The Book I Am Reading.............

Is really good so far. My friend Oprah recommended it to me. Haha
Anyway- I stayed up REALLY late last night reading it. I read this paragraph three times:

"You build your world around someone, and then what happens when he disappears? Where do you go- into pieces, into atoms, into the arms of another man? You go shopping, you cook dinner, you work odd hours, you make love to someone else on June nights. But you're not really there, you're someplace else where there is blue sky and a road you don't recognize. If you squint your eyes, you think you see him, in the shadows, beyond the trees. You always imagine that you see him, but he's never there. It's only his spirit, that's what's there beneath the bed when you kiss your husband, there when you send your daughter off to school. It's in your coffee cup, your bathwater, your tears. Unfinished business always comes back to haunt you, and a man who swears he'll love you forever isn't finished with you until he's done."
Alice Hoffman (Here on Earth)
Makes you want to read the book huh?

No it does not make me want to read it. I can only read trash, filth (not too much filth), smut right now. If it doesn't have a dude in a kilt on the front or say something like this on the back then forget it:

After eight hundred years as a bachelor, is he ready to turn a volatile attraction into a lasting love affair?* See, smut. lol

Very intriguing.
But I'm serious- I read Book 3 of the Chronicles of Narnia and ignored EVERYTHING til I was done! Not good....!

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
