How Quickly Things Change

I woke up in a ridiculously bad mood yesterday. Part of it was from lack of sleep, part of it was from my schedule being changed, and part of it was from who knows what. By the time I went to bed last night, I was floating on cloud nine.

Mid-morning, I received a call that started the brightening of my day. It was encouraging. Late afternoon, I talked to a library that I'm setting a reading/presentation up at, and the librarian was so nice and excited about having me, I couldn't help by smile. By evening, I opened my email to find contracts for my kids' books. I was so happy, I did a little dance in the living room, making my boys squeal with delight (which also helped improve my mood).

It's amazing how fast things can turn around, and when you least expect it. It goes both ways, of course, but I really prefer it going up (who doesn't?). I'm going to spend today relishing the good fortune of yesterday. Has anyone else had any wonderful news lately?

Congratulations on your contracts! That's a great mood booster. I'm waiting to hear on one that sounds promising...when I get the contract (fingers crossed) I'll be walking on cloud nine with you. :)

Oooo! You'll have to let me know when you hear. We can have a party!
