It's my first full day without the boys. I cried when they all pulled out of the driveway last night after dinner.

So, I started a database to keep track of all my agent submissions.

Now, I'm back to finishing up the synopsis and writing. Heck, with all the time on my hands, I may even get my newsletter out on time at the end of the month! Wooohooo!
