Under Stress and Under the Wire

I just now finished filing my state and federal taxes. Nothing like those last minute deadlines to get the adrenaline flowing. Any other hold-outs out there?

I'm supposed to be on vacation this week, but today has felt just like another stressful work day. It started with a dozen little things this morning, and then the car broke down this afternoon, and I have no idea why. I haven't even been up to calling AAA to come take it away to the mechanic. Seriously. Just can't deal with it today, because I also knew I had to hurry and finish my taxes. In fact, I was on my way to buy tax software when the car quit. Fortunately, was able to file online after two hours worth of stops and starts.

Anyhoodles.... what I'd really love right now is to read a completely awesome book. You know, that kind that you'll always remember, and leaves you with just an indescribable feeling after you've read it; and if it's a series, you anxiously count the days until the next one. I haven't had one of those in a while. I've had a few book "crushes" lately, but I miss that falling head-over-heels in love feeling.

I'd really like for Calgon and a good book to take me away. Any suggestions out there?

(And for those of you who know her, doesn't this cute picture remind you of Marcia Colette? lol)
