Midnight Secret

After TEN years in the making...

And many many months of fans (like me) of the amazing books waiting with baited breath as each movie was made and released...

The final chapter in the Harry Potter saga has been turned into film and opens today.

Of course,
since it's such a hit,
there was also a midnight showing last night all over the country.

And since that's the best time to sit for my kids (ha!),
And since our summer college age sitter's plans fell through to see it herself (sorry!),
I had someone to stay at the house while I trekked out to the movie in the middle of the night!
(And the kids had NO CLUE.) :)

The theater didn't plan well on their timing of letting people in.
There was one HUGE line for the large theater showing the 3D movie,
and another line for 3-4 small theaters showing the 2D film.
The smaller line was let in first and then our large line.
We didn't start MOVING until almost 11:10 and our section,
with many more in line behind us still,
didn't make it IN the theater until almost midnight.
Which means the show actually began closer to 12:30.

it was WORTH IT!
GREAT movie!
I don't know that the 3D was worth it,
only a few scenes where it really even registered,
but still,

(My kids stopped watching the movies after the second and I've told them
as soon as they read the books they can see the rest!
I have yet to have one take me up on that!) :)

Tell me, are you a fan?
Are you planning on seeing the movie?
Or did you already?

I'm a big fan. I have read all the books and can't wait to see this last movie.

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
