I've been immersed in my book all weekend. On the couch, in the backyard, on the stairmaster, by the pool... This morning at the pool I got within 100 pages of the end and I started to get really sad and began reading a lot slower. It feels kind of like watching the season finale of Buffy or the ending of Return of the King. I'm dying to see how it all ends but then it, you know, ends.

Back I go.

We saw the new Harry Potter movie last night. Which was awesome, of course, even though it was wildly condensed from the book to the film. And for a movie called Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix there was surprisingly not a whole lot of said Order of the Phoenix. But I guess that happens when you adapt a book thats over a thousand pages long.

I'm so excited for the new book!

Speaking of books, I just finished The Time Travelers Wife and reading it literally put me in a daze. It was sort of like seeing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind for the first time. I was very sad to be done with it and now I'm flailing around looking for my next good read. Methinks Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows should fit the bill.

In the Trenches

So..... summer has me distracted. Between working out at the gym, afternoons at the pool, sleepovers, movie theatre trips, park trips, random house projects and breaking up all the fights that pepper all the above activities I feel that I have to officially say:

Summer vacation is kicking my butt.

I don't have much time to check in here but I'm still at least trying to keep up with posting photos on my Flickr account. I think if i actually tried to say that I was giving up the blog thingy then I would inevitably find about a hundred things to talk about the day I took the site down.

And now, I leave you with some running sausages:


My neighborhood is awesome!
