THURSDAY MAY 2ND, 2013
Up at 6:00am – out the door at 6:45am.
I am dreading the return to the real world!!
I head home with my dad and daughter.
We drop my dad off at the airport, catch a ferry home, and
the second I pull in the driveway, I grab kids and take them
to swimming lessons, ballet, tball game, awana,
and home at 8:30pm.
LONG day - I am seriously pooped!
FRIDAY MAY 3RD, 2013
I have a gig at a coffee shop tonight that I maybe.. sort of..
forgot about. I really don’t feel like going, not that I don't want
to play, I’ve just been going non-stop since getting home,
and I’m so wiped out. Luckily the weather is fabulous,
which always makes me feel better!
I spent most of the day outside with the kids (practicing), before
heading to the airport to pick up my mother-in-law.
She flew out to help with kids while I’m gone next week.
I took her to my gig, along with my youngest daughter, Isla.
Although not many people showed, (no one wants to
be inside on a day like today) I made a few hopeful
connections, so it was worth it.
SATURDAY MAY 4TH, 2013
In the middle of children’s activities, cleaning,
and mass chaos with our landlords putting our home
up for sale soon, I got a tattoo of my album artwork script
that was designed by my album artwork artist - Jenna Riggs.
I have been wanting to do this for awhile and I’m so excited!
SUNDAY MAY 5TH, 2013
At 2 o’clock in the morning I get an email from Ryan
(don’t ask why I was checking my email at 2am)
He had gone to the emergency room with really bad
chest pains, thinking he was having a heart attack.
Turns out he had some broken ribs from a “fight”
with his bandmates at their photo shoot the week
before I began recording.
Since the injury was due to immaturity :-)
it wasn’t going to affect my recording timeline!
(Sorry Ryan!) Really, I'm glad he's ok!
So Sunday evening, after going to church and
partaking in a wonderful Cinco de Mayo meal that
our lovely chef at church slaved over,
I made the trek back to Five Acres, this time
with husband and two oldest children in tow.
My awesome mother-in-law, who has come
out for the week to help with the kids while I record,
has two youngest at our home with her for this trip.
We arrive about 8pm.
No work tonight, just hanging with Ryan and his family
watching his patience be tested as his beloved hockey team
slowly slides further away from their chance at the Stanley Cup.
