I've spend the majority of the day trying to find my own, mini, personal zen. Or at least the will not to break out a stick and wallop people at will. From the moment I got out of bed this morning my phone has done nothing but ring, and my nerves are shot as is. I got a lovely phone call from a relative who'd heard about the issues with Oldest and decided a phone call would be a lovely and welcome way to take child rearing advice. Oh, yeah, and to tell me how I should feel at the process. That conversation...it didn't exactly go well.
After that phone call, my day was shot. I'm shaking like a chihuahua, and what I'd mostly gotten over with Oldest sort of boiled to the surface. Not a pleasant thing. And I knew I needed to calm down before anyone else called and/or Oldest made it home from school. I stared at my open wip and all I could do was replay the conversation I'd just had, so I shut down the laptop and piled up on the couch with Mini and watched Noggin.
On another note, today is my parents 41st wedding anniversary. Go mom and dad! They're saving their "date night plans" until the weekend, since dad has to work.
Writer friend AE Rought emailed me with the awesome news that got a 4.5 out of 5 review at Romance Junkies for her book Slade and Kally! Yay, AE!

Oh! I almost forgot, finally, Sci-fi is bringing back Battlestar Galactica! It's going to be airing this Friday, January 16. So I guess we've all established where I'll be Friday night. I've got a hot date with the Cylons on radioactive wasteland Earth. Yes, indeedy.
That's it for me. I've got to go toss this salmon in the oven. You know, to feed my children and keep my motherly status, and all that. I hope you've all had a decent Tuesday. And if you didn't, hang in there. Tomorrow is hump day!
