I re-read yesterday's entry and was so wrapped up in my own pity party that I neglected the sweet girls that proofread said fic. Miran & daisymama gave me fantastic advice and lots of great ideas... and they made me laugh, too. Hard, belly laughs. I owe them so much, more, I'm sure, than I can ever repay. Thanks also to peki , who read my fic out of the goodness of her heart and gave me MORE food for thought. I really & truly appreciate you all.
And I'm done with the pity party. "Whiners leave," my sainted Mother always said... okay, she's not a saint yet, we're still waiting on the miracles, and she's not dead, but still.
