Vote with Your Hope
I should be in a better mood. The long, cold, bleak month of January is over. And February with its light, frivolous holidays is half done. Despite the fact that Punxsatawney Phil saw his shadow, spring is still around the corner.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 came home from school on February 1st talking about groundhogs and predictions. "We had to vote on whether or not we think he'll see his shadow," Thing 1 explained.
"What was your vote?" I asked her.
"Well, I think he is going to see his shadow, but I hope he doesn't" she said. "So, I voted with my hope."
So, why do I feel so melancholy? Is it because I thought by now I would have made more strides with my current WIP? Is it because I think it will never be as funny or as clever as NINJA PIGS?
Why can't I be more like Jordan and vote with my hope?
