sols: right now

Slice of Life hosted at the 

What could I write about?  Hmmm. . . let me count the ways:

  1. Time.  There is just never enough. 
  2. Social media.  Sucks up my time.
  3. Timers.  To control my time?
  4. Celebrations.  Need to notice more.
  5. Sickness.  Being sick is icky.
  6. Tired.  Need an uninterrupted night of sleep.
  7. Surfing.  Still swimming the waters.
  8. Reading.  Snuggled with my girls.
  9. Three.  Not an easy age.
  10. But three.  Such a fun age.
  11. And three.  Really opinionated age.
  12. Good days.  Playing in the leaves.
  13. Bad days.  Lack of patience.
  14. Mom.  A waiting email with snippets of stories.
  15. Prayer.  It's powerful.  
  16. Story.  Each idea holds a memory, a moment, a story of right now.


  1. Love the numbered list - it's fun to make inferences about some and completely understand the others. Now get some rest! :)

  2. I love this list. Enjoy those opinionated three year olds! They will be teenagers and gone way too soon!

  3. I think I could have written this list--well, except for the three year old parts. Looks to me like you could add number 17--Finding time for myself :)

  4. Your list is right on. The point about social media sucking up your time Is so true. I've found this week that it's not all that important, other than knowing what is happening with family and friends. Enjoy those 3 year old moments. They pass way too quickly. Love ya Mom

  5. I plan on doing the March SOL Challenge. There are times when I think how will I ever have enough ideas to write about for 31 days straight! Then I come here and read your posts and think how many different ideas can I take/steal from Michelle's blog. You just have a knack for making a great post out of something that seems so simple. Thank you!

  6. Just love your list. The way you wrote it is something I, too, would like to try in an upcoming slice.

    And no, there's never enough time, is there?

  7. I like that the list tells a story. The best part was the three threes.

  8. Your list is a telling slice in itself. Sometimes the fewer words we use, the more we say (if we pick the right ones). Nice!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
