It was a really busy weekend.
That is, if by "busy" you mean "busy reading 4,000 pages of yesteryear's hottest teenager vampire romance novels." Then yes, I was busy. But I finished!! All four books (and 3/5 movies) in 10 days. That's pretty impressive when you consider that I also work full time and occasionally like to stop to eat and breathe.
And help this one put animals into and out of Noah's ark.
|This is actually the only picture I took the ENTIRE WEEKEND. I have failed at life.|
I had a mini-book club in the break room at work today during lunch. Luckily, several of my coworkers are fellow avid YA saga readers, so we had an excellent discussion about some of our favorites. I'm trying to pick what saga to tackle next, and as boring as it may seem, I'm pretty sure I'm just going to reread Harry Potter. I know I mentioned this a few months ago, but I still think it's my best bet. I need to read more slowly this time and actually absorb more. But I might wait til I go to the beach this summer to do it. Patience, grasshopper.
In non-book news...ummm...well, there's not much. We haven't slept in a few nights, so that's something new. Millie hasn't put us through that since she was about 6 weeks old, so I'm sorely out of practice...but she's been running a fever, and apparently fevers and sleep don't mix. We got her to the doc today and discovered that she has a sinus infection, which is something that I definitely did not think babies could get. It sounds so old! Anyway, that's the explanation for the fever and general fussiness, so hopefully her delicious pink amoxicillin will get everything cleared up and she'll feel better soon. Oh, and she'll sleep.
Don't worry, though- when she isn't burning alive or refusing to be put down, she's up to her regularly scheduled adorable antics. My current favorite, of course, is babbling mamamamama. I'm pretty sure that nothing will ever beat that. Oh, except for when she says mamamama while reaching her arms up to me. Be still my little heart.
And that about wraps up some of the least exciting (to you!) days ever. Oh! I did take a few hours out of my busy reading/snuggling schedule to go to Amanda's baby shower yesterday!! Naturally, I didn't take any pictures (because I was busy talking to friends about Twilight, of course), but I can promise you that it made my heart SO very happy to be celebrating Amanda and sweet (and adorable!! and blonde-eyelashed!) Garrison. Sometimes it blows my mind that we've both brought home our miracle babies within seven months of each other. It's just crazy. The best kind of crazy.
And now I'm off to watch Breaking Dawn Part 1, because a girl's gotta have priorities, you see. Have a great week!
