And just to stress myself out more.... I've made his crazy goal to have my next book written by May. I'm about 60 pages in and have it outlined, so we'll see if the rest of my life will cooperate with my writing goals.
So I went to the mailbox today for the first time in over a week, which is not unusual. Our mailman probably thinks we're out of town a lot. We're not.
Our mailbox is one of those communuty ones that is about seven houses down from me. SEVEN houses. That may not seem like a lot, especially seeing how our houses are so close they're practically on top of each other, but for some reason, I can't get there. It probably doesn't help that a few weeks ago, I jogged down there while my kids were watching a movie, and I jogged back (because it is never a good idea to leave my headstrong/creative kids alone for longer than a minute) and left my keys in the mail box. My car keys, my house key, my mail key--all dangling from the outside lock on the mailbox. They hung there for two hours. Until I decided to take my kids to McDonald's for dinner and couldn't find my keys. As I ran to the mailbox, hoping they'd still be there, my neighbor was driving toward me with her hand out her window, my keys in her hand. I love my neighborhood. I can't believe no one took my keys, that were in my mailbox, where my address was plainly displayed. That could've been an invitation someone couldn't refuse. Luckily I have great neighbors.
Now I drive to the mailbox. Yes, the one that's seven houses down. Because you can't leave keys in a mailbox when you need them to turn on your car to leave the mail box.
Anyway.... When I got to the mailbox, I found these inside. I love getting packages in the mail!
And I also I received this:
Okay, you may have to squint to see this dress, but it is my bridesmaid dress for my sister's wedding that's on Saturday. That's right. Her wedding is in three days, and the bridesmaid dress just arrived today (well, that may not be entirely accurate because I haven't checked my mailbox in a while, but still.) Now I can finally breath easy and not be afraid I'll stand out/ruin all of my sister's pics.
Anyone else get anything fun in the mail this week? (Or have a propensity for losing things?)
