Last Week Before Break

25 of 31 - SOLSC 2018

The Slice of Life March Challenge is hosted by Two Writing Teachers and part of the Slice of Life Story Challenge that takes place each Tuesday throughout the year and everyday in March. It is a supportive (and awesome!) community of those trying their hand at writing and encouraging others in their writing. Join us!

Up before my alarm
(Remember to turn it off)
Out the door to walk
Too warm
Head for gym
Walk on a loop of rubber
Always feels longer than 
wandering the neighborhood

Ready for school
Four day week
Then Spring Break
I know it's gonna 
feel like eight


  1. Love this: "Walk on a loop of rubber"! Ah, the treadmill so aptly deconstructed. All the best for a short week that hopefully won't feel like double that.

  2. I'm right there with you. We're inching so close to the break, but time does seem to slow the more antsy the kids get.

  3. Isn't it true? Our short weeks always feel longer. Good luck. My last week before break too.

  4. I am in total agreement with you about treadmills--yuck. They demand so much self-discipline!! Also, so true that time s-l-o-w-s down when we do things we dread whether it's walking on a treadmill or trying to motivate kids to learn the week before spring break while trying (and not always succeeding) to motivate ourselves. Hang in there!!
