Slice of Life Ten - Exhaustion at MRA


Slice of Life is sponsored every Tuesday by Stacey and Ruth from Two Writing Teachers. For the month of March we are challenging ourselves to write a Slice A Day.


Sunlight hits my eyes.

They crack open.
Look at the clock.
8 am?

My body groans.
Four hours of sleep…
Three and ½, really.
Not enough.

I pull myself up.
Stumble to the shower.
Wish that the warm water.
Could magically restore.
Healing water.

Getting ready for my first session.
Wondering how I will ever drive

Five
Hours
Home.

Alone.

Questioning my wisdom.


And then, remembering.
A late night full of…

Laughter
Stories
Friendship
Hugs


Yep, even when looking
At my bloodshot eyes.
I know.
I’d do it all again.
In a heartbeat.
