You should do it too! Check it out here. Thank you,  Two Writing Teachers


A weekend! Catch up days: catching up on work and quality-time-snuggles with my children. Well, that’s the idea anyway.
