#sol20 March 22 A slice of Sunday; The usual and the different

Slice of LIfePart of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge! I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by.


I made the kids help clean, like usual.
Took the dog on a walk, like usual.
Chatted with the neighbor, like usual.
Brought my clean laundry up to my room, like usual.
Left folded piles on my bed, like usual.
Made dinner, like usual.
Helped everyone get ready for the week ahead, like usual.

There was more to clean and also less. That’s different.
The Sunday dog walk was shorter than our daily treks. That’s different.
Sat 6 feet away from my neighbor as we both drank our teas. That’s different.
I didn’t have any work clothes to hang to dry. That’s different.
A lot of sweats, comfy socks and cozy sweaters to fold. That’s different.
Didn’t go to the grocery store even though we need fresh veggies. That’s different.
Made a schedule with each kid for their distance learning. That’s different.

  1. Reading your notes here had me thinking – what if I was reading this and didn’t know the “why” behind the differences. What would I think made the difference? I’m sure none of us would have thought of a pandemic.

  2. I like this format. So much of our lives seem the same now, but there are little subtle differences we need to pay attention to
