They're Just So Giving SOL14 #8

March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers
Join us for a month of writing!

The TV is playing Sleepless in Seattle. The cat is purring in the window. The dishes are still piled in the sink and the pile of laundry is not getting smaller.
I am on my second nap.
The biggest snowflakes fell from the sky, they turned to rain, then sleet, then rain, and snow once again.
The husband and daughter took Nick BACK to the Vet (I was right the stiches were not ready to come out). He was excited to go for a ride.
There’s a pot of chili on the stove ready for whoever feels like eating.
And me, meI am still in my jammies. The headache and sore throat hit sometime in the night. Chills, aches, on a cold wet Saturday. Not in my plans.
I think they were delivered by one sick little kiddo this week that said “Mrs. Klinger, I don’t feel good, my eyes hurt, and my throat is so burning I can’t swallow, and my head hurts so bad my hair hurts.”
Poor kiddoL His was not a slice worth sharing, but he did just the same.     


  1. Good for you for getting your writing in when you feel so cruddy. Get well.

  2. Oh no! We are not supposed to be sick on the weekends. As I drifted off to sleep last night...I worried I wouldn't wake up in time to slice. See what you have done to me!!!!vLove and get well.
