Yay! The hubby comes home tomorrow! :D  
Sorry I haven't been around much lately... :( With Mark not around, there really hasn't been much to write about. I did get an email from him the other day and apparently he's come down with a cold. :( Poor Mark! :( And although he's having a great time, he really sounds like he's ready to come home. His flight actually gets in on Monday morning so by the time I come home from work, he'll be back. :) I can't wait, this has been a LONG two weeks!

Speaking of traveling, I've been toying with the idea of planning a neighbor island getaway together with the hubby (since our 7th anniversary is just around the corner). Aloha Airlines is running a special airfare deal - just $33 one way!! It's never been that inexpensive before!! The problem is that neither one of us has a free weekend between now and the time that the air fare special ends. :( It would've been nice to get away for the weekend - especially since we don't usually get to visit the neighbor islands. :)

In happy November trip planning news, Kristi Holden (who starred with Kevin in "Carousel" in Thousand Oaks a few years ago) messaged me to let me know that she's been cast as Nanette in Musical Theatre Guild's reading of "No, No Nanette" on November 14th!! I'm so excited because I'd planned on seeing this anyway... The fact that Kristi is starring in it just makes it that much better. :)

And finally, I found this on angeldove's journal:

How long did you date?:Not too long, maybe three months or so before we got engaged...
How long have you been married?:In November it'll be 7 years. :)
What is your anniversary date?:November 21st
The Past
Where did you meet?:In the parking lot of the Hawaii Jaycee office.
Was it love at first sight?:No, it really wasn't... I thought he was a nice guy, but no...
Who asked who on the 1st date?:He did - he asked me if I was doing anything on Saturday and asked if I wanted to "hang out" - I'm still unsure if that was a date. ;)
Where did you go on the 1st date?:Went out to eat dinner at Pietro's Restaurant. :)
Did you like him any better then?:I don't understand this question, obviously - I like him (and love him) much more than I did then...
How was the 1st kiss?:Very sweet.
The Present
Do you still hold hands?:Yes we do! :)
Do you still kiss? (and enjoy it?):Yes (of course.) :)
Do you LOVE your in-laws?:I really like my in-laws, they're sweet.
Does he love yours?:I think he and my Mom really get along. :)
Do you have children yet?:No children, just a fuzzy dog. :)
What are their names and ages?:The fuzzy dog is 8 years old and her name is Sydney. :)
Did he/Does he help you change the diapers?:No diapers needed in raising a puppy. ;)
Who has control in this relationship?:Both of us...
What does he do that annoys you the most?:Hmmmm.... if I had to pick one thing it would be his habit of procrastinating.
Is he a changed man since the marriage?:Not so much - just little things, like he's a little better about talking about his feelings (and taking out the trash) ;)
Has he gained 50 lbs and complete possession of the remote control?:He has complete possession of the remote only because I don't watch TV. ;) He and I have both gained weight since the wedding, but we're trying to be healthier.
Are you still friends?:He's my best friend!!!
Do you still love each other as much as the day you married?:More! Each day there are more things to learn about him and more things to love. :)
The Future
How long do you plan on staying married to this man?:What kind of question is this? :P Forever - he's my soulmate!

Not so much - just little things, like he's a little better about talking about his feelings (and taking out the trash) ;)

I had to laugh on this one, hahaha!!! Taking out the trash. LOL!!!

Some of the questions there are kinda redundant, isn't it? It's like the person who created this survey is senile, hahahahahaha. Anyway, great answers, Sheri!!!!!

I think you guys should take that "get away" trip for $33 dollars one way. That's a bargain. And yeah, your anniversary is coming up!!!!!!!!
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on October 17th, 2005 07:28 am (UTC)
Haha! So true about taking out the trash, though! :) He's gotten much better about it after we got married, I don't really know why, but I'm not complaining! ;)

And I noticed the questions were VERY redundant!! And what's the big emphasis on diapers and who has control? Other than that it was a pretty great survey - thanks for letting me steal it from you. :)

*SIGH* I'd love to get away with Mark to the neighbor island (it usually costs about $190 RT!!) but our weekends are just so packed between now and when the special ends (December 31st) - the holiday season is just so busy for us!!

YAY for the hubby coming home!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on October 17th, 2005 07:29 am (UTC)
Awwwww, Stacey - thanks SO much!!! :) Big *HUGS* to you and good luck on your mid term tomorrow (though I know you won't need the luck!!) :)

I'm sorry to hear that Mark apparently got a cold. :( Hope it is not too bad! But I'm sure you both will be happy Monday evening. :D

Thanks for sharing the survey, I loved to read your answers. And did I get it right that you can go to the market on a Sunday? Here are all stores and also the market closed so that I had to go hungry to bed. Well, "to go hungry to bed" is actually a lie because I could buy a pizza in the pizzeria or something similar. :)

Hope you had a nice Sunday.

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri.

Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on October 17th, 2005 07:32 am (UTC)
Oh my, your markets aren't open on Sundays? If I lived there, I'd starve! ;) I do all of my marketing for the week on Sundays... Most of our markets here are even open 24 hours - so I can run down in the middle of the night (which I've done before) to get something that I've forgotten to buy...

Big *HUGS* to you, Sabine. :)

YAY for Mark coming home soon!!

And I hope you guys DO get a chance to get a weekend away together!

Have a great rest of the weekend. :)

Awww, thanks Karen!! I'll be SO happy tomorrow! :D

Hope you have a fabulous week!! :D

YAY for Mark coming home very soon! :)
What a bummer that he has a cold though.

Going to a neighbor island sounds wonderful! I think you two need to find the time for a nice weekend get away. :)
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on October 17th, 2005 07:35 am (UTC)
Awww, thanks Carrie! I'm so excited that he'll finally be home! :D I hope he's feeling better and gets a chance to sleep on his flights home!

I'd love to go to the neighbor island with Mark!!! I think our weekends are too booked up, though. :( I'll talk to him when he comes home and see what he says. :D

Sheri: Mark & Sheri 1999shutterbug93 on October 17th, 2005 07:36 am (UTC)
I really can't wait for him to come home! It's been a long two weeks without him. :)

Sheri, have you tried Airborne? You should pick it up from Costco. You have to go up to the counter though. It's REALLY GOOD! It helps fight colds and it does work. My voice teacher just recommended it to me a few weeks ago. She said to buy it at Costco, since it's about $5.27. It was on sale at Longs for $4.99 but not anymore.
Sheri: Mark & Sheri 1999shutterbug93 on October 17th, 2005 07:38 am (UTC)
I think Mark took some Airborne with him on his trip! :) I gave him some initially and I think he bought more before he left... I think it was the cold weather and the constant on-the-go that made him sick. :( And $5.27 is a great price!! I bought it at Longs (not on sale) for $6.99 (?)
Kananigirlkananigirl on October 17th, 2005 08:12 am (UTC)
Wow that could definitely be it. I hate colds. I don't want any colds. YUCK! Yeah, Longs is like $6.99 or so. It was on sale for $4.99 not too long ago. That's when I bought it from Longs, but Costco also got it for cheap.

Aside form me and Lily you two seem to be one of the more happy couples I have come across, seems like most I know don't have much magic left.
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on October 17th, 2005 07:39 am (UTC)
Awww, what a sweet thing to say, Doug! I love reading about how happy you and Lily are too!! :D Big *HUGS* to you!

I'm glad Mark is coming home today.
