escape

so this week has been very strange with nate gone all week at scout camp, i feel like a giddy teenager excited for her boyfriend to come home tomorrow! i dont know if i have ever missed him this much. not sure what thats about ... emotion of saylors current challenges or just a better marriage. i have been thoroughly enjoying the kids and trying to spend individual time with them. i love holding saylor at night and cuddling. storie and i have had flower lessons and some good conversations, stock some reading time and some hugs. its been nice to not be working as hard as i normally do this time of year. i have 6 more events before i take time off but for the most part they are all designed and the office work is done so i am just focused on the actual events where usually i am designing and doing so much office work while working on events. its left me with much needed free time and for sure left me refreshed. so i have been escaping my beautiful life a bit and reading a lot. i read in waves usually and sometimes the waves last a long time and other times they are short rides. i just finished this book .....


my mom gave it to me for mothers day so thats how long i have had it. i started it that very day and for the next 6 weeks or so tortured myself with reading about a page a day, very dissatisfied and pretty certain i would not finish it. i thought perhaps my surfing session had ended, but for some reason i kept plugging along and finally at around page 150 it picked up a spark for me and i couldnt put it down after that. i really enjoyed it from there on out that is until the end. to sum it all up the end just ruined it for me .... dont want to give anything away but it was to predictable and just didnt finish right for me. it was ok in the end. not loving it but glad i read it. i am not usually i sci fi fan at all, i can see some of the men in my family loving stephenie meyers after this one.

so the i moved onto this one ...

i havent been to the library in ages and ages, i prefer the book store i suppose when really i should prefer the library. perhaps its the convenience and luxery of moms working there and bringing me home anything i might want that they have. so the kiddies went to the andersens for some fun and games and i decided to do a few needed errands and do at least 2 things i would not normally do on my freet ime. so the library and a trip to savers was what the night held for me. i got this book cause it was on the "staff picks" shelf and it drew my eye, when i read the back i felt anxiousness well up inside me and pondered whether it would be a good read for me or an emotionally bad read for me at this current time in my life. ultimately i decided it must be what i need. so i am about half way done ... i will let you know.

It's funny that you had a hard time getting into that book because I am doing the same thing. I pick it up to read it and than think that there must be something better to do than read it, so I still haven't finished it!

Everyone I've talked to has had a hard time getting into The Host, but they all love it when they're done. Interesting. Thanks for you sweet comment on my photo blog, I appreciate your kind words and support!

I read it too and feel the same way. It took me a bit to get into it then I was disappointed in the end. Call soon, need to chat!
