concerned friends will cheer to the fact that I've finally started the Harry Potter books, in audio, but I've started. Jim Dale is everything various friends have made him out to be...what a great narration talent! I have an hour commute one way to work so it takes only a few days to do away with a 7 CD book. Seven CD's = ~8 hours which in turn = ~4 days.
I'm noticing that OOTP has 23 CD's and 26 hours and 30 minutes so that'll take roughly 2 weeks to listen to with no outside trips anywhere. Probably GOF will be that long as well, maybe DH too. I'm particularly excited that it won't take me 7 years to finish the series as it has everyone else. Harry Potter....no lines, no waiting :)
On other fronts, I have my 3 month appointment with my therapist tomorrow and we are hopefully going to start the process of weaning off the antidepressant. I've been out of school now for a month, been on vacation, started going places after work with friends...just in general getting out more. I feel good, happier than I have in a long time. I signed up for an art class at the Museum in the fall, book making by hand, and am looking forward to that eagerly. Art on the Rocks is coming up soon also and it's toga night! I have instructions for making a toga all printed out, I just need to choose some fabric and decide just how over the top I'm willing to go :) I want the Vespa!!!
Gotta run! It's my shift on the reference desk!
