Today, I am starting a new challenge... writing from A to Z for the month of April.
Today, I join it with my usual Stream of Consciousness Sunday post, where fadra's prompt is "I don't wanna..."
I don't wanna pack up and move. Even though I hate this place, I hate packing and moving and reorganizing even more. But I know that any place will be less stressful and easier to manage than this place.
I don't wanna retwist my hair this morning. But I know it is easier to deal with during the work week than my regular 'fro.
I don't wanna deal with allergies tonight. For some reason, I am pretty much fine during the day, but, like clockwork, when I lay my head down on the pillow to sleep the itching and stuffiness begin. I have tried new pillows, washing the sheets more often, and taking meds, but I always wake myself up in the night rubbing my nose for relief.
I don't wanna wait two more months to see my newborn nephew. But, I can't easily get down to Texas for a weekend to see him since I have to coach track meets each weekend until the end of May. Perhaps it is time to play a little hooky.
I don't wanna feel like blogging is a chore. But, I also don't want to go through long spells (months) of not writing like I did the last few years. Hopefully, this letter theme idea will give me some new juice to keep going in April. I have already written each day this year, and want to see how long I can keep this up.
That is my five-minutes stream of consciousness post. You can see others' writings or join in at all.things.fadra. You can also see the directions for how to go about the writing.
