Ah, Tornado, now I empathize. Six Cullen-less days while trudging through New Moon! Jacob, wonderful as he is, is only a stand-in. When I am re-reading the books, I still walk around with a book in one hand while doing everything - except washing the dishes, showering, and consoling children. I doubt that I have spent more than two Cullen-less days.
My mom and I have been exchanging emails every day discussing a quote from each of the books, and getting through the Cullen-less parts took months. It was depressing and made getting to Italy SUCH a relief!! Now, we're starting Eclipse.
