It's 3 a.m., Do You Know Where Your Mommy Is?

The only problem with falling in bed at 7 p.m. is that, come 2 a.m., you're wide awake. I'm taking half my usual dose of levothyroxine in preparation for some blood tests and wow, has the exhaustion knocked me on my behind. I've been keeping myself going by slurping copious amounts of Mt. Dew (I'm probably the only person on Earth who considers 1 or less/day copious!), but last night, I could no longer keep my eyes open. I dropped at 7. By 2, I was feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Apparently, my 5-year-old could sense my wakefulness, since he very thoughtfully chose that moment to scream, "Mommy!" Turns out, he'd had a little accident in his bed and couldn't find any dry underwear to change into. I used my Mommy powers to get the situation under control. He's now burrowed under his quilt in my room, snoozing away. And me? Well, I'm enjoying the quiet that is 3 a.m. at my house. It's so peaceful, I just might start making this my usual waking time. Yeah, probably not, but still ...

Anyway, Random.org has picked the winner of Come Sunday by Isla Morley. Ole Mr. Random didn't have to work too hard on this one since only 3 people entered the giveaway! I think that's the smallest number of entrants I've ever had. Oh well, fewer players, better odds all around, right? So ... congratulations to Linda, our big winner! If you'll email me with your address, I'll pass it onto Isla's publicist, who will send your book on its way. Thank you to all who entered the contest!

Speaking of contests, don't forget to enter to win a hardcover copy of Wicked Girls by Stephanie Hemphill. It's a creepy YA novel about the Salem witch trials - perfect for Halloween. Click here to enter.

Happy reading!
