Doug & Sheri

Finally home, Kevin, and Chad Brannon? ;)

Yay! I finally made it home! No more 20 cent a minute internet usage on Kinkos computers. ;) I love traveling, but 2 weeks was a little long to be away from home. :P When Mark picked me up at the airport and I saw the fuzzy dog sitting in the back seat, I knew that I'd been away too long - it was the nicest sight I could've seen. :) Since coming home, Sydney's been following me closely around the house (never lets me out of her sight) and whines whenever I go somewhere she can't. :( I've missed them SO much, it's just so nice to be home! :)

It was a great two weeks, though and even if I've been doing sporadic updates from various Kinkos in CA, I wanted to quickly mention some great moments these past two weeks before I forget.

Kevin was wonderful as always and we spent some time talking about everything from Julie's episode of "Alias" to Dave's dog, to his recent weight loss. He said he lost 15 pounds and two pants sizes since June. I asked him what kind of diet he was on and he said he just cut out sugar and bread. I asked him, "Just sugar and bread and you lost all that weight?" He laughed and said, "I used to eat A LOT of sugar!" I told him that it was probably a bad idea to get him the Big Island Candies for opening night and he said, "No! They were a great idea! I just had to spread them out and couldn't eat them all at once." :)

We also talked about the new ending that he directed for "Ten Commandments" (Bets Malone was nice enough to tell me before the show that Kevin was asked to direct an alternate ending - which I thought was better than the ending I'd seen the week before.) We also talked about his family and for the first time he talked about his Dad, who I'd never really seen (though I've seen his Mom at numerous shows) :)

He's always so generous with his time and even stayed behind to talk with me for a bit, when he had Julie, Chinese food, and the game waiting for him at home between shows. I felt bad and didn't want to keep him, but he kept saying he lived only 10 minutes away. He's just the best! :)

I have a lot of pictures of the weekend that I wanted to post, but I think I'll have to do that tomorrow and I should head downstairs and spend some quality time with my family who I've missed SO much while I was away! Thank you to everyone for making me feel less homesick throughout my trip! Hope you all have a nice evening. :)

Some trip photos. :)

I really should be sleeping right now since it's almost 3am in LA and I've been up since about 3am LA time this morning (I always wake up at an unGodly hour the morning I fly out because I have this irrational fear of missing my flight completely). :P But since sleep seems to be the last thing on my mind right now, I decided to post a few photos of the trip. :)

Well, I'd better grab the fuzzy dog and head off to bed anyway so I'm not a complete zombie my first day back at work. :P I will probably need all of my sensibilities tomorrow to deal with the pile up that (no doubt) has been collecting on my desk. :P Hope you all have a nice evening. :)
