Jeff was gone for a few days last week. So I had a quiet cozy bedtime. Sometimes that's nice. I was craving some decadent dessert, but I opted for a few berries and one square of Godiva chocolate instead. I'm just starting The Girl Who Stopped Swimming. It's fantastic so far. You know when you stop reading in the middle of a page because the phone rings, or you just can't keep your eyes open or one of kids needs attention *now*... and then you try to go back and pick up where you left off and you have to read back several paragraphs or even pages in order to remember all the details? (Hello, run-on sentence.) With this book, I remember exactly where I stopped. The images and the chacacters and the action are so intense that it makes a instant connection.
If I didn't have a big birthday meal to make, I'd spend the rest of the afternoon reading.
