Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

It's hard to see myself

I was driving home today, looking in my rear view mirror at the big red truck barreling closer to my car and I'm thinking, Wow, that guy's nose doesn't even come up past his steering wheel - I bet he's not old enough to drive! Then I look forward again and realize that's about where my nose lands, too. It was quite a shock.

Still haven't heard anything from the big deal local contest about my short stories, so I'm entering the denial period where I'm pretty sure they're just late about getting around to me. At the same time, I've been so crabby that I think it's rubbing off on Sprinkles - she's started randomly growling at things like the ceiling fan and my yoga mat.

I think crabbiness is in the air right now. I've been pretty crabby myself. So I'm right there with ya!

It's the lack of a real spring. We're all getting crabby! Fingers crossed they're just late. And ummm I love the observations you make ;)

Is it possible that your crabbiness (or maybe Sprinkles') rubbed off on both my boys? Probably not...
Must be something in the air...

Hoping that the crabbiness is what's making the contest people so slow to get back to you...

Still hoping good things for you! And yes, sometimes it's very difficult to see ourselves... Especially when I fight so hard against opening my eyes.

I hate those periods of waiting when it comes to writing things because it feels so personal. Writing is such an extension of your soul in so many ways, so even the smallest things mean a lot to me. Hang in there.

Awwww, man! I am with H F W. It feels personal because so much of you is put into your writing. Of course, the people "judging" don't make that connection and are removed from it all, so they feel free to lah-di-dah around making you nutters! Sending strength and patience your way! And hugs to Sprinkles for good mental health. :P
