Happy Easter, Reading World!

And I don't mean to just greet y'all and your respective families a Happy Easter. Although I sincerely hope you have a good one this year and always.

I also mean I'm having a happier-than-usual Easter this year--I succeeded at sacrificing something for the Lenten season. So now Lent is over and I'm back to reading my historicals. I actually managed to hold out until 1AM this morning. I mean, I held out for forty days so I guessed one more hour couldn't hurt.

I'm extremely proud of myself. I ACTUALLY DID IT! I knew I wavered a number of times but I managed to remind myself that I wouldn't, couldn't die if I waited just another day. Yep, had to do it on a day to day basis. Movie marathons and office work kept me sane or I wouldn't have survived this long. As it turned out, I came out only a little crazy--albeit not totally unscathed.

But it feels really good. Not only because I can finally go back to reading what I feel like reading. There's an immense satisfaction at knowing I succeeded at something I knew I was going to fail at but did it anyway.

So, yeah, today is a happy, happy, day. Happy Easter to y'all--and to me, too.
