Have you ever read a book and got so involved in it you cannot put it down. Its all you can think about. You have to finish it. When you are done you realize your kind of sad its over.
I do that. I get so involved in my books. I picture the characters and places. I feel the emotions. I put myself in the story.
I like it like that. Its my escape.
Now don't laugh....
I just finished reading the Fifty Shades trilogy. Great books ;)
I have neglected my house work, homework, and my family (a little) so I can escape into these books.
The whole time I was reading the books my brain was lost in the story. Even when I had to put them down and do normal day to day things, my brain was in the story. I finished the last book yesterday. They were great and I hope, hope, hope she continues with his side of the story.
Now I am finally done. So many things need to be done. What do I do? Mope around all day. Oh, I tried to do homework. I tried to focus on the things that I should be doing. After an hour or two on homework I felt like I just couldn't focus anymore. So I decided to go ahead and take my shower.
Something about a shower when I feel sad....I lost it.
I am a little embarrassed to admit that I was that sad from a book. Stupid right? I guess I am not ready to leave my escape yet.
Don't get me wrong, I love my life. I just got to spend my last few days in the mind of a woman with a perfect body and incredible adventures going on. Then its done. I am back to my body, no money, and an overwhelming amount of homework to do. I still get a lump in my throat. (So stupid)
My husband is so great. He didn't laugh or tease me. He just held me and reassured me that it was ok. That I wasn't stupid and it was ok to be sad, no matter what it was over.
This last month has been so overwhelming. I hope I can get it together and step up my game.
I guess I better start now. I think I will start with a cup of coffee.
