Alrighty… so here we are…back at the beginning after the end…
With any chance, moment, breath, second…I worked at completing what I already knew…. Midnight Sun was drifting in the back of my mind…delighted…I was pushing the two books together – I liked knowing where everyone stood (if that makes sense)…sometimes it would be great to cut through all the filtering we do and be a mind-reader…or would it?

Could this be the end or a beginning?  Why has this distraction taken me?  Hmmm….answers will come in time.
So here I stand, exhale, sheepishly handing the cashier the first Twilight Book.  Looking up and catching her stare – she excitedly said – “Oh, have you read these before..you will love this series, have you seen the movie?”  “Um – inhale– yeah, actually….I’ve read everything (feeling a flush of red) but the first one….(caught off guard by her interest and then couldn’t believe myself spilling my story to this stranger).  Quickly summing up…”A friend tempted me to read New Moon, then we saw the movie, leading me into Eclipse and then I had to read Breaking Dawn… Cashier – “Didn’t you love Breaking Dawn!”
“I did! It really was great, have you read Midnight Sun on-line? Well you should (why couldn’t I stop myself, how ridiculous, but I went on) it’s about Edwards perspective and blah blah blah…”  Cutting the conversation off quickly…book in hand…now running out of the store.

Finally, back to the beginninghome…opening Twilight

This day now leaving… turned into my Midnight Sun

Anticipation bubbling up. 
Determined…crafty or clever however you want to term it…thank goodness for my palmpre…which allowed me to pull up the draft on my phone…although it made for a somewhat difficult and tiny read…I powered through.  Mmm….so intrigued with the classic – boy hates the irritating girl, really the irritations are what he is falling for, then all-consuming, obsession, want and love washed through binding them both. 

I like this draft and wish for a completed version, one day.  Yes, natrually…I have developed my obsession, now twisting with that bite-your-lip embarrassement…this could not end now…so of course, it was time….the first book Twilight.

Into the Midnight Sun…driffiting…musing…huh…264 pages- nodding my head – I could tackle this easily.  Arranging a blueprint of time…hmm…contemplating, should I print this out…then someone might question 264 pages..silly me…just download it and read it through out the day. (clearly I’ve lost my mind)

(my lips pursed)…Oh! the blasted phone calls, interuptions…didn’t these people know I had more important things going on here…(motivational voice of reason in my head)…alright Sara you are at work…act like it! 🙂 

The deviant inside won…heehee



ok now the good part…

Breaking Dawn, Breaking Me….

Please read the following with an over the top dramatic passionate tone…makes me think of Jon Lovits on SNL bellowing out – ACTING!
Alright, (long pause, sigh, eyes closed, face tilted slightly to the left, suddenly look up) finally here… little miss Bella has accepted she is engaged…the compromise…the innocence…clings to the edge of a looming wedding…all too perfect for this disaster prone Bella and Edward….Oh Edward where art thou Edward!!!!!  

Okay, right, that’s um out of my system now… 
At this point, Breaking Dawn has become my favorite so far…maybe it’s knowing there could be a happy ending…everyone getting what they want, although not without struggle…taken some-what by surprise at the direction…however looking back clues were there spelling it out.  Then, the mushy romantic, tender love held between Bella and Edward – most girls fantasy – to be wanted and desired by the one they love, always- (maybe not by a vampire) you get the picture.   🙂  

I flew through this book and enjoyed every bit of my stolen moments….



could it have taken long enough

Tethered to this Eclipse, it followed me…

Cutting the stem, trying to separate myself from this growing weed that rooted in my head…only lasted so long…I found myself thinking – who is really going to get this book for me, I mean I should just go get it, no one would really care – No Sara, wait, patience, (why not try being an example for your kids?).  However, I was quickly adapting their “I WANT IT NOW” mentality – could this really be that important to me??? 

 Christmas morning….there it was… wrapped up in Adam’s best wrapping …ok let’s not be too excited about this…(cringe) but I was!  The tearing of paper began all around, gasps of excitement came in all directions from Avery and Spencer…happy dogs-Coby and Oso sniffing and rooting around in the wrapping paper….looking for things to run off with and chew no doubt… Really it was such a fun day, as we all know it’s about the kids, family being together….Wait, this is about me and my silly experience with the Twilight Saga!

Dust settled, toys opened, play began, others sunk into the couch slowly reading the back of their eyelids…hmm…could it be…nobody needs anything…this is the window of time I was looking for…ever so cautiously, gathered my Eclipse and I slipped away…only Coby and Oso seemed aware of the plan, (perfect reading buddies) they followed me  to my room…. 

Consumed by the Eclipse.



Really? What I am doing….

Twist of my lips, skin crinkled between my brow, flush of red on my cheeks…huh…why do I feel like a school girl…all silly and giggly.  Oh right, movie day.  Gathering my things saying good-bye…catching the roll of Adams eyes…Have fun, he said! 

New Moon here we come .  Met up with S (the one who started this mayhem) and some other great girls to all share in this silliness.  So many people out early to see this, who are these people…interesting…(eyebrows lifted) I am one of them too…ugh.  I now get to compare the movie I made up in my head to a professionals work….of course there was the occasional that didn’t happen that way and filling the actors thoughts from my memory of the book.    Cute, fun, romantic, action, sad, warming….ending on a question…killer or more like, hook line and sinker!  

Taking the bate…forced to continue this saga….I felt the urge to run out and get the book, Eclipse, knowing I would need to become crafty at creating reading time.  Driving home pondering all my thoughts…Really, Sara,  what are you doing???? 

I chose to wait….telling Adam I wanted the book for Christmas…and slipped back into my daily in’s and out’s.

The pull of the Eclipse was tugging at me….
