My book being accepted is amazing... a huge thing that happened in a week of huge things.
The same week, my husband was notified that he had been selected as Wyoming State's Assistant Principal of the Year. It was an amazing week for both of us.
Guess which weekend the nation is honoring my husband in Washington DC with the other assistant principals of the year?
The same weekend as the conference I wanted to attend.
As I was bemoaning this fact at writer's club, and that not only would I miss all the great classes and meeting people, but I couldn't enter the contest, and next year I wouldn't qualify because I would have a contract, my wonderful friends nodded and offered sympathy, but their eyes said something else.
"Oh, Krista... it must be so hard to be you."
Somebody take notes for me. I'm going to DC with my Assisitant Principal of the Year and I am going to LOVE it.
