Soooooooo tired...'s 5 am...I've been up all night, working like a House Elf...there are people coming today to take our refrigerator, stove, microwave, power transformers and wardrobes! I've been busy all night long, cleaning and moving things about. Actually, I started in the morning...but it's hard to get much done when you've got a poltergeist that won't leave your side. But now I'm finally working on the stove. Last thing. Biggest task. So tired. And they could be here in as soon as 2 and a half hours!!! Ugh...I guess I'd better get back to it...I'll be glad when we're on the road to Germany!!!

    Week 8 activity - Anagrams!

    1. SPARSE VENUES = Severus Snape
    2. GO UNLOAD LOVE = Luna Lovegood
    3. A MOTH SEDAN = Thomas Dean
    4. FLUSH CIGAR = Argus Filch

    Wow! This anagram was more challenging than the other ones. I can make easier sense of randomly jumbled letters than I can deconstructing actual words to make names...LOL But I got done, nonetheless, even with having to take the time to get a kid ready for school and take him to the bus stop. Whew! :)
