Am I crazy for loving these books?

Ok. All I want to do this week is read this book!! Is that so hard? Apparently so. I borrowed it from a friend on Sunday and began reading it right away. I was so engrossed by Monday morning that I totally spaced Scarlett's 9 month well visit with her doctor. It has gotten so good, but I have been way too busy this week. It's like everything in the universe is keeping me from reading (ok, a little too dramatic). My patient load at work has been horrendous and the paperwork at night is overwhelming. My baby has an ear infection I think (hmmm... shouldn't have spaced on that dr. appt. Monday) and is in my arms constantly. My laundry is piling up. My checkbook isn't balanced and the bills aren't paid. I don't care. I just want to read. If I try to read with awake kids, I only get 5 minutes without interruption. THIS IS NOT THE KIND OF BOOK YOU CAN JUST PUT DOWN! UGH! I've been up past midnight for the last 3 nights. Only 300 ish pages left. No more typing.... must read...!!!

Did you read The Twilight? I read the first book, and it was good. Stephanie Meyers cousin is in my ward, and so everyone in our ward loves all the books. I haven't read any other ones, but she seems like an amazing writer. I don't think you are crazy. Good for you!!!

hahahha I don't think that's bad at all! I did the same thing. Nothing wrong with being a bad mom for a few days!

HA! You are too funny. I think all us moms have had experiences like this. The everyday demands don't really get to you except when you want some time just for yourself. Have fun finishing!
