If you’ve got something to share, or confess, please leave a note for me or Carolee.
And now, onto the confessions…
Thanks to everyone who has stopped by Kristi’s blog, Goodnight Mom. Kristi’s daughter Eva is resting comfortably after surgery. Feel free to go by her blog and show support. And, wish happy birthday to Jack, who turns 4 on Tuesday.
For those who don’t know, Kristi, also known as Special K, is my best friend. I’ve known her from back in the day, circa 1987. Gosh, it’s been 20 years. Love to you, Kristi.
Eva’s experience brought me back to Ella’s heart surgery when she was two weeks old. And I live in fear that one day we’ll have to deal with some form of illness, but at this moment she is completely healthy and a genuine handful as the baby of the family.
Nothing makes you let go of your old self image more than watching your child face a life-threatening crisis. It stays with you forever. Kristi, just one more thing in common.
Speaking of surgery, my husband is having his ACL replaced on Wednesday. They’re taking a tendon from a cadaver and attaching it to his knee. I know this is done routinely and successfully, but the whole idea continues to freak me out. He damaged his knee playing basketball a few months ago; this after blowing out his Achilles tendon last year.
He’s in denial but after two injuries in two years, it’s time to give up hoops for something less strenuous, like darts.
On to something cheerier. Today, I looked at book cover options for my first collection!!! I narrowed down 20 options to around six. Soon I’ll send them to the publisher and maybe they can make the decision for me because I’m really having a hard time choosing a cover. They’re THAT good! Thanks EDS.
Tomorrow, I’ll send in final manuscript revisions to the publisher. Woo hoo!
Lastly, I registered here. How cool is that—I’m a registered poet! A photo and bio should be up soon.
