I sent my book off to the magazine today ... I had so much angst! It felt like I was sending my child off in a box! At the moment, I'm not feeling worried about whether or not they'll accept it ... I'm worried I may never see it again (so I took lots of pictures). But as one of my friends told me, I know it's traveling in a virtual protective bubble, and it will make its way back one day ... After going to the post office, I was able to distract myself for 3 wonderful hours by going through the house of the mother of a friend of a friend (does that make sense?) I love savers and packrats and people who hold onto things. They're my favorite people! I've posted some of my new finds at the store. http://www.thepaperfleamarket.com/ When I got home, I found my Mother's Day gift had arrived ... I had requested a little tabletop photo studio. As soon as my son got home from school, he set it up and we were able to take some wonderful shots ... see ...(guess who took this one?) The final topper to the day was when I was in the basement moving a few things around and found a box with an old gingerbread house in it. Only I noticed that much of the house was no longer in there ... and there were mouse droppings inside ... along with a mouse! Just like a cartoon, I let out a scream and yelled for my husband! Long story short, we took the box and its occupant outside and left it there to finish off its snack. When I peeked out the window at the box, I saw two little brown shiny eyes looking back at me. He really was cute ... a missed photo-op (I need to start wearing my camera around my neck!
