Harry Potter

Oh how I am sad to see Harry Potter (the series) come to an end. I ordered the newest and last book thru Amazon and it came in on Saturday late in the day. I started reading it on Sunday and got done in about 6 hours or less and this is a book over 700 pages!

I loved the book and the ending was quite surprising and the story did wrap up the story lines that's been going since Day 1. I would really recommend going back and reading at least the Order of the Phoenix before the latest book so you remember who people are. It's been over 2.5 yrs since I read the last one and it took me awhile to catch up.

I just read how there were at least 100 copies of the book that were missing pages, I would have totally freaked out to be reading along and then find missing pages! I think I would have just cried lol.

I really enjoyed the book and am getting together with some other Harry fans this week to discuss the last book and interested to find other's opinion on Harry and friends!

Loving My Computer!

Oh yes my Dell laptop finally arrived and it was a day earlier than they said it would. So that was definitely a nice surprise! This one is soo much faster than the other Inspirion I had and bonus it weighs less and has a nicer screen. We bought one of those plastic covers that go over the keyboard too. Apparently the black keys with white writing rub off way faster than the normal keyboard colors. So this will help the wear of that and it will keep things from getting in to the keyboard.

The only downfall is that when we transferred everything over it will not let me open my old filing cabinet on AOL, it kept my address book and favorites but not the emails. It really makes me mad because there are emails I have to have that's on that computer. So now I'll be copying and pasting into new emails and resending to myself. This will only take hours and hours. Anyone have ideas? I am open to new suggestions.

Finally! Dell is coming!

Yes I got shipping notification this morning that my laptop has shipped! Supposed to arrive today via DHL! WHOOHOOO! It was supposed to take 3 to 5 days but they shipped yesterday and it'll come today sometime!

I am addicted to checking the tracking, I really need to find something else to do. :) Like ummm pay the bills, balance the checkbook, make out the grocery list get dressed the list goes on and on.

Just had to share my moment of happiness for the day! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Happy 4th of July!

Today is that special day where we celebrate our freedom and always give our support to our country and fellow soldiers fighting for us!

I hope that everyone will celebrate safely and enjoy this free day and spend time with their loved ones. I love watching fireworks on the 4th but this year a severe drought has rained on our parade so to speak. They cancelled almost every fireworks show we had scheduled this year due to the lack of rain. We haven't had but maybe 1 day of good rain and it dried up quickly.

Go eat, be merry, be safe and enjoy!
