Join us at Two Writing Teachers for the March Slice of Life challenge. Share your stories! Every year I have a day (or two or three) where I have trouble thinking of things to write. Just in case, I always have a fallback post. A listy type of post I can use. Many slicers this year have used the "Currently" post, but I used that last year. Luckily, I found a new one... Found at Wanderlust I am really hoping we don't miss another day of school tomorrow. Right now we have freezing rain which is supposed to turn into snow. Could be messy morning... I keep emails from fellow slicers that mean a lot to me. I like to go back and read them when I need a pick me up. I have a little folder in my email so I don't accidentally trash them. I wish I could meet the slicers whose emails I keep. One of these days I will. It's my promise to myself! I love my house. I loved it from the first day we walked into it.

We took Chloe in the car with us when we went to Target. She was as excited as we were to get out of the house.
Let's face it. The last 18 months have been tough on everyone. Doesn't matter how you have spent the pandemic, it's been tough. I was toughest on myself. Didn't seem like I was "accomplishing" anything (I'm retired. Just what do I think I have to accomplish?) I just quit everything for a while. In January, I chose Grace as my One Little Word. It has given me permission to forgive myself for not getting things done. It gave me permission to not worry about writing (again). Once we got Sophie, it gave me permission to not have a spotless house (like it ever was!). Grace I started thinking about my writing and my blog last week.

But Chloe did give me lots of stories to tell! Grace One of the things I struggled with after Chloe passed was what to do with the blog.
