jillypoet: mom trying to write

Each day I wish I had invented waterproof sticky notes (for shower inspiration) or pen-friendly diapers to get down all my quirky thoughts that I am sure are relevant and publishable. And so God (actually another writer-mommy) sent me The Blog.

Auld lang...

I couldn't let December go by without at least one post! And it's a good one--something great to end the year on. My poem, I am No Mary. You Are No Lamb, is going to be published on mamazine! I have sent out a lot of poems in the past four months and it is good to finally have at least one answer--and a positive one, at that!

I'm not one for resolutions, but I do plan to write more in '08, to listen less to the news, listen more to my children and entertain all offers to ship my husband to Antartica on a slow boat. Oops. Did I say that or think that? Today is one of those days where I imagine my former boyfriends are all wonderful dads doing wonderful things with their children and families, while I am stuck with the boob behind door #3, the boob I chose, nonetheless.

Never fear readers (if any of you are still out there...) there will be more poems to come!
