In honor of my rejections for the month of February (I didn’t make 30, but I did get 10, I think) I got taken out for fajitas tonight. That was cool.

Today was a day with one rejection, one acceptance (I think…) and one poem getting moved up to the second round of readings for the magazine I submitted it to. That’s the first of those I have gotten.

I also got another piece out when I got home — had to drive Newell to work today, so mostly worked on the Scavenger Hunt.

Still not 100%, so I am going to be short tonight. Since I wasn’t home, I got no cleaning done. Sorry. OH! Except for the backseat of Newell’s car…because he’s not allowed to do it himself any more. 😉

Poem, huh? Oh, okay….

Forever At Play


Forever at Play

The children reach
extended hands
for toys eternally
outside their grasp.
They freeze mid-step,
head cocked as if
to hear a comrade’s
The airplane held
beyond the reach
of all below strains
for the freedom
of the air they
cannot feel.
Forever at play,
yet eternally




Today I cleaned ― car

Today I weighed ― 183. 4

Today I wrote/revised ― Scavenger Hunt questions/tumblr entries
