Maybe I Could Write About...

I'm stuck.  It's getting late, and I'm stuck.

I had plans to write an ode to coffee telling you about my great, deep love my favorite drink.

The little guy said something super cute.  I didn't write it down.  I wish I could remember what it was because I really wanted to write about it.

There was a small crisis with son #2, but it's a little too fresh.  I wish I was ready to write about that...

My husband suddenly developed a tickle in his throat and coughed from 2:00am until we got up to start the day.  It's been a bit of a rough one.  I could write about that, but I'm too tired.

The oldest boy's two best friends both have parents who are having problems.  My boy is talking about it, and I love him for it.  If I could get into the moment, I would write about it.

It was a great day overall, which I didn't expect with the night we had.  I would love to write tell you about it, but I don't have a good bit to share that would illustrate the whole.   

Our third grader claimed to be the favorite son tonight as he dipped up his ice cream.  It was funny, but I don't exactly remember the details, and I have too little brain power to make them up.  I won't try to write about it.

So, it is day 28, and I am stuck.


  1. You definitely don't seem stuck to me. There are many possibilities and I like seeing all the happenings you could have written about in just one 24 hour period. My favorite - the third grader who claimed to be the favorite son.

  2. This reminded me of the conversations I often have with students who don’t know what to write about. They can recap everything but not say much about any one thing. We all have those days!

  3. Loved it and want to hear more about all of them. Get some honey and echinachea for T so you can sleep and report back on all these possibilities. And it is good for your little middle to believe he is the favorite. He would sometimes have my vote!
