I'm not new to talking, sharing ideas, or stating my opinion, especially stating my opinion! After all, I taught elementary school for 30 years! However, my audience has typically been smaller,just family, the classroom, or just talking to myself!

My blog has two goals: be an outlet for sharing thoughts on writing children's books and the path to publication (got my fingers crossed that I'll get there) and a place to chronicle my journey of losing my sight. Sometimes I imagine these two paths will overlap .

Write From The Soul

Here are some Easter funnies. Well, they were meant to be Friday Funnies, but I kind of got busy on Friday shopping at the Farmer's Market and then cooking, so now they are Sunday funnies- oops, those are what come in the Sunday paper. Darn! I can't win. Just enjoy :-) And thanks to my friend Sandy in Chicago who sent them to me. (BTW.... if you need a realtor in Chicago, Sandy is awesome!!! I'll give you her number.)

  1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

  2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

  3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I  was younger.

  4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.  (LOVE this one!!)

  5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?  (Ain't it the truth!!)

  6. Even when opportunity knocks, you still have to get off your ass and open the door.
7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure we know how to get out of our  own neighborhood.

  8. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

  9. Bad decisions make good stories.  (Especially for writers!!)

10. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

  11. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away     (my absolute favorite!!)

  12. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

  13. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

  14. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

  15. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

  16. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

  17. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent someone from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

  18. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

  19. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

   20. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my last dollar everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!
