This weekend was awesome

Two great things happened. One: I’m taking a student to state for the third year in a row. She won third in feature writing and second in editorial writing. WOO HOO!!!!!
Second: I read the best book: Uglies by Scott Westerfelld. AMAZING book. One that needs to be added to the high school reading list. Interestingly enough several of my students had already read it. I can’t believe they didn’t tell me about it. When I got home DD saw me reading it and got all excited. She’d already read it too. I tried to buy Second Helpings, but the book store didn’t have it. 😦
I wish I’d bought Pretties, the second in the Westerfeld trilogy because I REALLY want to know what happens next.
Now I’m reading Jill Shalvis’s Aussie Rules.
And I’m waiting on a shipment from e-Harlequin.
I’m pretty sure I’ve blown the book budget off the charts. But that’s okay since dh’s response when I told him we’d won and were going to state again.. woo hoo(!!!) was “man, that stinks.”
Grrrrr.
