Honoring Veteran's Day

My wonderful husband reminded me today of this beautiful song we love by John Gorka , it's perfect for Veteran's Day.

"Let Them In was made into song by John Gorka from a poem found in a hospital in the Philippines during World War II. The nurse that found the poem kept it all these years until the recent war brought out all the memorabilia. Luckily, her daughter sent a copy to John."

Let them in, Peter
They are very tired
Give them couches where the angels sleep
And light those fires

Let them wake whole again
To brand new dawns
Fired by the sun not wartime's
Bloody guns

May their peace be deep
Remember where the broken bodies lie
God knows how young they were
To have to die
God knows how young they were
To have to die

So give them things they like
Let them make some noise
Give dance hall bands not golden harps
To these our boys

And let them love, Peter
For they've had no time
They should have trees and bird songs
And hills to climb

The taste of summer in a ripened pear
And girls sweet as meadow wind
With flowing hair

And tell them how they are missed
But say not to fear
It's gonna be alright
With us down here

Just Julie: My first ever NaNoWriMo!

Wow! I just have to share that I am participating in this year's NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. It is so fun and I am so glad I am giving it a try. I was inspired to try it by a couple of my local moms group friends who are participating.

If you aren't familiar with NaNoWriMo, it is 30 days of fast and furious fiction writing! You join the site, it's free, and they motivate you to write, write, write. They have a word counter to help you keep track of how far you've gotten, forums where you can connect with other locals, and tips and tricks for writing in general.

If you can complete a 50,000 word Novel by the end of November then you're considered a winner. The prize...self satisfaction, knowing that you wrote a NOVEL! How cool would that be. Many people say "Oh, I'd like to write a book one day" but very few actually do.

Scenario: You sign up for NaNoWriMo, you write and write and you finish! You read it, let some friends read it and hey, you think it might be good enough to get published. You submit it to a publisher it and Bam! Your book's in Oprah's Book Club! (can you tell I am an optimist?) LOL

Anyways, you never know and it sure is fun to try. So far I am at about 5,000 words, only 45,000 more to go, and you know what? I actually like my story so far. It started out with me doubting I could find anything to write about and now, 5000 words in I am on a roll. Plus, somehow a dead body ended up in the story, I didn't plan it but my characters stumbled upon it, now I'm just trying to roll with it...

So, it's not to late for you to sign up. And if you need a writing buddy add me to your list! My id is geishagirrrl! Good Luck!

Fluff in the Spotlight: Econobum OneSize Cover & Prefold

So, for years die hard prefold users have been on one side of the fence and BumGenius users on the other. If cloth diapering with prefolds can be so easy then how can we justify spending $16-19.00 on a single diaper? While the BumGenius users thought about how reliable their BG's were and a lot like disposables, super convenient!

Now, thanks to the makers of BumGenius, the prefold users and the BumGenius users can have the best of both worlds! They can have the Econobum!

The Econobum is a super affordable, super easy to use Onesize cloth diapering system. Prefold lovers are sure to love the ingenius design of their onesize prefold and cover and BumGenius lovers get to experience just how convenient and affordable using prefolds and covers can be!

The Econobum works like this:
*The Econobum is available individually or in a kit.
