In the week since my last post, besides working full-time, I made 21 PBJs, readied my son for his senior prom, baked three dozen chocolate chips cookies, ate at least a dozen of said cookies and finished 37 drafts of my agent-requested synopsis, but submitted only one. Finally. Last night.
Many thanks to my family and friends who proofed it for me and provided feedback. If it receives a favorable response, I’m sending flowers to you all. If it lands me a contract, new cars all around. ; )
The automated response I received from the agent said it may take 6 – 8 weeks for him to get back to me. Plenty of time to save up for some new wheels…
In the meantime, to celebrate this auspicious occasion, I got up early this morning to make banana walnut pancakes for my boys before my first meeting started. It’s not that I had a taste for them. I just wanted the house to smell all breakfast-y when they woke up. It makes the morning far less jarring.
I suppose a scented candle would suffice, but by actually making the pancakes, I already have breakfast ready for them. A win-win.
If only every day started as efficiently….
Usually, it’s a mad rush just get showered, clothed, fed, packed up and out the door. And then there’s the kids.
I’m counting the days until summer break. I know I say that every year, but it’s true. And, when my house is crawling with bored boys, I’m sure I’ll be counting down the days until the start of the new school year.
In any event, if I do, just tell me to light a candle. A pancake-scented one.
