I'm finally all here  
I, of course, got Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I got my copy at 12:45 a.m. The line was really long and then I found out I was in the wrong line. :D yeah, the reserved line went much more quickly. B&N didn't mark the checkouts, so how was I and many others to know. It was fun. It was an actual party. I took my nieces, Jackie and Mary. They managed to keep themselves busy for the entire time (9 p.m. to 1 a.m.), and Jackie dressed for the occasion, as did many others. I loved this little red headed girl I saw, maybe two or three years old who had a t-shirt that said "I want to be a Weasley". So cute. The store had little games, photos and beverages that were all Harry Potter themed (of course). They made the cafe the Great Hall and served butterbeer, the elixir of life and polyjuice potion. I tried the elixir of life, which was italian soda and pop rocks. Now that was a weird sensation at the back of the throat. My niece's won a few prizes. I do have some pictures of the event, which I will post later.

We got home at about 1:30. The girls spent the night at my place. Much easier than running around at that time of night dropping them off at their homes. I put them to bed and then began reading the book. I finished at about 7:50 a.m. I was tired the rest of the day. I went to sleep, but was up by 10:30 a.m. I felt sick from being up all night and the heat that we are now experiencing.

Did I like the book. I think it is her best one. I'm in the minority that loved Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, so I could just be weird. I was understandably upset by many of the deaths that happened in the book. A few still bug me, even after I let them sink in. I plan to reread the book later, but I already borrowed it out to my sister. I can't wait until she finishes so we can both mourn over some parts. Neville rocks and Molly Weasley surprised me. If I write more fan fiction, it may be AU.

Anyway, I had to go decorate a float at 11 am Saturday (that's why I had to wake up at 10:30). Then I got sick and was sent home at around 1:30. Took a shower and went back to bed for nearly 4 hours. Then I had to help my youngest sister move. It was all heavy stuff. Try moving a heavy and long couch down a flight of stairs into a basement apartment. Tight turns and skinny hallways, and it was just me and my mom. You know, my mom that was paralyzed for nearly 3 months. Yeah, we got stuck moving that damn thing. Ugh. I hurt my left shoulder really bad and my mom hurt her back. Took another shower when we were done. I felt like I had 100 layers of grime and sweat on my self.

I felt better today, but we are now in a stretch of hot weather. What fun, since the county fair begins this week. Of course, if it's not very rainy during the fair it's extremely hot. About the fair, I'm not really planning to go very much. I plan to go to a free concert Friday afternoon. It will be bluegrass performance by the very respected character actor Ned Beatty. I'm really looking forward to that one. Mr. Beatty spends his summers in nearby Karlstad, MN, and has performed his music on several occasions in the area. I'll definitely take pictures of the concert and post them.

Good night.
