It's Heeeeere!

Last night was the first night of "HSM: The Ice Tour." The first half appears to be HSM and the second HSM 2. I think it went well. The guests seemed to enjoy the show and the little I got to see last night looks pretty good. Tonight I am at the dressing rooms so it will be Friday at the earliest that I might get to see the show.

During the run I have a couple kids from church coming to see it. One of them can come hunt me down, but I am not working the second shift Saturday so I'll miss seeing "V." If I could work a double...

I was at our south info booth last night and I found myself humming the songs or singing under my breath. I have only seen the first movie ONCE. I think it may be because I also heard the pep rally thing at DCA for days in a row, would catch stuff on the Disney Channel as I was changing channels, etc. Let's face's all over the place! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

One Year Ago Today...

I cannot believe it has been a year since Amy died. I will never forget coming home and seeing an email with her name in the subject line. I knew what it was as soon as I saw her name.

Amy, you are still very much missed!

I've Been TAGGED!

I was reading Jeff's blog yesterday when lo and behold...I had been tagged! I am to tell you what I was doing 10,20 and 30 years ago. Hmmmm....

October 1997

I had finished up a great summer as a Program Director for Laurel Pines and was back at the Crystal Cathedral in Donor Services and a high school ministry volunteer. I was commuting between La Verne and Garden Grove and was just about to begin interviewing for my first paid youth position.

October 1987

This was my sophomore year in high school and I was almost 18! FINALLY! I had a great roommate and we had just gone through Rush Week and were now pledges of Alpha Delta Pi. We were in the midst of midterms and I was on both the newspaper and the radio station as a DJ.

October 1977

I have no clue. Let's see...I was almost 8 years old and I had my party at Aloha Roller Palace when I got my first pair of "real" roller skates. I had recently begun taking group lessons and loved every minute at the rink!

I tag Len, Gman, Mykel, Mel and PK.

J Lo, YMX Meets and More!

Things have been so busy and it's been hard to sit down and simply blog.

Tonight J Lo and Marc Anthony come to the HP and I will again be in our Event Office. I wasn't scheduled for it, but got a call yesterday. I was hoping to get to see some of the show, but now my ears will be spared! It is probably better anyway because...

...tomorrow I get to meet Ruthless! I have "known" her for a few years through YS and YMX, but have not had the chance to meet her. Tomorrow I am taking Cal Train to San Francisco and meeting her, her friend and the Tuna's! Okay, I am nervous about it...but am excited as well. Plus, I haven't been to SF in almost a year. I don't have a lot of time because we have a Sharks game tomorrow night...but I love to get up there when I can.

Last weekend was our High School Presbytery Retreat. I really have no complaints. It didn't go as smoothly as others, but it wasn't stuff the students would really notice. I felt kind of "off" all weekend, but I think it has something to do with the anniversary of Amy's death approaching. Either that or the change in weather. My guess is it is Amy.

Rob and I continue to set up the groundwork for EMDR and then derail a bit because there have been days where I need the talk therapy stuff rather than going into the EMDR stuff. I think that is how it is going to be. Both are really important to me. He had sort of questioned why I jumped at the chance of doing EMDR because of how I have struggled with it in the past. We ended up really talking all of that out and that was really good.

This past Thursday we did a little more groundwork and then talked about the awesome night I had at the HP last Tuesday. After working so much in the event office it was awesome to be Inside Director and interacting with guests. I did one wheelchair escort that was just a lot of fun and they tried to tip me at the end. I admit to being totally curious how much it was, but I handed it back and told them we are not allowed to accept tips. It was very thoughtful of them though.

That's all my "excitement." I need to try and write more often. There is a lot more to say...I just need to think about it a bit more!
