{sols} excuses


Slice of Life hosted at the

Another week goes by ...

I have plenty of excuses
for not writing.
Or even wanting to write.

I'm tired
and it's late --
I just don't feel it.

I've been testing
and scoring 
and grouping.

I had two late nights
connecting with families
at goal setting conferences.

I took one daughter
back to the doctor with
yet another ear infection.

It's raining and yucky
and not creating
that right writing mood.

I just don't feel it.
It's late
and I'm tired.

There are plenty more excuses
for not writing.
Or even wanting to write.

Another week goes by ...

  1. I'm tired, sad but true...it's a hurdle to overcome. Even not wanting to write...I feel that way sometimes, too. You capture it well with your words. You are not alone.

  2. You wrote, even though you were tired, it was late, and you didn't feel like it. Thanks for sharing these honest words. Hope your sick one is better soon, the weather improves, and next week doesn't bring any late night conferences!

  3. Yep. That's how it feels sometimes, yet it is good to get the feelings out of the system. I hope your fall break is very close and during that week everyone is healthy. Hug.

  6. I too can feel the stress Michelle...and so understand it. One day at a time...and it always will be there tomorrow.

  7. I never even got close enough to my computer to make excuses for my lack of a slice yesterday! But, I enjoyed finding this poem about excuses today! I hope your stress was lessened by its very writing. Thanks for sharing!
