Bobby and I became friends when were were in the play Faith County this past spring (those of you who saw the play know him as "Gladys"). He is an amazing person - and always so positive and uplifting! I'm so glad he offered to do a guest post - and I know you will be too!
The creators of The Price is Right probably never intended their program to produce anxiety. The sounds of someone spinning the Big Wheel or winning A BRAND NEW CAR always makes my stomach tighten and my breath shorten just a bit. I've developed that weird association in the hospital waiting room. Over the last few years, I've spent more time than I care to think about waiting there to see how my mom's latest surgery would turn out. Coincidentally, the waiting has spanned many Showcase Showdowns.
Note from Emmy: I met "Relevant Notes" through 20sb - and have LOVED her blog! I think you'll love her too, and I really enjoyed this post. Since moving to Missouri, I've had to get used to some "lonely moments" and have even learned to enjoy them. ---- I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.
Day 31: What Affect has Harry Potter had on Your Life, and how Much Does it Mean to You?
I can't believe at this time tomorrow I'm going to be preparing to see the final midnight premiere of a Harry Potter movie. I'm really excited to see how they do it - but I'm also dreading it. It's all going to be over. On Saturday I'm leaving on a youth trip with 16 teenagers - and they said that while we're there they want to see Harry Potter with me.
I think it's because they all just want to see me cry and geek out the entire movie. :P
I didn't want to read Harry Potter at first. I remember hearing about it and how awesome it was - but I thought Harry Potter was the dumbest idea ever.
I am back from camp! We had such an awesome week - I can't even explain to you. I'm so proud of the teenagers who were our camp counselors this year. They had a lot of responsibility on their shoulders with helping to start a new camp and being in charge of a bunch of 4-6th graders! They did an amazing job and I'm so glad they were all able to come!
Day 20: Out of all of the Characters That Died, If You Could Bring One Back, Who Would it Be?
There are so many characters that I wish didn't die. The end of pretty much every book starting with Goblet of Fire is heartbreaking. It's as if JK Rowling put on a blind fold, then started randomly pointing at characters and when she was done that was who was going to die. So it's a hard choice.
