I’m trying to contain myself.

It’s really a very difficult proposition, though.

I feel like screaming from the roof tops (with excitement, that is, lol)!

…to tell you the truth…


Why you ask?

Well……………….Check it out:

The first half of the shipment is here!!! 😀

This was taken yesterday,

later in the afternoon,

right after the boxes were opened.  🙂

Those boxes stacked in a precarious pile behind me are those that have been prepared to go out, but are just missing their books….

Does one of them belong to YOU? 😉

I have to tell you that the last two mornings I’ve been listening to the radio as I take my younger daughter to school.  They have a little segment that gives your daily fortune.  Normally, I never pay any attention to these things.  In fact, I usually miss it when my own is listed, lol!

But, yesterday morning I actually heard it.  It said:

“Libra: Emotion will take precedence over logic.”

hmmm… what does that mean?  Am I going to burst into tears and have (a)nother fit over something else that just might go amiss with this whole project??

On hind sight, the prediction was actually spot on…I did let emotions take over, completely forgetting my common sense.

Common sense and logic do not say that you go crazy and laugh maniacally and scream and whoop at the top of your lungs, jumping up and down and looking like a complete KOOK!

But, that is exactly what happened after I opened those boxes, lol…emotions definitely took precedence.

Crazy Screaming Lady...not at all thinking clearly, lol.

This morning on the way to take my girlie to school, I listened to the radio more closely than I normally do, since yesterday’s was so right on.  This morning’s prediction was this:

“Libra:  The Impossible is becoming the Manageable.”

Yessssssssssssssss!!!! (finally)

Happy Friday to you!

    Yippee! I’m going crazy right here along with you! Now I have to try and convince Mathieu (he walked in the house at the wrong moment) that I haven’t completely lost my mind and do not need to be taken down to the Royal Ottawa for the next Basket Making 101 class! Wish me luck!

    OMG! I just realized with all those boxes of books you are going to be a very busy girl signing, packaging and mailing them all out! Yikes! I hope you have something special scheduled for yourself as a gifts to yourself for all you have done! LOL

    YIPPIE! ! ! ! ! Yep, I am jumping, yelling(at the top of my lungs), and everything else with you. I know that you are just beside yourself as we all are for you. I tell people that I have NO patience because I am NOT a doctor. Now take a breath before you loose your voice from yelling for joy.
