Do that ShđŸ’©t!

I don’t usually post on a Tuesday, but this is time sensitive. My husband, Dwight created a T-shirt to inspire people to do what they want in life. He’s giving 75% of the proceeds to the Special Olympics.

Half a Haibun 1

…then there was that time I wrote a book and my new friend I met through blogging felt inspired to create half a Haibun. Ta Mek! I certainly appreciate it 🙂 Who’s Thom? You gotta get a copy of The Unhappy Wife and find out 😉

Work in Progress

Half a haibun a collaborative project between 10000hoursleft.wordpress.com and other bloggers part 1 - the unhappy wife with K E  Garland

Other People’s Quotes: Marriage

This is my favorite one because it hits home. I had a GREAT wedding, paid for by my Grannie and attended by many who love Dwight and me. As much as I love my hubby, I did find myself waking up like Oh crap! Now I gotta work at a marriage! Anywho, let me know what you think.

And as of today, you can use this link to order the paperback. I figured I’d release it a little early so you can have your copy by October 20th!
