There's been so much going on lately...  
...and I apologize to everyone for not being around for awhile. It's been a very emotionally draining week and I'm finding that I'm tending to retreat deeper and deeper within myself during this time... :P I'm sorry I haven't had the chance to respond to a lot of your earlier comments - please know that I appreciate them all so much - as I do your friendship - I would really be lost without you all. Big HUGS!

Update on my Grandmother

This past week my grandmother was admitted back to the hospital because of another gall stone attack. :( It's really sad for me to think of her as anything less than the strong woman that I remember... It wasn't even a month ago that Mark and I were in Hilo spending time with her and she was as strong and as healthy as ever. :(

Update on the whole robbery business...

We FINALLY installed a security alarm system! Not only an alarm system, but after YEARS of not having one, we had to re-install a phone line - specifically for the system. :P The entire thing is costing us quite a bit, but I think in the end, just having the peace of mind will be worth it.

Speaking of which, it got to the point where I didn't want to be in the house alone,... I'd stay at work a bit longer to ensure that I wasn't the first one home and leave before Mark so I wouldn't be the last one there... I'd come home twice to find our house had been robbed and it's the strangest damn feeling in the world to realize that someone's been going through your private things... I never want to have to go through that again... And hopefully with extra precautions, we won't have to.

Due South

I just finished watching Seasons 3 & 4 of Due South and I have to say... I've fallen in LOVE with the series. :) It may be really silly at times and a lot of it is really pretty dated, but it's surprisingly heartfelt and I just love Paul Gross and Callum Keith Rennie together. And as embarrassing as it may seem, I've been recently getting addicted to Due South fan fiction... I really have to say, Due South slash is incredibly, incredibly addictive! And I've just been shocked at the sheer abundance of it on the internet...

LA theatre trips

My theatre trip in late April is coming up - both a lot sooner than I expected and a lot slower... It feels like I've been away from LA theatre for SOOO long - I'm really beginning to feel like I'm going through withdrawals. :P I have my theatre schedule planned out (for the most part) except for Thursday evening... I'm trying to decide if I should drive all the way to Ventura to see Joseph Fuqua in "Hamlet" or try to see "The Marvelous Wonderettes" again... Knowing that Bets will probably not be in makes the decision an even harder one...

In any case, it's been far too long and I really need to get out and see some LA theatre... I think it'll be good for my soul...

I hope everyone has been well... I haven't logged in for about a week, so I need to go and catch up on all of your entries. Hope you're all having a nice weekend. Big HUGS!

Thanks so much for your comments, Angela!! And I have to say that I feel much safer now that we've installed the alarm. :) It's pretty cool because it immediately calls the monitoring company who calls the police on our behalf. :)

Thanks for your good thoughts for my grandmother. Big HUGS to you, Angela!

*hugs* I am sorry to hear the news on your grandmother. Good thoughts from here.

I'm glad you decided to get an alarm, because you really can't put a pricetag on peace of mind, I would have done the same thing in your situation. :)

We're thinking of you here. :)

Thanks so much for your comments and your good thoughts for my grandmother, Laura!

And how true - you can't put a price tag on peace of mind. I know it cost a lot, but I think it was a good investment. :)

Thanks so much for everything, Laura! Big HUGS to you!!

*Hugs* To retreat ... Yes, I know that. It's not easy to get out of it again.

I missed you, Sheri and I'm glad to see you!

I'm very sorry to hear that your grandmother had another gall stone attack. I wish her all the best and send good thoughts her way.

I would be scared too if this robbery had happened to me. I'm glad you got an alarm system. I hope that it helps to make you feel safe again and that you never again will have to deal with such a happening.

When do you will be in LA? At any case, I hope you will have a wonderful time there!

Take care, please. Big *hugs* and love to you, Sheri!

Thanks so much for your comment, Sabine and for the gift of your friendship!! I've missed you so much while I was away - I can only stay away from LJ for so long, I've found... :P

Thanks for your good thoughts for my grandmother!

And I will be in LA the last week of April. I think I really need some time off after all that's happened...

Big HUGS to you, Sabine and hope that you're having a nice week!!

Good, now I won't worry so much while I am gone.
Peace of mind will make life so much better.
