« not enough cooking lately! | Main | back to the real world »


Friday I spent the day running -- dogs to the groomers, cat to the vet, errands, etc.  Then Friday night was a much needed crop at the scrapbook store with my favorite peeps!  We had a lot of fun & lots of laughs.

Saturday I woke up early, loaded the dogs in the car and headed for the Gorilla.  We plan on taking them up there for the 4th of July weekend and since they've NEVER seen another home other than our Harrisburg house AND they've never been on a car ride longer than 15 minutes, I figured we should make a trial run.

They did great on the car ride up!  I was thrilled.  Then we arrived at the house... the security company was there installing the alarm system and in the process was creating ear-piercing beeps.  For those that don't know, one of my dogs is horrified of "beeps."  She completely freaked out and tried to crawl under the laundry sink, nearly taking it out all together.  It's a sad sink to begin with and mixing it with Zoe was almost disasterous.

Both dogs calmed down after the alarm guys left and after David returned home with 2 crates for them.  They are crate-trained and felt safe in them. David went to dinner at a friends house while I stayed behind so the dogs wouldn't feel abandoned.

Sunday morning I left bright and early with the dogs and return to Harrisburg with just enough time to grab a shower and a snack before heading to the theater with my sis-in-law.  On the marquee, "Phantom of the Opera."  Now, let me preface this by saying I LOVE the theater. It amazes me how a live show is pulled off. But I have never had the desire to see the stage performance of "Phantom."  I was only going because the sis-in-law wanted to.

Let me just say that I won't need to see that a second time! There was way too much "opera" going on. I will say, however, that the staging and costumes were stunning.  To see (or not see) the set changes was really amazing.

After the theater we had dinner at McCormick & Schmicks.  It was tasty, but not my favorite. They specialize more in seafood & that's totally not my thing!

Guess that's all for now.  I'll keep you posted on what's cookin'...
