Birthday Week

This week got off to an interesting start.

Poor Jameson has some sort of eye irritation going on, and it's causing him a lot of pain. He went to a doctor on Monday, but was referred back to his primary care for evaluation. It's frustrating, because if a solution can't be found in the next few days he'll likely have to cancel his gigs for the week or until they figure out what's wrong.

Monday was my birthday, but I was kinda too busy to celebrate it. I've been debating whether to tell people what I'm up to...you may have noticed that in a few previous blog posts I’ve mentioned a “project” or that I’m doing something “for the future”, etc. Well...it’s still not certain, so I’m still not going to tell you what it is. But I spent eight hours on Monday finding out if it’s something I’m even capable of. I’m happy to say that the results were good, so hopefully by the end of the month I’ll be able to share what’s going on. Don’t get too excited, it’s not a big deal. Just a big change for me personally.

Anyway, my day was busy, and since Jameson wasn’t feeling well and since it was my birthday we indulged in some King Bao! Sooooo goooood :)

On Tuesday I had a day off, which was super convenient because Jameson’s eye is causing him so much pain he doesn’t feel safe driving :/ I was really glad that I could drive him to his eye appointment and to pick up his prescription, and later on to his gig at The Villages! He had to play the whole night with sunglasses on. But hey...sounded great!

I feel bad that he is hurting and there’s nothing I can do to take that pain away. But I can be there at least. He has done the same for me! Cuz he’s awesome!

Wednesday, eight more hours of figuring out my life. After that I went to the store for a cooler and dry ice because the fridge is acting up and we want to let it thaw. Sometimes when it's really humid ice can accumulate around the motor and it causes problems. I rescued as much food as possible, then we made sloppy Joes from some ground beef so we wouldn't have to throw it out, and watched TV together.

On Thursday I had one Ain't Misbehavin' performance, which went well. When I came home we plugged the fridge back in and went grocery shopping. I received a surprise package: a whole chocolate flourless cake from my sister Raven! Wow!!! We enjoyed some of it after dinner and let me tell you, it was decadent AF. I know we can't eat all of it soon enough so I've stashed a big chunk of it in the freezer for later enjoyment. Thanks Rave!

Friday, two shows for me. Before that I went to the gym. My, uh, cruise ship weight is already starting to come off just from returning to normal eating habits, but I do want to stay active. All of the machines are new so I spent some time relearning, then I got a phone call, so I didn't exactly work out that much. But that's ok :)

So then, two shows. The first one went well, we had a high school group that put out a lot of energy and enthusiasm! That felt nice :) I don't think anything else amazing happened that day.

Saturday, the same, two shows. In between I came home and brought dinner from Subway. It was just a nice normal day.

Tomorrow I have one show, and then I hope Jameson and I can go see the second LEGO movie!
