Survived Another Father's Day...

First of all I wanted to thank all of you for the wonderful words of support in my last post - I was getting a bit depressed about Father's Day and you all helped to pull me out of the funk I was in... *hugs* to all of you! :)

I have to say that today wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be - I had been dreading today for a while now - whenever I turned on the TV or opened a newspaper all I saw was talk of Father's Day sales and Father's Day this or that and it was getting a bit depressing. But Mark & I did go to Punchbowl today to visit my Dad and I brought him the little bouquet of flowers that I got for him and I was pleasantly surprised to see so many beautiful flowers, leis, etc. there. I think Mark is a bit uncomfortable whenever we visit my Dad's grave because he doesn't know how to act. I usually don't stay there too long, and I think he wonders if I leave so soon because I don't want him feeling uncomfortable. It's partly that, but to me, my Dad isn't there at Punchbowl - he's there everyday with me in my memories and though I'll go to visit and bring him flowers, the place that he's most alive in is my heart. :) And I don't feel bad about that at all. :)

SO - on to happier things since I've probably be-labored this Father's Day issue enough for one day. ;) I've semi planned out my next LA trip... but once again, I'm waiting for the last minute air fares that Aloha offers and just kills me that I probably won't know for sure about my flights until a week or so before I leave. :P Contemplating other shows while I'm in town - but all the theatres that I usually frequent (The Colony, Laguna Playhouse, Reprise) are all dark that weekend. :(

And how I wished I lived in NYC sometimes... THIS would be just wonderful to see... Not for Melanie Griffith, though - but for Norm Lewis (the man has the voice of a God!), Raul Esparza, and Carolee Carmello. :) But, *sigh* no NYC for me until next year... :(
