I write letters to Ellen DeGeneres. Why? Because I Can!
Today is day 10 of the Writer’s Digest Platform challenge. In today’s challenge, we were asked to put a “call to action” at the end of our blog post. The purpose of the call to action is to engage with your readers. Stay tuned!!! As for my Dear Ellen letter yesterday, I must admit, there’s a tough crowd on reddit. That post was downvoted to zero. Rude!
Yesterday was my birthday. After we put the kids to bed, my husband and I watched Insidious Chapter 3 in our candlelit living room. The movie was pretty good. I think the first two were better, but it was still enjoyable – in a freaky, pants-peeing kind of way.
In the middle of the night, I felt a hand grab my ankle twice. The first time, I thought it maybe it was my cat jumping on to the bed. The second time, I knew it had to be a hand. I jumped up and looked at the end of the bed. There, sitting on the foot of the bed with a pair of wide-eyes staring back at me was……my 3 year-old. He got out of bed and decided to join my husband and I. Not wanting to be a burden, he brought his own pillow and blanket with him. I got up and tucked him back in. Then, I crawled back into my own bed and tried to fall back asleep. That part wasn’t so easily accomplished. It’s all fun and games until someone gets spooked.
