and I'm not afraid to admit it!
I know, I know ... I've been majorly MIA these past few months (eerily quiet for someone as loud as me!) but I have a good/lame excuse. Recently, been reading. Lots. Remarkably for the past six days straight! No cooking, no cleaning, no decoration take down and certainly no worthwhile human interactions. I've simply disappeared into some lovely light fiction and haven't regretted ONE moment of it!
My husband and kids have been extremely kind and indulgent to have let me "check out" like that and I'm eternally grateful to them. I guess, in a way, I really needed to get outside of my own life and be able to experience someone else's for a change (in spite of the criticisms I've heard from online sources). I was completely immersed and obsessed and only reluctantly took breaks when my wimpy body needed sustenance and sleep.
And yep, I read more than one: I read ALL four, in a row, non-stop, until I was done. And again ... no regrets.
But tomorrow, it's back to work, back to the grind, back into the drudgery of a time-laden routine. *sigh*
Maybe Spring Break has another series of all-absorbing books in store for me ... one can only hope and see!
