Whew! I am off and running

WOW! What a crazy first week. I am beyond my ears in all my stuff. I best begin at the beginning and see how many can figure it out.

Being a part of two families is really rough. As I am a second year here, I also am a married student with three children. My oldest child is a student here as well, though I dare not mention that because as a proud Slytherin himself, he would NOT like it known that I am here taking classes as well. But, due to his introverted nature, he was not adjusting to this way of life as well as some who have known about Hogwarts for awhile. So the Headmistress invited me to join the Slytherin house for a semester since all the inter-house unity scholarships were made available. We thought that would be a grand idea. So, along with a few fellow housemates, I changed.

Dear Mr. Crookshanks received a promotion at the end of last semester. With that privilege comes great responsibility. That responsibility forced us to move across the country. So, I packed up our things and along with the three children moved us to a temporary lodging facility to await the Ministry connecting our new home to the floo network. Unfortunately, we all know how well the Ministry works and somewhere, our paper work is sitting in a pile awaiting for someone to notice it. Until then, we are patiently making do.

Classes began on Monday for us and we are off and running. We managed to get all the kids physicals for entering in the muggle schools done on Monday. Rowena did NOT like having to get 5 shots. I do not like the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. He is crazy. I think he is being managed by the Ministry is not a good way. There is not a single reason why we should not be learning actual spells. I am wondering if Professor Umbridge morphed into this new Professor. I will continue to make notes about him to show to Professor Snape. I am seeing quite a few similarities. I may even have to reveal my notes to Dear Walden and have him look into what may be occuring at the Ministry.

Whew, just listing what occured on Monday has already wore me out. I don't know how I am going to keep this up all semester. Hopefully, I can maintain the schedule. Though not much time left for knitting. Well, maybe I can turn one hour for something so important as that.

Happy Knitting.
