When freelancing isn't fun

Okay, so I know the rules: When you work for yourself, not every day will be spectacular.

Yadda, yadda, yadda.

But the past two days have really kind of sucked. I got turned down for a writing gig. I goofed on the organization of a project. And, to top it all off, I have a super-duper-pooper-scooper case of tonsilitis. (Thanks, son! I love you with all my heart, but couldn't you have given me a lovely handmade drawing instead of your cold?)

Can someone out there please promise me that things will be better tomorrow? Or will the old "bad things come in threes" omen come to pass?

I need a soothsayer... or at least someone who will don a funky turban and wave his or her hands around a crystal ball or deck of Tarot cards.

I have witnessed the "things come in threes" rule enough times that I'd just go with that-- tomorrow will be better!

Our youngest started with a sore throat last week, but it only lasted about 3-4 days. Hopefully yours will be short-lived, too. (And, you can enjoy the ice cream in the meantime!) Feel better, Angelique!

YUCK ALERT *
I wonder if there is a league of old woman, dressed in looooong sleeved tissues, telling fortune out of snots? perhaps, to foretell the outcome and length of a disease...?

Did it make you feel a bit better?

forget about my stupid comment above: I have seen the mirror and it was breaking. Congratulations, Angelique on that particular project of yours!
(I think the site should be advertised wherever you seem it fit.)

Hope you're feeling better.

Mercury and Saturn are both retrograde. With Mercury, communication and travel are complicated, electronics go kaplooey, and, basically, you're best off shopping the shoe sales. Saturn is about life lessons, so when the two collide . . .

I got to deal with identity theft this week. Yay. Ahem.

Tomorrow will be better. Mercury goes direct on Feb. 18, so things will improve even more.

Feel better soon.

You know what? You're the second person who reminded me about the astological implications of what's happening right now w/the planets and the moon. Very, very interesting!

Thank you for stopping by! It's appreciated!

Ooh -- I'm a member of this club, and I love company!

I caught a bad cold in late December that lasted straight through mid January, then last week, I caught another one! My eldest daughter and I have been going at it tooth and nail; my youngest had to have a molar pulled (long story), and on top of all of that, I fell getting off the bus and royally messed up my knee. And throughout all of this, the house has gone to pot and I've been steadily building up my rejection letter collection.

Pass the tissues, please, and do you have any honey and lemons?
