Lemonade

Love. (That is all.)

Who am I kidding? That is never all.
My name is Susannah Lastnamehere, and I'm a mom. A writer.
I got laid off and became something More. This is just a Working Title.
I love this. Lovelovelovelovelove. Watch and see if you do, too.

How inspiring! I too was laid off (early '08)
and it's been wonderful being able to spend
time with my kids. I'm still looking for work but
I have also decided to go to Grad school
and switch careers entirely. It will be tough
to be working full time again and going to school
but oh so worth it! Lemonade from lemons
indeed! All things happen for a reason, I
believe.

I just dont get it,someone who can write like u do,that captures my attention and I look foward to reading everyday,u should be sharing that with the world.(Well o.k. u are)But everyone should read ur work.You should write that book,u have it in u and I cant speak for everyone else but I know I would buy it and read it.Besides,u were meant to be a mother and stay at home with that sweet little girl of yours.If "Cakewrecks" could get a book deal surely you should.I mean I like me some cakewrecks blog but its no Petunia Face,lol.K

Can't wait to see it. I dream about having the courage to do that without having the laid off part, just the walking away/new start part.

heather said...

From Jackie Chan look-alike:

My wish for you, Susannah, is that you will remember this when you start to feel down or fearful. You are an exceptional writer. You are an exceptional woman. My wish for you, Susannah, is that when you look in the mirror you will always be able to see what the rest of us see.

Can I be awful for a moment?...how about the nose on that boxless woman?!

After watching that, I want to get laid off! Oh wait, first I have to get a job. :)

I'm excited to see it/ my friend in it. I hope it gets picked up by a distributor
