I was going to slice early today so I could work in my classroom. Really I was…
I woke early, took a shower, fixed my hair, ready to go…then I noticed we’re almost out of toothpaste. I knew if we were almost out of toothpaste then the soap wasn’t far behind.
I pulled on my hoodie and headed for Wal-Mart. While I was at Wal-Mart I noticed they had videos on sale for five dollars. Movies like Annie and Classic Fairy Tales. The movies made me think of my classroom.
Thinking about my classroom reminded me I needed to go work in it.
Before I could go to my classroom I needed to put away the groceries. While I was putting the groceries away I remembered I’d bought some hamburger patties to grill for supper.
I thought potato salad sounded good too, so I put some potatoes on to boil.
As the potatoes were cooking I decided to gather the laundry and wash it.
While I was gathering the laundry I noticed my bathroom was in disarray, so I decided to give it a good scrub.
I took the bath mats out to be aired. When I hung them over the fence I saw what a pretty day it was.
I went inside to grab my sunglasses. When I grabbed my glasses I spied the new box of tea bags I’d just bought. I went to the sink to put on a jug of tea.
The tea was brewing. I started to take the potatoes off the stove, but I needed a pot holder. I had seen one in my sewing room so I went to get it.
When I was in the sewing room I noticed it needed a little organization- so I began to sort and store.
Looking at the things in my sewing room reminded me I still needed to go to my classroom.
I went to get my keys. As I reached for my keys I glanced at the tea pitcher and decided to make a glass of tea to go.
The tea reminded me what a pretty day it was outside.
I gathered my tea and sunglasses and headed for a sunny spot in the backyard.
I laid back and began to soak up the sun and warmth. While I was basking in the warmth I remembered my slice. I hopped up and ran in to grab my pen and paper.And chances are when I start to slice... I will remember… I still need to go to my classroom…
