A Bad Surprise and a Good One

Guess what woke me up at 4 this morning?  A bad surprise of the stomach variety.  (Guess who called at 2:30?  Tootsie Roll's school nurse with similar surprise).

Guess what arrived in the mail today?  An ARC of Matched by Ally Condie that I won from Mary Campbell at Writer's Butt Does Not Apply to Me!

Yay and woohoo!  This has definitely made my day.  Thank you, Mary!

Aww, I hope you and your daughter feel better soon!

Enjoy Matched. I read it in ARC form too and thought it was great!

Oh Goodness gracious! I certainly hope you feel better soon as well as your daughter. I'd rather have a cold than a stomach bug!
Take good care...

I hate to say "Yay for stomach bugs" but at least this way you get a whole day to read it, I've heard it's good!

That stomach stuff is EVERYWHERE. Our prek-3rd grade elementary school only has about 170 kids and we had 27 out today - mostly with that. Take care!

I ADORED MATCHED!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously... the best book I read last year. I loved it so much! I can't wait for book 2! It's so addicted!

I can't wait to hear your thoughts!!! I'll check back later for your blogfest entry! I'm having fun reading about mugs... who knew that would be enough to keep me warm on a chilly day!
