Tweet, Tweets, Tweeting, Twitted??

Instead of my normal Book Nook today, I have a list to share. Maybe I’ll post a Book Nook later…I do have some neat books to share with you! Wonderful Bex tagged me for the Great 8s meme, but I already wrote about it this month. I’ve been resisting Twitter, even though some of my favorite bloggers are on Twitter!

One of the reasons I don’t sign up is because my days as a stay at home mom are just not that exciting! Here’s what I would probably tweet:

  • Forgot to add that second cup of water to the rice…dinner was a bit on the crunchy side.
  • Emptied those pockets of Kleenex BEFORE putting pants in the washing machine. Score!
  • Postponed call to mortgage consultant due to a developing situation. Poopy diaper needed immediate attention.
  • I have the “My kitchen counter is not level, look at that puddle on the floor” blues.
  • Realized cranking my 80’s station in the mini-van makes me look like I’m a 40 year old mom. Realized I am a 40 year old mom.
  • Living on the edge equals grocery shopping with a preschooler and toddler.
  • It’s after 3 pm…let crabby time commence.
  • Washable markers, my foot. Had to break out the cleaner with bleach.

Eight tweets, just for you, Bex!

And in honor of my SAHM-ness, over in my sidebar I have a dish washing quote from Agatha Christie and a poem about dusting. Enjoy!

I changed my sidebar. Here is the quote: The best time for planning a book is while you’re doing the dishes. ~Agatha Christie

Here is the poem:

Dusting
by Marilyn Nelson
Thank you for these tiny
particles of ocean salt,
pearl-necklace viruses,
winged protozoans:
for the infinite,
intricate shapes
of submicroscopic
living things.

For algae spores
and fungus spores,
bonded by vital
mutual genetic cooperation,
spreading their
inseparable lives
from equator to pole.

My hand, my arm,
make sweeping circles.
Dust climbs the ladder of light.
For this infernal, endless chore,
for these eternal seeds of rain:
Thank you. For dust.
