I also signed up the same day I received the visa and it instantly said optimized and I have not POE'd as yet. I do know or from following the ELIS forum I've read that production of the actual green card will not be initialized until we pay the fee OR POE, whichever is second

does that mean that the GC is ready and awaiting my arrival or what? lol

That is good news! It means your fee has made it through all the steps, now they are just waiting to generate it and send it out. It will probably show up about 6 weeks after you arrive. The green card is not a big deal because your visa is a temporary green card for up to a year.

Be sure to get to a SSA office as soon as possible after POE to ensure production of your SSN. We followed the rules that said wait three weeks only to be disappointed.
