... but they don't fall down.
Thanks, Everyone. It's nice to have so many online shrinks to lend me some encouraging words when I have a mini-freakout (and it's free. How can you beat that?!)
I'm happy to announce that I'm feeling much better now. I think I was dealing with a little bit of post-travel fatigue. I re-read my post and realized how complainy (it's a Tracy word) I sounded. Believe it or not, I wasn't stressed because I felt like I HAD to do all those things and couldn't ... I was feeling stressed because I WANT to do all those things and can't fit them in. Apparently, it has taken me this long to realize I'm not superhuman after all. Dammit!
I'm rather amused at myself. Seems I can handle agent rejection in stride, but I lose my cool when time refuses to bend itself to my will. Go figure.
If any of my buddies are looking for a fun contest to join in on -- admit it, some of you are totally addicted to blog contests and challenges -- Kay is having one over at her blog. It's a short romance scene, but it can be funny or zaney, etc -- which is why I think if the guys that follow my blog were to give it a go, it would be freaking awesome!
I know I've mentioned it before, but if any of you are looking for a great YA series to get into I highly recommend "Vampire Academy", by Richelle Mead. I just read the 5th book while on my trip, and I can't find enough words to describe how much I love this series. Despite what the title suggests, the main character is NOT a vampire. Richelle has also managed to create a character I whole-heartedly swoon over. I *heart* Dimitri Belikov!!!!! (Yes, I love him five exclamation points worth. It's that serious.)
