Yes, it is only the middle of March and we are making our plans for the summer. And before. We have spent a TON of money this week, with nothing tangible to show for it. Let me back up a bit before going into all that.
Saturday we went to my company's annual party. We were all dressed up really nice. And the dress I wore looked pretty good actually. We had our pictures taken, I can't wait to see them. The kids both had their caricatures done. And we ate really good food. All the employees got $50 gift checks and I got a 5 Year Plaque. Plus, we won the centerpiece that was on our table. It is always fun to see my co-workers outside of the office, especially the other women who work in our Colorado Springs office. The kids have a blast walking around and talking to everyone. They are always on their best behavior and I get many compliments on them. I NEVER get tired of that!
We went grocery shopping Sunday morning and then picked up Chinese food and headed over to my parents house. Asia is the same, which is good for now. There is really nothing that can be done, so it's just a wait and see until she is obviously suffering. We're sad. Mom and I sat down with the calendar to set some tentative dates for this summers California trip. More on that later. And she agreed to keep the kids for us on Saturday night so we can go out to celebrate Shell's birthday. Yay!
So what did we spend so much money on?? Well, I booked Shell's flight to Las Vegas next month. She is going out to see her mom and help her find a place to live in Orange County. And to see her nieces and nephews and her niece's baby. She is very excited, and I kind of am too. She will be gone for 4 1/2 days, and although I will miss her a lot, I hope to get some things accomplished to surprise her. We'll see.
Money also spent on... Margaret Cho tickets!!! We are going to see her on May 3, which is our wedding anniversary. And even more exciting... we bought our True Colors show tickets!. Coming to Red Rocks this year with the True Colors tour is Cyndi Lauper, B-52's, Carson Kressley, Joan Armatrading, Nona Hendryx and ROSIE O'DONNELL. I'm just a little excited, can you tell? So that will be July 5, which is 2 weeks after PrideFest. I can't wait!
