Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page.

This month's Mailbox Monday blog tour is hosted Alyce from At Home With Books.

Check out the blog and post all the new books you acquired last week.

The Obsidian Pebble: First in The Artefact Series by RA Jones (from author)

From author's website:
Oz Chambers lives in a haunted house. His mother wants to move, but Oz believes that the old place is too full of mystery to leave. When he and his friends hear ghostly footsteps, they decide to investigate the house’s eerie reputation. But what Oz hasn’t bargained for is that he’s not alone in his quest and that solving Penwurt’s puzzles will uncover a murky secret, and the chilling realisation that nothing is quite what it seems.

Technology Hates Me

Our router decided to die so I am mooching off free coffee shop wifi. I picked up the macdaddy of all routers(that Best Buy sells, that is), now I just have to wait until my husband is home from work for more than an hour for it to get set up. I know I could set it up if I really wanted to but I am also certain that I would find some way to screw it up and just cause him more work in the long run.

On a side note...I am LOVING this rain that we are finally getting!

And to show my happy spirit, please enjoy this lovely pic of me in San Diego back in November. We were determined to the day a Sea World and a little rain wasn't going to stop us.
I'm embracing the drowned rat look.  Feel free to mock.
We decided we had to go on the outside water ride before we left and this is how we all looked afterwards.  And no, I don't really know why I decided I still needed to use an umbrella.

It could be worse...

What I hate:
I gave myself extra time this morning to get coffee before work and apparently the woman wrote down my order wrong but I didn't have time to get it fixed.  As I was walking into work, grumbling to myself about my stupid drink, I put the entirely full cup on top of my lunch to open the door and spilled it all down the front of myself!  Argh!


I also saw this little bit of awesomeness on Shelf Awareness which made me smile.

Facelift in progress

You may remember that post I wrote months ago about how I was going to update my blog.  Well...I finally got over my scardy-cat-ness of change and beautification is here!  Organization is coming...
