Why I haven't blogged in a week.

I have been rather MIA this week, due to the fact that it is one of the few weeks a year that I am employed full time. Last week also I am very busy helping my husband finish up a painting job. Between the two of us, we spent about 70 hours last week painting. May I never see a paint roller again.

This week I have spent unpacking products for Global Views. It is rather tiring to be on your feet all day long, when you are not used to it. Hopefully I won't have to spend all of my pay check at the chiropractor.

We are almost done. I really hope I don't have to work tomorrow.

I am very impress with those of you other bloggers who have full time blogs, families, and still write regularly. Somehow when I come home from work with the energy of a wet noodle I don't sit down and write.

I am suppose to be throwing a birthday party for Diana tomorrow. I wish there was a way out of it. Anyone know of a way to get out of throwing a party for your ten year old daughter when you have already promised her? Yea, I didn't think so either. She has been planning this event for months, constantly talking about it. She has added to it, re planned, and changed her mind over and over again. I figured there was no harm or cost in dreaming and planning, but now it may be time to pay the piper.

In other news, I have finally read Twilight and New Moon. I have about 100 pages left in Eclipse. I have enjoyed reading for the fun of reading. I am not sure that I am as big a fan and everyone else. Not that I can't see why they would like the books and I am glad to be on the inside so to speak, so I can carry on conversations with the rest of the world who have read it. I just didn't LOVE LOVE LOVE them. And I am OK with that.

I did however pretty much hate the movie. I saw it the day after I read the book and I think it would be better to have more space to forget the billion details in the book that are different from the movie. Just saying.

I did like New Moon, which seems to be surprising to many people. What I liked about it was the way she described so accurately what it is like to grieve when your heart is broken in two. I could really relate to that part of the book.

Some time this weekend, I hope to post about my crazy adventure getting Jared off on a trip to Seattle yesterday. It was fraught with peril, suspense, and air port employees. You won't want to miss it.

Yeah, the movie sucked. The books were OK. They were fine. Meh. But at least you are now in the know!

I don't think it would have mattered how much time between book and movie, 'cause I had a long time and I still hated it!!

I did like the first book, not like~liked though and I made it through #2 okay, but I couldn't take 3 and 4. I was so tired of all the re-telling over and over! So I just read the beginning and endings!

Sorry things have been so crazy 4 u! I agree about the books. The were OK, but nothing to get in a fit about.
I just waited the whole movie for the fight at the very end. Makes the rest of the movie kinda disappointing!

Just blog surfing here & stumbled across your blog. As we have imaginary pet gerbils (hamsters fit into that category, too, right?), I thought I'd visit your blog.

My fave Twilight books are #1 & 4...

I'm glad that you've had a little time to just sit and read, even if it wasn't the BEST BOOK EVER.
