Two in a Row...

Mostly Hobbes

You are 20% Calvin and 80% Hobbes
You've got elements of both Calvin and Hobbes, but over all, your sensible side wins out over your wild streak, and you tend toward the tiger. As the picture below indicates, the head is the first place that people usually turn to the darkside (i.e. Calvin): symptoms include irresponsible behavior and crazy ideas. You're liable to both. But beneath that you have a heart, a sensitive side, and this more often than not carries the day.

That was interesting, but I have to admit I don't read 'Calvin and Hobbes' enough to truly understand the results...oh well. The other guilt one was more interesting, but I forgot to copy it to here -- oh, well.

Still waiting on the full ms review; tired, as usual.

Good News: although I have yet to lose any lbs, I have lost some size through morning pilates:) Thankfully! My 20th hs reunion is this summer, and I'm hoping to look tolerably well. My closest friend from hs isn't going -- but I see her regularly anyway, so I guess that's okay. She's not in to reunions; I don't have much of a choice, though I'm sure I'd go regardless. I like to see how everyone's doing -- and hear about their lives, their children, all the good stuff. Since my husband and I graduated from the same school in the same year -- but didn't know each other -- it'll be fun to see reactions to our pairing (we weren't together at the 10-yr)...the reunion planners sent out a list of people they couldn't find, and I hated to see it! I knew a number of those people in hs, but I haven't the faintest idea how to find them now. And I wonder if they're thinking of the reunion and wishing they could go...sigh. It's too bad that sometimes our status as a teen can carry over into our adult lives (yeah, most of the 'missing' are those who were overlooked then too).

Well, enough babbling. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! (With some sleep)

Isolation

I remember being told about how isolated it is being a stay-at-home mom. Normally I don't feel that way, but today, for some reason, I do. Obviously, because I usually don't have time to blog at all, let alone twice in one morning. But my husband is skiing and the kids are playing, and I'm feeling a little blue. I think writers feel this way often, as well. After all, we spend most of our time before our computers (or spiral notebooks) writing down our creativity...and our interaction with others is limited. No water cooler at our office :) So I seemed to have combined two of the lonliest professions. And today I feel it. I haven't heard from any publishers or agents today...no mail yet...no e-mail. Because of spring break, most of my friends are busy -- and I'm not. Back when I was teaching, before kids, I couldn't wait for spring break...today, in all honesty, I'm dreading it.

Well, pity party over. I wouldn't change a thing, of course. I love my kids, and I love writing. I know I'm blessed to be able to stay home and do both. I'm off to find a park so the kids can play, and I know the sun will shine -- or not -- and life will continue. And tomorrow is another day.

Hoping a nice balance of isolation and interaction for each of you, my friends.
