Today MIGHT be THE DAY.
It might be the day that the e-mail goes out alerting wanna-be Mom's Panelists that they have made it to the second round.
Then again, today might NOT be that day.
Either way, I'm having a hard time concentrating on much today. I am obsessively checking my e-mail. I freak every time my Blackberry chirps at me, alerting me of a new message. I am staying 'online' at the one Disney board that I frequent. I'm on Twitter.
I am totally CONNECTED today.
And I know I'm not alone. There are 20,000 people out there waiting to hear if they've 'made it' to Round 2.
Yes, I said TWENTY THOUSAND.
Have I mentioned that only TEN people are going to be chosen for this year's Mom's Panel?
You do the math. My odds, in a word, suck.
And yet here I am .... fretting over something that will likely not occur.
But I have to keep wishing and hoping and waiting until the time comes when I know FOR CERTAIN that it's not meant to be this year. And when (if) that time comes, I'll move on and try again next year.
For now, I will keep clicking "check mail".
Because, when you wish upon a star......
6:16 pm update: So far, today was not 'the day'.
