One Sweet Day

I am not a highly patient person..I don't bust out in anger or rages, I just quietly stew and mutter things under my breath (although the longer I lived in NYC the louder those mutterings became).
I also am not one to show my excitement to the world, unless it has to do with fluffy fur and four paws, then I melt faster than ice cream!!

So it's hard for me to write this, but I just can't contain my excitement any longer. I have been sitting/standing/waiting for the last 9 months for this day to come. I didn't think it would pass by so quickly to be honest with you, but it has been much more bearable than I thought. It's hard to believe that tomorrow is the big day, I'm not sure it has actually sunk it. I was very excited knowing that there would be no work and that I would not have to get up at 5:15am. Sleeping in until 7:00 or so seemed like a dream... and then Mark informed me he needed to go into work early on Tuesday. That means I have to get out of bed at 5:45 and drive him to the bus stop. Lovely. Oh well, at least I can drive him there in my pj's and glasses, come home and crawl back into bed for a few hours. However, once 7:30 rolls around, I need to be ready for the big day. I may have to wait a little bit, as it's not a guarantee that the joyous occasion will commence exactly at 7:30, but yes, tomorrow is the day we welcome the newest member into our family...let me give you a sneak peak:

Yes, this little beauty should be sitting outside the side of my house come noon tomorrow, ready to keep me cool and happy all summer long. No more window AC's, or whatever we had in NYC...no sirree, central AC for us! This could be one of the most exciting days I have had in my life in a long time! Now we just need the programmable thermostat, but since it seems it will be awhile until summer temps arrive, we have a few more days (or weeks) before we need to purchase one.

What a glorious day tomorrow will be (the AC and not going into work!)...wherever you are tomorrow early afternoon, take a minute and think of us and our little guy! I know I will be basking in the gloriousness.
