A few weeks ago (I’ve been terrible about posting regularly) I received a book in the mail that I didn’t order. At first I was confused and a little worried. Had someone ordered something using my card and forgot to change the mailing address? Was this a gift from one of my relatives who are notorious for randomly sending me things? Was I buying books in my sleep? Of course my husband, who called to tell me about the book, was no help at all.
Well as it turned out it was none of the above. Every now and again I sign up for a Goodreads give away. This book was one such book. The give away hadn’t ended and I didn’t receive an email notifying me that I won.
It’s an uncorrected proof and it’s free. Plus I will never turn down a book.
Three cheers for surprise books!
This year, I was able to obtain a new teaching position at the school where I already worked at as a teacher assistant. Nearing the end of the first 9 wks, I finally feel comfortable. The first three weeks felt like pure hell and I didn’t feel like a teacher at all. But now, I’ve found my groove and things have started to settle down. With that being said, many of my projects, including my novel have had to take a seat on the back burner because I needed to focus completely on figuring out just how in the world was I going to work this teaching gig. But I think I have it mostly figured out so it’s time to get back at it.
I wish I could share the pictures of my kids with you guys, they are something else. But I have to respect their privacy. However, they are the cutest little demons I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. ha ha
Until next time ppl!
