Addiction.

I just want to apologize for slacking on posts the last week. Because of a wonderful friend, I have become hopelessly addicted to the twilight series books. I am about 200 pages from finishing the 4th book after starting the first book just last Thursday. Needless to say, between the time spent changing diapers, making dinner and reading, there hasn't been much time for anything else. Wes was criticizing me (in a joking way of course) last night about the amount of money I had dumped into this in the last week. I have to admit, its a bit ridiculous. After 4 books, the soundtrack and a movie ticket, it has added up. But I had to graciously remind him the price difference in our hobbies and mine are definitely still more reasonable :) Anyway, if you don't have the time to devote to finishing the series, don't start! Wes asked me about why I couldn't get away from them and the only thing I could compare it to was stopping a great movie during the best parts. Speaking of movies, Twilight was eh. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it, but unless you already had the passion for the story, the acting was lacking and it was incredibly cheesy in parts. I found myself laughing out loud during some of the more intense parts in the movie. But I didn't feel guilty about it b/c the movie was exactly as the book described (although missing some very important parts, in my opinion). Time to get some sleep, wanted to post as a distraction to get away from the book and go to bed :)

Ha! I am another person responsible for getting people addicted to those books. My poor friends never had a chance once they met Edward. And Jacob. And Alice. :)
