So the most important things about today is that this happened:
I typed those words and then I cried very hard. I sobbed really, with the noise and the shortness of breath. I didn’t expect to have that reaction. I thought I would be all glib & full of sarcasm: I’m ready for the Pulitzer now. Alert the National Book Awards! Etc. But when I finally typed THE END there I was overwhelmed, exhausted, and proud. In fact, I don’t think I’ve smiled so much since The Replacements announced their reunion. I guess as far as months go, June is a banner month for Ms. Chromey.
After the sobby sobfest, I quick showered, made some delicious cowboy caviar (which I am now obsessed with and plan on making next week for Ben’s graduation party — it’s his first ever graduation party and he had to wait to get a master’s degree).
Then at family dinner we celebrated Mamala’s 62nd birthday but mostly we tried to get Liam to answer to the nickname Buster (because his ridiculous attachment to Sister #3 reminds us of Buster Bluth). I also made the proclamation that I’d rather listen to John Mayer than Alt-J (I hate that band).
Now I am here, exhausted and happy and already itchy to get going on a rewrite (though I won’t for a few weeks).
The “It’s (Insert Day of Week) and I’m Boring” is a series that Christa and I do to pay homage to the beauty of old-school blogging. (I totally copied this nice explanation from Christa).
