So Long!

sols_5-years_w1 WOW!! Thirty one days. We did it! Thanks to the wonderful Slice of Life friends, and our hosts - Two Writing Teachers. 

So long, and thanks for all the fish. - Douglas Adams  (But just until the next post, right?) 

This is a short post, because I’m hoping to also post from the “field”. I’ll be camping with my cub scouts. Yep, I'm a "den mom". I'd like to say I make the shirt look good, but it's just not true. Yet I talk a good talk about being a strong woman as an example for my sons, so I try to make sure I walk the walk as well. 

I’ll be cold, tired, and dirty.
I’ll eat food that is horrifically bad for me.
                Hello, s’mores!I’m looking at YOU!
I’ll be stuffed into a fluffy sleeping bag,
                Hoping I don’t need to leave the tent
in the middle of the night
to pee.
I’ll hike, huddle around a fire, and hug my sons
                Awwww, mom, not in front of our friends!

I’m not an outdoorsy person
I’m making memories. 

Please - stay in touch. I'll be slicing each Tuesday. Look for my insipid humor and nonsense at least that often.

This post will go "live" early, so that I can make sure someone else also has the link to post for me, in case I can't link up from the campground. (I'm looking at you, Jess!)

  1. Maria, Thanks for your spirited participation in the SOLSC and the feedback. I guess going camping with kids is a bit like being a writer -both takes us out of our comfort zone on occasions. Well done on both counts!
