Assignment #4

"I am not weak," said Harry in a low voice, fury now pumping through him so that he thought he might attack Snape in a moment. "Then prove it! Master yourself!" spat Snape.

Well that homework assignment is done and now off I go to vacation where sorry you won't here from me for about a week because there is no computer and no email. I will try and have my daughter check on my online things though. But she is so busy with work and her life in general. So talk to you next week.

Quidditch Mix-up

Well I have to say congrats to those Hufflepuffs aren't they just clever! To win quidditch twice is pretty special. I for one don't need another round they won and the rest of us should have been paying closer attention. So again congratulations Selena! I for one have been busy shopping and putting final little things together for my Eleanor and I hope she likes everyone of them. I have one more little thing that I want to complete and then the owl will be sent off. With that note I have work to do!! Hope everyone is enjoying their time at Hogwart's and learning lots.

Well I got tell you it seems like I have done a lot of different things I started off right out of high school in the Navy but didn't get very far expect to Alaska for three months in the dead of winter. Then I cooked in different kinds of restrants for a long time. Then I did some care giving because I throughly enjoy older people and the wisdoms that they pass along. Which lead me to going to school for a while for nursing but that has not worked out to date every time that I go back some thing seems to get in the way. Now I just don't think it is going to happen. Lately I have just been a mom and a part-time domestic goddess for others.
