TT - five bad, but eight good things that have happened in our house this week

The Bad

  1. I got a rejection letter this week from a publisher regarding one of my manuscripts.

  2. I had to pick up Keira from preschool on Monday because she wouldn't stop crying.

  3. As I suspected, I've put on approx 1.5 kgs since before going away on our road trip

  4. I have been suffering the brain-freeze which is PMT. (At least I hope that's what it is...although my husband mightn't!)

  5. I was almost rear-ended in the supermarket carpark by an old man on Tuesday. Grr!

The Good

  1. I am getting a total blog overhaul and re-design over the next five weeks, done by the talented Leanne. Yes, it looks like I'm finally defecting from blogger.

  2. One of my top ten favourite books of all time, Pillars of the Earth, is finally getting a sequel! World Without End, to be released in Australia in October. I'm thinking Christmas presents, family...

  3. It's Spring! No further explanation!

  4. Touch wood, the kids are pretty healthy at the moment.

  5. There's the possibility of one of the kids saying something like, "Mum, does my Dora watch get email?" (Keira). Good Lord! That really happened!

  6. I'm about to get some quotes done for some backyard re-landscaping. I'll post some photos - you'll see why!

  7. I have to first three seasons of Deadwood here, on my DVD stand, calling me to watch them...

  8. Best of all: I'm pitching my children's book next weekend to an agent in the hopes of achieving representation. Wish me luck!

Good idea for a list. Your #5 on 'The Bad' is just very annoying. On 'The Good', good luck on your #8.

I loved Pillars of the Earth. Thanks for the heads up about the sequel.

I'm afraid I could never get into Deadwood, but I am delighted about Pillars having a sequel. It's one of my top faves too.

Ooh, good luck with the pitch! Maybe it's the reason you got the rejection? Let's hope so!

Have a great week, Karen! And have FUN with the pitch!!!!

Good Luck with your Children's book!! That just sounds so awesome.

This is so cool that I came to your 13 right now because I just got off of the phone with him and he is a truck driver and is stuck in Dallas , well he was wanting to just come home and give up , and I just told him that you have to take the good with the bad.
