I have totally fallen prey to the Twilight books. I borrowed Twilight from a friend on Monday, exchanged it for New Moon yesterday, and now I am almost crazy enough to exchange New Moon for Eclipse this very minute. I feel like that would be crossing the line of our friendship, though. I mean, sheesh. Who knew I would immediately become obsessed? I certainly avoided it as long as I could. I didn't want to be another one of those silly girls swooning over Edward and here I am loving every second of his relationship with Bella. Wow. I could almost gag myself I sound so goofy. Whatever. It's too much fun to deny it. :)

Bye-bye Gender

Wow. How ironic is it that I crashed my car on my way home from the office right after I posted that? Crazy. I rear-ended a van. My air bags deployed and everything. As my first official accident, I think I pulled it off quite well. The car is probably totalled, I walked away with just a few bruises and a broken necklace, and I happened to just get full coverage on the car at the beginning of the month. I'm one lucky duck! I certainly didn't feel that way when I was stopped in the middle of the bridge between Gladstone and Oregon City waiting for the police to come, but I know it will all work out. The lady in front of me was pretty nice, so that helped too. Oh, and in case you are confused... my car is named Gender-Confused or Gender for short. He's a boy because the gas tank is on the right side, but he looks like a girl because he has sweet pink and purple embellishments on him. So he's a little confused, but I have loved him regardless.

Here I am. I just turned the big 2-2 and I'm pretty much as happy as could be. I just finished reading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini and it gave me a lot of perspective. I am so blessed. I live in a free country, I love my husband, he loves me and respects me, my family is loving and supportive of each other, and I have the gospel of Jesus Christ. Things don't get much better. Although they can certainly get more interesting, I have no reason to hurry through life. I've been enjoying reading books recently and having time to go running twice a week. I am loving volleyball once a week with family and friends. I'm just plain happy.
