Today was a wonderful day mail-wise:

     My 'new toy' finally got shipped that I've been waiting on getting shipped for a week and a half. Yay! Now I can check the tracking rather than checking the order status page three times a day! ;P

     Got something in the mail I commissioned back in the beginning of February, and I am delighted with it. I plan to spam you lovely readers with burbling and photos, hopefully tomorrow. But right now I'm far too pooped--

     Yet it was worth it. The big map of the towns of northern Bivord with the dozens of town names I need for continuing The Great Wave is done at last! Feels great to have my 23rd map up on 'Map Mania,' and know that the other map I want to make for The Great Wave is small fry in comparison.
Emotional Status:
exhausted map overload

Glad to hear your new toy is on its way.
Looking forward to seeing pictures of your commission piece. So nice you got it so quickly.

Great job on getting the map done so fast.

Didn't feel quick to me, but the artist was great about keeping me up to date with her progress.

Thanks! Hopefully I can finally get back to writing this evening.

Sounds like some intriguing things there. Do you enjoy making maps?

Generally I do, what I struggle with are making building plans, and in this case, loads and loads of new names that should all have a reason or story behind them.

Thanks! I certainly procrastinated on it long enough. ;)

I know I will!

I feel the same way. I'm making myself wait until I get through my morning's stretch of email/blog postings before I check the tracking on a package that was shipped yesterday. My roomba died sometime last week, and it took us several days to convince ourselves that it really was dead and not just needing a break... and my sanity is definitely hinged on whether or not we own a working roomba, since I'm too fat to bend over and pick up the cheerios and goldfish off the floor and too lazy to pull out the REAL vacuum cleaner. ;) So I'm waiting on UPS to save my sanity.

David didn't get out of work until really late yesterday, and he had a headache and was exhausted by the time he got home, but I still convinced him to read a bit more of your book with me before falling asleep.... I can't say we're ENJOYING it right now, but we're definitely hooked!

Little one just woke up so I'm gonna cut my ramblings here ...

Re: whee!
I am going to have to see that roomba sometime. I had this false impression they were more for showing off than anything. ;) I hope it comes fast for you!

Yes, Christi is enjoying it as in 'can't put it down' more than happy about what's happening, I'm sure. I hope you wind up less unhappy with Geren, however! =)

Have a great Wednesday! *hugs*
