First off, I have been off
Except when I have books I NEED to read. I made the mistake of purchasing the last two books of The Hunger Games. I started Catching Fire late Friday evening. I did manage to control myself and went lights out at about 1 AM. I finished it the next evening and had to start Mockingjay - at least the first chapter or so I told myself. One chapter turned to two and so on and so forth until about four in the morning. By five in the morning we had "thunder ice" and Maren was crawling in bed with me. The thunder ice was kind of surreal. Lightning, thunder, rain, hail, ice pellets and a little dusting of snow. So strange for February. I felt like I was in the arena at the Hunger Games. But maybe I was just a little sleep deprived. Excellent books though.
We didn't make it to church Sunday because of the ice, or so I told myself. Actually I wanted to sleep since I had had so little of it the night before. I left my laptop on the little side table
So, I learned a few things this weekend. Water really does taste pretty good. Lack of sleep makes for poor choices the next day. Books really can wait until tomorrow. Shattered laptop screens are not nearly as important as your girls shattered heart because she broke her momma's favorite toy. She felt so bad. Organizing and storing your photos probably shouldn't wait until tomorrow. I'm working on it in my brand spanking new office.
