Sorry to have left you all hanging out here. I'm sure you've been checking my blog daily (yeah, right) and have been so disappointed that I'm not here. "Where is she? I hope she's ok. Maybe I should call her!" Well, I'm still caught up in the distraction that has consumed me for the last few weeks. Yes, I'm still reading the Twilight series. I'm finally to book 4, Breaking Dawn, the longest of them. I'm nearly done, and can't wait to see the happily ever after, as I'm sure it will be.

Sometimes I feel a little silly reading a book that is intended for adolescents, but it is truly captivating. Stephenie Meyer is a gifted story teller. I'm glad I haven't had to wait for each book to come out. It's been really nice to finish one and simply pick up the next one and continue the story. I even have to stop and think what happened in which book because they have kinda melted into one for me. . . kinda like LOTR! Which really is one book, not three as many think it is. But I digress.

The DVD for Twilight came out at midnight last night. It first appeared on my PPV at 4 a.m. Dana's lucky I wasn't up watching it then. However, I am a little torn. As you know (see previous post) I prefer books over the movies. They are 100% of the time better. I'm afraid I'll be a little disappointed in it, although Cassidy tells me it's pretty close to the book. They are currently filming Eclipse and I believe there are plans to do all of them.

Cassidy's birthday is the 30th. I only have one thing for him. The rest of the Twilight series was supposed to be for him, but I couldn't wait to start the second book. So that's out. Plus, I don't think he's all that interested in them. I guess they're more of a "girl" thing. I keep saying I'm going to do some shopping during lunch, but I can't seem to get my nose out of the book!! Oh, he also just sent me a text: You know what would be better than a birthday cake? A birthday PIE. I guess I'll be baking an apple pie for his birthday.

My other current distraction is that it's tax time!! I hate filing taxes. Each year Dana asks me for receipts, and I have to dig them up. And each year I tell myself I'm going to be more organized next year and have them all ready. And I never am. I'm here alone today, so I suppose I should get the office organized and try to be ready for next spring.
