As my Facebook status declares: "[I] am dripping with eager anticipation. That's right; [I'm] down-right giddy."
Why, do you ask?
Because I'm Awaiting the Arrival of A. I'm joyful that my lovely he will soon be here, after a five-hour drive to the University of Iowa (hopefully without a blow-out this time).
In fact, I am so happy that I cannot find much else to say; I thought I would just share my exhilaration with all of you (since many of you--especially the readers that are new--have only seen *part* of my critical dark side).
And, to answer another question you might have: Yes, I do intend plan to hug-tackle A. when I first see him, as somewhat depicted in the picture above. (I don't think I'll immediately plaster myself to him, but I guess we'll see. I'm sure he'll be happy either way--Right honey?)
So, if you don't mind, I must get back on track: cleaning, grocery shopping, and homework. I want to enjoy every second that I have with A. this weekend, starting with the initial "squeeze you hard-bury my face into your shoulder-resent letting go" hug.
