Little House~The Musical

OK, so I heard today that they are making a musical for Little House on the Prairie. How awesome is that!!!! And I heard that Melissa Gilbert is playing Caroline (Ma). This year keeps getting better and better with each day.

I was so tired today at work. I was up until about 2am and had to be at our main offices for a meeting at 9am. I will be honest...my brain was not as sharp as it usually is. After work I took Sophie for an extra long walk. Starting Monday I am going to get serious about losing weight and getting into shape, so both Sophie and I need to get used to walking a lot in the evenings. We walked out to the entrance of our apartment building and then up this narrow 2 lane road for about one block. I was just trying to get us to this parking lot where we could jog for a bit. I am not sure I will do that again because we almost got hit 3 times because people did not care that Sophie and I were on the shoulder of the road. There is a small creek on the side of the road so the shoulder is very narrow and there is not a lot of room. One car got so close to us that if Sophie or I had moved just a few inches closer we would have been hit. We only had maybe 50 feet to walk, but it was literally a near death experience. Once we got to the parking lot I started jogging with Sophie. I have a lot of work to do (and so does Sophie), but we will get there. Sophie is a good sport to run along with me in the heat. Sophie has been asleep since 6:30pm and I imagine she will sleep rest of the evening.

Sunday is June 1 and I am anxious to get that day over with. Getting the email from my Dad kind of put a twist in the whole situation, but I almost feel as if it was a sign for me that my parents do still think about me and love me. That email might be just what I needed to let go of all that anger and sadness I have held inside for so long.

Oh my--I can see it now, you'll be counting down the days until the musical comes to town.

Come to my neighborhood to walk with me. Heavens knows I need the walking plan.

Get some rest.

I read articles about ppl who commute via bikes to work and I want so badly to try it, but I live in a city with drivers who HATE cyclists.

A musical? Can Melissa Gilbert sing? Oh well, who cares, right?

Just a word of caution (this may not apply to you) but my father once tried similar things, with short notes. It was just to see if I'd respond - the church actually advised him to do this, and to keep trying until he caught me "in a weak moment" because then they might be able to take control and pull me back into the church. Luckily, I never had a weak moment! I hope this isn't the case with you- I hope his motives were pure.

You have GOT to be kidding me! LOL I honestly think they will make a musical out of ANYTHING these days.
Still i'm a huge fan of the Little House Books. HUGE
