querying

I am happy no one told me querying was a full-time job, otherwise I may never have finished my story.  Holy crow!  I can’t believe how many hours I’ve spent on this process!  Now I have 3 full-time jobs-teaching, mothering, and querying!  Oh, and somewhere in there, maybe I can write some new stuff!
As of today, I’ve queried 22 agents, and spent at least 22 hours querying those 22 agents-I’m quite sure.  So far, three rejections (new one today, Tara), and one partial request-which I’m waiting to hear on.  This last rejection to my email query was so kind and personalized that I was compelled to send a tiny snail mail thank you note-I appreciate kind rejection-definitely tosses a pillow under your butt on the fall down.
On an unrelated note, I am depressed to say I found one more thing I cannot eat anymore-Mentos-one of my favorites.  Dang things have wheat in them.
