Monday Mumblings

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Well. Spent yesterday afternoon with some friends. I apologize gang, for how the whole thing turned into a whinge-fest.

I'll share it with you, briefly. I've been presented with an amazing opportunity, but I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to take advantage of it. This is something I've worked for a good chunk of my life, and I greatly fear it's going to slip through my fingers.


Part of it is me. I'm scared to death that if I can get my act together in time that it won't do me any good. The self-esteem quotient will take a nosedive. Not that it has very far to go right now, but I could be officially very near rock bottom.

Part of it is not as much in my control as I'd like. Circumstances are playing against me. The timing is not good at all.

In short, I'm about to blow the most amazing thing of my life. Well, the third-most amazing. I married the first and gave birth to the second.

What is it? You'll find out, I suspect, in a couple of weeks. Right now I don't even want to talk about it.

How's THAT for cryptic, folks?
