Daily writing took a back seat to more important things over the past three weeks, but now that I’m back home and in the classroom, I’m hoping to find some solace in returning to the writing. So far today, I’ve written a couple of posts for my professional blog, and I could easily persuade myself that I’ve met my quota for the day.
But I want to write here as well because I remain committed to my promise to myself that I will write a post a day. And my reward for this will be the earrings I promised myself as a writing reward several months back, before I began devoting so much of my time and energy to caring for my parents during my dad’s illness. I’m buying myself a pair of earrings from Uncommon Goods. They’re kind of a joke I like to think of myself sharing with my dad since he often told me that I never listened to a thing he said. I think he’d appreciate them.
