I Did It!

"I did it!" has become a catch-phrase in my family. Last 4th of July weekend, my very small nephew Louie got a little overstressed by lack of sleep and the excitement of so much family. On the last day of his visit he was playing some age-appropriate games on my sister's iPad. He yelled "I did it!" every time he completed any task appropriately. He Did It! approximately 20 million times.

That's how I feel today.

Tomorrow I leave for ALA.

Yesterday I finished, and submitted, the latest draft of The War I Finally Won. I've been working hard on this. Can't tell you how relieved I am.

In light of yesterday's success, today I let myself go to yoga, where, two days before my 49th birthday, I did a full, real, handstand, for the first time ever. Doing a handstand before I turned 49 was a goal I set about 6 months ago.

I did it! I did it! Hooray!!
