Sheri - fingerspelling

An update on hubby, working at the fair, and my next LA trip! :)

A little update on Mark,... his shingles seem to be a bit better. He's in the scabbing stage and all the random little dots on his face seem to have vanished. He's even gone back to work - half days, but it's a start. This week would have been 3 weeks that he's been away from work and he was starting to go a little stir-crazy at home.

I, on the other hand, haven't been home for a while. Last week Wednesday night, I flew to Kauai and stayed there overnight to host the Race to Retirement event (the big party our department hosts for our bank branches). I stayed at the Kauai Marriott (very nice!) and flew back to Honolulu early the next morning and drove directly to work from there. So I didn't really have much "at home" time the past couple of weeks. :P

This past weekend, I spent most of my time on Saturday and Sunday volunteering at the 50th State Fair. I always love working at the fair because it's a great way to interact with the deaf community and they are always so appreciative of the volunteers. We help them to take customer orders and then translate what the customers say back to them. And I think that I've met some of the nicest people working at the fair. Not to mention the fact that I got to practice my ASL, which is not a bad thing at all... The only downside was that it was deathly HOT in the wagons we were working in and the smell of the hamburger meat was starting to make me feel a bit queasy... Other than that, I'd work there again in a heartbeat! :)

On an LA theatre note, I leave for LA again next week Thursday, and I've tentatively figured out my theatre schedule...

Friday (June 20th; eve): Daytime Emmys (yes, I'm insane, remember my last post?)
Saturday (June 21st; mat): MAYBE... A Chorus Line @ Ahmanson, or possibly Summer & Smoke @ the Skirball Center
Saturday (June 21st; eve): EITHER... A Chorus Line @ Ahmanson, or possibly Dog Sees God again. :)
Sunday (June 22nd; mat): The Who's Tommy @ Ricardo Montalban Theatre, 3pm
Sunday (June 22nd; eve): Dog Sees God @ Hudson Backstage, 7pm
Monday (June 23rd; eve): The Fix @ Alex Theatre, 8pm

If anyone has any suggestions for shows for my Saturday (matinee and evening) I'd love to hear them. I was focused so much on the Daytime Emmys that I'm afraid my theatre ticket buying is WAAAAY behind! :(

Hope everyone's doing well! It's been so long since I've been here, I feel so out of touch! :(
