Song of the South

Based on what Bones told me and how he's been practicing, I feel certain he passed the audition. Now he goes into what they call 'the lottery'. First step is passing the audition, second step is getting your name pulled.

I have no control over this part.

We find out in April...

You've done all you can - no point fretting about that over which you have no control. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, and all that sort of thing:)

Still hoping for good things.

good luck, Bones!

I know what Patti says makes sense, however, I know exactly how hard it is to put into practice. Sit down now and think of a few things you can use to occupy your mind... write them down. When you find yourself fretting about the selection lottery - pull those things out and concentrate on them to the exclusion of all else.

If you can make those other things wacky enough - like writing the plot of a novel in your head - it can divert the obsessive round and round thoughts. That's the goal. It doesn't solve the problem (only the lottery will do that) but it can break the cycle.

That's a long time to wait. How do they notify you?

April! How long is that in teenager years?

Carl- Well, he's 10, so to him this is a non-event. He doesn't give it a 2nd thought. If this were one of my teenagers? This would equate probably to 4 years waiting...
