Yay! The hubby's home! :D  
Sorry for my lack of updates recently. :P This new healthy eating and exercise plan that I'm on again has been literally consuming all my free time lately. :P When I'm not exercising, I'm planning out my meals (adding up calories and grams of fat) and cutting fruits and vegetables and preparing food for lunch and mid-morning snacks. I remember now why I stopped doing this - it was so much easier to just grab a granola bar or bagel on the way out of the house and call that breakfast... :P

In happy news, Mark came home on Monday! :D I think this was the first time that I couldn't wait for the weekend to be over! All weekend I kept thinking, "It's almost Monday..." It's a shame that work had to come WITH that Monday, but at least the hubby is safely home. :D And it's funny but I'd always thought of myself as being fairly independent (I lived alone in Santa Barbara for almost 4 years in college and I just love to travel by myself) so I thought that the four days that Mark was away wouldn't be too bad... but I really found myself missing him a lot while he was away! :( To think that this little Vegas trip was only four days - what'll I do when he's in Japan for two weeks in October? :P

Mark had a wonderful time in Vegas, though and proudly showed me all the photos he took on his trip. :) As I looked through them I noticed that none of them had people in them, they were only photos of the food he ate! I guess it's clear to see what's important to him about his trips! ;)

On a completely separate theatre note, Bets' show "Will Rogers Follies" opens in Vista tomorrow night and on Sunday, Kevin will be performing at the Hollywood Bowl with Jeremy Irons, Melissa Errico, and James Barbour in "Camelot". I'm disappointed that I'll be missing another show at the Hollywood Bowl (I always miss Kevin's performances there!), but with conversion just around the corner, there's no way I would've been able to take the time off from work. :(

Well, I'd better run and grab a much needed shower, but before I leave I wanted to send out a big Happy Birthday wish to beam861, whose birthday is on the 10th! Hope you have a nice one, Barb - miss you around here! :) Hope you all have a nice evening. :)

No need to apologize. We all can't be on LJ every minute of every day. :D

I'm glad Mark made it home safely. :)

Thanks Carrie. Sometimes I feel bad because I have no energy at the end of the day and I feel like I'm being a bad LJ friend. :(

I'm so happy that Mark is home, though! :D

I'm so glad Mark had a nice trip! I've never been to Vegas, but really want to go.

In other news... who is Kevin playing in Camelot?!
Sheri: Kevin 2003 headshotshutterbug93 on August 12th, 2005 08:36 am (UTC)
I've only been to Vegas a few times (maybe three...) and though I enjoyed it, it's really not my first choice of vacation spots. I guess I've never really been too much of a gambler.

Kevin's playing Sir Sagramore. He tried out for Lancelot, but the role went to James Barbour. It's all good though because I've become a huge James Barbour fan as well (after seeing him in "The Ghost & Mrs. Muir") :D

That's AWESOME that he's playing Sir Sagramore! One of my favorite numbers is "Then You May Take Me to the Fair" which Kevin will get to be a part of! I only wish I were able to see it. :D

You are back to your healthy eating and exercise plan. :) But it sounds like much work.

I'm glad to hear that Mark had a wonderful time and a safe trip. :) And, to me, that you missed him so much does not mean that you are not independent, it just shows how much you love him. :)

Hope you had a nice day, Sheri. Big *hugs* to you

It's a lot of work, but I guess the end result is all worth it (at least that's what I keep telling myself!) ;)

Thanks for your sweet comments, Sabine! :) Your comments ALWAYS make me smile! :D

Hope you're having a nice week! Big *HUGS* to you, Micki, and Garry! :D

I'm glad that Mark is back. :)

Yay for healthy eating.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on August 12th, 2005 08:39 am (UTC)
I'm so glad he's back too! I really missed him! :(

Healthy eating is great, but so expensive and so time-consuming! :P

Hey Sherri,

I hope you don't mind adding me again. It didn't work out on the other journal so I moved. Hopefully you will add me back because I do like reading about you.

Hi Kristen! I've added you! :D

Sometimes I wonder if Barb and I both didn't have lupus and if you and Barb both didn't have Shelties if we ever would've met! :| That would've been horrible.

I'm glad that Mark is back home safe and sound. Tom's never traveled without me, but I went to two needle arts conventions (within two weeks of each other) last year by myself and it was so hard being away from both Tom and Cameron (and the pets, too).

That would've been horrible.

That would've been beyond horrible! :( I can't imagine having been able to make it through Sydney's illness if I didn't know you! :( *HUGS*
