Day 1 ~ somethings missing

Do you ever wish magical creatures existed just so you would have "something" to blame when unusual things happen that make you feel like your loosing your mind?

I spent an hour looking for my keys this morning.... It doesn't make a bit of since, I ALWAYS put my keys in the dish, on the end table by the front door. Always. Yet when I went to leave the house for work (which I was already running late because for whatever reason my alarm didn't go off), my keys were NOT there.

I finally found my keys under the couch in my living room. How in the world could that have happened.
The only, somewhat reasonable, explanation I can think of is that my cat picked up my keys out of the dish with her mouth, dropped them on the floor and batted them under the couch.
Even that sounds ridiculous, she is a very lazy cat. Although who knows what she does while I am asleep.

My alarm not going off doesn't make since either. I know it was on when I went to sleep, but not when I woke up 20 minutes late. I was totally dragging this morning despite going to bed early. NOTHING makes since. Maybe my cat also stepped on the buttons on my alarm clock and turned it off...

If fairies existed, I could simply blame it all on them instead of having to think up outlandish explanations, (involving my cat) in order to convince myself I'm not loosing my mind...

Reading w/ my daughter
"A Series of Unfortunate Events"

I read this series of 13 books, a few years ago and thought it would be an intriguing series to read with my daughter who is 8, I read, she listens.
If you are not familiar with the series, the title "A Series of Unfortunate Events" fits it perfectly, three children are put through a lot of crazy horrible circumstances but it is written in a humorous way. Situations that in all reality would be sad and depressing don't come off that way in the books. The author constantly writes, "this book is unpleasant, don't read it, put it down, read something happy", haha!

We recently finished the first book in the series:
A Series of Unfortunate Events #1: The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
My daughter enjoyed the book and was always eager to find out what would happen next!

It is about 3 children, Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire who become orphans when their parents die in a fire. They are put in the care of the villain of the series Count Olaf. The Baudelaire's parents were wealthy and Olaf is out to get the inheritance left to the children.

We just started the next book in the series: The Reptile Room

There was a movie made in 2004 titled Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Jim Carrey was the villain Count Olaf! The movie covered events from the first 3 books. I told my daughter we had to read those books before I would let her watch the movie.

Quotes from Dhampir's & Vampire's #17

Instead he kissed me.
Time stopped as he reached out and cupped my face between his hands. He brought his mouth down and brushed it against my lips. It was barely a kiss at first but soon increased, becoming heady and deep. When he finally pulled away, it was to kiss my forehead. He left his lips there for several seconds as his arms held me close.
