{#sol15} 24/31 The Fallback Post

Join us at Two Writing Teachers
for the March Slice of Life challenge.

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. It was a wreck, but the sun shone into the dining room and just made it feel so cozy. I get that feeling to this day whenever I walked into our house.

I dance with my friends whenever we go to listen to bands. And sometimes I dance in the dining room when I'm by myself.

I sing in the car whenever I drive by myself. I always have several CDs with me that I can sing along to. 

I think this year has been easier to write slices every day. Maybe it just seems that way since I started writing at night. More has happened to me. I've had more time to think..... but after five years, shouldn't it get easier?

I really need to get caught up on grading. If we do have a snow day tomorrow, I WILL get everything done.

I need to go to bed!  I can hardly keep my eyes open.

I should, however, grade one more set of papers before I do that.

I can Always do them tomorrow afternoon after our inservice meetings.

I like traveling in the summer. My husband and I are starting to talk about trips we'd like to go on this year. So far, Nashville seems to be the place.

I make lots and lots of lists. There is a list for just about everything in my life. Pretty soon, I'll have lists of my lists!

I always feel so accomplished when I finish my slice for the day!


  1. Thanks for sharing a new idea for writing, to me. I enjoyed learning more about you and dancing is fun for you! Keep on dancing.

  2. I love this post...I may need to steal it...capturing life right now= perfection!!! I ❤️ lists too!

  3. I've done a list already this month. Today was a list, too. I think it is ok...the lists always turn out to reveal so much.

  4. Everyone needs a fall back post. And look at all that you still captured and shared! I'm trying to figure out what to write about now ... so I read and write comments. This may be it for tomorrow. Even in year 5, some days are harder than others to write because we want to write and share something meaningful, even if just to us. :) Bravo for still writing!

  5. A keeper. Fun way to write painlessly.

  6. I, too, have "fallback posts" and I love that you have named it and owned it! I can really hear your voice in your writing. Nashville is a fun city to visit if you enjoy music and dancing. :-)

  8. Even if it's a "fallback post," it still can provoke some great reflection! I want to try this one!

  9. You know you could meet a few at All Write (just sayin').
    I hope you are in school, because snow days in March turn into longer school years and at that point everyone is tired of school and each other. Is the Grand Ole Opry calling you in Nashville?

  10. A fun peek at your life, Deb! I like how some of it had to do with slicing but some of it was just other fun stuff about you! I keep the emails of comments that really touch me too! :-)

    Good for you for using a fallback post... I've missed so many days this year I haven't even done that... oh well!
