Not sleeping well tonight, obviously. Thought I'd pop in and tell you that, because I was reminded of my writing magazines last post, I picked up my Poets & Writers again...
...and made it thru to the back. I guess I should read my magazines faster--ROFL! Look what I found under all the "Recent Winners" listings!
Ha! Me!! Do you believe it? In a magazine I have read off and on since college. Wow! Never would have imagined this. Nice! :)
I thought this had happened too long ago for it to ever be included, so I was quite surprised. Pleasantly!! :):)
Was Karma impressed?
But she loves me anyways. ;)
There's another big thunderstorm with occasional hail and a lot of lightning heading this way, so I should shut down the McLap--go take a pain pill and try to catch a few more Zs. Oh--and the TV is working and recording gloriously!!! :):)

Nothing quite as thrilling as getting one's name in print huh?


*giggles* I guess for Karma who's name is published many times a week - it has become hoooo hum.

Congrats on making it into the magazine for winning the poetry contest. I bet that was neat to see. Would you believe that Pine City, New York, is only a hop, skip, and a jump away from me? (about 35 miles by car)

That Karma has the life. :)

I'm glad to hear the TV is still working and recording great.

I hope the big thunderstorm and hail missed you and you were able to get some more sleep.

Congratulations! And that's great about the TV system too! :)

Hope you managed to get some more sleep, or - if not - had a nice storm to listen to. ;)

Just stopped by to wish you the best of luck tomorrow -

We'll be thinking about you and hoping for the end of your pain and discomfort.

Yay Rita!! So much deserved for such a beautiful poem! Your picture of Karma made me laugh. :)

Serena Lewis said...'re a celebrity!!! It must be a wonderful feeling to see your name listed in the magazine.

Rita said...

Thanks everybody!
Cracks me up that I had the magazine sitting around here for over a month before I discovered I was listed there in the back--ROFL!

Iggy--yup! Karma is used to being a celebrity--hehe! ;)

AliceKay--that's weird that you are so close to the second prize winner, too! :)

And yes--I have been sleeping better since the tooth was taken out. You guys are all so great! :)
