I finally stopped procrastinating...  
...and wrapped all my Christmas gifts. :) I know many of my co-workers will be on vacation on the 24th and so I wanted to give out all my gifts tomorrow and Tuesday. Unlike most people, I have a four day work week next week. :( Though we're only open until 1 pm on the 24th, we work the full 11 hr day on the 26th. :P Hopefully everyone will be at the mall instead of the bank that day! I'm going to be exhausted! :P

Some other things:

Wicked - I'm truly addicted to the CD... I've been sneaking it into the car when Mark & I have been going for long drives so he could fall in love with it like I have and I think it's working. ;) Idina's voice gives me goosebumps every DAMN time I hear her belt the endings of either "The Wizard and I" or "Defying Gravity." I really think she's Tony-worthy this year, but that's JHMO.

Nothing on Kevin's Graydon anywhere on the net. :( Only one post from someone who apparently got to go backstage and meet the cast including Kevin on the Official Millie forum. :(

Speaking of which, Mark & I finalized some of our NYC plans this weekend. We're seeing "Avenue Q" - Friday night, "Millie" - Sat matinee, "Wicked" - Saturday evening, "Millie" again - Sunday matinee, "Little Shop" - Sunday evening, and "Never Gonna Dance" - Monday evening. We want to try to fit as many shows as is humanly possible into that one weekend since we rarely travel together to NYC and we want to make it worth our while. :) Thank goodness for discount codes or we'd be going broke!

And lastly, I can't believe that one year ago I took the plunge and started this LJ - and really, my life hasn't been the same since! Since Mark has been sleeping most of the day and I was procrastinating wrapping my Christmas gifts, I went through a few of my old entries. I have to say, a lot has happened in a year... some great, some not so great but through everything, I just wanted to thank you all for being there for me. I couldn't have asked for a better group of friends on LJ. Big *HUGS* to all of you! :)

Thanks! :) I've been procrastinating for a while now, but I'm glad to be done. :) And I can't believe that it's already been a year since I've been on LJ! Time just goes by so fast! :)

Doesn't it feel good to have all the wrapping done? :)

Happy one year of LJ Sheri!!! I'm so grateful that I got to meet such a wonderful friend!!! *hugs*

It does, it feels GREAT! :)

Thanks so much, Carrie! And I'm so happy that I stumbled upon your journal when I did - if I hadn't, I would've missed the opportunity to get to know a really special friend! *HUGS*

Thank you Sheri. You are such a sweetie. :)

I'll bet you're glad to have all your Christmas shopping out of the way, I'm nowhere near finished - I wish my dad would stop changing his mind over what he wants!

A year on LJ, how great. When I started out I didn't know if I'd have the motivation to keep writing, but I think knowing a few people around here helps me keep on writing in my journal.

I actually am usually one of the people who are at the mall on Christmas Eve trying to get the last of my shopping done, so this year I feel pretty relieved about it. ;)

When I started this journal, I didn't know if I'd have the motivation to keep it up either. I think the one thing that kept me writing in here, though was the wonderful people I met through this journal! :)

That is so neat that it's your one year LJ anniversary! It feels like I've been on here forever, but only since early April of this year!
Sherishutterbug93 on December 22nd, 2003 08:36 pm (UTC)
Thanks Amanda! :) The funny thing is that I feel like it was just yesterday that I started it. I hadn't realized that you only started your journal in April. :) And I guess I have Barb to thank for finding your journal when I did! :) Thanks for being such a great friend to us this year!

You've to work on the 26th.? Here nearly everything (out of some restaurants or discotheques) will be closed from 24th., 1:00 pm, until 27th. Hope you will not have so much to do at work! And, 11 hours/day is that a normal day? Here work is only 8 hours/day.

One year on LJ - congratulations. :) And also almost one year that I've met you for the first time. I'm very glad about that. You've been a great friend through this time. Thank you, Sheri.

Unfortunately I do have to work on the 26th. :( And our Fridays are usually 11 hr days. :P I'm going to be SO exhausted!

Thanks so much Sabine! And it has been almost a year since I met you. :) Thanks so much for replying to my post in the Sheltie forum - it was you, after all, who gave me back my Christmas spirit last year. :) Thanks for being such a wonderful friend this year.

Big *HUGS* to you and Lauser!
