I’m at an impasse
OK, so I’m pretty sure I have a problem with addiction. When I get hooked to something, I get HOOKED. In the past it has been The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz, Facebook, painting, exercising, shopping at Michaels… Now it’s Janet Evanovich and her saucy, saucy writing skills. I read the first one and instantly fell in love. It’s the kind of writing I enjoy. I feel as if it’s something I could totally write myself. I can’t read old school books like my sister. She loves Jane Eyre, anything by Jane Austin, and vampire books. Me? I love something that could be real but embellished. I also enjoy reading autobiographies, too, as long as it’s not about some old dead guy or president. However, I did enjoy reading Capone.
So my dilemma. I finished “To the Nines” last night and am currently staring down “Ten Big Ones,” but if I start to read it, here’s what will happen:
1.) I will neglect the children
2.) I won’t be productive in the least bit
3.) I will stay up until some ungodly hour reading it if I choose not to neglect the children and only read during nap times.
4.) I will hate myself in the morning because not only do I work, but I wouldn’t be able to read it until after I was done getting paid to do something.
5.) I don’t have 11-15 in my possession and then I’m without my addictive reading material.
I’m at an impasse.
|1.||a position or situation from which there is no escape; deadlock.|
|2.||a road or way that has no outlet; cul-de-sac.|
I have no escape. And I live in a cul-de-sac!
Maybe it would be better if I just finish it so that I can get on with my life. Once I’m done with 10, then I move into the withdrawal phase of addiction and I’ll be up all night shaking and rocking back and forth -dreaming about what crazy situation Stephanie Plum is going to get herself into. Will she blow up another car? Will Ranger give up some of his secrets? Will Morelli still be hot?
It’s a good thing I don’t watch Soap Operas.
