Howdy, all. Ugh, it's Monday again.<br><br>
Yesterday was a beautiful day. I should've taken Jillian out in the jogging stroller, but I didn't get around to it. The three of us spent the afternoon going around to open houses. I guess we're getting serious about selling the apartment and buying a house. The first house we looked at seems perfect to us. It's at the high end of the price range we've talked about, but at least it's not <b>out</b> of the price range. It's still freakin' expensive. (Frickin' New Jersey). We'll see if anything comes of this...<br><br>
Well, it's back to work again. Ugh...

Good luck Bob! I love house hunting.<br><br>
Warning: rant ahead<br><br>
I'm looking at a stretch of 10?11? days/nights without a break...I'm already exhausted and worn out and achy and just OVER the show at the moment. I think I need to talk to the producer...I can't get anything done at rehearsal because the director has put me into every freakin' transition in the first act and what time I have in the second is minimal anyway. Gah! We have a MONTH to get all the costuming done and I haven't even put a stitch of clothing on a couple of cast members, still have to make the 10 B'way Ballet dresses (bought the fabric yesterday and it is FAB!), have to get the materials for the 2 dancing girls costumes to match the rentals, need to make the 9 capelets for the Beautiful girls costumes, 4 pairs of knickers for the studio workers, etc etc etc...plus make sure the leads are all dressed. I need like 3 days off work to get this done and I can't really take the time off right now. NOT.GOOD.AT.ALL. F&ck. Never again.<br><br>
/end rant.<br><br>
Gotta get going. I will post a pic of my view from my new office tonight.<br><br>
Have a good one.<br><br>

<b>Maureen</b> that's a ton of work you got going on there! I can see why you'd need a break! Sounds like you also need a team of seamstresses or something! I would so LOVE to see the end result of this...it sounds very cool.

<b>Maureen</b> Your rant made me smile and made me think you must be a super talented person to juggle all of that. But ya know, sometimes it's ok to drop a ball and take a break. Take care of yourself!<br><br><b>boB</b> Good luck with the house hunting.<br><br>
Three quiet little men in my care this morning. All tiny with fat little bellies sleeping peacefully. It's a beautiful almost over day!<br><br>
We were talking about baby names the other night and pulled out the baby name book. Not the normal baby name book, the one the nurses here have added to over the years. This is the what not to name your baby book. We enjoy the twins names. One set, not that unusual. Mom and dad liked Texas, so we have Houston and Dallas. But then there's the mom that named her babies after what she craved while she was pregnant with them. Lemonjello and orangejello. So this brought up the conversation of what did you crave and what would your kids craving name be? Mine would be chicken and cheese roll-ups. Can you imagine? You're so cute, yes you are little chicken cheese rollup! This one I'm just gonna spell how they pronounce it...Shi-thead. Now, come on, what were they high on?<br><br>
Here's my favorite comment of the weekend. Someone asked where we kept the extra plastic forks. Another person pointed up to a bag on a shelf. Then a girl behind me says... "Oh, that's where they are. I wish I would have known last night, I used two tongue depressors to eat my salad with." Only in a hospital. All I could think was ack, ack, ack!<br><br>
Happy Monday morning all!

Hey all.<br><br>
I survived the Bon Jovi concert. <b>Tim</b> - all I could think about was the f-ing dog! But it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Daughty - the guy from American Idol opened the show - he was bad.<br><br>
Well that's it for Monday. More class tonight. Ugh.

I guess I'm just old. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> They sounded like a punk rock band. Just screaming.

<b>(((Moe)))</b> - what <b>Tiff</b> said. Sending you my "who needs free time when I gots things to do" mojo!<br><br><b>Tiff</b> - when I did customer service many years ago, my favorite child's name I ever heard was Dijonnaise.<br><br>
I should get some monster type stuffed animals, name them after my cravings sans pregnancy (nachos, mac-n-chee, fettucine alfredo) and line them up on my kitchen counters. Wonder if that would help?<br><br><b>Bob</b> - yay for house hunting!<br><br>
Have a good day all!

<b>Bob</b>...House hunting....fun stuff. My SIL lived in Red Haven / Fair Haven (cannot recall which). I nearly fell to the floor when I heard home much they sold their 3 bed, 1 3/4 bath, cape cod for! Wow!!! It was a really small house (no eat in kitchen, 2nd floor bedrooms cut up by dormers, slanted walls/ceilings, etc).<br><br>
Nothing much new here....busy weekend gone and busy week just begun!<br><br><b>Moe</b>...It's ok to say, 'no'....take a few breathers this week!

I am not having fun this week, nor did I over the weekend. I am having big, huge, horrific panic attacks.<br><br>
I almost called in sick to work but I always know that that is the worst thing I could possibly do when I am in that state. I am hoping to schedule a run in for later, as that would help, but work is up my butt right now and I have a dentist appointment later. But I WILL be having cake, because it's DH's birthday, so I should probably move my gigunda bum a little.

Morning all! Cooked up a delicious meal for family dinner yesterday. Crockpot Asian style ribs (Voo has made these too!), peanut sobu noodles and steamed broccoli. YUM!!! Dessert was prepared by J's SIL - cake (!!!) and ice cream.<br><br><b>boB</b> - you need to pick 3 potential homes and stage it like House Hunters, only then will I be able to tell you exactly which place you should choose. hee hee<br><br>
Uh, what was the trip to NYC -- chopped liver? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><span style="font-size:small;"><b>Diane</b> - Cake and icing (always plenty of icing) cures all ...enjoy and feel better!</span>

Thanks for that reminder. I need it today, too.<br><br>
(((<b>Maureen</b>)))<br><br>
(((<b>Diane</b>)))<br><br>
(((<b>Colleen C</b>))) (I skimmed through the other thread quickly and saw that she needs a hug too.)<br><br>
I am sick and injured and miserable.
<ul><li>Sick - I caught my first cold of the winter this weekend. Let me tell you... a fitness conference is NO FUN when you're dripping snot all over the place and sneezing/coughing every 4 minutes.</li>
<li>Injured - I torqued my left knee on the first day of the conference and could barely walk, much less do hours and hours of step aerobics, boot camp, 8,000 lunges, Spinning, etc.</li>
<li>Miserable - see above for details.</li>
</ul>
Total bummer. I wait all year for that stinking conference, and I didn't even get to enjoy it the way I should have. Bleh.<br><br>
Plus I've decided that I really need a new career. Not just a new job, which I got 9 months ago. A whole new career. I'm burned out, unmotivated, disinterested, and generally unhappy.<br><br>
The problem isn't that I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I know. I know exactly what I want to do... what I'm <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><i>meant</i></span> to do. The problem is that I won't be able to pay my bills. So I'm stuck. Refer back to bullet #3 above... miserable. Just miserable.
