Happy Birthday To Me

Yep. That's right. I am one year older today. And it sucks. I feel older. Actually, I've felt older since having gremlin #3 (who, by the way, has turned into lightning-fast-crawling-but-silent-man and gets himself into more trouble than you can even imagine).

And I've had a really great day, too. We're having the MOTHER of all storms here, so I have no desire to even venture out of the house. The DH is deathly ill and working from home - two headaches rolled up into one great big migraine. Not only does he feel icky, but he needs it quiet so he can work. Do you know how hard it is to keep a 3 yr old quiet????

On top of all that, I mailed a requested full to a big agent in NY Tuesday. Great, right? No! Not great. Not at all! Of course, I edited and read and got the ms in tip-top shape to send it off, but then today glanced at it because I'm entering it in the GH. And it hit me - BAM - all of the sudden. The reason I've been stressing about the category I'm entering is because the first scene doesn't have a suspenseful-enough hook. So what did I do? I rewrote the first scene today, made it gel with the first chapter. And I like it much better. And CRAP I already mailed the freakin' thing to NY!

I'm so screwed.

Live and learn, right? Ay ya ya...

Happy birthday to me.

Happy Birthday!

I know. I have done that. Will probably do that again. It is hard to distance yourself when you have worked so hard on something.
Good luck!

Happy Happy Birthday Eli dear! Happy day will come to you all year. If I had a wish then it would be, a HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you from me!!!!

I love ya girl! Sorry today wasn't what it needed to be for your birthday. It sucks getting older, but take heart, you're still a sexy hot chick! (Hey, at least you don't attract OLD men!)

Hope DH gets better soon and you don't get it. Make him take you somewhere awesome for entertainment and food when he's feeling the thing again. You deserve it.

Happy Birthday and good luck on the ms you just sent to NY. You never know...

Oh duh, the thing I said about "happy day" was supposed to be "happy days". Didn't type the s. Sorry:(

Happy Birthday!

Look at it this way. They've already asked for the full. They'll probably love it and just ask that you revise the first part to be more suspenseful.

Sorry about Silent Crawling Man and Loud Middle Child and Sicky Dad on your special day. Nothing says you can't celebrate later.

Happy belated birthday (one day late)! I hope you got some enjoyment out of it. If not, make the hubby pay when he feels better. And the manuscript? Let it roll off your back. There's nothing you can do about it now. Just keep polishing for the GH!
