Life Bubbles #SOL18

It’s Tuesday! A writing and commenting day I look forward to every week.

Time for the Slice of Life Challenge hosted by Two Writing Teachers.


I am up incredibly early today. It is the second day in a row I am up at 4 am. I have had coffee and I am thinking about the day.

Yesterday was a busy one. Today will be too. I have happily engulfed myself in the laid back schedule of summer which requires minimal driving, lots of reading and writing, rest, and exercise.

Today is different.

Today I have to go to work. I have to tear myself from my new “normal” routine and transition back to “work” routine and I am not happy about it.

It will be fine once I am on the road. I will naturally morph back into my coaching role today at the literacy retreat/workshop today and tomorrow. I will listen to my podcasts to and from work and make notes.

Don’t misunderstand. I love the people at this workshop and will be delighted to spend the days with them but there will be a part of me all day longing to be with my husband and children.

Today will fuel my writing and my plans for coaching for the upcoming school year. I have big plans, but I am not quite so ready to think about them yet.

I like my bubbles. Most of the time the home bubble and the work bubble only exist next to each other. We will see if they collide today or continue to be friends.

  1. Ah that crazy balance we have to navigate. Hard, I remember it well. Always a challenge though…
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, Tammy, Enjoy today and every day 🙂


    • that is exactly how I feel about this week. I kept looking at the calendar knowing that this week was a pivotal week and now it doesn’t feel like it should be here yet. Thanks for the encouragement!


  2. The transition to summer and then back to work is always a challenge. I love the image of the bubbles – separate and colliding. I’m with you, eager to think about next year, but not quite ready!

  3. I love the bubble idea; it is very creative. I hope you enjoy yourself once you are at the writer’s retreat. I also find it hard to stop and start routines. Having been away most of last week for a soccer tournament in the Twin Cities, I am trying to get back into a routine for my summer grad courses… far today, I’ve just been procrastinating! I hope your bubbles continue to be friends!

  4. I understand, I’ll be headed back to school in a few weeks…generally I like to leave a little wiggle room of separation between work and home, but once in a while they collide and make me feel temporarily a little out of sorts….oh and I also wanted to let you know I’ve migrated my artsychiccreations blog to a new domain name and url…good luck and have fun,I I hope your work and home bubble will still be friends in the end 😉☀️


  5. Hi

    Thank you. I am happy to see your  writing. It gives me a thoughtful thinking and am  happy for that. That is always my intention to see a post that gives me happiness.

    Am happy  to share at least a part of that happiness and love here as am  writing now.

    What you said in your post  is true, sometimes just a drop of that magical post in your blog  is enough to get a person to be happy.

    As I read toward the end. My mind just told me is a dream. I later checked the heading to know if the topic was dream.

    Good one

    Well, If I wish to be happy is inevitable to keep the vibes flowing.
