I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus.
The first reason is the usual Thanksgiving/Guests excuse. I was busy shopping, cooking and entertaining for over a week! I also hit the Black Friday sales for the very first time (and did it all wrong- I've already developed a different plan of attack for NEXT year).
The second reason is that I started reading the Twilight series.
Heaven have mercy. I had no idea it would turn into such an obsession! I mean, I've heard poeple talking about it, but I just had NO IDEA.
On Saturday I read Twilight in six hours while my last guest was out on the town. Once I'd picked it up, I could NOT put it down. Gilberto was on child duty the whole time. I was so wrapped up in reading I sort of disappeared from life and don't have a clue about what they even did, but Gabi was still alive and happy when I finally finished. That's all that matters, right?
When my friend got back to the house, I dragged him right back out to see the movie. He'd left me a totally normal person and returned to someone with mussed hair and eyes blazing with desperation. He knew he had to go or I might combust. And bless his heart for not leaving me alone in the theater after the first 15 teenage angst filled minutes.
On Sunday, after saying goodbye to my friend, I read New Moon. Then went and bought the final two books and read half of Eclipse last night. Gabi pretty much ran wild the whole day (I did feed her, but I don't remember what). I brought it to work with me today so I could read on my lunch break, and any other break I get. I might even be able to work it out so that I have more breaks than working time.
I feel like I shouldn't even be blogging! Like Bella and Edward are suspended in time and that it's not fair to them to not be reading and making their story come to life. I said I was obsessed, but I might also be slightly insane.
There's only one thing nagging at me. What am I going to do when I finish the fourth book? How could the author end at only four? I'm going to need more!
