Susan, I hear your frustration! It's like unwrapping a brand-new Blu-ray disc you received as a gift but not having a Blu-ray player to watch it with, or getting a fancy new gadget only to find that, no, batteries are not included. According to the Apple site, iPad keyboards ordered today from Apple's online store will ship in late April. iPad 3G models are shipping at the end of the month, so there's only two more weeks to wait. Though sadly, staring at an iPad-less keyboard on a desk won't make it any easier to wait.
