Of course, Clive's droopy sad eyes convinced Cory to let him sleep in the floor with us, so between waking up in puddles of sweat and Clive licking my feet, I didn't get much sleep.
The other thing that is currently engulfing my free time and thoughts is the series by Stephanie Meyer.
Lacey read them and was completely enthralled by them. Since she recommended them, and she's infinitely cooler than me, I had to check them out. Cory and I both read the first one, Twilight, on the beach. (My cousin and soon-to-be cousin-in-law have also read them and loved them.) I've started in on the second one, and I can't put it down. They're teenage vampire romance novels. If you're looking for literary gold, this may not be the book for you, but if you want to get wrapped up in a love story, it's hard to beat. It's actually kind of inspired me to do some more writing, which I haven't actually done yet, but I am vowing to do so over the next few weeks.
I'll post some vacation photos as soon as I have the tenacity to sort through the pictures again, and I'll tell more about the trip. It's a thrilling, action-packed, rite of passage vacation story that you won't want to miss. (It doesn't involve vampires, but all except one of us are frighteningly pasty and especially vulnerable to the sun.)
