Slice of Life Tuesday


Today is time to share a slice of life – the weekly writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.

This is the first writing on my blog for over a week. With my husband in the hospital and long days spent there, I had little energy for blogging or writing.

I found this lovely journal entry “Hello There” (sorry I can not provide a link – if you recognize the pattern format please let me know) and thought it a fun way to share some of my thoughts and feelings today.

Hello There

I am so thankful that my husband will be discharged from the hospital tomorrow! Yeah – after 12 days in!

I keep all the cards and tags my husband has given me since we met 15 years ago. (and I still have many of the cards, artwork and letters from when my own children were young)

I wish I could stop the gremlins in my head that cause me to doubt my writing and art.

I love my husband and children.

I dance to Lady Gaga’s songs.

I sing along with Sam Smith and Taylor Swift

I think often of my mother, who passed away seven years ago.

I really want to be published.

I need to lose weight and exercise more often.

I should spend more time writing and less time online. (This past week has shown me that I can easily be less online. Now I must return to my writing routines. )

I like to watch the Voice, read, make art, listen to music, smell flowers, bake, play card and board games, swim, visit art shows and thrift shops.

I make great waffles, pies and Christmas baked goods.

I always seek ways to help others when I have to buy something. It may cost a bit more, but if it helps a good cause I’m all for it.

  1. 12 days is a long time to spend in the hospital. Glad you’re headed home tomorrow. This is a fun format. Anyone who bakes pies is right up there in my book!

  2. So great that he’s finally getting to come home. Hospitals are the worst. I even like hospitals, but just something about being there day after day drains you like nothing else. Congrats on taking him home!!
    I’ve seen a slicing/blogging format like this before. Great when you’re stuck or don’t have time to write a masterpiece.

  3. I am amazed at how multi-faceted your words make you sound…compassionate, tired, fun-loving, spirited, engaging, reflective, and nurturing. You have the cards of 15 years, and your husband has you by his side. I hope the discharge doesn’t take all day, and I hope recovery is quick.
