Today's the Day!

This blog entry is going to make me sound a little crazy...

We all get excited about things right? Well, I've been waiting for today since early March. Yes 5 months of waiting and pining and finally its here. Today the next book in the Vampire Academy series came out! Woo Hoo!!!

I didn't pre order it. I've had bad experiences with that.

My dear husband trying to do a sweet thing pre ordered the last Harry Potter book for me when it was coming out. Well, the book finally made it to my door a week after the book hit the stores. Yes a week! Might not be a big deal to you, but it was a huge deal to me. Everywhere I went people were reading their Harry Potter books and everyday I went home to find an empty mail box. However when it finally came it was like Christmas Morning!

Anyhow, I don't pre order things anymore. So today I thought I would waltz into any store and find my book. It's not anything close to Twilight big, but it's pretty popular with its target audience of 15 year olds girls (yes I realize I am a 25 year old girl). So I went to Wal-Mart, not there. I went to Target, not there. I went to Borders, they weren't open yet! Once I got to work I looked online, Borders was sold out already! Panic started to flood me.

This happened to me with Breaking Dawn back in December. I was nearing the end of the third Twilight book and COULD NOT find the 4th book anywhere. I started to cold call bookstores to be told they were sold out over and over again. Luckily this little tiny book store down the street from my office saved the day. They had it in stock and all was right with the world.

Well, Once Upon a Time Bookstore to the rescue again! I went down to the tiny store earlier today and there was my book! Whew! Crisis averted.

I'll probably read this book in a day and have to wait until May of next year for the next one to come out. The cycle will begin again…

On a completely separate topic Jimmy had to take this giant horrific test a few months back in order to be a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

I saw the book he had to study for it and it was not pretty believe me. If you don't pass it you have to wait 90 days and then pay a bunch of money to take it again. Well he finally got the results today, he passed! Yay!
