Catching up

Just catching up. The weeks just blur together sometimes, ya know? But that’s life, I guess.

Friday was DH’s birthday. I tried to convince him he wanted to go to Disney World (Hey, it’s free!) but to no avail. Oh, well. We spent Friday out and about getting stuff done, and had dinner at Crazy Buffet (also free!) I loaded up on sushi and shrimp and crab legs. The four food groups, of course. Oh wait, what’s the fourth? Oh yeah, the chocolate fountain, of course. How could I have forgotten? After that, we went home and let our food digest.

Saturday, we met MIL and her DH for lunch. That’s interesting as always. I’ll just leave it at that. MIL is now on Facebook. That should also be interesting. I guess as long as she doesn’t find the blog, I’m okay. LOL! Actually, it was a good lunch at Honey’s. I had the buffalo shrimp and DH had the wings. Very yummy as always.

We topped the night off with a BBQ with the neighbors. We just ate and hung out. Nothing too fancy. But it was nice. Windy as hell, though. WOW! Everything just blew away. DH and our buddy Mike from down the street decided to “jam” in the garage. That was really cool. They sounded really good, so I hope there is more of that in the future. “Rock Band, Smock Band!” Who needs it when you have the real thing, right?

Sunday we just chilled for a little bit. I made a turkey breast and all that goes with it. It came out really good, and I think DH had the leftovers for lunch yesterday. Can’t beat that.

I’m tired today, though. We’ve got our show in Orlando on Friday (and the one here in two weeks), so lots of extra rehearsals this week. Two of which are actually in Orlando. Have I told you I’m tired? Must..have..caffeine..now!

One musing I have for the day. How do people get such a distorted view of reality? I’m looking at a little note I had written down some 15 years ago that I keep on me at all times. #4 says “My reality is not yours”. Ah, well, this too, shall pass.

Want to give a shout out to my good friend Jill. She lost her MIL this past weekend, while she was at the Sock Hop. Lots of good thoughts for her right now.

Luck o' the Irish to ya!

Today is St. Patty’s Day! Everyone should be a little Irish today. Even if I don’t like Corn Beef and Cabbage. Is it weird to have Taco Night on St. Patty’s day? Oh, well! Yesterday was corporate tax filing day, with luckily no big fires to put out.

So on Friday, our new “team leader” (and I use that term loosely) planned a luncheon on Friday afternoon. Not smart planning, IMHO! Yes, our testing is done, but CPA’s still want numbers. Is it evil of me to think it was poetic justice that she really couldn’t stay and drink with us, because she didn’t have her own work done? Yes, I know, so bad, so bad!

I actually stuck close to home this weekend, and got a lot accomplished. Scrubbed the deck some, cleaned bathrooms, did a few loads of laundry, washed curtains and table cloths, did everything, except mop the kitchen floor. I’ll do that tonight. Also downloaded a bunch of stuff into ITunes. I’m listening to some of it now. Lots of old stuff, like the 4 Tops and lots of new stuff too, like Death Cab for Cutie. And lots of stuff in-between! Quite a hodge podge, wouldn’t you say?

Now, this week, tickets go on sale for our big show Sing the Giants of Broadway. It is April 18th at the First Baptist Church in downtown Tampa (across the street from UT.) Tickets are $15. If you’re going, give me a holler, and I will hook you up. I have order forms now. It’s going to be a great show.

Good morning all

I just realized I hadn’t updated my blog from last week. Oops! Well, that’s what happens when tax season comes around. Busy, busy, busy around here. I’ll be glad for March 15th, really, I will be. Northing else happening, really.

Last weekend, my plans got changed at the last minute, and I went to the Incarnation crop. It was fun, a lot of my favorite people were there. Linda and Elle and Kathy L. and Michele. Val came too, it’s always good to see her. I’ll be hanging out with them Friday night, after the hockey game. Jill and Jayne too. They are coming down for the cruise that leaves on Saturday. Also, Maura was there with her table. So, Hilltop was representing.

Big news is that Tim Holtz is coming to Ruban Rouge on July 25th. I called yesterday and put my deposit down for both classes. I have no idea what they classes are, but really don’t care. It’s TIM!!!!! Woohoo! Teresa Collins is coming too, but that’s our 10th wedding anniversary, and we haven’t made our beach plans, yet, so I put her on hold this time around. Gotta save up for my other trips, too.

This Saturday is Zoo Zoom, the 5K run, walk, (crawl!) at Lowry Park Zoo. We have a team going from the office at O:so early in the morning. Egad, what have I gotten myself into there? I’m just going for the free T-shirt, haha! Oh, and to take pictures for the office newsletter.

Today is also our 14th date anniversary. Isn’t that sweet? SWAK!!!

So, other than that, looks like it will just be a busy work week as usual. Have fun!
