2014sliceoflife_hI welcome my third year with the daily slice of life.  It is a much needed “kick in the pants” for me.   This school year reminds me of a saying that my mother used, I am at sixes and sevens, meaning a sense of confusion and disorder.  It’s not so much confusion as disorder in trying to balance work, home, grad school and family.  By the way the origin of the saying  comes from a complicated dice game.  Chaucer  and Shakespeare used it.  The daily slice of life will give me a focus to reflect on my day, a mood booster, and encouragement and often laughter.  Yeah for March!
