    What did you think about Wicked? I read the book and really didn't care for it, but I've heard the musical was good.
    The Wizard of Oz is my favorite movie and I have a lot of collectibles, so it was hard for me to read Wizard because it's SO different. I think I would like to see the musical though.
    The show was amazing. The actresses who played Glenda and the Wicked Witch had some of the best voices Iíve ever heard. My favorite part was how the show let you in on background secrets of the Wizard of Oz like how the Lion, Scarecrow, and Tin Man came into being. I'm still singing the soundtrack today.

    I saw Spamalot with the original cast--Hank Azaria, David Hyde Pierce, the actress who plays "Callie" in "Grey's Anatomy." It was sooooooooooo good and soooooooooooo funny. My sister in law and nieces have seen WICKED multiple times. That's how much they loved it! I didn't love it, but I thought it was cute and sweet and I loved the ending! Very cool! I would go see Spamalot again in a heartbeat!

She'll be moving to Miami to live with her Dad and attend college in the fall. We had reservations for lunch at Sardis but when we got there they claimed no reservation existed. I was about to open my mouth, when she took over and provided them with every single detail of our reservation including the name of the person who took it. I will miss her more than I can say in the fall but I now know she can fend for herself
    Sounds like you raised her right!

    You get 30-minute vacations? That's TWICE what I get!

    I have been helping my new friend pack her house. She has lived in it 21 years and we did her entire dining room today. Girl has 3 complete sets of china for 18 people. Some was her mom's. She has THREE china cabinets!!!!
    Anyway, we knocked out a LOT of boxes today and she sent me home with a bag of clothes and shoes that had been her daughter's. (my daughter was THRILLED) and a stand mixer! I've always wanted a stand mixer but have never wanted to pay the cost although I've bought and burnt out enough hand mixers to have bought a stand mixer by now. Anyway, this one is old, but it runs well and I'm THRILLED myself to have it. She wouldn't let me buy it from her (she is packing to keep and packing for yard sale) and all this was yard sale stuff.

    I'm so happy, I'm going to go bake Rosie (the dog) a birthday cake using the new stand mixer!

    myrosie, Congrats on your stand mixer! I want one too but like you, the cost for the ones I want are a bit out of budget right now. I'm sure your friend appreciated your helping her pack as it would probably have been harder to do it alone. I know you said they are amicable in their divorce but I'm sure it's still not easy to say good-bye after all those years together. I'm really happy that you've found someone who you click with. That's always a great feeling.
