When Christy and Jennie Disagree

An excerpt from a real conversation between Christy and Jennie:

Setting: the mall, watching a video on a screen.

Christy: That looks like Justin Bieber with shorter hair.
Jennie: Ha, Justin Bieber with shorter hair.
C: It really looks like Bieber, though.
J: That is Justin Bieber with shorter hair! He got a haircut and he's singing with Rascal Flatts!
(both watching video)
J: He does not look cuter with shorter hair.
C: I know, I know. He's cute with whatever hair. He looks cute all the time.
J: No, I said he does not look cuter with shorter hair.
C: Well, I guess we'll just agree to disagree.

FREE ebook download

I finally did it. I published an ebook of my poems (you can read a bunch of my poetry at my secret writing blog). Those poems and more are now available for download as an ebook here. And, for the month of May, it's available for FREE using this coupon code: ZX95YSo go ahead and download, read and enjoy!
If you end up downloading (and it's free, so why not?) I really hope you like the poems!
So... now I'm off to work on the next ebook...

More Texts From My Mother

(I already forewarned her this was going to happen.)

This past weekend, Jennie, KatieClack & I had our amazing big event: concert & silent auction to raise money for charity: water. And what success! We have online donations totaling $548, which will provide 27 people with clean water who did not previously have access to it! (And that's not even all of the money from the concert!)

But, as you can imagine, it was a stressful weekend. So my mother texted me a message that I'm sure she hoped would be calming. And yes, I felt much calmer when I finished laughing after I read it. Here you go!
From: Mom & Dad
My prayer for u is to ... Relax and be filled with joy, as you allow God to bring the blessings. I PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ENJOY EVERYTHING TDAY .... FYI I DON'T know why caps were on or how they came off.
I love u and am proud of u.

Ahhhhhh, Moms are the best!
When I told her I was going to blog that text, she wrote back: Is nothing sacred? Who knew I was so quotable!
Well, Mom, we all know.
