I went and picked up Donna at 12:30 at her house to take her to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2.  She loved it.  When Bellatrix was killed by Molly Weasley she gave me a thumbs up!  She loved how Lucius Malfoy went chasing after his wife, Narcissca and his son, Draco.  It was great.  Anyways, it is an amazing movie and oh my!  you just have to see it.  It was so amazing.  I haven't been this excited about  movie since the 6th movie.  Okay, I have been excited about almost all of the movies since I first saw the first one many years ago.  I didn't actually see the first movie in the theatre.  As a matter of fact, I refused to see the 1st 2 movies because I loved the books so much that I just couldn't possibly be as good as the books.  Well, enter my students, Matthew and Michael and their brother Andrew.  I was babysitting them and they wanted to watch a movie.  Naturally, it was the first Harry Potter Movie.  I rolled my eyes in my head (so they wouldn't see) and sat down next to Andrew (he was about 4 or 5 at the time) to watch the movie.  Well, needless to say, I loved the movie.  I was hooked.  It was so well done and it followed the book pretty well enough that it didn't bother me when it didn't.  I promptly went home and said to Mom we have to get the first 2 Harry Potter Movies so we went to get them.  This was all right before the 3rd movie came out.  When it came out we went to the Henry Ford Museum IMAX theatre and saw the movie there.  I got group tickets for my students and their parents.  We had about 30 parents and students going with us.  It was great.  My little guy, Mark sat right beside me with his mom on the other side.  Wow, he must be in High School by now.  He was so small at that point.  Now he is so much older.  They grow entirely too fast.  Just look at Lily.  She is now 13.  Wasn't she just 6 the other day?  It sure seems that way sometimes.  She is on vacation right now.  I have read the posts her mother and sister have written and it seems like they are having a good time.  I sure hope so.

I didn't have any lessons today.  I have to copy some music for my new student tomorrow.  I am not sure of everything I will give him.  He is an adult but he doesn't speak very good English so we shall see if he shows up tomorrow.  I also will have my new piano student from Takelessons, Logan.  He has his lesson at 7 pm.  Breanna has her lesson at 12:30.  I was so exhausted I had to lie down.  I slept on and off for 2 hours.  I hope I sleep okay tomorrow.  I have to be up a bit early for Breanna's lesson.  She is such a neat girl.  She is almost 16 and ready for her driver's license.  She has finished all her hours and tests.  She just needs to turn 16.

Dance Moms is on tonight.  For some crazy reason I like the insanity of the show.  I don't know why because I am not usually into these type of reality TV shows but I do like this one.  I think it reminds me a bit of my days practically living in a dance studio but my dance teacher was not this insane.  She had favorites and it showed, but she wasn't as crazy as this lady is.  She didn't pit the students against each other like I think this lady does sometimes.  Two of my friends are dance teachers and a 3rd student from our studio owns her own studio too.

I am still very tired tonight.  I am looking forward to Breanna and Logan tomorrow.  I am nervous about the adult student because they just don't stay very long, most of them.  I am going to go and get the music and copy it.  I hope you are having a good night too.


  1. Thanks for your well wishes! I am pretty excited about the shop! Can you believe I haven't seen Harry Potter yet? I planned to go this past weekend, but it wasn't playing at our local theater, so we saw The Rise of the Planet of the Apes. It was really good! I was definitely pleasantly surprised!
    Oh, we are finally signing Charlotte up for piano lessons! I am really excited about that!
    Take care!

  2. I only read the first couple of line because you gave away some of the plot! Hope you're well though, and that you're having a good day :)
