I took a break from the trip posts just so that I could talk about OTHER things. Like the newest book series that I'm completely obessed with, so much so that I got all 3 huge, thick, books on thursday and I'm on the last one, because when I'm enjoying a book I just can't put it down.
So now I'm left waiting for the fourth to be released on the 2nd of August and I have to keep myself from biting my nails in anticipation, doesn't help that the movie for the series is coming out in December so then I sit and wish the months fly by. By now I'm sure you're wondering just what the heck I'm talking about, so I'll let you in on it.........
Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer
I am completely in love with Edward and Bella, the main characters in the series. Edward is this gorgeous vampire and Bella is the normal girl next door type, a human....they fall in love and from that point on their lives are turned upside down with obstacle after obstacle. I literally could NOT put the first book *Twilight* down, I took it with me to the kitchen while I made dinner, to the bathroom while I overlooked the kid's bath time....even in the car so that I could sneak in some reading at the parking lot when I arrived at the commissary or the BX or the drive thru. It's THAT addictive and this is coming from a full grown woman, an adult, a mother and wife...not a teenager who the Twilight Saga was actually aimed at.
In the meantime while I wait for the fourth book *Breaking Dawn* and the movie to be released, I think I may just pick up Stephenie's other book...The Host.
In the meantime I've also been getting back into my Netflix watching and I started with the first movies on the Queue which were "Elizabeth I: The Virgin Queen". It started a bit slow and I got frustrated during some parts but it changed and I actually enjoyed it. Next on the list is Elizabeth: The Golden Age.
I'm doing absolutely nothing today, my house is clean and the only thing I have to worry about is cooking meals, other than that, I'm free.....free to read or free to watch a movie or whatever I feel like. One thing is for sure, it's too darn hot to be outside, the kids say otherwise because well....because they're doing this:
If only I didn't have this self conscious problem about traumatizing the neighbors with having to see me in a bikini, I too could be throwing myself onto that slide.....but I feel bad for spongebob too, I don't think his idea of fun is my fat butt on his face. LOL
Anyway, I'm out of here, it's time for lunch, I'm going to make some hotdogs on the grill. Yum!
