haven't failed yet

i told her
i usually stare at the ceiling for a day or two grateful that i haven't failed yet,
after a packet is turned in. this time, i have nothing but deadlines. everywhere i turn, someone needs something else, and these aren't the kind of deadlines one simply ignores, believe me, i would if i could. i can't.

so i turned in my packet, for better or worse. i will be humble, submissive, grateful, and brief. i will revise. and get help when i'm ready to shoot myself.

it's worked out.

my daughter makes me laugh. i'm grateful our relationship continues to improve. i wish i could say the same for so many others in her life.

that's all. the good news. i'm focused on that.

i haven't failed yet. :)
