SOLS: Like We Never Even Left


Slice of Life Stories hosted




A two week
holiday break.
Full of
resting
relaxing
playing
reading
napping 
enjoying our days.

I needed
the time away, 
but real life
B E E P E D
me awake 
this morning.
Early.
Back to
school and work
like we never
even left.

  1. I hope that you returned fully energized. Your break sounds fulfilling. I have few more days to sleep, play, and read.

  2. I love the verbs that filled your break, but the best was your BEEP jarring you back to work. Have a great day!

  3. I love how you've captured your break--and the return to school. Hope your return to teachers and kids was more gentle than the beeping alarm!

  4. Perfect. Tomorrow I'll be "beeped" back into real life.
    Happy 2012,

  5. I was beeped yesterday for inservice and today for kids. Wasn't quite ready, but it comes whether we are or not!

  6. I know others have mentioned it too, but I love your 'beeping'. Argh, it was so early! Happy New Year, MIchelle!

  7. What a perfect way to capture the transition! I love the font change for the onomatopoeia. I never think to do those things. I am already trying to brace myself for the shock my body will feel tomorrow morning. I have been way off my usual schedule for way too long! Hope your first day back was a reminder of how much fun our jobs are!

  8. What a great way to show the connection between the break and back to work. I felt the same way!
