Sunday Salon


Family and Life:
This week was a bit crazy: my mom was out of the country visiting my brother and his family so I was on extra dog-duty (and dog-doodie, if you know what I mean); my daughter had the flu; I had a strange work schedule; dance/rehearsals didn't stop; and I had book group. I love getting together with my book groups! All women, a variety of ages, wonderful people, great conversations, oh and some book talk. :-) 

I also signed up to be the chaperone backstage at the Wizard of Oz show that my daughter is in on Feb 21st. So instead of paying $70 for a ticket to watch the show, I'll be hanging out backstage (where they promise I can see the show for free)

Work:
Work this week was good, but I worked only a half day Monday (due to daughter's flu), not on Wednesday (my usual day off this year) and then Friday was a holiday. Kinda' crazy!

Books and Reading:
I've got two give aways going on right now, both of which are international:
  • Today is the last day to enter for a chance to win a copy of Anjali Banerjee's Haunting Jasmine, check out the review and/or the interview and give away.

    Looks like the bug called 'busy week' is going around. I was swamped! I just had a moment to peek up to write my Friday post and got pulled back under. I hope you have a better week ahead! Also, hope your daughter's feeling better!

    Aths--My daughter is definitely better (whew!), thank you for the well-wishes. Our busy weeks will last us through the start of March when 2 of her shows will be over

    I love theater and wish your daughter all the best on her upcoming performance. That's great you can work behind the scene too.

    Aloha from Rob

    Rob--the theater is turning out to be very fun. I hope she enjoys it on the night of the show when she has the fancy mic taped to her face!
