Well, it was an eventful couple of weeks. I must say that it was a really terrific feeling when I found out that my first piece ever was published by the Huffington Post Blog! I was with my daughter when I got the email saying that my piece had beeb published, and to receive good news and have your child be the first to know is a wonderful feeling. Also, my daughter got to see that, in addition to being a mom, I do other things that make me happy. She didn’t really understand the concept of publication so my happiness eluded her. I asked, “How would you feel if you made the gymnastics team?” and a huge grin spread across her face and I said “That’s how I feel right now.” And we held hands and walked home from school and it was just the most complete, filling feeling.
The following week, The Huffington Post Blog published my second piece in the Comedy Section!* Now I need to buckle down and do some real work.
*I have been trying to type “woo hoo” for the past five minutes and my autocorrect keeps changing it to “woo too.” Autocorrect fucker. Is there someone inside the computer fucking with all of us? I think there is, because my phone changes “Jake” to “kale.”
