Good Saturday to everyone! Hope everyone is well and happy today. I woke up with a big ol' headache. I'm trying to kill it with a strong cup of coffee. That usually works. I have been worrying about everyone and everything and I think that's why I have the headache. I am going to try and take it easy this weekend. I do have to do alot of cleaning and arranging as my apartment has gotten in a bit of disarray since I got back from Florida. I have had a huge problem with organization, especially since I have had my brain surgeries. I spend alot of my day trying to "find things" and "fix mistakes" that I make from forgetting things and losing things. It has gotten almost to a crisis point. I am going to have to make my living situation more organized. Period. If anyone has any suggestions on organization, I would really appreciate it. Krissy is giving me pointers, and I really do appreciate them!
It's time for "Wordplay" this morning! It feels good to get back into the swing of the game =). I found a neat site that has five spelling quizzes. They have 50 words in each quiz. I took the first three quizzes. I missed four on the first. Three on the second and two on the third. I find it interesting that when I see two words together they both seem to look like they are spelled correctly, or they both seem to be spelled incorrectly. LOL Ask me to spell a word on a piece of paper or type a word on the computer and I have no problem, but on these tests it was a bit tricky at times and I had to do some thinking. Let me know how you did! I'm not asking you to do all five or even three like I did (unless you want to!). I just want to see how everyone fares on one of them!! What words did you have problems with? Was this a hard test? Thanks for playing along!
I had promised a few week's back to post poems that were submitted to a previous "Wordplay" before I went to Florida. I was unable to post them because Chelsea went into labor earlier than expected. Below are these poems. Thanks to those who contributed!
The first one is from Barbara at Confessions of An Angel Waitress. I wrote back Barbara after I received this poem and she told me Ezra truly DID exist! This poem gave me a big smile and laugh! Thanks, Barb!
I'll just Have The Chicken
Ezra who is three years old came to visit me.
I was working at my job
Waitressing for a mob.
I said, "What would you like for lunch?"
And he replied to me,
"I would like some chicken please."
And sat down ready to eat.
His order was taking way too long
To come out of the kitchen.
He was getting restless and
Started causing tension.
He could not stay there in his chair.
He began to wander.
Introduced himself to everyone
And could not wait for the chicken to be done.
I went over to him to help the situation
And asked him this simple question,
"Ezra, do you have a case of wiggle worms?"
To which he simply smiled, "No thank you,
not today, I'll just have the chicken!"
The second and final poem I received is from Krissy at Sometimes I Think. Thanks, Krissy!
This Love Overflows
Deep down inside
and pushes it's way out
this love overflows.
Who would have thought
who would have known
we'd be here today
I'm off to go do some of that organizing that I was talking about. Ah, what to do first??? Have a good weekend, everyone! xox
