The March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers
Join us for a month of writing!
It was a simple text.
Wonder if you and Jeff want to meet us for dinner tonight.
Not a girl outing but we can fit that in next week over spring break.
And she said yes. It has been way too long. It can be hard to get together with friends when schedules change, lives get busy, and the kids' routines lead our way.
Chris and I have known each other for over 13 years. This is the first year that we are not working in the same building. That's been hard. She's my ying to my yang. She balances me. She edited my emails and letters and soften the words. She thinks BIG and in circles. She makes me remember to laugh. She always knows how to lighten the mood during stressful moments.
Last night was no different. She listened to me babble and complain and talk and laugh about school and houses and life. I'm lucky enough to have her writing this month so that I can read what's going on in her life. But that's not the same as chatting every day. I wonder if she knows how much I miss her every day.
It was her suggestion that prompted this slice. Her last text to me about dinner:
Great way to start the week -- instant slice for Monday or Tuesday.
And I agree! It was a great start to my week! Thanks, Chris, for your listening ear!
