Power!

One of the reasons I wasn't blogging regularly lately is that my book club was reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Those of you who've read it know that you can't just stop with the first book; you must immediately go on to read the other two books, at the expense of everything else in your life. At one point, I pretty much forgot I had a child.



But I just finished up the final book last night, so I can have my life back. It turns out that I actually do have a child, a husband, a cat, and a fish. They're all still alive, but I'm not sure how.

Now I'm feeling a sense of power over anyone else who hasn't finished the third book yet. I could probably get them to do anything I say simply by threatening to reveal the ending. "Come over and clean out my closets, or I'll tell you how Mockingjay ends! HAHAHAHA!" I'm so evil. I could be president of Panem.

Hi Karen, Thanks for your message on my blog the other day. Someone just recommended the Hunger Games series to me and I can't wait to get started! I'm always looking for other young myeloma moms to talk to so send me an email (you can find an email address on my profile) if you ever want to chat. All the best, Jody

I read the first two books months ago, but still haven't gotten into the third one. I do have it. It's sitting on my night stand staring at me. Yelling at me. I seem to keep finding other things to read and to do. Don't tell the ending! I am reading Water for Elephants right now.
