I had the best suprise today when I got home from taking my DD to the Superman movie. My package was waiting for me on the kitchen table. So I had to rip into it right away! As I pulled everything out, my DD pounced on everything, she needed it :sunny: , Wow who knew there was something other than pineapples in Hawaii??? OK just kidding. Thank you so much Mommytotwo. We will enjoy everything. Just so you know, my DD decided she needed the necklace, well atleast until bath time....Shhh don't let her know that though. :thumbsup2

I'm due in Feb around valentine's day (though I hope NOT ON V-day!). I know what you mean about all day sickness. I've been slowly getting a little better this week but still not really feeling up to actually moving. I am so glad that it's summer b/c I don't know how I would deal with this if I had to be in class. (I finish my masters in Dec). I commend you for doing it with already having a kid and doing the house stuff!!

Thank you so much Mommytotwo. I love everything. Okay I haven't been able to try it all yet, but my daughter loves the popcorn (it's almost gone) I have the calendar hanging in the bedroom, and I have to ask if the company that makes the graham cracker animal cookies has a website or something, those are the BEST animal cookies I've had, DD and I are addicted.

I got a package today from Janice (jpmandan)

She sent me

Mayhaw jelly. Never heard of it but can't wait to try it.
Pecan log
Peanut brittle (I think. Haven't tried it yet)
A beautiful ornament called Angel of the Bay. It is made with a shell.
Brochures, pamplets, paper and a video PC CD of her area. The CD is part of a fund raiser for her area which was devistated by Katrina.

Thank you so much. Everything is wonderful. I hope that Katrina did not cause you any loss.

I'm glad it got there so fast! Mayhaw jelly is a commom homemade jelly here in the South. Mayhaws are little like grapes. The peanut brittle is really pecan pralines. The Angel of the Bay is made by a lady here, and the box was made by her husband with driftwood and cardboard.

My house lost alot of shingles and we had some downed trees. The "usual" hurricane damage. My community was deeply affected (as you could see from the CD). My sons lost their school and are going to school in portable classrooms now. Many of my students moved or were left homeless. We are definitely recovering though! Thank you for asking!

I'm glad you like everything. Maybe, if we do one of these exchanges next year, I'll be able to add more to the box.

I got:
some candy yum yum
mayhaw jelly (cant wait to try never heard of it before)

The candles smell great and love the postcards. They fit in with my new plan of adventure (a cross-country - and back - drive...probably next year or the year after). Going to avoid the interstates as much as possible.

And I'll enjoy the popcorn while watching my Film Noir collection I just got!

Thanks a mil from the Ville!

DC still says it is at the PO. I stopped by today and they looked it up on their system. It says the same thing. She is going to keep an eye on it, but said that priority mail is not guaranteed to be there by a certain date. She told me the other day a package took 30 days. I hope it arrives soon.

Janice,
Another larger pecan log arrived for DH. I had it on the counter for him when he got home from work. He was extremely happy. He said she sent me another one? Of course, aren't DISer the best. He was licking his lips over it. He did promise to let me have a taste, but I may have to wrestle him for more than a taste. :rotfl: Thank you for being so kind. You really made a big boys day.

Really. I thought that it was always PRIORITY in going out. And that usually it takes anywhere from 3-5 days to get to its destination.
Hopefully it will be mailed out SOON.

An August 4 start to school lets us have the first semester of school finished Dec. 15, but it still does seem EARLY. Then we get to start fresh in Jan. for our second semester. We finish up school May 22, 2007! (Oh, and we head to WDW on May 27!)

We held registration last week, and I have mostly all students that I've taught their brothers and/ or sisters or know their family. If I didn't know them already, I've called them and had nice conversations with them. My student's parents are fabulous, and I'm blessed to have them! :love: On a side note, we are very nearly back to the same number of students as before Katrina!! :woohoo: Our recovery is coming along nicely!

Meriweather, tell DS Happy Birthday on Aug. 4 from us in South MS!

But maybe down south the schools are air conditioned? We also don't get that long of a Christmas break and usually get out a day or two after Memorial Day. Anyone do year round school?

I think it's odd it has a number and nobody can tell us anything. I talk to my PO and they act like I'm stupid for asking. If the PO is so confused, why don't they just send it back to sender?

OR there might have been some extra super duper good stuff in it and the post office took it? :rotfl2:

Yep, I've talked to both of my PO. We're a very small community and they usually just forward it on to where it needs to go. I should call them up and ask if it's in their break room ;)

Especially my work PO (which is the zip code I put) is very small and our post master is looking out for it. I know it isn't here today at work. Not sure about home yet.
