Mom is coming!

I have been feeling stressed lately and the best cure for that is some serious mom time. Lucky for me my mom and dad were willing to oblige my need on this occasion and mom is coming from California for the weekend.

I am so happy happy happy about it! You don't even know.... :-)

I am also missing my friends Heather and Becky as well as my old friend Suzy. Heather and Becky are both heading out of town this week so there is no chance of getting them to hang with me and mom...maybe next time. Suzy has recently moved to Wyoming with her family so that is out as well.

My niece Lacy, who is living with me at the moment is also excited Grandma is coming but she can't top my daughter Bailey who won't stop talking about it. Lucky for me Lacy has a job and my daughter is in daycare so I will have some one on one time with mom which is what I am really needing at the moment. I have no problem sharing her, shoot I am the youngest of 7 kids so I am used to it, but it is nice to be able to have her to myself once in a while. Call me selfish but it is true.

That is all I have on my mind for now. Just wanted to share!


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

So I got my book LATE on Saturday and had it all read on Sunday. I would have finished sooner but my 3 year old likes attention too so I had to take more breaks than I would have normally. No matter...it is done and it was AWESOME!!!

That being said I would like to take a moment and remember our fallen friends James & Lily Potter, Albus Dumbledore, Sirius Black, Mad-Eye Moody, Hedwig, Dora Tonks, Remus Lupin, Ted Tonks, Fred Weasley, Severus Snape (we hardly knew you) and many more.

I also want to give up some serious props to Neville Longbottom for finally coming into his own!

This story has been a long and winding road and sadly we have come to the place we get off. 10 years is a long time to share in the storied lives of so many and I felt, IMHO, that the ending was fitting and JKR has outdone herself.

OK enough...I am moving on and will find something fun to talk about soon. I promise.

Toe in the water...

So I have decided to join in the blogger world and am taking this one small step at a time. I don't profess to be a genius at this or even moderately talented in this arena so I am hoping this is a journey you will take with me using a lot of patience and some humor!

Ready then? Let's go!
