Improv, Roxie and Janet, oh my!

It's Sunday and I am fresh off my very first improv class. It was so much fun! I took full advantage of a groupon (as did all but one other person in the class) and we mimed, mirrored, and one-lined our way through the two hour intro class. Low and behold, many of the improv games, we play here in the Rodenbeck/McFarland household on a regular basis! Games such as "finish the story" where each person takes a few lines of a story, then passes it to the next - we do that all the time with Max and Pheobe - they love it. Phoebe and I started a new game on the plane home from Myrtle Beach that we love called "subject and verb." We give the other person two subjects and a verb and they have to tell a story using both. Of course, improv was just like that. Today, I had to go on a "rant" about Chris Brown. It was really hard, actually because halfway through, my mind went blank and I couldn't remember any of his songs! Well, I have three more classes and I can't wait to see what I get to do next - the teachers also do an improv show on Tuesdays at Lemmons - I'll try to check it out soon!

Did a lot of sleeping this weekend. I think I've finally figured out that I compeltely push myself during the week at work and on our weekend with the kids and then I'm just worn out on our weekend off. I took at nap on Saturday and one today. It was nice to not have anything to do, so I could actually have time to rest.

Our Roxie is pretty sick. She is throwing up everywhere, still peeing outside the litterbox and not eating. We took her to the vet on Saturday and they did several tests, but didn't really see anything wrong. Last month, she was diagnosed with bladder stones and we gave her a month of special food and medication and they told us yesterday that the stones were gone, so that was good news. Hopefully, she is just having a hard time recovering from the passing the stones and she will get better soon. We come home and have to check for kitty puke and pee before we walk anywhere. Its disgusting.

Two bits of good news - the Emily's kidney crew was interviewed by the Suburban Journals and that story should be out soon. More media is on the way as well, so stay tuned. I am still completely overwelmed by the response to Emily's kidney and her plight!

Secondly, my favorite musician and I will be reunited on Thursday. Yes, Janet Jackson will be performing for me in a private show at the Fox theatre. What's that? A few thousand other people are coming as well? And what's that? She doesn't remember me from the last three shows she did for me? I don't believe that - surely she remembers me, back in 1994 at her Janet concert. I bought a t-shirt - the vendor said it was a "special edition." Either way, I am so excited - my girl Amanda and I will be rocking out as much as two just over 30 year olds can rock out, when thinking "I am really excited to be at the kick-ass concert, but I hope Janet hurries up, because I have to get home and get to bed because I have to get up and go to work in the morning!" Admit it, Amanda, you know you'll be thinking it!

That's all for now - stay tuned for more info on Emily's Kidney!
Kidney love!
