I'm clucking!

Oh yeah! If my back wasn't hurting so bad, I'd be up doing the victory dance. I received my final round acceptance from Chicken Soup for the Soul books on my story for the Married Life book. It is a story so dear to my heart about how Bill and I met. It is about how his pantry, like his life seemed perfect, mine and my life were haphazard. I wrote how I like to wing it and he has to plan every detail. It also includes a humorous incident involving a vacation.

I had titled it Committed, No Matter How it Stacks Up. The only edit they made was the title, they changed it to, The Odd Couple, which is probably more appropriate. The big guy said, "Well they should retitle it to, The Odd ONE!"

PS--thank goodness I'm finally able to leave comments again on your blog--couldn't do it for a long time as I always got the message that I wasn't matching the text thingie (that you used to prevent spam)...so glad you changed it!

Ha haa! I love Bill's comment about the Odd One. Is he referring to himself by any chance?! Congratulations again! Maybe someday I'll get to share a Chicken soup book with you!

Congratulations! That may have been the title I submitted to and didn't get accepted. I like both the titles!
