Good…Not Good Enough
Quote du Jour:
â€œTo be a good diarist, one must have a snouty, sneaky mind.â€
So Saturday we headed out to Texas Motor Speedway for the Busch race. It was a lot of fun. I got a really girlie t-shirt out of the deal too. Itâ€™s red with â€œRaceGirlâ€ all glittery across the front. Woo! Since I donâ€™t really have a favorite driver, I thought this would be the best choice for me. I had their $7 margarita and a $3 soft pretzel and then promptly started feeling sick to my stomach. I think I was getting dehydrated because once I started drinking water, I was fine. Got sunburned on my right side only since thatâ€™s the way the sun was pointing. I had to break down and buy a $5 tube of SPF 30. If I hadnâ€™t I would have been really bad off.
Sunday was a lazy day. Allergies kicked in full force and I felt like total crap. Still do. Had no energy but I still managed to get the floor swept, the laundry done, and cook dinner. Yes, folks, I actually cooked on Sunday. Made Mexican food and we have enough leftovers to last the entire week.
Received a rejection for TDTM. Basically, it said the writing was good but not good enough. The story, they thought, wasnâ€™t something their readers would like. To say I was disappointed would be a gross understatement.
Itâ€™s frustrating. My very first reaction was I had no desire to write another word. Ever. Becauseâ€¦whatâ€™s the point? My second reaction was â€œIâ€™m so depressed I want to go shopping and max out every credit card I have.â€ I didnâ€™t. Instead, I went to Walgreenâ€™s and bought Claritin and a Hershey bar. The Claritin didnâ€™t help much. The chocolate made me feel somewhat better.
Not sure what my next step will or should be. Still thinking and trying to decide. Itâ€™s just another rejection in a long line of rejections. Itâ€™s really no big deal. Iâ€™m over it for the most part.
For now, Iâ€™m going to try to get over these stupid allergies.
