Remember before children, when love was new and it kept you up until the break of dawn? Tired we would roll out of bed, blindly stumble into the kitchen to make coffee and hop in the car to the place we spent 10 hours a day, then come home and do it all over again? I am there again.
You see, I have fell in love.
It was unexpected and passionate.
This is a love that keeps me up until all hours of the night. Shocking? Perhaps. Especially since I am not in love with a person. I am in love with a thing.....my daughter’s Nook. Not only have I discovered that have made the switch from paper to electronic reading material, I am loving the books I am reading: The Hunger Game trilogy. I cannot put it down. So when my husband of 13 years wonders why it is that I fall asleep at 8:30 on a typical night, too exhausted to make it upstairs, this book keeps me up until the middle of the night? He will never get the power of a good book. Our love for reading is on two different levels. It is my lifeline. This time I am drawn into a world called Panem.
In between charging the Nook to guarantee it holds a full charge for me, um...for Grace and trying to figure out how to homeschool two girls with no drama (not to mention the housework, the errands and a full load of lessons) we did find time to end our week on a high note.
