Today is not a writing day.
OF COURSE there are a gazillion thoughts swirling in my personal pensieve, but a l a s (she says with back of hand across her forehead)……….we have a dozen high school girls spending the weekend at our house and I’m cleaning like a madwoman (because cleaning renders me a mad woman)……
…. and working on the "to do" list Tad has
compiled for me helped me compile (which, interestingly, does NOT contain "blogging"), and I’m happy to say things are actually getting checked off (waaahoooo!). I know, role reversal….it works for us.
… and FINALLY completing the invitations for Rachel’s Valentine Tea, this year marks her twelfth! (More on that in a future post….). Completing them includes getting them in the mail, so that’s where I’m off to now.
Anyhoo, in the meantime, I’m calling on "Little Girl Robin" to help out with a post today. I hurriedly scanned a lovely selection of prose and poetry, and for the life of me, I’m thinking I was one confused kid. Hope it gives you a giggle, as for me, it just makes me shake my head ever so slowly.
You were such a poet. cute.
Oh HEY – I just noticed your new little ditty under Pensieve. Very funny.
How sweet. Your flair with words started young!
But, did I understand you right – you have a dozen high school girls spending the weekend at your house? Have you gone mad? Have you lost your mind?
Oh, Robin! I’ll certainly be praying for you guys this weekend! You are a BRAVE woman.
Of course, I don’t know who I’m kidding – I’ll be there in a few years I’m sure 😉
Karmyn, I was wondering how long it’d take for anyone to notice…you win the prize AGAIN!
Susan, oops, my bad. It’s only TEN (lol). Trust me, it’s easier than HALF that many preschoolers–been there, done that…have just as many tee shirts ;).
I sure hope your poetry has improved over the years. LOL!
Cute story about about being a camel. Umm.. there are some other thoughts that have run through my mind too. 😉
That is so cute..I love the story about the camel, but poor camel, stuck in a zoo.
That is really cute! It’s nice that you have that to show to your kids. :O)
Now I’m curious about your other thoughts, Mike…
Claudia, can’t you just hear his pain?
MaryMert, You bet, they laugh AT me, not WITH me :).
You clean house AFTER the high school girls are at your house.
Your way with words was always there, wasn’t it?
Swampy, wow, you’re up and at ’em EARLY…and you commented while I was replying to comments, lol.
Get this, so far, these girls are a DREAM! I have a crush on all of ’em–they LIKE to talk to grown-ups. 🙂
Of COURSE you are a royal camel!!
Looking forward to the Valentine Tea post!
Enjoy your weekend, and let us know about it!!
Wow, having that many girls at my house into a frenzy. Thank goodness I have a son…
Neat idea to post something from your childhood…I didn’t take anything from my childhood when we moved to the US…
Blessings on you weekend…
Well, what a little scribe you were!
So what happened?
I’m JUST KIDDING!!! [ducking]
Happy housecleaning, Madwoman.
the camel piece explains some of the multiple personalities I’ve accused you of 🙂
Have fun with the girls!
I had 3 last Sat. & that was enough for me!
It’s the calm before the storm right now, so I’m sneaking in a reply to y’all. Girls aren’t back home, and all my boys are at a basketball game. I will not tell you what I’ve been up to, but let’s just say I’m glad it’s done ;).
Stephanie, you have GOT to do this for little Bethany :). It’s a fantastic tradition, guess I should start writing about it.
Iris, it’s really odd to think about moving to an entirely new country, so many “consequences” of that choice, as you’ve mentioned here. I find the older I get, the more I cling to the past in some respects. Well, maybe not cling, but appreciate. Yeah, that’s a better word.
Carol, No need to duck, you made me grin, so that just means you owe me coffee for the insult or something.
LCO, I prefer to think of “it” as multi-dimensional. I just sound like I have MPD when I write ’cause I’m all over the place. Like to keep you guessing, I guess ;).
Robin, I just went by Peter’s and read…..well, you know. Just let me say “EWWWWWWW!” You’ve got to be kidding me! That’s just beyond disgusting! It’s horrible!
Oh yeah, and thank you for leaving it on Pete’s site instead of mine 😉
So you ended up in a Zoo eh? Serves you right, you vain little camel.
Hey I noticed the sub-header a while ago, but didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to let on that it was one of my favourite fantasies. How do you feel about having it up there now huh?
This thing is still losing the details, what gives?
I love it! You were talented even then.
You’re gonna love this, I just went to a TypePad blog that I’ve never been to before, and it had my details!
Have you raised a ticket yet?
Just checking something…..
Ah-Ha! It works! If you hit Post after you’ve written your comment, it tells you that an error occurred and a Name and Address are required. Nothing unusual there, but when it redisplays, all the details are there, Try it.
so you were born this way!
hope the cleaning madness is a fun kind of madness, not the messy hair, foaming at the mouth kind. (i am picturing the crazy locked up wife in Jane Eyre – that had to be the maddest women ever – wow! you did read Jane Eyre when you were younger right? now if you haven’t – girl, put down that vacuum and pick it up. it was written for girls like us. but i am sure you did. an inspired, precocious little poet like you must have been reading the Bronte sisters.)
oh and thanks so much for cybersqueal! 🙂 truly that was the greatest blizzard o’ internet love I will probably ever experience! 🙂
Those are some Killer poems. More poetry on the way?
I’m sure this is fabulous copy, but I’m getting up there, and I can’t read your precious scanned words. How about typing them out for us “older folks?”
These are great little snippets. Precocious little girl, weren’t you?
