I was going to post about the mean lady at the grocery store. I had eloquent words planned out about her animosity, tone, and rudeness that ignited fire in my heart. Somehow I managed to dim the flames and "keep my cool."

I was going to slice about inspirational in particular. This writer has a gift with words. Her phrasing and visual images continue to astound me. The meaning behind her words often help my soul to soar.

I was going to write about my recent time in Texas. Family can be so refreshing and fun. We toured Austin, visited the Alamo, and laughed like little kids on the playground.

Alas, I spent my entire evening working, thinking, typing (for school).

I just moments ago straightened my covers, turned on my nook, took off my socks and tucked my tired body into my snuggly bed. Then I remembered.... It's March 1st!

I hope it is worth it to yank my body out of bed at 10:02 and share these measely words!

Here's to 30 more slices. Hope I remember before 10pm!


  1. I am laughing out loud! So glad you pulled yourself out of bed for this--yes, it's worth it.
    It's nuts.
    But it's worth it!

  2. Lauren -
    Think of this post as your planning slice! Looking forward to reading about the lady at the grocery store, for sure!

  3. Oh yeah - to know that the slices are worth all that! Yeah! This is my first time slicing, so I hope I can have the get-up-and-go that you do! I love this slice of life, slice of the moment!

  4. Some days (too many days!) I "write" so many posts in my head throughout the day that I forget I haven't actually posted anything! Glad you remembered and had the fortitude to throw those covers back.

  5. Thanks for getting out of bed to share. Looking forward to reading more of your posts.

  6. It's definitely worth it. Your slice, composed of "plans" then turned to reality is perfect. Thanks for getting out of bed just to slice.
