no worries...y'all can go back to what you were doing! i found a copy of eclipse!!! not at borders, not at costco, not at wal-mart, but the last copy at good ol' target. yeah for target! i heart target! woot woot!
i was finally caught up on some other obligations and went on a quest...i did not rest until i found numero trois in the bella/edward drama. can i just say that i am in love! very soon i will re-read the entire trilogy!
we went camping over the labor day long weekend and it was divine. my whole family was there...all my children, their spouses, and even the little grandbebe! she was such a trooper. she loved the fire...couldn't stop staring at it as if she had never seen anything so fascinating in all her short little life...oh wait, she probably hasn't!
we read, played texas hold 'em, jumped on the trampoline, made s'mores, played horseshoes, shot guns, sunbathed, and just had the very best of times! we stayed mostly dry. a wicked storm blew through camp sunday night right after we had all gone to bed. scared the bajeebers out of me! we had to run out in the rain in our jammies to pick up tents and canopies and tie them down, and put out the fire so the sparks didn't burn down what is left of the forest. back in my tent, all i could think was "i hope all my kids are safe and stay dry...and i wonder...is this how edward and bella felt? "
then i turned right around and "left town" for three more days to work at creative escape in phoenix. wow! such a lot of work to pull off something like that, but also so much fun. i was glad to be a part of it. sarah was a volunteer, so i got to spend a little time with her...a very little time. but we were bunk buddies, so at least i got to spoon with her every night! i love going away, but i always love coming back home more!
