13 Things I'm Looking Forward to This Summer

  1. Not having to drive to and from work - This alone should save us on gas, especially at these gas prices. Ouch!


  2. Watching my garden grow and perhaps even eating things that I have grown.


  3. Giving the kids to Grandma and spending time alone or with my husband, sans-kids.


  4. Seeing more progress done on the house - The siding might get finished and the bedroom and kitchen decks finished and screened in. Won't it be nice to eat or sleep outside without bugs?


  5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie. Looks really good. We are all huge fans, so this should be fun!


  6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - We're going to go buy the book at a midnight book party, costumes and all!


  7. Shrek the Third - We're going to watch the first two movies before going to see the Third.


  8. Pirates of the Caribbean III - Swashbuckling fun.


  9. The Transformers movie. - Looks interesting. I was never a fan, but my son likes them.


  10. The Simpsons Movie - Eat my shorts! Bart should be out of college by now.


  11. Going to the Drive-In Theater. - An experience I haven't had since I was a kid. I can't wait to give my children the experience of something that may not be around much longer.


  12. Trying out my canoe. - It's been ages, but I used to love it. Now that someone has given me a canoe, I can take it to the lake or a nearby creek. But not our creek, it's too small.


  13. My husband's Doctoral Hooding - After a decade and a half, he's finally finished, except for his dissertation. The hope is that this fall he'll get his fancy doctoral robes. His degree is in musical composition. I'm going to make him wear the robes around the house. He really should teach with them on--Hogwarts style!

I just started reading the Harry Potter books, and I love them. I am actually reading "Goblet of Fire" right now, and have to read the next one before the movie comes out! I am in my thirties and will admit I love them as much as those kids! Haha!

Despite what the critics said, I loved Shrek 3!
