So I know I'm supposed to be on vacation. Along with relaxing, napping, catching up, that usually signifies extra time surrounded by those you love, playing games, watching movies.
For the last few days, okay really only since Saturday, I have been a horrible house guest. Not to mention a terrible mother. I've been busy. Filling my mind with vampiric nonsense. And loving every minute of it. But I finished Breaking Dawn this morning. And now our vacation is BACK ON, BABY!
Just an example of my mind frame on Saturday afternoon when we got home from the store with my very own copy of the new book. I cuddle up on the couch with a blanket and start to read while my kids play on the dining room table and my mom is bustling about the kitchen. Sam kept coming up to me and wanting to ask me questions and show me things. I turned to him after the third attempt or so and actually said to my dear, sweet child, "Sam. Mommy is reading a very important book about vampires. You need to leave her alone for a little while." I think I actually heard my mom snort from the kitchen. Okay, it sounded pretty stupid when you say it out loud like that.
