Sick Kids and Harry Potter


I have been waiting for the next Harry Potter movie to come out for a very long time. My brother, sisters, and I have made a tradition to see the movies at the midnight showings in Burley. My dad had to be at the farm by 5 am so he wasn't going to come with us and he would just watch the girls while I went. Well, my Mom bought the tickets for Tuesday night at midnight and we were set. I would leave for Burley around nine as soon as I got done teaching the scrapbook enrichment group at church. Well, the plan was going along great until three people showed up to start their page at 8:30. They happen to be the ones that talk the whole time and their page takes forever to finish.(I still love them though!) They finished in an hour which was good, I wasn't too behind schedule. I arrived home to find Kamrin fast asleep on the couch. Even better I thought, she was already asleep. I would just have to move her when I got to my parents house. I went to find Josh to tell him that we were leaving and he told me that Kamrin fell asleep at 5:00 after I left for dance practice. Well I was pretty sure that if she fell asleep at 5 that she would not sleep through the night and my dad could not get up with her and still be to work so early in the morning. I called my mom and told her to she if one of the girls could find a friend to go in my place. Well, I decided to move Kamrin to her bed and put on some PJ's. Halfway to her room she threw up all over me, the floor, and the wall. Well, now I understood why she was so tired. She was sick. Harry Potter would have to wait! I am sooo glad that those ladies showed up late. If they had been on time I might have made it into the car halfway to Burley before she got sick and that could have been much worse. I have tickets to the 8 o'clock show here in Twin tonight. I had mutual last night and we went rafting in Hagerman, so I couldn't even make it to the late, late show last night. I have not read the newspaper, watched anything on television, or the Internet that would let me know if it's good or bad. I am sooo excited to go tonight.

The sacrifices moms make. I hope Karmin is feeling better. I don't know how you can stay awake through the late night showings. Tell me more about this Scrapbooking enrichment. Is it digital?

We've done the Scrapbook "focus group" for about a year. The people that were doing it hadn't scrapbooked before so we started slow. They've come a long way and I am trying to find a way to do at least a digital workshop, but there are 40-50 people who come each month and I'm not sure how to make that work. Any ideas would be great...
