Harry Potter....

Bruce and I went last Saturday night to watch the new Harry Potter movie. I was super excited to see it. We even went to the 10 o'clock movie and that is late for us old folks. Anyway I will try to voice my opinions without giving too much of the movie away, but if you haven't seen it yet and you want to you might want to skip this post. All 3 of you that read my blog that is.

Alright, I love Harry Potter some of my most favorite books ever! JK is a much better author than the Twilight lady and I can say that because I have read both series in their entirety. So, when the movies come out I can't wait and for the most part the movies have been just like I pictured things when I was reading the book or in some instances better than I pictured.

With that being said, it wasn't that this movie was not good, but it was, what is the word I am looking for here, somewhat lackluster. It was just kind a big blah! I mean I know this movie is just like the book set up for the next, but there is still a plot and a story to be told. Anyway we all know that Dumbledore dies, so please tell why the screenwriter thought it was not pertinent to have the funeral scene it the movie. It was said that he though after the glow wand thing that they did that the funeral scence would be redundent. Where was the big white tomb, where was the big wizard send off. UGH how can you leave that part out?!?!? Plus, they make Snape look too much like the good guy in this one. I don't know I can't exactly put my finger on what about this movie I just didn't' love, but there was definitely something that I just didn't love.

I am still looking forward to the next and maybe it will put this one mroe into perspective, but so far Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince not my favorite!!!!

Blog Slacker

These are just a few of the reasons why:

Three kids home on summer break.

Unexpected trip to church camp. ( We didn't realize Alex was old enough to go but she was so she went and so did I.)

Anniversary trip for Bruce and I , totally was not long enough.

Finished up t-ball.

Had end of year t-ball party.

Took a short family vacation to Hot Springs, again totally was not long enough.

Disappointed husband because he did not get the new job he interviewed for.

Pissed off wife because the guy they hired is like 90, who wants a 90 year old elementary principal, plus we are still waiting on a call from the superintendent telling Bruce he did not get the job, still waiting, still waiting, still waiting....

Week of Vacation Bible School at church, in which I was co-director and it was really several weeks of planning.

Also music director that required dancing and weeks of learning the moves and the songs, because I am not a dancer.

Week before VBS fell and sprained my ankle, see last two posts! Not a good time for that to happen.

Bruce has also been out of town VBS week, not helpful!

Oh, and the last thing, we got a new puppy, his name is Dexter, very cute, but also lots of work.

Will try to resume regular blogging soon!!
