One more chapter... or not.

... or two-thirty in the morning, to be more precise.  And usually I'm mad when I do this, but I'll sport the dark circles and my pitiful, still-wet top knot with joy today because Ender's Game was totally worth it.  I plopped in the bath tub at 9:00 p.m. and didn't get out until 2:45 a.m. (because after I emptied cold water and re-filled the bathtub with hot water approximately ten times before I finished the book, I actually had to take a bath) because I couldn't. put. it. down.  I'm now sort of dead-set on making the movie happen this weekend.

I think I need to take a break from books for a minute.  I clearly can't be trusted with them.


Can we also talk about how I'm going to be made an aunt the third time over sometime tomorrow?  My beautiful, fabulous, red-headed sister-in-law is being induced in the morning, and I seriously canNOT wait to meet my new niece.  I remember with so much fondness the wonder and excitement and LOVE I felt when Stella was born, and I know it'll be the very same with Blakely.

Plus, Faith has had crazy heartburn throughout her pregnancy, which totally equals a head full of hair (at least in my experience), and I will unashamedly say that I've got my fingers crossed that it's RED! :)  (But I promise I'll still love you to the moon and back, Blakely, even if it's not!)

So if you've got a spare moment, please lift these girls (and my poor brother - he is about to be officially SO outnumbered!) up in prayer!  I'll love you forever.  Pinkie promise.

Ender's Game was so good! The second book is a little different and kind of weird. But, also good in a different way :)

I need to lay off the books, too--I just can't get anything done! I just finished the Diviners (obvi), quickly breezed through Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, and now I'm starting on the Alchemist. Prayers for your SIL!

I can totally relate to the book quote!! I love a good book that I can't put down! Prayers your way!
