I should stop reading badly-written novels right before going to bed.

My between-hitting-the-snooze-button-every- nine-minutes-for-I-refuse-to-admit-how-long dream this morning involved me being given temporary responsibility for NoSurf and Merrily Karolys children. Apparently both couples were going out of town and I was babysitting.

And training for a marathon.

And apparently we (there was a group that was training for the marathon) were at the beginning of our training, because on this particular day, that training involved running a fairly short distance, but we only had a small "track" so we were running lots of laps. I think 24 laps. Or maybe 28. And the track was in maybe a warehouse or something, because there were rolls of carpet and boxes that we were running around and between.

And in my dream NoSurf only had 2 kids, and one was a baby, so her baby and Jr Karoly were in car seats, and apparently I felt it was sufficient supervision that I would be passing by these 2 babies 24 (or 28) times during my run.

Huh.

Do you feel dumber after reading this? That was how I felt after reading that book last night.

Awesome dream! (Can I link it up from my blog? It works so well with my theme...)(You're on my dream team...)

Wow.

So, what was the novel?

lol! I"ll have to remember never to ask you to babysit in my dreams.

What badly written novel was this? Do tell. I love badly written novels.

Oh, and I read Goose Girl for the RS book club this month... oh, it made me want to write a fantasy novel so badly. Not badly written, just want to write it... badly... nevermind. I'm definitely putting the rest of Shannon Hale's books on my list of reading. Thanks for the suggestion.

Not my baby!?!? Unless of course you babysit for free. Then... call me.
