Obsession....Whatever!

Ok, so I am going to admit it...At first I was afraid that the movie would completely destroy the eloquently written love story and that the characters they had chosen were all wrong but can I just say now that I am so excited for the movie to be released and to read the the final book, which by the way I have already per ordered. I hesitated for months before finishing eclipse because I couldn't bare waiting to read the next one. At first I was wary about the whole vampire thing but everyone told me I would love it and they were right I did, I mean DO. My friend Liz found this great website called Twilight Moms...www.twilightmoms.com and I literally got lost reading and looking at the pictures for 2 hours! They had this to say on the front page;
SO...YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE whose life was turned upside down once you read Twilight...

Your house is a disaster with piles of laundry in every corner and stacks of dirty dishes at record breaking heights. You imagine your husband is a vampire (or werewolf) and have the libido of a newlywed again! You keep convincing yourself that "cold cereal makes a perfectly wholesome dinner" and the pizza delivery boy is now on your Christmas card list. Your children are free to run amuck as long as no one comes to you bleeding...too badly.
Oh, there's guilt alright...but that's not enough! You can't tear yourself away from the books and damned be the consequences!


There are more of us out there than I thought. Fans of the Twilight Series in OUR STAGE of life (whether you're a mom or not) need a place where we can gather unashamed of our irrational obsession with vampires and werewolves. We need a place where "our kind" can relate without having to wade through all the teenage internet code mumbo jumbo like "OMG!!! IMHO Edward is sooo Hawt!!!" (usually a dead givaway that you should be doing your social studies homework for 3rd period instead of playing on the computer.) FYI, it was a group of 14/15 year olds that "changed" me. However, OUR world of balancing family, work, home, marriage AND...our Twilight obsession is unique, fun, and oh, so very humorous. The personal stories and experiences I've heard/read from women on both sides of the planet are a blast. YOU LADIES ROCK!!!
...and "Twilight Moms" is dedicated to YOU!!!

I cheered...you mean to tell me that I wasn't the only adult mommy that was taken in by this hypnotic "teen" love story! Are you kidding me? There is a whole community dedicated to the Twilight saga...and I didn't hesitate to join them. I am so thankful that I no longer have to hide my obsession and I have other mom's that can relate to the madness. I am also looking forward to reading her new book "The Host" and may just start my own book club so we can all be obsessive together...watch for your invitation it comes out May 6th.....mark your calenders that is only 18 days away......and Breaking Dawn comes out in 106 days! In case you were wondering I have a countdown on my blog...I know scary.
