I am OBSESSED with the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. I read the first book last week and it took me a few days. I was waiting on the second book Living Dead in Dallas (I use Paperback Swap for most of my books) to get here and it came yesterday! Well I started it last night and as of about 8PM tonight I am over half way through it! It helped that my hubby is on spring break this week and it was a beautiful 70 degree day here so I sat outside most of the afternoon reading while my kids played outside and my husband did yard work. They are just so much fun! I also read the Twilight series which I love as well but these are better in some ways because it's adults instead of teenagers and there is real sex ;), bad fashion and rednecks! I have books 3 through 7 on the way (again through Paperback Swap). I am just hoping book 3 gets here in the next few days!!
While I was sitting outside in the sun today reading I managed to get sunburned. Not badly sunburned but still I'm a bit sore and pink. The sad/stupid thing is I know better!! I am light eyed and very fair skinned! In fact I burn within 15 mins. of being direct sunlight. Oh and I burn then I peel then I am back to being just as white as before. So I get ABSOLUTELY no benefit out of being in the sun longer than 15 mins. Oh and did I mention skin cancer runs in the family. Yep I'm a smart one! It just felt so nice being outside today and being that it was pretty much the first day it's warm enough in months to be outside with out a coat I just forgot. Oh and there was the small issue of being so engrossed in my Living Dead in Dallas book that I didn't want to stop reading.
I let my 6 year old have an email account and a Facebook account. The email account isn't so bad I know. I did it because my family was sending him little email notes to my account which was fine but he loved getting them so much I figured it would be fun for him. Plus I thought it might help to get him excited about writing by writing back (it didn't fyi). Now don't think I am a horrible parent for the Facebook thing. He is not allowed on it except when I am with him and it's only so he can play Yoville. In fact he only has 5 friends only family or family friends and no there is no picture of him up so it's not he uses like a real Facebook account.
