1. No real plans for the weekend outside of our normal routine. 2. Have read the entire Harry Potter series numerous times. Genius. Have seen all the movies as well. No interest in the amusement park stuff. 3. One in the bed, two on the couch.

That is gorgeous! I don't quilt, although I would love to learn someday.

Weekend Plans? The girl's best friend and she are going to a theater teen gathering so my wife and I will go out to celebrate the death of DOMA over dinner Friday night while the girl is off with her friends, then my wife is working all weekend, the girl has grad parties to go to and I hope to spend some time with the new books I've just purchased!  

2. Harry Potter....read the books, seen the movie, gone on the ride? never read the books, just didnt appeal, watched some of a few of the movies when they've been on tV. we enjoyed Harry Potter world at Universal last year - (mmm butterbeer!) but only the girl was brave enough to go on the ride and she said it was intense!

3. How many pillows do you sleep with? used to be two until we got some really good pillows now its just one

While many of my faith would disagree, I am so glad to see the end of DOMA. I believe in true equality for all, which is what Jesus was really about.

Mrs Norris, Curious, do you keep your darlings away from all forms of kiddie it (such as classic fairy tales ) that feature wizards and witches, or is it just Harry Potter that you object to?

I don't mind the classics, Bord. But I've never quite forgotten Pastor's warning about Harry Potter when it came out. From the devil, he said. Since our co op is through our church, it's pretty easy to keep a lid on the kids' media usage. My kids don't know about Harry Potter. And I prefer older children's lit: the Bobbsey Twins, The Boxcar Kids, Nancy Drew--the true classics. The girls like American Girl dolls, but I limit them to the historical characters, not the dolls of the year or the just like me dolls. I think the historical lessons were acceptable with the historical dolls.

It matters to you why she posts about how many pillows her husband sleeps with..  Why?  It's not like she is pulling in information about another person's husband - irrelevent to any topic on hand - and posting it here.

Cool spring, My DH typically sleeps with one pillow. We have a total of four standard ones on the bed.

Blissfully unplanned weekend ahead.

Read the books, seen all the movies, anxiously awaiting a trip to Universal Studios when Potter World is expanded in a few years!
