Well, anything posted this week feels more insignificant than ever before. My numeroscope promised one of the best weeks of the year. And then, VA Tech happened. My losses last week – a friend to principle, a couple of writing rejections, money to healthier food, etc. – just don’t add up to a hill of beans. All I can do, though, is, like everyone else, pray for the families who, while never making sense of it, can hopefully find gratitude and comfort in the time they had with their children.
It’s prom week in our house. It doesn’t have the same connotation when it’s your SON’s prom, though. I don’t really get to do much. I was asked for my advice about corsage flowers and I did get to pick up some fancy dress socks at Wal-Mart while I was buying Lipton Green Tea and dog food. But when I proudly presented them for the cause, I was told that a complimentary pair was given with the tux rental. Hmmmph. Unnecessary again.
It actually has been a positive week and included a call about a new project from a company for whom I did some work last year (teaching me to never delete anything again) and a call from the perfect friend who sounded happy and loved, whether she likes to talk about it or not. I also have no writing rejections to report, but that's only because I have no writing submissions to report either. Note to self: suck it up and get back in the game.
