I HATE tax season! :P  
If I'm able to make it to the 15th without going completely insane (or without wanting to rip the eyebrows off a few of our reps) I'll have considered this tax season a success. :P We're currently in three of the busiest days for IRA deposits of the year (which means TONS of trades and paperwork, but hardly any fee to show for it) - and my co-worker and counterpart to my former job decided to take his vacation now. :P So I've had to do his job as well as my own these past few days while he's living it up at the Clay Aiken concert.

It's funny, but he refuses to admit to anyone that the concert was his reason for the trip. He told everyone that he's visiting his brother in Seattle and since he just happens to be there that weekend, he's going to see the Clay concert. Okay... Similar, I guess, to me being in NYC and just happening to get there just as Kevin got his role in "Millie". ;) Right now I think he's just in fandom denial ;) - I was that way for a while, but I stopped making excuses for my trips years ago. ;)

Had dinner last night with my friend Susan - who I haven't really talked with since Christmas. We discussed her upcoming wedding and made plans to look for dresses next weekend. :) I know she's been really pre-occupied with her new house being built and hasn't really had time to think about her wedding recently - but even still, she doesn't seem as excited as I thought she'd be... In fact, at times I think I'm more excited than she is about it. :P

Mark, Sydney, and I are going to go to the in-laws house on Easter Sunday for brunch. It'll be nice to see them since we really haven't seen them since the New Year. They're more excited about seeing Sydney, however. ;) It's sort of like, "It's nice that you guys can come - you ARE bringing Sydney, aren't you??" :D It's really sweet that Sydney's won over their hearts. :)

Aside from that, Mark & I are taking it easy this weekend. I've been so drained after work lately that I've been falling asleep before 9pm (which is why I haven't updated in days...) :P I'll probably just putter around with my websites this weekend, read some of my Series 24 book, and watch the John Tartaglia video over and over again. ;) *SIGH* I adore him! :)

I'm sorry you have to deal w/tax season.

I hope you, Mark, Sydney, your mom, and your in-laws have a wonderful Easter. :) *hugs*

Thanks Carrie - the good news is that it's almost over! :)

Hope you and your family have a nice Easter too! :)

Hope you have a nice brunch, and a relaxful weekend.

Thank you Laura! :) I think this weekend will be a "catch up on my sleep" and "be with family weekend". :) I think I really needed a weekend like this. :)

Hope you and Tommy (and Brock) have a nice Easter! :)

Same to you, Mark, and Sydney.

I hope that the next few days for you at work go quickly!

Have a wonderful Easter.

Hopefully they will! :) Thankfully tax season only comes around once a year! :)

Hope you, Tom, and Cameron have a beautiful Easter as well! *HUGS*

He told everyone that he's visiting his brother in Seattle and since he just happens to be there that weekend, he's going to see the Clay concert.
How old is this employee?? Does Clay have a big male adult following? Hee hee... is he a "Claymate?"

but even still, she doesn't seem as excited as I thought she'd be... In fact, at times I think I'm more excited than she is about it.
I know this feeling... when my friend was pregnant, I was more excited for her than she was. She acted all pissed off that she was and they had been trying for a while.

"It's nice that you guys can come - you ARE bringing Sydney, aren't you??"
I hear it is like that when you have kids also. My aunt is like that, I invited her to Joe's birthday dinner and she immediately asked me, "Are Rachel and the kids going to come?" And I told her that I didn't know since she hasn't RSVP'd yet... and well, the day will not be about the kids anyway, it is about Joe. But that is not the point... my aunt is totally like that, "Nice of you to come... but SO HAPPY to see the kids." Ha ha! She's badgering me about having a baby. Yeesh!

Haha! "Claymate" - I'm going to have to call him that now! :D He's younger than I am - I think he's 24 or 25, but he's a HUGE Clay Aiken fan. I was surprised when I found out, actually.

I think all of my relatives have given up asking us when we were going to have children. They always used to ask us - but after five years of marriage, I think they're just happy that we bring the dog around and have started calling her their granddog. :)

I hope people stop asking me when I will have a baby. Actually, it is mainly my aunt who asks and tells me how nice it will be when Joe and I have a baby... but she tells me this all the time. No pressure, of course. ha ha!

How cute, "graddog".. hee hee!

Hehehe my mom calls Brock her grandpuppy. LOL.

Grandpuppy :) That's adorable! :)

It's good to hear from you. :) I'm sorry that you had so much to do at work and I hope you will have enough time to relax during the weekend. Do you have to work on Monday? Wish you a nice brunch. :) *Hugs*
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on April 10th, 2004 02:50 pm (UTC)
Thanks Sabine! And yes, I have to work on Monday. :( But hopefully this weekend will be relaxing enough where I won't mind going back to work so much. :) I hope you and Lauser have a nice Easter too! :) *HUGS*
