31 days of writing, wow!

Day 31 of 31 - yahoo!
Here we are, March 31st.  I did it!

I want to personally thank Stacey and Ruth for hosting this challenge, which must be a ton of work on their end.  Thank you.

I am proud of myself for taking on this challenge that is definitely out of my comfort zone.  What did I accomplish this month?

- I think, most importantly, I took some time back for myself.  Writing allowed for some 'me' time, something I'm sorely lacking.  Next project, getting my exercise routine and diet in check.

- I very much enjoyed reading the other blogs, but found I just didn't have the time to read and comment on as many as I wished.

- I enjoyed the distraction of writing while dealing with the most frustrating month of my professional career (not an exaggeration .

- I really enjoy putting the memories of my family in text.  I have always been good at taking pictures and I remember the stories, but having them in writing is different.

- I need to learn how to be reflective on my own teaching.  It's an area I want to improve on, but just don't have the energy at this particular moment.

- Will I continue to slice on Tuesdays?  Sure, why not!  See you all in a couple of days.


  1. Congratulations on completing the challenge! It's been a wonderful month writing and reading with you.

  2. Woo hoo! It's been a great month. Like you, I've been inspired to be more reflective on my teaching. Some how I'm going to start. I hope to see you on Tuesdays.

  3. Yea! So glad you're hooked and will continue on Tuesdays, Rachel. :)

  4. What a great accomplishment! See you (or read your blog) on Tuesdays!
