I promise this is not an attempt to rip off Beyonce. If she knew Owen, she I think she would understand. She looks like that kind of woman. Owen REALLY loves lemons, as you may or may not know. ALL kinds of lemons —
But he’ll take a lime ANY TIME–
–even if it zaps him back!
I have the flu this week, which makes everything harder especially cooking. No, maybe especially running after an Owen who keeps running out the front door is harder. Particularly when I can’t find him at the recycling bin – and then he emerges from our renters’ door carrying a stolen soda bottle!! Ooooh noooo Owen! Very embarrassing. Yep, that’s definitely more stressful…
Best to share the limes.
Happy Day-After Valentines to all my readers! Please take the time this month to love me a little: drop me a message about what YOU like best in the embracingchaos.net posts. What would you like to see more of?
Send your comments THIS FEBRUARY to firstname.lastname@example.org, and in thanks I will email to you my brand new, just invented RECIPE for this delicious Carrot Cake made for Owen and his dad (oh yeah – and me). Yep, it’s “paleo” and yep it’s very moist and very good. (Ok, true, the icing is a cheat. Owen can’t eat much of that.)
Goal: once I get blog readership up to 2,000 followers, I will be positioned to go for book publication. Embracing Chaos, the book, predates this blog – it’s all written and ready to go, full of the hilarious and heartbreaking and outrageous stories that are part of life with Owen. Just need a little thing like an agent and a publisher to spread the joy. And agents and publishers want to see readership to know that they can sell this thing. (Of course they can! everyone will love it.) The best way to know that real people are reading me is to have an email list of real readers. (since the WordPress system is full of “ghost followers” – fakes) Know that I will certainly not publicize anyone’s emails.
Every time you share this blog, you help to bring the publication of Embracing Chaos to pass, and the message of embracing and loving difference to a wider and wider audience. Which, I think, is a really great idea.
