Oh, hell, yeah! We took a little trip down to Phoenix and took in Louie's 7:00 show on Saturday night at the Celebrity Theater. He was fantastic--a top-notch professional. They were taping his next HBO special that night, and I marveled at how he was able to deliver his material, negotiate a microphone with a cord, and address the audience in a theater-in-the-round setting. He didn't miss a beat. What an inspiration.
The weather was gorgeous! During the day on Saturday we just lounged at the pool. It was the first I'd been able to relax in a week, and it was wonderful! Yesterday we did some hiking in the Cave Creek recreation area north of Phoenix, up near where we stayed. What a cool place--I love those saguaro cacti.
This one must have been thinking of Rosie O'Donnell.
What a great time; our Valentine's weekend of love. Speaking of, I love this passage in the card Mike got for me.
Hahaha! I'm a lucky gal. And speaking of love, today is a special day for two reasons. First, today is my son's birthday--my Christopher is 35 today. How can I have a kid who's 35??? That's the only time I ever feel old, when I think of how old my kids are.
|Me and my "little" boy, all 6'4" of him!|
You know you're old when your kid has gray in his beard, right?
Every mother thinks the world revolves around her son, and I'm no different. Christopher is just the nicest, sweetest person and he always has been. I love my boy! Today is also special because it's Mom and Stepdaddy's seventh anniversary. Don't they look beautiful?

I have another full week ahead of me with family and friends visiting and a good amount of work on my plate (thankfully, not as much as last week). Also, I'm one of seven finalists in the Put Up or Shut Up comedy contest, so I have that on Tuesday night at 9:00 at Scoundrel's Pub on Decatur. Life is good. Yep.
