I knew if I blogged about it, something would happen regarding my Harry Potter book. Well, the FedEx guy dropped off a box today and lo and behold, addressed to "Mr. Malaprop and boys" were three copies of Deathly Hallows from Uncle X. I think I was explicitly left out. Huh. One copy seems to be our original, and the other two were packaged in a bag with a receipt from the bookstore. I have talked it over with the kids and we have decided to return at least one if not both of the new ones. Have not decided what to do with the money yet. I will ask the boys if they think we should send it back to Uncle X or spend it on something else.
Will you help us decide? Any opinions? Do you want to hear the whole story, or should I just let it go? Actually, I have been trying to let it go. Time is good for me that way.
May I always be given the time I need to cool down.
Please help me keep my foot out of my mouth for the right reasons, humility and forgiveness - not pride.
