Truly crazy

Like a truly crazy person I stayed up until 4 am finishing the new Harry Potter book. I really intended to read it in reasonable chunks over the next week, but I just couldn't help myself when I got to the meat of the story! I won't spoil it for any other Harry Potter readers out there that haven't read it yet, but it is a great ending!

We are still in house mode...yesterday we went and ordered some furniture and got the "floor model as-is" dresser for our bedroom at 1/2 price. It is a little scratched on the top, but I figure a good polish and some kinck-knacks will cover that up!

I am also trying to get the house in reasonable shape before we leave tomorrow for Chicago. Between that, washing cloths, packing for the trip and packing to move I figure I'll be ready to turn in early tomight!

Mean old parents that we are, we wouldn't take Annie to go get the book at midnight. But we took her later on Saturday and told her she could stay up all night Saturday night reading it if she wanted. She just couldn't do it...she was zonked by 12:30! (Of course, she finished the next day.)

Hope you all have a marvelous trip to the Windy City! Can't wait to see some pics of all the highlights!

And by the way...I simply cannot even picture Aaron pouting. Every time I try to imagine it I just start laughing!

Harry Potter ... ACK, I never got into that. Glad you enjoyed it, though!

I can't believe you stayed up so late reading the Potter book! Somehow I've never gotten into them but I think some of my kids have.
