Home from Costco...  
...with a gigantic box of Cheez-it's that we'll probably never finish. :P It's been a while since we've gone on a Costco spree since Mark's corporate membership ran out a while back and his company had to have it reinstated. Buying in bulk is nice, but sometimes for just two people, it can be a little ridiculous...

We briefly looked at ACs while we were there - but it apparently wasn't one of our more immediate needs (just wait until the summer months - we'll be back there looking for one again!) ;P

And we still haven't filed our taxes yet! :P We must be one of last people each year to get it done. Mark does it electronically and usually will wait until April 14th each year to start it. :P I don't think we'll be getting a refund this year, in fact, with all the mutual fund redemptions I did this past year, we may end up having to pay. :P

Finalized my trip plans for NYC in July - I'll be taking my Mom there for her birthday this year. :) Got rid of my May plans altogether. :( Broadway Barks is on the 10th of July (ironically my Mom's birthday) and it's one event I've always wanted to go to. :) I asked Kevin if he was going to participate in it. Being the animal lover that he is, he thought it was a wonderful cause. :) Hopefully he'll be able to participate. :)

I know this sounds silly, but I have an awful feeling that "Millie" may close before I go back to NYC in July. :( Capacity has been about 84% recently - it hasn't been at the bottom, but it's been close. :( I'm hoping it'll stay open, at least through the end of this year... Also, Kevin's contact is up on September 12th - I hope, for his sake, that it doesn't close before then. :(

And I've been feeling really down about my exam... I've been studying for hours on end and when I've taken the practice exams, I've been doing horribly. :( My exam is next week Monday and I sometimes don't feel any closer to being ready to take it than I was a few weeks ago. :P Oh well, that probably means that I'd better get back to studying...

Awe, sorry to hear you cancelled your May plans. =( But glad you are getting to go in July! Yay!

I am sure you will do fine on your exam. You have put in a lot of studying. I always get test anxiety.

Yeah, May just wasn't in cards for me this time. :( Hopefully July will be a good trip. :) I like to travel with my Mom so that should be fun. I just hope that "Millie" is still around, my Mom hasn't seen Kevin as Trevor yet... in fact, she's never even seen "Millie" yet! :)

I'm sure it's a lot of test anxiety. But boy, there's SO much information to remember... I think I'll be glad when it's over. :P Thanks so much for your comments. :)

It's probably just your nerves is why you aren't doing as well on the practice tests. I'm sure you'll do just fine. :)

Thanks so much for your encouraging words, Laura. :) Hopefully it's just test nerves and I'll be okay on Monday. :) Hope you're feeling better this morning.

I'm sorry to hear that you had to cancel your May plans and I hope that you still can visit "Millie" in July.

Mostly, I felt terrible when I had to take any kind of test or something like that but the few time, when I thought I had done enough and was not so nervous I always got a bad result. Soon, the time will be over and you can take the exam. Do you will know the result already at the same day? *Hugs*

I hope "Millie" is still open in July too! I'd really like for my Mom to see Kevin in it - she hasn't seen too many Broadway shows, and she really likes Kevin so it would be great for her to see him in it. :)

I do find out the results on the same day... It's computerized so as soon as it's done it tabulates the score right in front of you and tells you instantly if you passed or failed. I guess that's good in a way and I don't have to wait for the results, but it's always so nerve-wrecking to push that button. :P Thanks for your comments, Sabine. :) As always, you make me feel so much better. :) *HUGS*

How wonderful of you to take your Mom to NYC for her birthday! I'm sure that you guys will have a blast.
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on March 29th, 2004 08:07 am (UTC)
My Mom and I have only been to NYC once together (and that was four years ago!) and she loves theatre too so I'm hoping she'll have a nice time. :)
BOOM! goes the dynamite!mslauren2930 on March 29th, 2004 12:57 pm (UTC)
you'll be here in July? yay! I'm gonna come see "Millie" with y'all, if you don't mind. :) I haven't yet seen it, and it must be worth seeing if you've seen it as many times as you have.
Sheri: Kevin - as Trevor Graydonshutterbug93 on March 29th, 2004 07:54 pm (UTC)
Yay! I'd love to see you again! :) And I LOVE "Millie" - though I may be just a tad bit biased. ;) Hopefully it'll still be playing then. :) And if "Assasins" would just extend until then I'd be in heaven. *SIGH*
