We Have Lift-Off


Betty Keira gives me way too much credit.

For what, you ask? For being a hard worker...being organized...getting things done. She usually then indulges in a bit of self-deprecation - describing herself as 'bone-idle'. She hardly ever lays around eating bon-bons while reading Betty Neels. Hardly ever.

All week I have had our Bettysday prizes staring at me...I could have sent them sooner, but I had to look up addresses (I finally saved them in a folder for easier access), find boxes (one of the boxes I ended up altering to fit), find the right tape, and then ship them. It's not like I live a long way from the post office - it's only 3 miles away. It's not that I have to take anyone with me, such as toddlers in car seats...I think it's just that I don't like extra errands, and the post office is the opposite direction from most of my other weekly errand destinations.

I can't tell you what a relief it was to drop four packages off at the post office. All our Bettysday Tribute Contest winners should be receiving their prizes by the end of next week. I even included an extra prize for Betty Ross for coining the term 'Bettysday'.
