Five Days and Counting
That's when the new Harry Potter book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows arrives. I'm still planning on going to the midnight Potter Party at the local Borders Bookstore. I've recently read that people sit outside the bookstore and shout out spoilers to the Potter fans as they exit the bookstore. I think this is just mean. I know Justin was listening to a morning radio show a day or two after the last Potter release, and they played a little jingle about the character who died. It basically said the victim's name over and over again, "So and so dies, so and so dies...." So, I'm hoping to block out radio and TV (and meanspirited shouters) while I'm reading and hopefully the ending will be unspoiled for me. Hopefully it will be easy to go without media, as we'll be at an island paradise. That's right. I haven't forgotten that we're also taking our anniversary trip this weekend. Although, I have to admit the buildup to the last Potter book has been a little more exciting. It doesn't help that when I ask Justin questions about the trip, the usual answer is "I don't know." Do you want to go snorkeling? I don't know. Should we take snacks? I don't know, etc. Despite this lack of excitement on my hubby's part, I'm really looking forward to getting away. The one thing I'm not looking forward to is leaving without little Duncan. I know he'll have a blast with Grandma and Grandpa (they just installed a new playset and sand/water table--a little kid's paradise!) On the other hand, we may actually be able to sleep in for several days. Sleeping, relaxation, reading, beach...ok, it does sound pretty darn good.
