The Mail Box Post (April 22nd – 27th)

What a week it has been and I will slowly be back posting all the things I needed to have post the past week and I should apologize if your feed reader gets swamped with posts from me.
If you are on my personal facebook page then you already know what has happened this past week. Its been crazy and I honestly believe things happen in three’s so hopefully good things will now happen. Since most of you aren’t on my personal face book page I shall fill you all in.
It started about two/three weeks ago when I had finalized my BEA roommates (that post is to come) and accommodations (that will be a post probably when I get back from BEA) and we had decided we needed to book by April 13th (we were getting a little worried we wouldn’t find something) so finally finding a place that was somewhat reasonable I was set to book it, when low and behold I get a call from my credit card company saying my card has been compromised. AGH why now, why this week? Thankfully I was able to use my card to reserve the room and I wouldn’t be billed until check in.
It sucks having your card compromised but what can you do. Thankfully since I live in Canada I was still able to use it because here when you swipe the card you need to enter a pin (unlike that of the US I found out).
Fast forward to last weekend that was Michael’s 10th birthday. I went to the bank to change my pin number when I discovered that I already had a huge bill on my credit card, according to the total it showed I spent almost $2600 in a week and I knew that was impossible because I wasn’t out shopping alot last week. Well when I called the credit card it appears that someone in the US took it upon themselves to do 6 cash advances on my card. So to the croaks who did that THANKS ALOT!!!!!!! Not, I told the agent right away when I called and now I am just waiting for the paper work to come in to sign.
So that is number one, number two was while I was getting ready for Michael’s 10th birthday with family I ended up stubbing my big toe really bad (cracked nail etc) and I have been limping around in pain. This is the first time I have ever stubbed it this badly.
At last but not least the major thing that happened this week was on Tuesday I get a call from my mother’s neighbor telling me she fell and was bring rushed to the hospital. We discovered she broke her shoulder very badly and it would require surgery on Friday. Well she fought it every step of the way refusing to allow the nurses to do what they needed to do, refusing her medication, refusing to eat and refusing surgery. Sadly she lost that battle because we made her sign the papers and she is slowly recovering in the hospital. So that is why I haven’t been posting much this week because I am there every day.
Anyways on to the reason of this post…books
I got this one for review:

 The Longest Holiday by Paige Toon. I have never read anything by Paige before but from the back description it sounds really good and the perfect summer reading book.

This week I ended up buying two books as you can. Its been a stressful week/month

 The Elite by Kiera Cass is the second book in the series. Looking forward to starting this series. I love the covers.

Icons by Margaret Stohl’s first solo book. I am so excited to read this and I will probably start this one when I am done writing this post.

So this is what came to my door this week, what about you?
