I am having a beautiful week. I've been really busy writing lately -- more than 30 newspaper writing assignments the last two months. And then in yesterday's paper, there was a beautiful letter to the editor about me from a fan. The letter made me blush. It was awesome!

And just now -- I received a yes from American Girl! I am so excited. I saw the envelope when I got home and I couldn't even open it. I just stared at it and finally tore it open. I started reading, and my heart skipped... they liked my story idea for a future issue. I screamed and did a snoopy dance.

I feel great. I know I write for newspapers all the time, but this is so different. This is what I've always wanted.
I am always so happy when I read about all of you with "yes" answers.....

and finally....finally......it is my turn and here I am.....dancing away :snoopy:

I'm so happy for you, congratulations! I can't wait for the day I see one of those envelopes and it says "show me your manuscript". Good job and keep up the work. Party!

Thank you, everyone. It has been a great week. (great three months)

Some of you asked where I've been. Feb/March is my "busy" time. I cover a lot of stories (World Ag Expo, CMEA music festival, a lot of agriculture stories, and quite a few other misc. stories) so I usually disappear this time of year. I also went to the east coast twice. ;)
