I have about 150 pages to go in book 7. It's mesmerizing. DS keeps asking me what I'm laughing about, or exclaiming about, or generally making a rucous about, and I keep telling him to start from book 1 and catch up. He doesn't like that.

On the plus side, a conversation about the movies led him to tell me that the first movie came out around the same time as the Fellowship of the Ring, and that he had decided the Harry Potter movie was much better. He actually said he was BORED through Lord of the Rings. I know what you're thinking, this isn't a plus side. It's cool, I'm getting to it. Somehow, me telling him how at length how much more amazing book 5 was on paper made him decide that Lord of the Rings might be worth reading. Huzzah! I'll make a proper nerd of him yet.

In other news, I have been up to my ears in social outings. At any other time, this would be way more totally awesome, but right now, it's somewhat stressful. I'm starting to have little panic attacks when I see the large stack of empty, unpacked boxes. So much stuff is still not packed up, and I'm not entirely sure when I'll find time to get to it all. Plus, we have a deadline at work, and it's looking like I'm going to be working 60+ hours this week. *shudder*

So yeah, I'm scarce at the moment. But I do have like 80 pictures on my camera from all this time. Slumber parties, multiple baseball games, company picnic, wedding receptions... lots of stuff. Hopefully, I'll find time to mess with uploading them soon.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have an obsession to attend to so I can move on to the other things I need to get done.

I love succumbing to my obsessions. Glad we share some of the same ones!!!
