Then all my authors did that thing they do where they secretly confer and send me their revisions at the same time, two contracts came in for me to go over, and the pipe in my bathroom re-burst.
The bathroom thing wasn't really that bad since my landlord had someone come the next day, and I'm actually excited about the manuscripts, because there are a bunch I'm really looking forward to getting ready to submit to editors. And, of course, I'm SUPER pumped about the contracts and having two more deals to get the year rolling (more about them soon)! So I'm a good busy, but busy nonetheless, which means my one-second daydream of chocolate making is falling by the wayside for now.
Now that John has started his new job as a sous chef in Brooklyn, he has also had a lot on his plate (PUN!), so we haven't had too much time together. I felt really bad about it and battled my inner sleep-craver last Friday to stay up until he got home at 2am so we could watch the new episode of Vikings together. I'm hoping that I can speedily (yet diligently) get through these manuscripts and contract notes so that when his day off on Thursday pops up this week we can do something fun together. Apparently it's going to be 70° in NYC on Thursday, which is crazy but also very opportune, because what sounds better on a day off than a sunny picnic in Central Park?
