King Leary by Paul Quarrington (and other stuff).

Given how much I disliked the book at the beginning, I was surprised by how much I cared at the end and how affected I was. Full review: King Leary by Paul Quarrington

This book was my choice for Ontario for the Canadian book challenge.

In non-book related news...

J has been sick since Saturday. Today was the first day he seemed somewhat like himself. He ate and I made him smile. I think there's hope for him yet.

L had a "fog day" yesterday. Technically she shouldn't have but she wasn't the only in-town kid to not go. I gave her a hard time since she was two blocks away from the school when she decided to come home but what I didn't tell her was that I never went to school if the buses were cancelled. It was more fun making her justify her decision.

Last night, the weather chick said it was going to be horrible this morning. Expect bus delays, probably cancellations! She got us all keyed up for a snow day and then this morning? Nothing. Of course it snowed like mad later but a fat lot of good that did us.
