Today was already a good day. My Mom is in town, visiting. It has been a lovely visit. And we went for dinner at my favorite sushi restaurant, and had a glorious evening. We drove home with the windows down and Springsteen turned up loud.
I got home, turned on Twitter, and discovered that my story, "Breaking the Frame," had been nominated for a World Fantasy Award. I burst into tears of utter shock and happiness.
Mom came back over, and she brought champagne.
As Tuesdays go, this one didn't suck.
