Too Much

So for the past few days my life has been consumed with planning and reading and partying and just generally trying not to screw anything up.  By the way, I'm majorly failing at that last little thing.

My Stella & Dot Launch party was Saturday.  The planning was ridiculous, but I must say that it seemed like a huge success!  My girlfriends showed up, we ate and drank and played with jewelry, and enjoyed being together.  HUGE thanks to my Mama for cooking all of the food!  And another HUGE thanks to Daddy for keeping LJ entertained!

Let it be known that it is impossible for me to plan two things at one time.  My son's Baptism is this Sunday... am I prepared?  Nope.  Not even close.  Major fail.  I don't think I even want to talk about it anymore.

So let's talk about Twilight, or I guess New Moon.  I borrowed it from a friend on Friday, started reading on Sunday and finished it on Monday.  My conclusion?  Bella is a very flat character.  And very annoying.  She didn't bother me so much in Twilight, but I found her to be completely moronic in New Moon.  Whiny.  Needy.  Overly impulsive.  And yes, I get it that she is supposed to be a teenage girl and they have a flair for the overdramatic- I know that all too well.

That said, I am totally Team Edward.  I don't even understand why there is a Team Jacob.  Maybe I was too busy being irritated with Bella to judge fairly.  Maybe the next book will change my mind.  Maybe I will go buy that book today.  If I do, then y'all won't hear from me for like... oh I don't know... 24 straight hours while I put aside all other obligations?

Am I being too hard on Bella?  I'm feeling quite overwhelmed lately and don't have much patience for anything.  If it were possible for me to go hide under the covers for a week and shut out the entire world, I would totally do it.  There isn't anything wrong, necessarily.  I just want to crawl out of my skin.  I want to be still.  I don't want to think about anything.  I have no motivation.

Maybe I'm just depressed because Jax isn't a vampire.


  1. Your not being to hard on bella, she is very annoying in New Moon. It's my least favorite book in the series. It gets better though, especailly the forth book is amazing. I promise!

    Yay for your little man's baptisim! I can't wait to hear all about it :)

  2. Congratulations on your successful party. What kind of planning do you have to do for a baptism??
    Bella is kind of annoying. She is so brave when face to face with vampires, yet she cannot be by herself. She toys with Jacob, too. You can’t love two people-I’m sorry.
    Oh dear. Please don’t get me started on Team Jacob. I feel pretty sure I can convert anyone from Team Edward to Jacob. And it doesn’t have anything to do with the kid with the hot bod who plays Jacob in the movies!!
