So I've just completed Eclipse for the second time. I'm kind of going out of order here. I was really in the mood for twilight and Patty (I really only read books that Patty buys...she is so nice to let me borrow them all- and she always buys books that I reccommend) had lent twilight to the neighbor. Harmoni was reading New Moon, so I started reading Eclipse. She now has twilight back, so I will read that next:) hehe. Well ANYWAY- what a ride. I loved it just as much if not more the second time. All I know is that these books are the most heart wrenching things ever! Seriously, how could you not suffer with pain for Jacob by the end? AH! I am really wracking my brain of how this series will end! I can completely see how Bella could end up with Edward, and become a vampire- BUT! I can COMPLETELY see as well, Bella ending with Jacob. Ah! This story is lovely. Really, I love it. I am going to quote a part of the book that Darin once quoted to me,

"He's like a drug for you, Bella." His voice was still gentle, not at all critical. "I see that you can't live without him now. It's too late. But I would have been healthier for you. Not a drug; I would have been the air, the sun." pg 599 (that was Jacob)

"The worst part is that I saw the whole thing- our whole life. And I want it bad, Jake, I want it all. I want to stay right here and never move. I want to love you and make you happy. And I can't, and it's killing me. It's like Sam and Emily, Jake-I never had a choice. I always knew nothing would change. Maybe that's why I was fighting against you so hard." pg 600 (bella)

They love each other so much it is SO PAINFUL! I am aching for them both. AND edward! I ache for him as well. I don't know what to do about them. Thank GOODNESS august is just around the corner! And guess what?! We are going to be in Oregon when the book comes out. Ugh. I don't know what to do- I'm not going to Oregon to just sit and read all day, ignoring all life around me (that is what I would do when I got the book). I thought of ordering it on cd, to listen to on the way home, or getting the book sent to my mom's house to read it on the way home...I may get car sick though. I don't know! UGH!!!!! Oh well. All will be okay. I'm just so excited!

Today was a pretty good day. I haven't gotten much done. I read a lot but I give the excuse of my suffering shoulders. I have come to realize that I must have a weak back and neck. The slightest things can strain them and I am in rotten pain for hours. I merely took off my backpack in my class and BAM- horrific pain in my right shoulder to the point of difficulty breathing. I decided I should lay down for a while- so I laid down and read the remainder of Eclipse. I think it helped too. I feel much better.

It was sunny and lovely. My boss bought us all ice cream-good ice cream too- not just like a vanilla fake cone. It was great. He buys us lunch and treats often. He's not around a lot though- he travels mostly. But when he IS around, he treats us a lot. I think that his motive works too- because everytime I feel like he is being so nice that I should work extra hard.

Well- that's all for now. I need to do some reading- accounting. Not nearly as exciting as Eclipse. Actually, not exciting at all! Love you all!

So is this one in Aug. the finish for the series? I am glad that you enjoy them so much. I look forward to seeing you, it will be fun. Love grandma

Lizzie said...

You make the books sound so good to read again. Maybe I should. I can't stand Jacob. Maybe if I read the books again, I would like him more. I do think Edward is like a drug to her, but I love Edward so much. Who knows.

Your boss sounds nice. I'm glad you have a kind boss.

I just finished reading New Moon so I am out of order also. I was just going to take a quick look at the book and ended up reading the whole thing. I love the books and am really looking forward to the conclusion. I have the new book ordered and I would certainly let you borrow it if you were going to be in town. I am really sorry to hear about your back. Take care and have a great week. Give Clayton a big hug for me. Love you. bye now.


Danyelli, I miss you. that is so funny how hooked you are on these books- I'm going to write about tehm in my post- so read it. I think we all have crappy backs in our family- it was just a matter of time for you. I"m so sorry. I'm going to write you an email right now- love you-

Ok, your back- that's not good. You should ice it if it hurts. Maybe you injured it. And when my back aches,that mean I need to work it out. Whenever I do back exercises and push ups- my back problems go away. Instantly. So try that, but not if you think you're injured.
Twilight. I didn't know it was coming out then. We'll all want to be reading it!

Well, we could do a Harry Potter and have them mailed to the house, read all day until we're done. Think about it. It was kind of crazy when I did that, and makes me want to read it again and savor it more, but reality if I'm hooked on a book I read and read! I am so excited for you guys to come. I love the quotes you gave, I can't believe Lizzie hates Jacob. He is soooo much better for her than Edward. Don't get me wrong I love Edward, but I don't believe she is truly in love with him. I think he is truly in love with her. It will be interesting to see what she does. Thats cool about your boss, you're so blessed to have a good boss. The best thing you could do for your back is do my dvd. Even though in some ways I hate it, it works every muscle in your body, and it is strong muscles I have decided that make your back strong. I think lots of our aches and pains are because we don't have the muscles we need to support our body. I don't KNOW that I just think that. I do know that strong abs make a big difference in your back. Well, love you!!!!!
