Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows

Back in February, Roy's brother, Adam, gave him a wonderful birthday gift - a preorder for the final Harry Potter book to be delivered July 21st. Amazingly, the book was delivered on that exact day, even though it was the first day of its release, and millions were being delivered that same day. Well, since Roy is so busy with French in summer school, I got to read the book first!!!! I read most of Saturday afternoon, most of Sunday, and most of today, and I finished it tonight. I must say, that I was not disappointed, and I was even surprised at a few things, but I dare not give details just in case any of my friends (yes, you, Melissa) hasn't read it yet. It is a real shame that so many in the church world condemn them before ever even reading them. I suppose if one can't read HP w/o succumbing to magic, than one can't watch fairy tale movies like Cinderella, or shows like Bewitched. Amazing lessons can be learned through the HP series, and I even question what kind of a person I really am, and would I be willing to give my life for others (NOT that Harry does or doesn't give his life!!!!!)
Well, okay, enough of my soapbox ramblings.... The book was amazing, and I can't wait to talk to someone else who has finished the book ... and also to share it with my own children one day.
Tomorrow I will going to school to work a bit. I can't believe school's almost ready to start! I go back on the 8th for a week of inservice. The 30th of this month, I will be going to Ponca City to help out with my mom's surgery. Hopefully I can convince her to rest (love you mom!). Wed. our final estimate for fixing the roof and patio should come in. Our insurance is definitely going to have to give us more money to cover the replacement cost. This stuff is no fun! But, when it's all said and done, we'll have a new roof, which will look great if we have to sell the house after Roy graduates.
Okay, enough of my babbling for tonight....

I'm reading it RIGHT NOW!!! I'm only in the 6th chapter, and it is SO good!! I have so many questions to ask, but I don't really want them answered, so I'm signing off now to get back to it... :)
