First of all, I wanted to thank you all...  
...for putting up with my moodiness the past couple of days. Thank you SO much to everyone who commented on my previous entry - you wouldn't believe how much it meant to me to read your encouraging words. Special thanks to kilikinastar for the *HUGS* today in her journal - I really needed them, thanks SO much, Kristen! I'm sorry I haven't been around LJ for a while. I really haven't been much of anywhere lately - with the exception of theatre message boards and imissmydad where just reading about others who feel the same way has made me feel not-so-alone this weekend.

Granted, the weekend is far from over and the true test will obviously be tomorrow, but I was feeling much less moody after reading all your comments and I was actually able to enjoy myself at my cousin's daughter's wedding today with my mother (I went as her "date") and I even smiled politely when one of my relatives asked my Mom why she wasn't re-married by now... Then my Mom and I went to Punchbowl Cemetery and left some flowers for my Dad. It was nice to go there with my Mom, because although Mark means well, sometimes I'm not sure if he fully understands...

When I got home he asked me how my Dad was and I said, "Still there" (in a very joking tone - I know, I was being a smart ass, but he laughed...) I sometimes feel that I have to make little flippant remarks to others because I have a hard time letting on how depressed I really am. And there are still others who don't understand why it's so hard - "It's been 14 years hasn't it?" :P Sometimes it's just easier to hide how I really feel. :P

But on to other (happier) topics because I don't want to constantly be-labor the Father's Day issue - Mark & I went to Borders this afternoon and I picked up a few books on *GASP* Flash. :P Yes, I've officially gone over to the "dark side" and have been trying to create a small Flash animation file for Kevin's site. :P Not sure if I'll ever use it, but it's been a good distraction to try to create it this weekend. :)

After Borders, Mark & I went to Genki to eat some really yummy sushi. :) Not only did I eat the best vegetable croquette there, but I finished off my dinner with chocolate mochi ice cream. :) I love mochi ice cream to begin with, but chocolate mochi ice cream is just pure heaven! And I've decided - since it's been a pretty busy day, I've chosen to feel guilty about breaking my diet tomorrow... ;)

And on a Kevin note, I'm still looking for people to see Kevin in "Guys & Dolls" with me on the 16th or 17th of July at Cal State Long Beach - anyone interested? (Hint, hint careleswhisper, karmastyx, cahwyguy, etc. ;)

Hope you all have a nice evening - I'm off to catch up on all of your journals (I know I'm WAY behind!) :P *HUGS* to all of you!

The "Still there" comment was priceless! :-)

Just keep thinking about all the great theatre you have ahead of you to look forward to, and hopefully that'll bring you some high spirits!

I would, but we move into our new house July 4th weekend, and every weekend after that save for the 16th we have Theatre tickets (Purlie, a free weekend, Wicked, then the Wizard of Oz).
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on June 20th, 2005 08:49 am (UTC)
So you probably want to take a break from theatre on the 16th, then? ;) I think I'm going to try for the Wicked lotto while I'm in town. $25 front ORCH seats, can't hurt to try... :)

I am sorry it is still so painful for you. I really don't think with time that it will ever go away. I think it's okay to still feel sad. I'm glad you were able to see him and lay flowers down for him. I'm sure he is smiling down at you today. :) Hugs!

Laura, your comments always make me smile. Thank you so much for always making me feel better. *HUGS*

14 or 40 years, the pain is still just as much there.

I hope today was as painless as it could have been. You are in my thoughts. *HUGS*

And that trip.... let me know if you have any spare time, where we could meet for dinner. Ive GOT TO meet you one of these times you are out here!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on June 20th, 2005 08:53 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for understanding, Angie. :) And we should definitely try to get together :) - I can't believe that I'm there so often and haven't met you yet! (I know, it's my fault!)

Like others said, no matter how many years would pass, you will be missing your dad and don't let others bother you about it!


I wish I can join you for G&D but I'll be seeing B&B in Sacto that weekend. I'm sure our paths will cross someday, somewhere, but I hope it'll be soon!

Your mochi ice comment reminded me that I have "green tea ice cream" in the fridge! YUM
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on June 20th, 2005 08:56 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for your sweet comments & *HUGS*. :) Hopefully one day we'll be able to meet up for a show or something (considering how frequently we're both in the LA area) :) Have fun at B&TB. :)

Yummy! I love green tea ice cream! :)
