I missed a day. 17 days in, nice and steady with posting and Day 18 interrupted my streak.
There aren't really great excuses. I sometimes write at night and post in the morning but I was so tired on the 17th that I didn't. When I woke up on the 18th, no ideas were ready to go either. I was taking a half day to get a mammogram and later my eyebrows waxed so I had to finish my sub plans and get set up.
The rest of the day involved picking up Chinese food for lunch for my mom and myself, getting to the Radiology office and having a mammogram and sonogram, killing time before my eyebrow was by shopping at Ulta and then the eyebrow wax. When I got home, I tried out my new eyebrow kit and made thicker eyebrows which both my children absolutely hated. Drop off to soccer, pick up from soccer, dinner out at a local diner where the kids continued to criticize my new brows.
Once we got home, I wiped off my new brows after all the hate they received and sat down to Slice.....only to find the mouse was out of charge and needed to be plugged in. I knew I wouldn't make it back down for the night and that a slicing day was going to be lost. Megan and I worked on this art project we are doing together- a giant sticker poster where we have to put on little stickers for each letter (It's called Stick Together if you are interested!) Then, we went upstairs to get ready for bed- she was playing on her ipad and I was reading the book That Summer by Jennifer Weiner.
And so.....n o Slice. But that was yesterday! Hopefully it's the only one I miss this month!
