Birth Announcement!!!!

I have a brand new, squeaky clean, infant, baby-child. Birthdate: Wed., Sept. 22nd, 2010. 5:56 p.m. Weight: 15 ounces. Eyes: blue. The delivery was safe-and-sound. Straight forward, uneventful. Mama & baby are doing fine. Mama's a bit overly-ecstatic, complete with sleep deprivation and audible sighing. Baby seriously has that new-baby smell. (New-book-smell ranks second: following actual new-baby-smell and preceeding new-car-smell. IMHO.) I've been sniffing deeply, ever since Allen popped the UPS overnight-package, containing two advance copies into my hands.... just after the appetizers had been served above.

All of this excitement began right after Sarah & Scott picked us up at the airport having just flown in from our Rockies adventure. [Yes, I am completely behind in my updating. The connectivity in the mountains was hit & miss. I'll back track later... start imagining golden Aspen trees spakling in the sun.] I could have been suspicious -- what with them coming in two cars, but they explained easily enough that we wouldn't fit comfortably with all the luggage, even in their mini-van. Turns out, Scott & Allen went to the warehouse to pick up THE package. Oh, yeah, there were all those tornado sirens blaring & us going down to the basement for safety. When we got the all clear we loaded everybody back up & made the quick hop to TGIF for my big surprise: the unveiling, the official birth.

Today the whole shipment of an entire skid of boxes of books was delivered safely to the warehouse. They're here!! They're here!! And not only are the books printed, but the CD inserts have also arrived in our absence!!! Whoohooo. For all those of you betting on whether this could get printed in under a month, the answer is: you-bet-ya!!

For the life of me, I can't figure out why it took five years to get this accomplished??? {{{Laughing-seriously-out-loud-at-myself.}}} In retrospect, it seems completely easy-peasy. At some point I'll need to do some reflection on having a goal, breaking it down, bite-size pieces, micro-movements, list making, oh, and the website about thoughts-becoming-things. ENORMOUS thanks to my friend Renee Sutherland, of Conscious Discipline fame, for turning me on to that brilliant resource.

Now to get the image uploaded to my website, so that people can order it. One step at a time. One step at a time. One step at a time. Exhale Debbie. Exhale.
