It’s Monday morning, and the annoying melody crescendos while Steph struggles to find her phone.
“Where is that frickin’ thing?”
Steph finds the buzzing monster buried deep in the covers by her feet.
She considers her schedule for the day, “Today, I need to workout on the elliptical machine, pack my lunch, pack my son’s lunch, take a shower, brush my teeth, get ready for work, drive to work, call ABC, do XYZ, drive home, fix dinner, clean up, do a load of laundry…”
Pausing, she thought about her plan to write bravely in the Festival of Words, a blogging challenge hosted by busy bunch of people over in Mumbai at Write Tribe.
“Ack! When am I going to find the time to draft the post for Day 4 and follow the prompt to ‘feature a day in your life or someone else’s life?'”
This is when Steph realized that she could have saved the fabulous free verse she wrote with luxurious abandon during her vacation this past weekend for today’s blog post.
Steph rolls over and falls back to sleep.
