Not only is it my favorite book maybe of all time but it is in color & hardcover. Yesterday Garrett & I went to Barnes & Noble to spend a gift card he had received from our dear neighbors and my heart went pitter patter when I saw Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
I own the paperback version but to see it in this new version was a beautiful thing because yesterday I had an Alexander morning. I'm usually pretty good at keeping everything together & moving but I think my normal chaotic frenzy with a layer of the baby has taken over my brain & slowed my reaction time led to an Alexander morning.
All was well by the end of the day & I am resolved to start keeping lists. I never really needed them before but I think that my increased age in this pregnancy is going to push me over the edge.
And something that I cannot blame the pregnancy for but perhaps shows my aging is the fact that I never posted the winner from my virtual food drive benefiting the North Texas Food Bank. Sincere apologies.
In case you missed our drive you can read about it here, and here. In a matter of a few short weeks you guys raised $647 which translated into 2,588 meals for North Texas. Our goal was to raise enough to provide 1,000 meals and I am forever grateful for your generosity.
Without anymore delay here is the random winner of a gift certificate for three of Ella's Publications. Kath please email me at withoutfilters(at)gmail(dot)com to claim your prize.
