So, I'm hubby-less for the next two weeks. :(  
Mark left for Japan this morning with his family and while I'm extremely excited that he'll get to spend so much time with his family, I'll also miss him A LOT the two long weeks that he's gone... :( It always saddens me that I can never make these trips with him and the in-laws, but I know BIG boss would flip if I requested two weeks off in a row (not to mention during the busiest time of the year for us...)

He just called me from the Haneda airport. Apparently they have one leg left of their trip to travel. This is going to be a long two weeks...

In other news, I have my LA trip this weekend almost entirely planned. I'm mainly going for a dear friend's baby shower :), but I thought I'd try to squeeze some theatre in there as well. :) I don't have my entire schedule planned out yet, but I'll probably see the Wonderettes and Mask while I'm in town. :)

Finally, I thank all of you who sent good thoughts for my work meeting today (which was postponed from Monday...) All I can say is that it's done, and I'm SOOOO relieved. :)

I'm sad for you but happy for Mark! Wow! What a great opportunity! I had always wished that I could travel to Japan with my mother as my translator. Unfortunately by the time I could afford it she could no longer travel.

I wish I had snuck into Mark's suitcase!!

It's a GREAT opportunity for him - I'm so happy he's gotten the opportunity to go to Japan so often in these last few years! And even better that he's there with his sister - who speaks Japanese fluently and is a great translator. :)

I wish I had snuck into Mark's suitcase!!

Haha! Me too! :)

I hate being separated too... in 16 years I think we have spent 10 days apart. But this is your chance to live like a total slob, take 1 shower, and eat ice cream for breakfast!

Being separated is awful, but knowing that he's having fun makes me happy - just wish we didn't have to be so far apart.

But this is your chance to live like a total slob, take 1 shower, and eat ice cream for breakfast!

Bwahaha!! I totally LOVE this comment!!

Me too! I miss him a lot and he's been gone one day -- it'll be a long two weeks. Thankfully it'll be broken up by seeing all of you this weekend! :) I can't wait!! :D

It's so hard to be away from the husband. Joe and I haven't been apart all that much. Well, there were a couple times I was at my sister's house helping with her kids and a couple times I went places without him, but I hate sleeping alone and being alone in the house at night. Not because I am scared, although it's comforting to know he's here, but I miss him. :) I hope Mark has a fantastic trip - I remember the pictures from last year. :D I hope you enjoy your weekend trip too.

So relieved that you're done with that particularly unpleasant task at work.

I hope Mark has a wonderful time too - last time he gained 10 pounds in two weeks because he ate EVERYTHING there... I hope that he has fun, but maybe eating everything isn't such a good idea this time. ;)

Thank you SO MUCH for your good thoughts for my work situation - I'm just glad that it's over with!! Big HUGS to you!!

I hope he'll have a great time as well! :) I actually have an LA theatre trip coming up this weekend so it shouldn't be too bad. And then I'm taking my Mom to dinner and to our local Diamond Head Theatre to see "Flower Drum Song" the following weekend - so I think it'll be fine. :)

I wish I could've gone,... but I don't think my job could take being away for two weeks!

*Hugs*I wish I could do something to shorten the time for you until Mark is back again. I also wish that he will have a wonderful time in Japan.

I'm relieved that you are done with this work meeting and I hope that you will have a great time in LA! Big hugs and much love to you, Sheri!

Thanks so much, Sabine!! Actually, because I have an upcoming LA trip scheduled (and I'm going to see many dear friends at the shower) it probably won't be too bad. :) I will still really miss him these two weeks, though!

And SOOOO glad the work thing is over!! I was SOOOO stressed about it. Thanks so much for your good thoughts! Big HUGS and much love to you!!

I know it would be hard for me to be hubby-less. I'm glad Mark gets a chance to go to Japan with his family though. :) Now you can sing and dance around the house and not worry about it. Maybe that's what I do when I'm home alone! LOL :P

This weekend is going to be so much fun! :D I can't wait.

I'm sorry I never got around to commenting about your meeting. I was shocked when I read about it and was sending good thoughts and prayers. I'm glad it's done and you're ok! *HUGS*

I think it's so great that Mark has the opportunity to travel with his family!! I do miss him a lot, though! :( And I have been cleaning the house like a mad woman since he's been gone. :) I do my best cleaning when he's not home. :)

I can't wait to see you this weekend!! I'm SOOOO excited!!

And thanks so much for your good thoughts and prayers for the meeting. Thankfully it's over - I was very worried about it.

Love you!
