You won’t hear from me for awhile…

23 Jul

It's just so bittersweet...

I didn’t think it would get here until Monday or Tuesday because I didn’t pay for shipping but didn’t let me down!  The last “Harry Potter” book arrived on Saturday and I just got my hands on it today because I was in Savannah when it arrived.  (Although Ginger awesomely let me hold hers.  So Ginger – have you started yours yet?)

I almost don’t want to start mine because then it will all be over. I know I will reread each book before each movie that comes out but it’s just not the same. I might sound really silly to some of you – I wish I could explain to you why I love this story so much – it’s just so incredible and wonderful and I just really appreciate the imagination behind it all. Andrew doesn’t get it – he just doesn’t like it and we’ve actually had arguments over it because I’m saddened (and dumbfounded) that he doesn’t give it the respect I feel it deserves. I do have to give him credit though – he did buy me the cupcakes you see in the pictures. I thought that was very nice of him (since he basically loses his wife while Harry’s around). We all enjoyed the treats.

I thought of it as a way of saying “Sorry family, I’m going to be a little distracted over these next few days. Please accept these cupcakes as a token of mommy’s guilt for neglecting you.”

That said – Harry, here I come.

Here's to Harry!

    I'm trying to read Harry as fast as I can because I consume WAAAY too much media and I'm worried that the ending will be spoiled for me if I don't hurry up and finish the book. I'm on page 311 right now.

    I'm worried about the spoilers out there too, but I can't help but read it slowly. Since it's the last book, I feel the need to savor it. Page by beautiful page.
