Broadway, Ollie, movies and more

20130817_191547_resized_1And it's already Monday again. Had the weekend of which was nice. Work has been really busy and nutty since we got back from Florida. And starting today it will probably increase even more since today is the first day without the girl who gave her notice. Let's see how I do today, trying to combine my various new duties within my department. It will definitely be a challenge and a learning process for everyone involved. Will have to see how things go once we get a routine down. Hard to say how it will be without having actually tried it for real on a day-to-day basis. So fingers crossed it works out. 

The weekend was mostly fun anyway. Saturday we had a vet appointment with Ollie at 11am which is always stressful in itself. He hates being in his carrier and having to go in the car. Unfortunately the vet is on the other side of town, about a 15-20 minute car ride away, which doesn't make things easier. He was so happy sleeping right before I had to pack him up into his carrier too. Click here for a picture. The visit was mostly a check-up from his last visit in November. He is acting fine, eating, sleeping, drinking, etc. but still losing weight. So they took his blood again and are supposed to call me with the results today. Maybe his medication will need to be adjusted. Let's hope it's nothing too bad. 

The rest of Saturday was more enjoyable luckily. Had tickets for the Broadway show "First Date" starring Zachary Levi (Chuck from the TV show "Chuck" if anyone remembers that). We were able to get $35 first row balcony tickets and I was really happy with the show. It felt more like an off-Broadway show with a small cast (only 7 actors) and mostly one set throughout. The show was set in real-time following the couple's first date. I definitely enjoyed it and was happy with the production, very different from your usual big productions, huge casts, elaborate sets, dance numbers and everything else. This felt much more minimalistic but in a good way. Very funny with some language you don't usually hear on Broadway either. :)

After the show we had dinner at Osteria  Al Doge, our usual Italian place. So delicious. Didn't get home till after 2am but it was well worth it. 

Sunday we slept in late, then headed to the movies for a 2pm showing of "Kiss Ass 2". Was a good movie, probably not as good as the first one, but it was still fun. Went to Two Steps for some food afterwards. Hung out there for a while chatting with some friends. 

Now it's Monday and back to work. :(

Mail Update: Sent a letter to: Caroline/Scotland. Received letters/still owe a response to: Nina/WA and Charles/TN.
