Doug & Sheri

All packed and set to leave for... :P I'm going to the airport straight from work tonight and part of me always feels rushed whenever I leave for a trip directly after work. All the "Did I forget anything?" questions pop into my head all day and I feel a little distracted. Luckily Mark took today off so he can get some last minute trip things done before we leave tonight (like take Sydney to the in-laws, etc.) So it's a full day of work then the dreaded red eye flight. :P

As much as I love to travel, I hate flying. Especially red eye flights for some reason. I'm actually pretty good about being able to sleep on the plane, but somehow even if I manage to sleep the entire 6 hour flight, I still feel exhausted when we arrive in LA. :P At least red eyes don't waste an entire day of vacation, but it's been a while since I've been on one, and I'm not particularly looking forward to it. :P

And I have to mention how shocked I was to hear about the passing of John Ritter... I saw him on stage in "Dinner Party" about three years ago in NYC and then more recently in the audience of "The Most Happy Fella" in LA. He always seemed to be such a pleasant man with such a pleasant disposition. How terribly sad! :(

On a trip note, I ended up NOT buying tickets to see "Babes In Arms" at Reprise! on Saturday. The ticket website was down for a few days and when I called the box office from work yesterday, I was on hold for about 45 minutes before I gave up. :( I just bought tickets to see the "Fantastiks" at Deaf West Theatre instead. I'd always wanted to see a production there so it works out really well. :)

Hope everyone has a nice weekend! :) Take care and lots of *hugs* to you all!
