I am poemless.

My mother-in-law has been visiting for a week.

Received three poetry rejections and one acceptance.

School starts back up this week.

I've had enough with teacher meetings, meetings, meetings.

Ate a yummy omellette at Foster's Market this morning.

My daughter just turned 7, my son turns 4 in a week.

I am thinking about advertising on this blog - what do you think?

I am tired from the back-to-school hubub.

Is that how you spell hubub?

I am poemless.

I think you should advertise under the I Power Blogger button. May I suggest Google Adwords? If you ever decide to, I could easily do it for you.

Also, if you see a big blue section in your dashboard, click the link. This will bring you to the new Blogger BETA.

Love your "poemless tidbits!!
MIL, hope that's good.
1 out 4 ain't bad, as "they" say.
Yuck to meetings, meetinigs, meetings!!
Yummy is always good, even if it's an omellette.
Great ages for kids!!
Do you get paid for advertising?
Hubub, spelled right or wrong is still hubub.
You are never poemless!

You do get paid for advertising. Although, I've only got $1.02 of revenue.

Hi Roxx - welcome,

Whadya know! It is a word - but I spelled it wrong according to

Main Entry: hub·bub
Pronunciation: 'h&-"b&b
Function: noun
Etymology: perhaps of Irish origin; akin to Scottish Gaelic ub ub, interjection of contempt

Or, maybe a stick of gum.

Hey Julia,

Had to check in to see what's up. Congrats on the acceptance, and if you can't wallpaper a few rooms with rejections, you aren't getting rejected enough.

Congratulations on the acceptance. For much of my career, I've felt that with article proposals, one out of ten does the trick.

Hubbub--I think.

If you ever think you want to put out a book, you should use Lulu.

Thanks Malaika,
I've run out of walls! :)

Hi Peggy - 1 to 10 sounds about right. Although, I just had a fluke - another acceptance. So that's 2 out of 5 . . . and you're right about hubbub.

I've looked into that Jake, Lulu looks great!

Hi Peggy - I have no idea what happened to your link - woops. I'll add it again. And thanks!
