Texas heat, home sweet home and South America

Looks like the northwest is going to rival Texas for the sucky hot-as-hell weather. Eddie isn't a complainer (at all, ever- about anything, it is annoying but one of the many reasons I married him) but reading his last email to the fans, I can see that heat has got him. But he's the kind of guy that can roll with anything- again, annoying but one of the....
I woke up at 5 a.m. this morning. Homegirl is on some kind of schedule, it's strange as soon as she starts rolling around, I'm starving. So up I was to get a bowl of cereal, my go to food when the roosters are yet to stir.
Oh, I guess I should say that since we are back from Europe, I am thinking about keeping this blog going. I can't promise anything but a little news about us, what we're doing, where we're going- stuff like that. So if that's not interesting to you in any way- beat it.
That said my main man Eddie is gone for about 2 more weeks and then I do believe he will be home for one of the longest (if not the longest) stretch of time at home. I can't wait. I am so looking forward to looking at that mans face every morning for about 6 weeks.
That doesn't mean our time together will just be filled with diapers and back to school. He will be hitting the studio on his little break, taking Q along for the ride- that's all I should say about that because I'm not quite sure if he's let that cat out of the bag... oops, meow!
I got to help a little in picking the tunes- I know, I know but screw it, I've got good taste in music and if "What Do I Care" by Johnny Cash isn't in your top 5 best Johnny Cash songs (it's my #1) you should be ashamed of yourself. Our record collection has so much gold in it, Eddie isn't home around enough to find "that song" so it's my job, one of the many anyway. I can't wait for this record, it has been a long time coming and I get to be on the cover, so that is fun for me. I'm sure it will bring another solo tour and after Europe- I could pack up this house and do that shit full time. It really was the time of my life, one that you want to keep doing over and over. Next time we will have Elvis in tow, so what's not awesome about that?
And then there's South America. I can't tell you the jealousy I feel bubbling inside me and the pride that he gets to go. It's new territory people. That is a big deal. When you have been traveling the same streets year after year, it is a great accomplishment to get to try out something new. I know they will be back as a full band, Eddie is flying solo this time to test the waters, which I think is a good idea. If there's a scene they will get to go out with the ground somewhat paved, that is nice.
So that is it for now. I have a feeling I will be spending a lot of time at the library this week (supposed to be in the 90's), I'll write more then. We plan to see a bunch of movies and even brave the mall to avoid the heat. There's no a/c in Seattle- not in your house anyway, so shit gets "hot, sticky, sucks" real quick.


  1. I hope you keep writing, it's fun to read the "inside" scoop & you are an engaging writer. If it gets too hot y'all are welcome to come down to Tacoma and splash in our pool with my boys (if you don't mind dogs and chickens :)

  2. Well thank you. I appreciate (and am learning how to take) the compliment.
