Add to that, preparations for out of town visitors to celebrate my 13 year old's birthday party and my 10 year old's graduation from elementary school, plus final revisions on two picture book manuscripts that I am taking with me to the SCBWI conference in Orlando in two weeks, and you should have a pretty good picture of my current state of mind.
But hey, just in case that picture's still not in focus, my daughter Miranda (the 10 year old graduate) is today's guest poet, here with the ditty du jour:
My mom lost her keys. I found
Them with ease. Turns out
In the car.

This scatterbrained mother could not be more proud. Happy Graduation, Sweetheart! I see a bright and creative future ahead of you... but don't even think about dating or borrowing the car keys for another 20 years. (Just kidding... 12-15 will do.)
Anyone else planning to be at the SCBWI conference in Orlando? Would love to meet up with new Poetry Friday friends.
And speaking of Poetry Friday, don't forget to check out today's round up, hosted by the delightful Jama, at Jama's Alphabet Soup!
