Friday Get Away

I waited all week long for today.

All week.

A week where I was both spit on AND called a nazi by two different crossing guards.

For reals.

But all week long, I had my eye on the prize.


That guy that I like so much and I got out of the house right after the boys left for school and headed out to breakfast.

An incredible breakfast featuring granola pancakes in front of a roaring fire.


We then walked across the street where I tried not to look at this because I am just not ready yet.

I've got my eye on Thanksgiving....THEN we can start thinking about this:
Full. Caffeinated. Harry Potter.

The movie didn't disappoint. Yes, it was different from the book but I liked it...liked it enough to want to see it again so I can process it some more.

Then we found out my car needed $1500 worth of work which rained a bit on my parade because I am struggling (still) to understand God's plan for our financial well being.


But then we bought 3 caramel apples and the lady gave us a 4th free and then I sat at a neighbors house and she prayed with me and then our family came from the next town over and we had a big 'ole family dinner and then we watched Private Practice with a fire in the fireplace and then I slowly started realizing ( of these times it will stick) that I cannot control it all and I just need to let Jesus take the wheel.

I'm working on it.

I'm not there yet, but I'm working on it.

  1. Mike and I both loved Deathly Hallows. I thought the slower pacing worked well and it didn't depart too far from the book. It was some of the little stuff I I kept waiting for Harry to grab Mad-Eye Moody's eyeball from Umbridge's door and he didn't do it. At the end, it was sooooo sad when Dobby died, even knowing what was going to happen. I am going to see it again with Liz when she comes home this week. I think we'll go see it in the IMAX this time.

    P.S. You could always listen to's chapter-by-chapter anaylsis of the book vs. movie to help you process it. That's what Kate would do if she were here. I am pretty sure she is in Mugglenet withdrawal and will spend days downloading all their podcasts when she returns home next summer.
