My wild and crazy week.

I am so happy that it is finally the weekend. I've been so busy trying to keep us with my homework and work on my spoilee's package put together.

I was beginning to think that I'd never get out of the library. I was doing an extra credit project for Runes. I was trying to find all the runes for protection on a house or dwelling. The professor thought it would be great project for me since my family has just moved into a new house in a nice muggle community, it's really not that we don't trust muggles it is just better to be safe than sorry.

I'm so excited to see my partners package come together. I can't wait to sent the owl off to her, I hope she likes everything I've found for her.
