The month of March was an absolute whirlwind of changes. I had to take action, make decisions. There were reasons to be sad, reasons to be afraid and reasons to celebrate. I had to think fast, lay low, plan ahead, put a pillow over my head. I had to follow my gut, stay calm, do with little sleep. I had to be pushy, be patient, be reasonable and unreasonable. I had to take a few blows and return some. I still had to write, clean, cook, shop, and on occasion make an ass of myself and accidentally fall into the pool but my mind really wasn't into it.
Among the wonderful things that happened: my kid was accepted at 10 out of 15 universities he applied to. Pride and Joy in the mail box all month long. This was much needed recognition of his ambition and intellect, because it doesn't matter how wonderful we think he is, until a university throws money at him to lure him into going there, how could he be sure? Among the not so good things that happened, he did not get accepted at his first choice school. Although, silver lining at least for me, he might now go to a California school where I can stop by his dorm and make his bed on occasion,hehe. But I'm trying my best not to push him in one direction or another. It's not about me. Or shouldn't be. Okay it does feel A LOT about me. I'm so not ready to let go.
Good thing: Nadia and I are now an item. Haha, that's a hell of a teaser isn't it? That's all I'll say for now. I'll tell you the details of the story later. I'm hugely excited about this little secret of ours. Sometimes when I think about it I have to shake my head in disbelief. You'll see, you'll see.
Really disheartening thing: I thought my novel would come out this month: it won't. It's still riddled with typos something awful. Typos are like slugs in my vegetable garden, they keep coming and coming and there seems to be no end to them. I'm tempted to use a flame thrower over the whole thing (the book and the garden.)
Great thing: I lost four pounds! Yeahhhh! Anxiety and stress really suit me.
