"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

vampires, caffeine, and romance thwarted

Have you ever had one of those days when you just don’t feel like doing something…but you know you have to?  Like, for example, writing a blog?

I’m writing it, don’t worry, but I really wanted to just slip under the covers and try to sleep off the caffeine hangover I am riding at this moment.  I still haven’t fallen off the Diet Coke wagon, but I did have my share of root beer today.  I was indulging for my pre-anniversary celebration.  And because I’m also giving up artificial sweeteners, it was loaded with real sugar.  So I’m riding a sugar and caffeine high, and I can feel the crash coming. 

It was worth it. 

Mike and I went to dinner and a movie, and had a nice time.  It was the first real “date” night we have had in months.  It’s tough when the realities of life get in the way.  Mike has a high pressure job, and I have…well…I have lots of laundry and other very important things to do.  I’m supposed to be finishing a couple of books, but that will have to wait until after the holidays. 

It might have to wait until I get over my new obsession with the Vampire Diaries.  I don’t expect this obsession to have any real legs.  It is just a mild case of “gotta watch it” syndrome.  I expect it to run its course fairly quickly.  Unlike my magazine obsession that has been going strong for more than a decade.  Of course, that one might be on borrowed time too, now that my puppy has taken the job of magazine destruction.

I guess it’s HGTV for me for a while.  Surely he will grow out of this chewing phase soon.

Tonight’s festivities aside, tomorrow is our official anniversary (thank you to those of you who have sent me private messages to congratulate me) and if Mike can take a break from working on his projects tomorrow afternoon, we may find a little time to spend together before the Christmas party in the evening.  With that in mind, I am going to try to grab a few hours of sleep. 

Good night all!

Until the next time…I’ll be sneaking a peek at the Vampire Diaries videos online.
