Can you say "under the wire"?

Yesterday, Joannie at CK emailed me with the official bad news: my layout never made it there, so it wasn't going to be in the May issue (see this post for more info). She told me I could recreate it for possible pub in the June issue; it wasn't garanteed, but there was a good chance. She even offered to look at some more of my work to see if something else could fit instead. But for now, she had to make another choice for the May issue. Sigh, someone else's layout...

Then, later that day, I got an email from her entitled: Guess what came in the mail today? YES!!!! She came back from lunch and it was waiting for her on her chair!!! So it'll be in the May issue after all! Woot!

Salut maman, j'espere que tout va bien! On t'aime!

Low and High all in one day. Wow. Congratulations to the mailman who got it there in time!! CK sounds very generous. I can't wait to see your layout published.

fantastic!!!! that's such great news to get after spending the day being quite disappointed, I'm sure!
I've had this happen a couple of times -- it's frustrating but one of the risks that comes with the territory, I think...
