Two things happening here to bring me joy. Yesterday afternoon I got my first check for a print article I’ve written. It’s for a local mag, not a literary story by any means, but IN PRINT (soon) !!!! Two more of them are on tap and that’s nothing but good.
And, the second. Today I get a package in the mail from the guy I’m heading off to spend time with. Yes! A gift. In the mail. I’m like a kid when it comes to surprises. I have no clue as to what it is, but I’m speculating! It’s pretty cool and a totally new experience for me.
That’s all, but it has certainly put a smile on my face. I’m ready for some fun and some good news right about now. I also found a job worth applying for -one which I think I’m highly qualified for. Me and 500 hundred others, but it comes w/ partial health care benefits (it’s a part-time job). So, let’s all light a candle here for Ms. Divine. She’s ready to start getting massages again and drooling over expensive shoes. She’s also ready for a brilliant, funny and emotionally balanced man in her life.
Fingers crossed as I toast my potential good news with a Gin and Tonic (well, that was last night, there’s coffee in the cup as we speak) and contemplate the lingerie I want to take on my trip.
