Hey, sorry to be MIA.  I had a few things going on, first the holiday weekend and then being totally sucked into the Twilight books.  You see, back in May when we were stuck in an airport for a delay I bought the book, figured let me see what all the hoopla was about.  I maybe read 40 pages, you know I got busy.  Well, about a week ago I decided to pick it up again and I never put it down along with the other three books.  I plowed through these books like nobody's business.  I do that, I read like crazy and then stop.  each book took me between 24-48 hours to read.  The books are something like 400+, the last one being 752 pages or something like that.  I pushed myself to stay up until 1:30 am just to have to get up the next day for camp.

I loved them!  They were wonderful.  I truly enjoyed them, they captivated me and kept me interested.  Hell, I was on the boat and I was reading!

So, that is why I have been MIA which leads me to my next thought, I love to read.  As I was reading my book one night, at about 10:30 pm Sam my son was next to me reading as well.  He looked over at me and said, "mom, isn't it great how we are reading together?"  I looked at him as proud as ever of my boy and said, "Yeah, it really is."  What a mom
ent.  In fact a few moments later he asked if we could stop and go to sleep.  We did but I do have to say that there was a great lesson here.  One, I was sharing some nice time with my child and Two, I was showing my child that I read which was instilling something so powerful in him.  Reading is not always a favorite past time of all people and for some it is dreaded but it is important and I am so happy thta my child loves to read for pleasure as well - he finished his 217 page book in one day!
So, along with planning the party for Ken I will be looking for my next book and catching up on my blog.  See you soon.


  1. I love to read, too. I've heard great things about the Twilight series; I need to read them!


  2. That is so nice Ziz ~ truly a special moment with your boy! I have not read the series, but my cousin has been raving about them ~ I may just have to give them a try.

  3. It is a lovely thing to read together, you are picturing you and Sam together :)
