My Other Addiction
I think I just might have an addictive personality. I love my marshmallow peeps. I am sad that Christmas is over because all of the Valentine peeps are flavored - blech. I will bide my time till Easter when I can feast once again on the sugar coated marshmallow-y goodness. But, I am addicted to other things. I love to paint. I miss being in my own home. I like my walls to be different colors. I find that when I can't paint walls, I turn to painting furniture. I just bought a little chair at a yard sale to paint hopefully tomorrow. I am also addicted to reading. Dh hates it when I start a new book. Especially if that book is part of a series... because I disappear. I bury myself in the book and am lost to the world till I finish. Well, on Sunday, I decided to reread the Harry Potter series this spring so that when the new book comes out, it will all be fresh in my mind. I started the first one Sunday evening and finished it Tuesday morning. Started the second one as soon as I finished the first one and I finished it early this morning. I started the third one today and I finished it just a few hours ago. Once I get started, I just can't stop. It's an addiction that I just can't help. I HAVE to read it! And I have read all these books before! The first 3 books I have read several times. But I just didn't want to put them down. I don't neglect my kids or anything, but when they are otherwise entertained, I will read. I'm starting the 4th one tonight. It is a lot bigger than the others. But, I will be surprised if I'm not done by Friday or Saturday. Actually, I should be able to read the whole series in about 2 weeks or less. Only because I can't put it down. Now, if I had a box of peeps in one hand and a book in the other... well, I'm afraid they'd have to put me in rehab!
