Better Late Than Never


Monday mornings are always hectic. No matter how much I prepare over the weekend, there is always more to do than there is time. Today was no exception.

I was half way to school in a driving rainstorm going through a checklist of things to do…

set up for a sub

set up for the kids

gather materials for an IEP

check to see what is needed for the staff meeting after school…

All of a sudden, I remembered… I forgot to slice this morning! Greatly disappointed and in bewilderment of how I could have forgotten, I had to go with the flow and just accept the fact that my slicing would have to happen at the end of the day, probably after dinner.

And so, here I sit slicing about slicing because my brain is not very creative at this time of night. Tuesday will be better, I just know it.


  1. Oh good! I'm not the only one with days like this! It was a hectic one here too and I know I've forgotten something.... but what??

  2. No worries, we are here reading after dinner too. Give your brain a break, you had a good slice today, did you know there was some alliteration in your word choice?

  3. I've had plenty of Mondays like yours! I always end up slicing after school on work days; I just can't seem to find the time any earlier.

  4. Bravo Wanda,
    I remember those meetings with dread. It's wonderful that there's something new and good happening at your school given the toxic atmosphere in education.
