Happy Saturday

OMG, yesterday ended up being the day from h-e-double-hockey-sticks. I received a rejection from an agent I was very hopeful about; my hubby's 19 yr old poured a bunch of plastic bb's down our kitchen sink; and now our dishwasher and garbage disposal won't work (I think the effing bb's clogged them up). The kids were killing each other; and the five year old decided to throw a fit in the middle of the street when we walked down to a garage sale and discovered the people had already closed up shop.

Because I was so upset about the rejection, I lost it. I had a total meltdown. Hubby felt so bad he bought me a card with Godzilla on the front chewing up a train. Bless him :)

Just because I'm a masochist, I sent an email query to another agent at about 10:00 last night. She requested sample chapters within two minutes. Yay! Because I was so upset, I scurried around the house cleaning. As a result, this morning I woke up to a tidy house. Another yay! The kids are still peace reigns for at least another hour. A third yay! And the garbage disposal and dishwasher...well, I don't know what the heck we'll do about those :(

Anyone. Please tell me--when, oh when do teenagers grow up?!

Oh Tawny. I'm so sorry. It's so tough when it all comes down at once. I hope you get a little peace and quiet this morning. It's not even 6am here and I woke up for a little quiet time. I hope today goes a lot better.
Congrats on the partial request. Yayyyy!

Hey Tawny that sucks! But I thought you had an agent? *scratching my head in confusion* In any case, a two minute reply from an agent to send stuff? Ugh, that's fabulous!

I love the fact that your hubby bought you a godzilla card, or was it king kong, can't scroll back right now. Anyway, that's pretty funny!

I'm sorry, Tawny. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this query will have better results!

Thanks for all the support!

At times, I wonder if I'll find another agent. It's difficult finding an agent who is enthusiastic about your work, well-connected with publishers and experienced. {sigh}
