  1. Cool…!

    Write on!

  2. Hi Carolyn,

    Rumi has wonderful poetry and wonderful sayings.

    Are you writing?!!

    All the best, Andy

  3. Yes, I’m writing. I wrote all morning in addition to playing and doing school with my 3year old daughter — oh, and folding laundry and teaching aerobics. The excitement never ends! I allow myself to check on e-mail during lunch. If I have time, then I check in on Facebook. After I eat, I go back to playing and writing — mostly writing since she’s gotten to the point that she likes to play with her Barbie’s by herself. After my older children get home I’m usually busy with homework and running all over the county to three different sport practices and games. I write again after they’re in bed, then I start it all over again at 5:15am (or 6:15 if my oldest daughter doesn’t have show choir practice that morning).

    I know — WAY too much info =) Told you I was ‘wordy’ ;D

    Write on!!
