It is Tuesday and Slice of Life day. Last week we finished up the challenge and I was so set to write each Tuesday. Then this morning I had an early meeting. It was to be done in an hour. I would write directly after the meeting but I walked about of the building at noon – four hours later. It is testing season and so much to do.
I hurried off to my afternoon book group with retired teachers, met my husband for a quick dinner and now am finally home. Ah – I thought an evening to write but then I looked at my e-mail. There was way to much to deal with and work to complete for testing. So I am here to say I am still here, I will still write but not tonight.
I realized I need to get organized for the next 5 weeks. I will be helping with testing for 5 weeks so Tuesdays will be tricky. I need to plan ahead – maybe even write on the weekend. None of this wait until Tuesday morning and write quietly in my office in the morning sun with tea.
What happened I thought I was retired. This feels a bit like the old work schedule. I guess this is what I get when I say yes to helping. When I say yes to little jobs that turn into big jobs.
See you next Tuesday – with a more interesting slice of life.
My slice today is really – just a note to say I am headed back to work. It is testing season!
