A "just because" present

My dear friend *Patrice* bought me a present. A just-because-I-love-you and I-knew-you'd-like-this present. A book. I book I already own. Normally, I wouldn't be so excited about getting a book I already own. She went to the Cinci Homeschool Conference and brought me a signed copy of Susan Wise Bauer's The Well Trained Mind 3rd Edition. It's not even available on Amazon, yet!

I would NEVER swing the bucks for a book I already own, but I'm SOOOO EXCITED to get the updated version!!

I was so excited that I kept walking around the house cleaning so I can get my work done and hurry up and read it.

I was so excited I kept telling each of my children, "I'm soooo excited!!" Dears that they are, Dd#2 got tired of hearing about my excitement and suggested I just blog about it and get the out the excitement out that was bubbling over. GREAT IDEA!!

I'm soo excited. Do you think the girls at book club will feel unloved if I stay home to read a non-book club book?
