All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible....

It's happening....

This one is for Mary and all the other Twilight loving gals urging me to start the first book in the series that I have had for DAYS. Mind you I have carried this book around since I got it in the mail. I took it to work, I took it to get my oil changed but I just couldn't start reading it. I read all the reviews about how hard it was to put it down. Specifically, All Things G&D's review. Go read it if you haven't it's fabulously funny and if your like me, it's scary :) I'm a Mom of two who doesn't have the option of getting so engrossed in something and was scared that if I did, NOTHING would get done.

I started it last night. The kids went to bed and I did some housework. I wanted to wait for DH to get home from his hockey game and I knew he would be late because it was playoffs. I couldn't sleep so I picked it up and began reading. Before I knew it I had to pee and I looked at the clock and it was 12:05! I had been reading for 3 hours straight. I don't think I even shifted positions during that 3 hours. It was almost as if I was in the book. I forced myself to go to sleep when DH got home at 12:30. I had very vivid dreams of Edward and Bella. I woke up at 3:00 and read some more. I read a little before I took Jax to school and I read more when I got home. At this point I hadn't done any of my daily chores which I usually get done in the first hour of my day. The dogs got fed 3 hours later than normal because aside from Jordan's needs nothing has been done. I finally took the book to the basement and left it on a shelf down there. I am taking a break and wont begin reading again until the boys are asleep tonight.

Needless to say I am addicted. I just ordered the second one and I find myself paying for expedited shipping so it can be here by the time I'm done with this one!

Help. Me.

You've been bitten!! The obsession is ridiculous and uncontrollable and to be totally honest the only cure is to get through all 4 books :).
