Poetry Friday Word for Tomorrow, plus triple trouble
Irrelephant said it.
To my post on Tuesday.
“Let’s make a list of the clouds…” That one really caught me—poetic, surreal, and very enticing. You ought to save that for a Poetry Friday.
Per Irrelephant’s idea, the Poetry Friday WORD for Tomorrow is…CLOUD. Feel free to use it in your blog post tomorrow, in whatever fluffy white pillow you choose…poem, story, photo, Gabcast, mashed potato sculpture of mountain ranges, airing of dirty laundry, recipe for triple-chocolate fudge….
These days are just packed. This is Hell Week for me, with appointments and field trips, birthday parties and volunteering, carnivals and soccer games, and enough projects at work to drown me. You should see my calendar…it’s the scariest gdamn thing. I have written on each calendar day to the minute when I have to be at work, around all the other stuff that’s going on. I got up before 5 a.m. today for work, to ensure I can make my dentist appointment at 8 a.m. (but haven't done a good job of flossing, and yes, the hygienist should yell at me, I deserve it). I have post-it notes lining my pc monitor, yelling out times and directions and call so-and-so and RememberThis!
Plus there’s other stuff goin’ down that’s both elating and frightening…I’ll write on’t soon.
Need your input here….
Girlchild was invited to 3 birthday parties, all happening in the next week or so. THREE. For girls. Turning 7 years of age.
Two parties she can’t make (Hell Week for her, too), but they’re good enough friends that she wants to give them gifts anyway.
What can I possibly find that’s fun, affordable, unique, and age-appropriate for three girls? Suggestions?
