Spring Break Week

It has been a crazy week. Mikes dad and stepmom were here from Sunday until Wednesday morning. They were going to go to the coast with us to celebrate Danielle's Birthday, but decided to head to Seattle instead. The weather report said it was awful over the pass. We even thought about not going. But, we decided to go anyway, and the road was fine. Snow on the ground, but the road was fine.

It kinda started as a crazy morning. I went to the lab to do bloodwork. Checking in on the cholesterol and glucose levels. Cholesterol is quite good. Glucose not as much. So I already did follow up work on that, and should know something next week.

Then I ran to "Cupcake Jones" http://www.cupcakejones.net/ to pick up dessert for Danielle's birthday. I got a dozen of the most wonderful gourmet cupcakes! They were AMAZING! I got 2 each of 6 different types. I guess that is their normal dozen makeup. My two favorites were "Downtown Cupcake Brown" and the "Spring Lemon," both of which are made everyday. OMG yum! Just amazing. I have hinted for cupcakes for my birthday next week. OK, asked actually. But I don't know if I will get them or not.


After I got home with the cupcakes the Donovan's packed up their RV, said goodbye, and headed up to Seattle. As we were getting ready to leave Alec came running downstairs with Harvey (the bunny). He was paniced that something was wrong. Clearly there was something wrong. I wasn't going to spend $300 on the rabbit, but I did some research on the Internet to see how to help. Alec seemed to think he was feeling better so we went to the coast. Unfortunately, when we got home on Thursday (OK Mike came home first) Harvey had passed on. Very sad. Mike took him to the vet to be taken care of... They not only sent a plant, but also made a donation in his memory. I am quite pleased with this vet. RIP Harvey. We will see you on the other side of the rainbow bridge.



Thursday night brought Cirque Du Soleil. This was my birthday present. I went with my girlfriends Janelle and Danielle. Janelle's birthday was a few days before Danielle's... and in case you need to know when to send a card, ine is next Thursday (4/3) and I will be 43. LOL

First we went to dinner at The Melting Pot. Have you been? I love it! It is fun and different. We started with swiss cheese fondue. Then went to the cooking of chicken, fillet minion, lobster & shrimp! Lastly it was on to the chocolate fondue... bananas foster. It was a white chocolate fondue. YUM. Danielle didn't care for her dinner, which was a big bummer. But, Janelle and I loved ours!

Then, it was onto Cirque Du Soleil. This year it is "Corteo."




Corteo, which means "cortege (funeral procession)" in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.The clown pictures his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by quietly caring angels. Juxtaposing the large with the small, the ridiculous with the tragic and the magic of perfection with the charm of imperfection, the show highlights the strength and fragility of the clown, as well as his wisdom and kindness, to illustrate the portion of humanity that is within each of us. The music, by turns lyrical and playful, carries Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

I really enjoyed it very much. I love doing new things, and this was it! My favorite was the little person under the helium balloon. She got bounced around the whole darn place. It was just cool!

I would say I would love to go again, but I know there are many other shows I would love to see!

The weekend brought more things to do than fun to be had! LOL I did work on cleaning up my mess today. It hasn't been a clean SB room since my Heirloom Show, and it needs to happen. So, slowly inventorying my make and takes and such! Hope I will get to play again SOON!
