List

I started thinking about writing this post on the way home from work today and said to myself, (what a wonderful world...no, that's not what I said) "I just need to write a list post today."  Because that is how my brain is thinking.  In list format.  Which then made me think of this...

I'm making a list
I'm making a list of things I must say
For politeness,
And goodness and kindness and gentleness
Sweetness and rightness:
Hello
Pardon me
How are you?
Excuse me
Bless you
May I?
Thank you
Goodbye
If you know some that I've forgot,
Please stick them in your eye!
Shel Silverstein (Where the Sidewalk Ends)

...and the fact that I love Shel Silverstein.  I have found myself quoting him at the most random times before...("I cannot go to school today...")

But that is all COMPLETELY beside the point.

I have quite a few BIG things in the works...and if you are on my facebook friend then you already know that I have been selected as the Friday feature writer on A Little Etsy Love.  SUPER excited about it.  Like, I wanted to scream out loud and jump up and down and down and do a little (ok BIG) happy dance when they emailed me.

It came at a good time, too, because I was slightly down in the dumpster today.  Not dumpster.  Dumps.  And it was my own fault.  Don't you hate it when you do that to yourself?

And now I haven't written a list at all.  Imagine that.  Humph.  Maybe tomorrow.
