2+ Weeks

Well, in the 2+ weeks of blogger absence, I have done little that you all would care to hear, so I'll summarize.

I've been running (made it around Lake Calhoun, ca. 3.1 miles/5km, in about 35 minutes. Awesome!)
I've been biking 80+ miles in May (compare to the 65 miles total in 2008).
I've been swimming.
I'm planning on a triathlon. (!)
I'm 30.
I'm talking a lot about myself.
Becky's job searching, which is a mixed blessing.
She and I did all the above together (some of the biking and running was solo, but the Calhoun was with her).
I was paired up with a youth for Bolder Options, I have yet to meet him or even reconfirm my commitment, but I'm excited.

Now, in the last post I wrote that I was going to submit a composition for publication. I emailed said publishing company on May 11th for their guidelines. When I hadn't heard on May 13th, I called and got the lowdown. May 14th, with much fanfare, literally, I mailed it off. Less than 2 weeks later, I got my rejection email and finally on June 1, I get the email on manuscript guidelines. I got rejected before they even told me how to get rejected!

Anyway, I don't know if I'll resubmit it elsewhere, rework it, or self-publish. I like it the way it is, so maybe I'll look for another publishing house.

This is my life for the last few weeks. Send Becky job finding thoughts (or potential jobs) and have a great while until I see you again.
