Grabbing the Hatchet

Shhhh....She Who Refuses To Sleep Like A Normal Human is actually sleeping like a normal human. Perhaps it's because I altered her DNA by pumping her full of cider mill donuts.  See?

Yep, all that stuff around her mouth is pure sugar.  I know, you're in awe of my parenting skills.  It's fine.  I'm used to it. 

So, I thought I'd take this opportunity to share with you my current query stats so far:

Number of queries sent: 44
Number of rejections: 24
Number of full requests: 7
Number of R&Rs: 1
Pounds of chocolate consumed: never mind
Amount of profanity hissed when opening inbox to a new email and discovering that, instead of a response from an agent, some prince in Nigeria wants to give me a million dollars: HUGE

So, as you can see from the stats, particularly the R & R, I'm diving back into my ms to make a few tweaks (or hack the living crap out of it.  Ya know, which ever feels right).

Hi Vivi! Came over here from Creepy Query Girl, stayed for the cute kid pic! Thanks for sharing your querying stats, good luck on the R&R!

HI, Viv. Cute kid. Where'd you get her? Sugar high, she gets that from you, I'm sure.

Good for you for hanging in there. I'm not sure what an R&R is, but I'm sure it must be good, since you're dancing about it, right?

You get offers for money; and I get offers for penis enlargement--huge! (^;

What is R&R, Vivi? Whatever it is, it sounds like it's good!

You're tenacious too. I admire tenacity.
