Yesterday Shawn came home from work, as usual, and brought in the mail, as usual.
There was a package for me.
I had not been expecting a package. I had not ordered anything. Last weekend was Fathers' Day, not Mothers' Day. I could not imagine what this package could be, although it looked like a book. Books are one of my favorite things.
Open the drawer, lift out the scissors, slice through the yellow envelope lined with bubble wrap...
It was this book!
Of course I remembered filling out an online form to see if I could get selected to review the book, but I didn't know I'd been chosen. How exciting! Things like this don't happen to me!
Shawn--being in sales--was totally impressed by this marketing concept. I ran upstairs to the computer and checked back at Emily's blog to see if I could learn more about what I was supposed to do next. I found that I was supposed to have received an email by June 18th, telling me I'd been selected.
I didn't remember receiving it.
Shawn and I walked the dog (the one that can walk without going into cardiac distress). Shawn told me I should do a gmail search for Simply Tuesday.
This morning I did the search, and sure enough, the missing email surfaced. "Congratulations! You've been chosen to be part of Emily's launch team!"
Well now. This is pretty exciting.
I have a book to read. I'll let you know what I think of it, soon!
