For us Harry Potter fans, we have been waiting anxiously for the fall, but November 21st is no longer the movie release date for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. They've just announced that it's now being pushed back to July 17, 2009. There have been no delays on filming or editing. The film would be ready for November release, but they have decided that a summer release is more beneficial to them.
Now I'm not a complainer, but what the crap? I don't mind waiting for things, but 8 months is ridiculous.

Okay, before you read what the name is, I want everyone to read this. The reason I didn't post the name earlier is because I didn't want someone say, "Oh, my sister just named her baby that!" or "I grew up with a guy named that." and so forth. I'm the type of person that if I hear the name too much, I start to hate it. It took Gavin and I a long time to actually agree on a name, and now that we're pretty sure that this is it...I don't want to hear it so much that I hate it.

For those who don't know the story, when we moved into our home the only thing that bothered me about the house was what the previous owners had put up for a back splash...vinyl tiles that are sticky on the back. These tiles are meant for the floor, so the tiles would constantly fall off the wall. So, to remedy the situation, the previous owners got some Trim & Molding Glue (for putting up baseboards and crown molding) and glued the ones the would repeatedly fall. I looked awful, and some pieces were still falling off. And one day it was all too much. Gavin and I always knew that we were going to put up a better back splash, and I was tired of all the falling "tile", so I tore it off. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the previous back splash, but here's what the wall looked like after.

Since our house is going on the market...there are things to be done. We've done landscaping, installed a ceiling fan, tiled the back splash in our kitchen, we're getting ready to paint 3 rooms plus touch-ups throughout the house, and then we still have more landscaping after that. Once the projects are done, then we have to clean and organize everything all over again.
