The girls in our house
were all sick.
Three weeks sharing it.

I'm tired of being sick.
I'm done feeling achy.
I'm over all the coughing.
I'm finished feeling the fever.

I'm tired of laying around.
I'm done doing nothing.
I'm over being no fun.
I'm finished being


The doctor says take this
for acute bronchitis.
You should feel better soon.

What's that?
What's that you say?
You say it's almost summer break?
Yeah, well, then why am I still sick today?

I look forward to the day
when I can say,
"I'm feeling good and summer break is here!
Now, let's go outside and play!"


I'm thinking I was a little inspired by

{a gift} #sos

  I read this new book: Grit for Girls and Young Women: Why the Most Difficult Challenges are So Important -- a gift from a dear friend to my daughters. She had no idea what those words did to me. Tears filled my eyes, succumbed to all the emotions of this spring and summer and the year of 2020. Especially, a summer of the not-so-relaxing, let-it-all-go, think-about-nothing kind of summer. But a summer of hearing data, growing concerns, and waiting. waiting. waiting. to hear plans for returning to school this fall. I guess I didn't realize how much I was holding in.  My ten year old daughter, Madison, walked into the room. "This book from Karen is awesome. I can't wait to read it with you.

It’s amazing to think that #cyberPD was a pioneer for online book clubs and this community made it possible!   Yet, here we are today. When we got ready to “share our bookstacks,” COVID was in full swing and teachers were juggling
