Thanks for all the sympathy in the comments today. The worst of it is, it really is beautiful outside. And it could always be worse. My power could go out and I could be trapped the entire day in a hotel room with a toddler refusing to nap. OH, WAIT!!!
Did I resort to putting the still pajama'ed lad on his monkey leash and letting him run laps around the fourth floor of the Embassy Suites? Yes. Yes, I did.
On the bright side, I will get some writing done this weekend, and the very nice Austin SCBWI RA said he'd send us our critiques and conference packet with submission guidelines. A Nathan Bransfordless bright spot, but I'll take what I can get at this point.
