I'm off to Sacramento...  
...for the weekend to see Bets in 1776. :) I know she only has one song in the show and is probably only in about 12 minutes of the entire show, but really, how could I miss seeing my favorite performer in my favorite musical? Besides, it brings back such nice memories - the VERY first time I saw Bets on stage was way back in 2001 in that infamous production Reprise production of 1776 (where I also first met Kevin!) :)

It should be a great weekend! In addition, after years of speaking with her on the phone everyday at work, I'm finally meeting one of my friends (co-workers) who works out of our Sacramento office for one of the shows!! AND after years of interaction online, I am also finally getting to meet alligatorandme for a show too :) - so it really is going to be a fun weekend. :D

A Sydney Note...

Yesterday this arrived for us. We'd ordered it last week and were REALLY impressed with what a good job they did. Somehow now I feel that I have closure to Sydney's life... Not that we'd EVER forget her, but now I feel that we can put the whole chapter of her long, long illness behind us and know that she'll still always be a part of our lives. There were a lot of tears last night, but I think both Mark & I know that she'll always be a part of our family - it doesn't matter that she's no longer with us.

My workmates were also sweet enough to chip in to get me a beautiful frame (for the family portrait we recently took) as a sympathy gift. It was SO unexpected and SO sweet of them! When they handed the package to me, I couldn't help but burst into tears. As I've said so many times before - they are the reasons I could never leave my job!

I'm off to pack... Yes, I'm still pretty much the queen of procrastination! I hope you all have a lovely weekend - if for some reason I don't have internet access in Sacramento (which I doubt, but you never know...) please have a safe and fun long weekend! :) HUGS!

What great coworkers you have! It's not wonder you stay with them.

I hope you have a wonderful, carefree weekend!

They are just wonderful!! As much as I don't like my job, I've never found a better group of co-workers. They're the reason I've stayed at my job for so long!

Wow, that plaque is gorgeous! And how sweet of your coworkers to do the frame for you too. :)

I hope you have a great weekend! :) It sounds like there are a lot of fun things planned. I'll be thinking about you having a great time seeing shows while I'm at work, but at least it's a home football weekend so we can wear jeans and Texas A&M shirts instead of our vests tomorrow. *lol*

My co-workers are so wonderful!! I feel so lucky to have such a great group of people in my office. :)

I'm so sorry you have to work this weekend! :( But it's nice that you can wear jeans. :)

Have a safe drive in... so sorry! It seems like this is the worst weekend to be driving into Sacramento. :( See you tomorrow!

Re: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwww.......
Thanks so much! It's actually an urn, with a laser picture of Sydney on the top (I know from the picture, it's hard to tell what it is...)

And I agree completely, when we spend SOOO much time at work, having wonderful co-workers like I've been blessed to have is a necessity!

What sweet co-workers!!

Have a safe flight! I wish it would work out so I could get up there to see you, but alas, not a good weekend for that. Anyway, next time I am in Hawaii... for sure!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on September 1st, 2007 06:04 am (UTC)
They're wonderful!! I love them!!

Sorry I'm here on such a bad weekend! :( But 100 mile drive in and the Bay Bridge being closed is just awful timing. :( Next time, for sure!

Hey! You're in my time zone!!! :D That in itself is exciting!!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on September 1st, 2007 06:09 am (UTC)
HAHA!!! :D I HAVE to meet you one day, Andrea - I just HAVE TO!! :D

You are really having great co-workers! The poster of Sydney is beautiful, I like it.

Spending some time with friends sounds very good to me. :) Hope you will have a wonderful weekend! Big hugs and love to you, Sheri!

I agree - I absolutely love my co-workers - they're SOOO sweet! :)

And I guess it's kind of hard to see what it is from the photo, but it's actually an urn. The company we ordered it from did an excellent job. :)

Have a great weekend, Sabine!! HUGS!

That urn is really nice. Where did you get it from?
Sheri: Sydney is...shutterbug93 on September 1st, 2007 06:08 am (UTC)
I ordered it from here:

Mark and I were so happy to have found them because not only did they do a beautiful job, and were very nice and cordial (they had to call me to send a higher resolution photo), but we received it so quickly!!

That is a beautiful plaque. She will be missed but will live on in your heart forever.
