The new roof is in place, if not the new ceiling in my son’s room, but that too comes soon. The birthday party season here at Black Creek Bottoms is in full swing, and more or less planned out.
And I emailed off the first query today, after a few final nips and tucks, until it really did have the best face possible–or the best one I could put on it, at least. Some Gaelic trimmed here, a word added there, a not-quite-dangling but not-quite-right modifier excised, and away the thing went.
Do I feel good about the query? Sure. Apprehensive? Of course. I’ve been here before, and I know the odds. One must persevere regardless.
