What a Week!!!!!!! Getting Ready for Travel!!!! OFF TO HAWAII

Well this week has been just a little bit hectic as I am working on several work related demos which require a lot of my time. However, I have had some time to relax which included another trip to New York City. Last Saturday Mark and I drove up to New York City for the day. We did a little bit of showing (I bought new Louis Vuitton shoes......nice), had dinner and saw two Broadway shows. We went to see "Next to Normal" and "Hair". Next to Normal is a new musical that opened this year. I personally think this show had a lot of punch. We liked the show and the music so much that we are going back July 25 to see it again. The show won three Tony awards this year. We also saw Hair which I have seen several times before (in the past years) but since I grew up with that show and saw it for the first time when I was 19, I had to see it again. I still like it and probably will see it again especially if they take it on tour and it stops in DC.

The rest of the week has been all work related until today (Thursday). I have to start packing my bags because I am off to Hawaii. I love Hawaii and have been there about 8 times. I try to go at least every other year. I am really looking forward to this trip as I just want to relax a little. You know, get away from all the hustle and bustle of work. So what will be do in Hawaii? Eat, Shop and RELAX! When I return, I will need to get back on a healthy eating plan and lose some of the weight I have put on recently especially during the past year. All the stress from selling a house and building a new one was a little much as I guess I put my weight aside and just ate..................hmmmmm. Not a good thing. But I will get back on track when I return.

Talk about returning. When we get back, we will only have a short couple of weeks until time to go to HOOT. We are registered for HOOT and have even signed up for a couple classes. This will be my first time at HOOT so I do not know what to expect but I am going with a really open mind and really looking to have a great time.

Well I have to get off this computer and continue with my packing. I hope everyone has a great July 4th. Happy painting.
