If I used Twitter…

I would tweet something like this:

“I survived yesterday and actually got a lot done. I slept hard, and today’s a better day. Thanks for your kind words even though my troubles were laughable. I saw this quote taped to my kitchen window last night, and I smiled and thought: Man, isn’t that the truth?“….


See?, this is why I don’t Twitter.  Brevity is not my forte.

  1. Ah, Steph. I’m glad it’s a better day. But I have to say, now that evil yesterday is over, that it lightens my heart to hear that I’m not the only one who has thoughts and days like that. Truly. I hope the sun is shining where you are!

  2. Haha! Yeah, you would’ve gone over in Twitter. You’re only allowed 140 characters! It’s nearly impossible. I only do it because that’s my brother and my Mom’s only way of doing social networking!

    Glad you got a lot done!

  3. Hi Stephanie,

    Did you see my email back to you? Sometimes my messages get sent to junk boxes.

    I need to put that quote on my fridge. Although I admire brevity, I can rarely achieve it myself.


  4. Seriously, 140 characters? I take 140 characters just to say “…and a large Diet Coke” No Tweeting for me, either. And I too am glad you’re feeling better. It doesn’t matter that someone else has more troubles than you at any given time; a rotten day is a rotten day.

    Hugs to you! Enjoy conference weekend! (Do you get it on cable or internet or anything? Or do you have to get all dressed up and go to the church like we used to do in Seattle and Puerto Rico? We get it on TV here in Vegas, which I think will save Las Vegas from the otherwise Sodom and Gomorrah-esque fate which would otherwise undoubtedly be in its future!)

  5. Oh, I love that quote! You are such an inspiration to me! I know you don’t like it when people say that, or praise you a lot, but honestly, it is the truth. Thank you for posting that quote. It is such a great reminder.

  6. Just wait until you are a grandmother! It’s all joy and no diapers. 🙂

    But then you have the cares of a son (and young father) who loses his job, a thirty something daughter who has never married and yearns for children of her own, a daughter who has chronic heart problems that buries her young family in horrendous debt…. it goes on and on with the years.

    But the joy is still there.

  7. I have that quote (plus a bit more of the quote) on my fridge. I am in need of a constant reminder that it’s ok to have crappy days.

    And I did join twitter and it just makes me tired to think that I have ANOTHER place to write something witty. So it is neglected.

  8. I am supposed to sign up for Twitter for my new book release. I have been postponing it because I just don’t want to. Maybe I should claim I do not have the brevity for it…

    I hope your conference weekend goes better than yesterday.

  9. I’ve been know to use up all the space leaving someone a answering machine message.

    And I liked that quote! Seems fitting as my son is currently banished to his room for eating my very expensive birthday choclate.

Please say something. I've said enough. :)
