I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. You should do it too! Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!
Sick Days when I was a kid Mom took care of me I rested on the couch, on my bed I read books Watched TV The Price is Right Little House on the Prairie. I slept off and on My mom brought me water and saltines I watched People's Court Read another book Went to bed Sick Days now I am awakened at 6:30 head downstairs I fill the dishwasher Wash pots and pans Clean the stove Wipe down the fridge Clear and clean the counters Step over legos Mediate bickering Go to Target for essentials Stop at Trader Joes Come home to more dishes Sit for a minute, open a book Console a crying 6 year old Go outside on this blustery, grey windy day Listen to children make a fort Wait for after bedtime to rest, to sleep
