Just call me a Potterhead.

I've been having a hard time getting motivated to blog lately. You might have noticed. I don't know why that it is exactly. The males in my house have been getting better about giving me daily a turn on the computer. Mostly I've used it to stay in touch with my mother while she's been in Germany visiting my cousin. She's coming home tonight -- yay!

While she's been gone, I've been knitting up a Hip House Scarf for myself from Charmed Knits: Projects for Fans of Harry Potter. I rarely knit for myself, but I'm planning to get this done before UberDad and I go see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix." Hopefully my mom will watch the boys so we can go on Thursday afternoon. I'm so excited!! I finished the sixth book, HP and the Half-Blood Prince, a couple weeks ago, and rented both the third and fourth movies last week. I'm both sad that there's only one book left, and anxious for it to arrive from Amazon next Saturday! Puffer used his allowance to buy the Harry Potter Wizard's Chess set a couple weeks ago, so he and UberDad have been playing regularly.

Yes, we love Harry.

(Fyi, I have posted at my kids' private unschooling blog recently, even though I've been mostly MIA here. If you want an invitation, just let me know.)

Harry Potter is great. We actually saw the new movie on the first day it came out! (something we NEVER do!!) Mike took off work early, and we saw the movie, and got dinner on the way home.

This Friday, Russo's is having a book release party, from 10pm to midnight, with games and fun stuff!!

I didn't know you had another blog. I would love an invitation!

Back again ... thanks for your visit and heads up about FNKC! I didn't know it was going to be a movie and Julia Roberts is going to be in it too! I hope they movie does the book justice! I will have to see it!

We have not seen the movie - I'm not into the movies really - BUT I will be a at a party on Friday. I just finished my dd's Gryffindor scarf today and am starting to sew a school robe for her. I can't wait to get my hands on that book! LOL!
And might I be able to look at your other blog? Thanks!
