Brunch was wonderful...  
...but the nicest part was getting to spend time with our family. The in laws are doing well - my mother-in-law is doing much better since her series of radiation treatments have ended. It appears that chemotherapy is not in the future for her which is wonderful. She seems to be doing fine and is her normal chatty self, chasing the dog around the house, and calling Sydney a "him". :)

Of course, like with all our family gatherings, we left feeling as if we could go without eating for the next few days - we were that stuffed! Between the rice and potatoes, apple pie, and ice cream - it's pretty clear no one in our family is on a lo-carb diet! ;) I hesitate to go to Curves tomorrow since I'm pretty sure we weren't the only ones who over-ate and it'll probably be REALLY busy there. :P

In Kevin news - I'm pretty sad that I'll be missing the BC/EFA Easter Bonnet Competition on the 19th & 20th of this month. :( Kevin's heading up this year's Easter Bonnet show for "Millie" and it would be so nice to be able to see it. :) I guess I'll just have to be content seeing photos, reviews, and hopefully a Broadway Beat segment. ;) *SIGH*

And Nick's "1776" ends it's run next week at Riverside. It's been getting such raves (which I can hardly say I'm surprised at, since the cast and creative team are so stellar). Mark & I want to try to make it out to LA in November for our anniversary - hopefully Nick will have a show that'll be running somewhere in the area. :)

Oh well, tomorrow is the worst IRA day of the year for us,... please think good thoughts for me in the "trying not to rip the eyebrows off a few of our reps" department... I came rather close to it on Friday. :P

Hope you all have a nice start to the week. :)

I'm glad that you had a wonderful time with your family. :) And it's very good to hear that your mother-in-law is doing much better. I wish her only the best.

I hope you also have a nice start to the week. Please, take care Sheri. *Hugs*

Thanks Sabine. :) We're very thankful that she's doing well. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers for her last year. :) Hope you and Lauser have a great week. *HUGS*

I'm glad you had a nice day. :) I think eating so much and getting stuffed was the norm today hehe. :)

Good luck tomorrow. Try to relax.

I think it was the norm too. Holidays and healthy eating don't really go together do they? ;)

Thanks for the nice wishes for today - my co-worker comes back tommorrow so if I can make it through the day today (without any eyebrow ripping) I'll be thrilled. ;)

mmm...I miss family get togethers and all the food that goes along with it! Lucky you got to spend the Sunday with family and food :D

Good luck tomorrow...don't forget to breathe! :0

It was nice to be around the family (not to mention all that food!) :) For us it just doesn't seem complete without the two. :)

Thanks for your good thoughts for today. :) I just keep telling myself that IRA season is almost over! ;)

Yes, I will be thinking good thoughts for you all day! I will be hoping that you keep those eyebrow riping hands to yourself. Of course, I will probably be lounging around all day, don't to rub anything in..lol..of course on payday, I don't collect a pay check either :(.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on April 12th, 2004 08:50 am (UTC)
Haha! Thanks Barb! I will certainly think about your happy thoughts when the urge to rip eyebrows comes to my mind today. ;) Hope you had a nice Easter! :) *HUGS*

I'm glad that you had such a good holiday. I was wondering how your mother in law was getting along - I'm really glad that she dosn't have to do chemo.
Sheri: Sydney - puppyshutterbug93 on April 12th, 2004 08:52 am (UTC)
We feel so fortunate that she doesn't have to undergo chemo either. Thanks for all your support and prayers for her last year when she ill. *HUGS*

Belated Easter Wishes...
I'm very glad to hear about your mother's renewed spirit...I hope it continues.

And thank heavens one of us had a good Easter brunch because, honestly, my aunt cannot cook anything without giving the rest of us severe indigestion. Thankfully, my mother cooked Easter dinner Saturday night, and I stuffed myself then.

And the coda to all of this is:
DIET starts today!!!!

P.S. Sheri, are you going to try to come out here for "Company" at Reprise! since Christopher Sieber is in it?

Re: Belated Easter Wishes...
Thanks Marina! :) My mother in law is a feisty one! ;)

And can I just say AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! about not being able to see my beloved Christopher Sieber in "Company"? :( I'm just so darn attracted to that man! ;) Are you planning on going? If you do may I live vicariously through you? ;)

So glad that you had a wonderful Easter Marina! :) And my diet starts... as soon as all the leftovers are done. :)

That's so nice you got to spend time with your family. It is also good news about your mother in-law. :) I have had my taxes done since early March, so why can't people follow that pattern and make it easier for those who wish to rip eyebrows out. LOL. Try to have a good day!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on April 12th, 2004 11:14 pm (UTC)
I can't understand why people wait until the last minute to open up IRAs either. ;) And it certainly makes my eyebrow ripping urge stronger when people wait until the last minute. ;) Heehee! Thanks for the good thoughts for today! :) Hope you had a nice day too! :)
