Samantha came running in and handed my mom a large heavy bag stating inside was a present for me and grandma.
Grandma and I looked inside and joyful praise immediately emanated from our bodies.
The bag was full of books. All kinds of books.
Forty books to be exact.
Being the sweet daughter that I am I let my mom pick what books she would like first. She took home 10.
Lets do the math together, shall we? 40 books - 10 books = 30 books.
I cannot truly express to you the great joy that bag of books is bringing to my life.
Simple sweet joy.
The children, however, are not quite as excited.
They wanted assurances that we were actually going to be doing things this summer. Not just reading books.
Of course, I assured them.
We will go to the beach (where I can read a book), they can play in the pool (where I will be reading a book), how about riding bikes and running around out front?
I have already purchased a new special chair to sit in while supervising all of these activities. Of course it has a nice cup holder for my water bottle (lets be real, most likely a diet coke) and nice arm rests so my extremities will not get to tired while they are holding all my new BOOKS.
Please don't pinch me. I really don't want to wake up.
