I finally heard back about that little editing job. I figured after so much time having passed, I probably didn't get it. Still, I admit I felt rather disappointed when the official "no" came in my inbox. Sigh. Oh well. I will go with the philosophy that it would have worked if it were the right thing.
This week, the girls start school. Stephanie will only go for 2.5 hours each day, but that is 2.5 hours I don't have now. I know too well how quickly those little hours will go, how easily they can be lost on errands and cleaning and kitchen work...but with a master plan and a lot of discipline, I might be able to turn that time into some exciting new projects. We will see.
Thank you, as always, for your encouragement and support!
