Friday Blogging

The Little One has been home sick the past two days.  It's making it hard to get any work in.  I did use her as a photographer yesterday.  I'll be updating my head shot for MWLM.  The problem - I really don't like how I photograph.  The Little One took about 20 pictures of me.  I have it limited to two and I've been asking people to vote on which one they like best.  After checking my current head shot, at least I know either new shot will be a huge improvement.

 

Then this morning I had to blog for MWLM - Spring Book Fair.

 

Hey josiejunk I'm listening to the radio as I work.  I heard Beth and Bill have blogged about the man girdle.

Third Grade Math Test

Yesterday the Little One didn't have any math homework, because they had a test.

 

"It was a third grade test, Mom.  And it was hard."

 

I went to pick her up today because Go-Go had book club after school.  I asked the Little One about the test.  "It wasn't a third grade test.  But I forget what it's called."

 

When we got home I found the test in her folder - Third Quarter Test.  And for someone who told her mother it was hard, she got a 95% only one question wrong, borrowing in subtraction.  I'm always catching those mistakes in her homework too.  She doesn't borrow and reverses the numbers instead, subtracting the smaller number from the bigger one.

 

I took the test out and said,  This was the hard test?  And you got a 95%.  She insists she guessed on a lot of them, but you have to show your work, and everything was in order.  She needs to give herself more credit.

Preliminary Acceptance #2

A few years ago I sent my poem "Three" to June Cotner, thinking it would work well in her Birthday Blessings anthology.  I got a preliminary acceptance back, which means the poem fits in the anthology but may be cut if other poems come in with a better fit.

 

I wrote "Three" just before the Little One was three with her in mind.  Last year she turned seven.  After she broke her foot, I came up with an acrostic for Seven that fit her well and complements the Three acrostic well too.  June is still looking to fill the Birthday Blessings anthology so I sent it off.

 

Imagine my surprise when I get my SASE this morning.  "Seven" has been given a preliminary acceptance.  Yay! for Unapologetic Woman: Poems and Reflections.  I went to June's site:  www.junecotner.com .  I had to look up what this anthology encompassed.  I can see why she accepted it for a different anthology than it was submitted for:

 

"UNAPOLOGETIC WOMAN: POEMS AND REFLECTIONS The idea for this book came from a 20-something friend of mine. She wanted a book that she could relate to and that would draw on the popularity of the Andrews McMeel book Believing in Ourselves. The preliminary chapters include: 1) Love; 2) Relationships; 3) Ordinary Life; 4) Children; 5) Friendship; 6) Image; 7) Strength; 8) Self-Discovery; 9) Heartache and Healing; 10) Reflections; and 11) Inspiration"
