Nice work, Kiki!

Dee, I love that analogy about the AV being like a bratty toddler.....I'm very good at ignoring them!

Lesson went well ~ to answer your question Phoenix ~ I guess I'd been air drumming to music my whole life without realizing it, and people have always encouraged me to take lessons. What sealed the deal was when I was introduced to Shannon Larkin from Godsmack....he is literally the human version of Animal from the Muppets ~ SO fun to watch! At first glance I said "Who is THAT and where has he been all my life???" ~ That was about 10 years ago....took forever to put the drink down long enough to do something about it...

And speaking of which ~ The guys at the music store just told me tonight that they're putting together a "recital" for students if we're interested in playing. I would have to, like, learn a song and play it ~ in front of people at the store! And it's only a month away....Are they crazy??????

Purplrks you'll have to "go live" with your recital piece so we can all watch!

That sounds like a great goal, truly! Yeah!

In Los Angeles airport...waiting for a flight out. Every 15 steps...airport bar. But I'm hungry, so I'm sitting at a table right next the bar waiting for my quesadilla.

I really hate business travel...but otherwise, I'm good.

At times like this I think....this is going to be bad. Then...no wait....this will be my brightest hour. My coworker is having a Bloody Mary. I smell the tobassco...lol! Now that's temptation.

. I can't see what I'm typing in this phone. Hope it makes sense.

Kiki, great job today.
Lillian, great advice. I hope your trip goes well and uneventful.
Purple- can't wait to hear your drum solo! You rock! For real.

Sam- hey! Hope you're settling into your new position.

Apple - have a good evening.

Sweet dreams my March people!

Makes perfect sense Lillian. Poignant in fact.

What is it about airports and alcohol? I have some sad memories about the combination.

Good work today, Kiki.

Goodnight Bobbieka.

It's about 1245 here. Went to sleep around 10 and just experienced some of craziest/scariest dreams I ever had. Now feeling like will be sick. I don't feel like I'm coming down with anything so I wonder if I am having some delayed withdrawal symptoms. As I think about it, I'd been pretty cranky and angry all day. Oh well.

LG, I hear you on the business travel. I used to get pretty banged up when I travelled - expense the whole thing - thought that's what I was "supposed" to do. I don't travel as much as I used to, but still a little bit. It's not much fun.

Gonna read for a bit, then hopefully back to sleep.

Sorry about the week Sam! Do you have this weekend off?

Happy Friday everyone! Day 10 (again).

LB happy final packing and flying day!

MITA I pray you got back to sleep!

I've been awake since 4:30 bc of baby waking and then knowing my sister is on her way in for a c-section and my new niece will be arriving!

Messed up that new life gives AV life. I'm exhausted and will have to play the tape through!

AK, I did get a little more sleep - not enough though It will be okay.

I think my situation is a little more manageable than yours, but certainly less wonderful. Enjoy all the new life!!

Good morning all, unless it's afternoon or evening where you are. I'm reminded of Jim Carrey in The Truman Show:

"Good morning, and in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight."

I liked that movie quite a bit.

Be good to yourself, Sam. You deserve an extra special cup of tea today.

Be strong Applekat. Good things made me drink just like bad things--it's stress I think. Now we just don't drink. It's simpler that way.

Day 7 is here. Long day ahead but I feel steady. Have a good and sober day everyone.

Good morning! Happy freaking Friday!

MITA - Sorry about your dreams. I hope you can turn it around and have a fantastic day!

Samantha - Hugs to you. Rough week, but guess what? You made it. That's because you are strong and you are awesome!

Applekat - New baby! Yay! Be the sober, loving aunt. Get in lots of baby smells.

Pelagic- You are sounding so different. It is refreshing. I loved the Truman Show. Hope you have a great day and some fantastically rare bird crosses your path.

Have a great day/evening everyone!

So funny, Kiki!

As I was getting ready for work this morning, I was reflecting on how grateful that I am that my life is so good right now. Fact is, there is nothing spectacular going on. No windfalls of money, still battling problems from when we closed our business, no new babies, younger son battling his own demons. Life is just life. Problems, joys, NORMAL. I am so grateful my life is normal. Thanks, guys, for helping be somewhat normal again. (I'm sure many will say something about me and normal not going together - but you know what I mean)

He said, "what the hell was that all about?" Man, I've wanted to ask that question.
