Still on the mend – coughing a lot, sleeping little, and totally out of gas. Speaking of gas, how about those prices? And if you need diesel (for the truck) and Premium (for the Mini), it’s really a killer.

I had a hard time being inspired today, which is what makes this daily poem practice a good thing for me to do. Writers all know, even if they don’t like it, that you cannot wait for inspiration to strike before you write. Over and over I’ve been told, you have to sit your butt…
Latte hurt her leg doing something yesterday so today became a day to try and keep Latte subdued and catch up on some of my errands. I took the Brew Babes (my new nickname for the pooches) to Petsmart. I think they should add a fitting room to their stores. My girls were very relaxed…
