Nostalgic Anticipation

Hi There!

Just yesterday, I was thinking about all those
times that I was SOOOO excited about "something",
and that the clock's hands seemed to just
draaaaag on, ever so slowly, when I was a child....

Like, the last day of school, eh?
Half of the class would be staring outside and almost ALWAYS,
it was a beautiful spring/summer day,
with the promise of wonderful things to occur
during the upcoming summer months.

Or when my Mom said I could get my ears pierced,
AFTER I finished grade three...
Boys, THAT was a long school year!!!
*grin*

Or, when I'd lay in bed,
wondering if Santa would arrive
BEFORE I closed my eyes
and wondering WHAT he would leave
underneath the tree and if I would like it,
and did he remember what I had asked for,
and what would happen if I saw him, and,
and, and....
"HEY! That sounds like hooves,
on our roof!!!"

And yesterday, while daydreaming,
I was thinking to myself, that those sweet almost
"wriggling-worm-like-just-can't-sit-still-feelings"
hardly ever occurred as an adult.

You know what I mean, eh?

Okay, maybe the last day of work, before vacation...
But, that's simply not the same feeling, right?

I'm sure you'll probably all agree with me, on this.
*grin*

I even mentioned it to my co-worker, yesterday.

"Remember when, (fill in the blanks)?"
And she chuckled and said, "Yep, I remember!"

Anyhow, today I came home from work
and the first thing Gilbert says is,
"You have a package and it's from Jo."

My first thoughts were,
"Gee, I wonder what Jo sent and WHY?"

LOL

Mind you, Jo was my first Secret Pal,
three (?) years ago and she still sends
me surprise gifties, every now and then.

Here's a picture of her gifty box.



So, even before I sat down to eat dinner,
I looked at the box and I read:

"No Peeking!"

HUH?!?!?
*scratching my head*



Why wasn't I allowed to NOT peek?!??!



We're JUST the 3rd of December, right?

These are some of the thoughts that
were rolling around in my head,
till I read:

"Merry Christmas"



GOOD LORD!!!

I think that's when my knees buckled!

Jo wants me to WAIT till CHRISTMAS?!??!?

Does she REALIZE how curious I am!??!?!?!?



She wrote "Christmas Decorations", on there!

Thank goodness -
otherwise, I could see myself (very easily) drop the package
from the top of the stairs and go,
"Oooops"

LOL

Or, how about I accidently smeared some dog food
on the outside of the package and let Thunder
go to it?

*grin*

No!!! I won't do that, but HONESTLY JO!!!!

You DO realize that I might put it in a
"safe spot" and completely forget where I put it?!??

LOL

Thanks, from the bottom of my heart,
my No-Longer-Secret-Pal!

Canadian Bear Hugs,
from me to you, Jo!

That is quite the package Rosa- Waiting and the anticipation can be the best part and sometimes too hard to bear- I can hardly wait to see what she has sent you. I am sure that it is something special- just like you.
Have a terrific day.
Warmest regards,
Anna
