I did it! Wrote a crappy picture book manuscript today! But still! And the good news is that it was kind of fun to do. Writing is SOOOOO much easier when you have no expectations of yourself (other than to finish something).
On the food front I ate many, many (sadly many) caramels today to obliterate the memory of yesterday's nasty cupcake. AND my boys, my daughters-in-law, my husband and I went to our favorite go-to restaurant for my belated b-day dinner--Rio Grande. Yes! Life is good!
