I’m a Nut Job

30 Jun

Even if I’m just walking a few feet from the kitchen to the table, I carry it with me.

I try to plan my day so I will be able to have time to enjoy it. (Nate’s nap time, Nia’s rest time)

When I’m not absorbed in it, I’m thinking about it. (While I’m cooking/doing the dishes…)

I talk about it to other people even if they don’t want to really talk about it. (People at the YMCA/my loyal husband)

This is not the first time I’ve been like this and I know it will not be the last.

Harry Potter consumes my mind.

I just reread the 5th book “Order of the Phoenix” in anticipation of the movie (in theaters July 11th!) and now I am rereading the 6th book “Half Blood Prince” in anticipation of the 7th (which will be in my mailbox on July 21st).
I was even trying to plan out how I should prepare for all of this upcoming Potter excitement.  I sought help from Andrew (who has absolutely no interest in the books/movies and is only taking me to this movie because I agreed he could have unlimited time playing PlayStation.)  I asked him if I should wait until after we watch the movie to reread the 6th book because then that way I will have a clear stream of events. He said he thought that would be a good idea (trying his hardest to care) and while I thought so too I couldn’t help but begin the 6th.

I’m also re-watching movies 1-4 and I’ve advised Andrew he needs to watch them so he’ll have an idea of what’s going on with the movie.  Just to give you an idea of how that’s going – we started watching the first movie last night – he only lasted 45 minutes before falling asleep.  I, naturally, am in total disbelief that he doesn’t love this story as much as I love it. I think he’s just jealous of all the time I’ve been spending with Harry.

    Right there with you! In fact, baby is sleeping, so as soon as I catch up on a couple of blogs, I'm spending some time with Harry.
