Oh I remember those days. But I only said something to her once, then got the look that said, "You try carrying a person inside you during the summer and see how good a mood you're in, buddy." I never said anything about it again.

I'll join you shortly! I may have to do without milk, though. I'm at the office, and we were expecting a new fridge to be delivered late yesterday, so everything in the old fridge was thrown out. But this morning, there's the empty old fridge, and no new fridge. Huh. But I'll have a mug of PG Tips anyway. I'll toss in a couple of "mini-moos" (creamers).

I hope you can get that chocolate that you need. I'm in the supermarket just about every day because I always forget something!

Good Friday morning, my Christmas friends!

Tonight is opening night for Elizabeth! She seemed a little nervous about it when I left for work this morning, but I'm sure she'll be wonderful. They're actually having an informal dance recital at 2:30 this afternoon to showcase what they learned during their week-long intensive dance camp. Then we have to be back at 5:00 to prepare for the 7:00 show. Busy, busy!

I plan to work till noon, then get ready for the festivities. I hope y'all have a great day!

How exciting!! Best of luck to your Elizabeth. I am sending her a virtual bouquet of flowers to celebrate her opening night! I am sure she will do you proud! I look forward to hearing how it went.
