Kibbles and Bits

Ahhh, spring. Still feels a few weeks away.


For the last few weeks—since AWP DC—I've had a persistent cough. A deep, chesty, uncontrollable wet cough that sounds like I’m coughing up a lung (sounds much worse than it is). I rarely get sick, and when I do I fight illness off fairly quickly. But this cough has been a drag.

Well, I am finally getting over my cold/bronchitis/walking pneumonia/whooping cough. After a visit to my doctor, who gave me antibiotics, an anti-inflammatory, and chest X-ray, I checked out OK and should feel better soon.

Last night, I crashed at 8:30 p.m. and got a full eight hours of sleep. I feel better than I have in weeks. Probably should have done that in the first place.

It’s a hard lesson to learn that as sole support of the family, staying healthy and balanced has to be my #1 priority.


This weekend, lots of play dates and house projects planned. And the kids want to see the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie.


Poetry to-do list

1. Write three poems (I have three swirling around in my head)
2. Submit poems to two publications
3. Organize my desk
4. Mass Poetry Fest planning

I've been up to 2 a.m. every night for the last two weeks and then getting up at 8 a.m. to be at work by 9. This weekend, I'm sleeping until noon. Feel better!

Thanks Collin! I'm on the mend.

Have you been working on revisions? Get some rest this weekend. :)
