I underestimated this Friday night.
I often lump this night in with the rest of the weekend, the time when I'm working on to-do lists, getting things done that I don't have time for during the work week, and, of course, relaxing. Lesson plans, meal plans, outfit plans...all of these happen on Saturday and Sunday. My slice would fit nicely on my weekend list. It's just that...

Friday nights are different. Friday nights are for movies, watching the DVR, and laying in my pjs with nothing to do. Fridays nights I'm TIRED. Too tired for lists or much else.
I forgot to add that in when I "planned" to do my slice tonight. It seemed to make sense that I'd get to it after school...then after dinner...then...as I'm about to fall asleep sitting up, I remember! My slice!
