Finally a Chance to Read Potter Electronically!
Cora and I have been fans of the Harry Potter series for quite some time. It began with Cora learning of the series and buying a book. Then she read the second chapter to me and I've been hooked ever since. We have gone so far as to buy two books when they came out and spend a weekend reading and enjoying sharing the experience.
The newest and final movie comes out in 21 days, so the count on my Facebook page says. I am certain we will have to find a baby sitter for that night.
The past few days have been busy. I have been working ten hour days and boy, those sure take up a large part of the day. And after yesterday, I'm a bit sore. We have been putting up whiteboards for a local school. That in itself would not be horrible, but the things have to go on two floors and they are HEAVY!!! That in itself would not be horrible, but there are absolutely no handholds! And you have to be careful with them, since they do break rather easily, or so the packaging says.
Oh, did I mention that the old ones were attacked to the very foundations of the building? They glued, screwed and nailed the things on...I guess they were afraid they'd be stolen. So, it has been a slow, but painful process. Still, I am in a better position than most subs. So, don't consider this complaining, just acknowledgement that physical labor gets physical! On the bright side, I get to work with one of my favorite coworkers. Even when we are tired, we keep each other chuckling. I like this job. How many people actually LIKE going to work?
Below, we see Chloe doing as her mother asked: Smile! (note: That is Blue's Clues she is watching in the background...
If we get up, our chair is fair game, and anything within reach is therefore in imminent danger of becoming toddler domain. She is NOT supposed to lean so far out from the chair, we have had long discussions, but she continues to try to prove that she can do it without getting hurt...MOST of the time...I love being able to say, "I told you so," but having to hold it back because that's immature.
