Sam bought me a copy of "Breaking Dawn" yesterday. So, do I absorb myself in this book now or can I possibly wait the five days until the Olympics are over?

Oh, a cute conversation with Noah:
N: Mom, I just don't know what to do!
K: About what, bud?
N: Well, I really want to do swimming in the Olympics but I don't think I can do that and gymnastics and diving and track & field, too! So, I can't decide which one not to do because I like them all!
K: Hmm, well that is a tough decision. You better just try them all and decide which one you like the most. Plus, I'm not sure they'll let you do more than one in the Olympics.
N: Oh, OK. I'll try them all.

(Last night he decided he would be pretty good at volleyball so he has now added that to his Olympic goal list! I hope he's not disappointed when he isn't able to compete in ALL of those things at the Olympics!)

Hey Kathleen! This is Amanda Neeley from Laurels and I just found your blog! Hope you don't mind me reading it!
I wanted to let you know that I feel the same way about the Olympics! And I cry, too! I wish I could get myself up to watch in the morning, but I just stay up way too late! I love it!
And I just got and finished Breaking Dawn. Yes, I did watch it while the Olympics were on! I'd pay attention if it was something I really wanted to watch, but otherwise would just look up to see who won. And then I'd read and read late unto the night (thus not being able to get up in the morning!) Perhaps, then, I would suggest waiting!
Sorry this is so long, just wanted to let you know that I love reading your blog and your family is so cute!

Well, I vote that you watch the olympics every night until midnight, and then start reading after than until 2 or 3 so you can feel REALLY terrible the next day...sound good?
