Less Fraught: Important Books in my Life

I got some calories into me last night and started feeling much better than I did in my last post. I know the 4:00 p.m. blood sugar crash is real, but sometimes I forget how real. Yesterday was the first day all week I hadn't managed to remember to eat something between lunch and dinner, and it mattered. The things that were bothering me -- both in the post and out of it -- would still have bothered me, but I felt a lot better about them with very little resolved after I got some mediocre Thai food and some ice cream into me. So: blood sugar crash. Yes. I hate late afternoon so much. I'm a morning person, but I understand night people. What I can't understand is how anybody could prefer the hours between about 3:30 and 6:00. Ugh.

Anyway, last time I was talking about important books in my life (here), I got up to age 8. Surprise surprise, I have had other improtant books in my life since then.

And there have been important books to me more recently than my 15th birthday, too, but that's enough for this morning, and I have Beth and the wee Jane and possibly Josh to meet for lunch. So.

Week of May 29-June 4

One rejection. That's it.

Tomorrow is not overbooked to the point of being rushed, but it's also not going to be a day for lying around eating bonbons and reading movie magazines, so I'm going to do some of that tonight. Figuratively speaking.
