Something strange arrived in the mail yesterday. I’m worn out from the wondering,
tuckered out from the thinking….
It’s not a rejection, because Mom didn’t put it into the shredder (to destroy the Karma). It’s not a bill, because Mom didn’t get online (and mumble) and pay it. It’s not a catalog, because she didn’t order me ( or herself) a new dress or toy.
Is it…? Could it be…? It IS! It’s an acceptance from Turtle Magazine.
They are buying one of Mom’s stories! Yay! The contract is signed and ready to go, and the letter is hanging on the bulletin board. It’s not Book #2, but it’s an acceptance, and we LOVE that! Look for Mom’s story, Waiting For Petey in the November/December issue of Turtle Magazine for Preschool Kids. That’s if you can find a copy. Mom might go mental with excitement and buy them all herself.
I wonder if Turtle Magazine tastes as delicious as the rent bill…..
Speaking of delicious things … and happy things, I’d like to thank our friends at DogDaz for giving us another Addictive Blog award, and our friend Chelsea at The Jenny Mac Book Blog for saying we’re Lovely again. Both these blogs are fun to laugh with and learn from. See more about these awards here and here.
