Apparently, I'm not going to take over the universe.
Not this year, anyway.
Had a meeting yesterday in which I was able to
*** not get what I asked for;
*** make a complete and utter fool of myself; and
*** feel betrayed and used,
all in the space of an hour and a half.
On the other hand, I got a phone call from my younger brother (father of triplets; all boys; 2 1/2 years old)and my sister-in-law that left me smiling. Family can do that, can't they? I'm so looking forward to seeing the boys for Christmas, and having a huge family blow-out holiday. Should be just the antidote for the bitterness I'm currently experiencing.
