Harry Potter the Halfway Point (and some other stuff)

Happy Monday!
Today Ryan went back to the babysitter's for the first time in 2 weeks. I was anticipating some apprehension, but he went to her with no problem. It's amazing to me how much he has changed in the last 2 weeks. I didn't realize it until I started telling the sitter all his new skills. WOW!
Something is wrong with our doggie... Nothing physical, but he has clearly lost his mind and now thinks it is acceptable to poop in the house. He has done this about 3 times in the last week (and peed twice). He even does it when we are home now! No warning, no asking to go out, just poop on the only carpet in the house (of course!). No idea why but it is getting really old, really fast!
I am leaving work today - supposedly for an appointment, but really I want to hit the grocery store and read some more before Rob and Ryan get home!
I have hit the halfway point of this book and will offer my review thus far (without giving away any major details).
As I said in my previous post, there is something interesting in the second chapter that carries through the whole book (thus far) and I still say there is more than meets the eye.
New characters are interesting. I am still trying to figure out if the new professor is good or dark. Supposedly there is another death at Hogwarts. It has not happened yet, but there have been 2 close calls so far.
The half-blooded prince has been introduced (sort of). We still don't know who it is, but I have a feeling who it might be and again there may be something sinister to it, but I don't know yet.
The characters have grown up a lot. There is some serious sexual tension floating around Hogwarts and it is an interesting element to a somewhat darker story.
I guess that is all I will say for now. I think once I finish I will post my whole report without details, but make a detailed one available via email for those who have already read it.
Okay, I should get some work done before I leave for the day!

I can't wait to find out what point in the book you're at now, Andrea. I just finished reading it this morning and was SHOCKED by what happened (again, I don't want to give anything away, either). I can't wait for someone else to be done with it so I can talk about it! No one else I know has finished it yet and I'm DYING! ;-)
