It’s been a week of ups and downs here in my neck of the woods. Thumper is now walking…when he feels like it, which frankly, isn’t that often. Stubborn little guy. He and Cricket are working on molars, so I’ve got two cranky little guys running around my house. Seymour’s grandma passed away yesterday after years of health problems, so we’re dealing with everything attendant with that as well. We’ll be seeing a lot of the family over the next few days, as the visitation is Friday, the funeral Saturday, and the family reunion/40th anniversary party for Seymour’s parents/Thumper’s birthday party is on Sunday. Going back to work on Monday will feel like a vacation at this rate.
Revisions continue. I’ve added over 10,000 words and more than 30 pages in the last 27 days, and I still have about 90 pages left to go before I’m finished revising (this time). I received another rejection today, so now I can mark that one off on my list. I’ve got a spreadsheet going, but I should probably be looking into Query Tracker. I’ve heard many people swear by it and while I’m pretty sure I looked at it once already (I might have even signed up for it, but I can’t remember), I don’t think I ever really used it. I should change that. Anyway, I’m not going to let a form rejection stand in my way of success. I’m going to keep plugging away. As a little engine once said, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!”
Oh, and the reunion? I had fun. I got to talk to some friends, see some people I haven’t seen since the last reunion, and then afterward, my oldest friend and I spent some time looking at old photo albums from when we were kids. That was fun, especially trying to pick out all our classmates in old pictures. Good times. I hope our next reunion will be even better than the last two have been.
And that’s about all from me for tonight. I’ve been having fun on the ’90s Kid Facebook page (check it out if you’re a ’90s kid, too – it’s an awesome blast from the past!) tonight and the next few days are going to be an epic test of my patience, so I hope that I can make it through with my patience (and by extension, my sanity) intact. Have a great rest of the week! I’ll catch you all on the flip side.
