Fantastic, congratulations! Break a leg!
@NC Belle - How's the "new" fur baby doing?
Thank you. I am going to need it. My husband and the older 2 boys are coming. Super nervous!
You'll nail it, I'm sure. And you know what? Most important you have FUN!!
I know I will. Just praying my middle son doesn't yell out, "Hi mom!" when I get on stage. In my last show my sister in law WAVED at me! What is worse is I ALMOST waved back, but didn't!
OH - that would be PRECIOUS if he did that! If I was in the audience, I'd LOVE something like that. I remember seeing a little boy, YEARS ago, at a ballet school recital, who stood in the front, and waved and "mugged it up" with his family the entire time on stage! Priceless, and I've obviously never forgotten it!!
Oreo is doing great. She is turning 1 this week (est birth date is 11/11). The past week and half...she developed a liking to sit next to us on the loveseat and occasionally sneak onto the bed. She had some vet adventures Saturday and a couple of weeks before (some of her booster required a second booster 3 weeks apart). Last month, dh went with her to get booster shots, they took her in the back...they take off collar and harness. Well, when he took her outside to do her potty break before going home...she wiggled herself out her collar setup and ran back into Petsmart and did some window shopping before going to the check in counter. He had found her with her paws up on the high counter (employees were in the back).
Well, her appointment Saturday was a drop-off one since that is was available at this busy vet office. There was apparently another dog with the same name, but that other dog's owner went to the vet side instead of the groomers and asked for Oreo. Well, thankfully he told them right away that our Oreo was not his dog and discovered the error. The staff did not alert us to this security issue until we paid for her booster shot. We did not make a big deal of this yet...but, may talk to the head of the vet office Monday about it. Our girl seems okay, and we think she did not hear them tell the other guy..here's your dog. We are Oreo's second adoptive family and she finally feels that its safe to call us her pack. The poor pup has been feeling a bit off tonight. She had me snuggle with her a couple of hours this early morning before she decide to go back to the bedroom crate. We did some Star Trek Voyager episodes and you-tube (Disney related).
My Dad used to make faces at my sister when started to play the clarinet/concerts. I don't know he did that when I was on stage for various shows/concerts. I was too focus on what I was doing (clarinet...only 3 years of that, singing,acting, drill team).
Learn symptoms of stroke...it can make a difference.
MIL had a mini-stroke this week shortly after her latest overseas European adventure. Last weekend, she was feeling off thinking it was just jet-lag...called on 10/28 for my birthday...she was in her pjs still at 5pm doing housework...very unusual for her. I told her if still feels off or get other symptoms to seek help asap. Nothing until Wed....we called her for another matter...she sounded tired and says that was in for tests. She was treated and in the hospital for a couple days and only thing that is bothersome to her is weakness in her arm. Saturday...she is out and decided to go to a party with another friend to celebrate someone's big 100th birthday. This woman does bounce back fast---however no driving allowed for awhile and has to get some pt. 20 years ago...she went on a week holiday to San Francisco after having her gall bladder out.
@NC Belle - Glad to hear that your cutie Oreo seems to be doing relatively well - she DEFINITELY is well-loved! LOL @ the story of her at PetSmart - hey - at least she was polite enough to try and check out/pay for stuff! Please give her a hug/kiss from me!
Sorry to hear about our MIL, hope she continues to improve.
@superme80 - hope the show went great, and break a leg for any other performances!
@NC Belle - congrats on the year with the pup. Sounds like she's doing great. Glad your mother-in-law's was mild, considering, and that she's bouncing back fast! Those are definitely scary. Thank you for the PSA!
I've been eyeing this shirt for quite some time (or anything else with my fave purple buddy, but especially liked this,, very Pop Century!). Finally could not resist the 25% off until 11/12 (Sun.) sale on Shop Disney Parks. https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/store/product/epcot-center-figment-peek-a-boo-tee/18667/
@safetymom - I'm squarely placing the blame on you, and hoping to wear this when I (someday, hopefully) get to meet and hug you. Also - may I join your Figment Support Group? Oh - and - neither of us will tell Katie, right?
We only had Oreo since late July--officially adopted in August. We first saw her puppy pictures in January, but we were not ready for a new pet. She was adopted by a family as a way to get a 16 year old girl to be more responsible....they returned Oreo to the foster mom in late May/early June. We were open to a new pet by then, so after meeting her and going through an approval process...she eventually became ours quickly after a short trial period to make sure she would be a great fit. She had some health issues which may had been from various medicines/vaccines reacions and stress from changing homes.
Oreo has been a pretty happy puppy lately. She is finally comfortable in knowing that she will still be ours even after tearing up papers/old clothes. She has been more cuddling lately (maybe the fact that we turned off the ceiling fans helped). She is starting to learn to listen to more commands and obey them faster. She loves going out just before sunrise when all the roosters in a mile radius (it seems like that) start to crow. Oreo is starting to pay attention to tv shows and loves it when we have relaxation music with ocean waves playing (helps dh to get into rem sleep in the daytime).
Dh is getting double time Thanksgiving, so I will prep most of the meal ahead of time. I got some asparagus which he barely likes for my green veg choice (roasting or air fry cook it this week and freeze), sweet potatoes (throwing those in the air fryer ahead of time and reheat), green bean casserole if he makes it (his fmily's recipe), cornbread dressing with sausage (made with Jimmy Dean sausage , onion, chicken broth, various seasonings), main event (not bought turkey yet), and maybe fresh gravy depending on drippings/broth potential. I may do canned cranberry sauce...done fresh in the past. Mrs. Smith may do our dessert pie choice or whatever is on sale in the freezer aisle or at the bakery. We have limited space in the fridge.
We are getting rid of a lot of old stuff and hope to put our house on the market soon. The houses on our street go fast lately. We hope to be closer to town (or new city area) soon. Oreo would like to be near the beach or trails (loves walks and people/nature watching).
My mouth is watering!
I'm so glad Oreo came to live with you. I can tell you belong to each other just from your description.
Wondering how many others are considering/definitely planning to see Coco? As ticket prices (and refreshments) rise, I've been much for selective over the years in planning what I want to see (used to see all things Disney).
For the longest time, I thought I had no interest in this movie, but as I see more and more trailers, hear more about, I find myself becoming more and more interested.
I imagine we'll be seeing it, but I'll probably catch it early on a Sunday when the tickets at my closest theater are $5. That's as much out of convenience as anything else.
“Coco” is great. So great.
On the other hand, the “Frozen” short that plays beforehand is TERRIBLE.
Thinking of seeing CoCo next week. As I posted above, I originally had no interest in seeing this. But the more trailers/commercials I see for it, the more intrigued I am, and glad to hear you recommend. Frozen - NEVER!! It's like Duffy to me......hmmm......maybe Do Ya Wanna Freeze a Duffy??
Hopefully taking the older 2 tomorrow. If not, sometime next week.
I saw it today. I loved the short and actually think it could be fleshed out into a movie on its own. The music is heartwarming too. Olaf’s character had more substance in the short and adults were laughing left and right at his jokes in the theater. Great storyline about holiday traditions and family.
I like Coco a lot but thought it was a little slow at points. Still enjoyed it quite a bit.
