"Mama I'm coming home"

Yay, he'll be here in about 2 hours, driving in from Spokane. I am so happy, and it's HALLOWEEN! I love it, we are real big on Halloween here. I can't wait to get Q all dressed up with his make-up etc, it's going to be amazing. I have worked so hard on this costume, which is something I look forward to doing every year. This year is blowing all the others out of the water for sure, and there have been some pretty damn good ones in the past.
So we are T-minus 9 days until we pack this up and hit the road, I was thinking I might bring my cute little video camera and video blog... how does one do that? I will have to find out with all my free time, HA!

Mmmm hmmmm.

Yep, that's the one.

Work it out.

Sounds like all is going well on this tour. I just talked to Eddie (I'm lying, we were texting) and he and Marty are jammin' out in the htl room, Scott is probably sleeping and Bolton watching cartoons. Fisher was on FB but now who knows, maybe he's buying me a present. Kidding.
It's all very exciting. The fans aren't the only ones that want a change in set. Shit, you aren't the only ones that want a new record. I chalk it up to being exhausted, mentally, the whole lot of them. Things were not that awesome for the last few years, I will say that. And again, I know this isn't my band, but it is my business. Unhappy husband is an unhappy family and that will always be my business. Anyway, that's all I will say, I think they are all on the right track, I can practically smell it- stale beer, sweat and pot mixed with a little bit of change. Mmmm.
But the tour, I can't wait! I was just thinking about it and my last SS show was... dare I say, Hootenanny? WTF!? After that we went to Europe (where I started this lil thang) and since then I've been here, having babies, walking dogs, skateboarding with 8 year olds and shit. I like to think of it as a Jekyll and Hyde. I stay home and do my thing- the mom thing, until I get bored or until Q crosses one too many consecutive days off the calendar. Then we go out on the road (99% of the time with our kid(s)) with 'the greatest rock n' roll band in the world' and enjoy this life, and all it's unconventional beauty. I mean after our kids are grown this is what we will be doing full time, together... I hope it's not in the big white van but even if it is, I'll still be there.

this is not a hillbilly freak out, she's mid-sneeze and I think it's funny

I've finally got news! Well other than the baby thing, heh heh heh.
The kids and I are going to take this dog and pony show on the road again- and you guessed it, I'm gonna blog about it.
I gather we will be taking our own car, since the boys are going over to Denver before hitting the coast. I have nothing against Denver, except where it's located... not on the coast.
I'm thinking I will pack up the baby and Elvis (ha ha) and meet these boys in San Francisco, which I think is November 11.
How exciting! I better go take these dogs for a walk before there's trouble.

I can't take it!

So I have been reading the bands msg board, a lot of people not in the know have a lot to say about what we all know- Ron has left the band.
I guess I realize and appreciate that opinions are like assholes. I get it- god forbid I give an opinion though, everyone would jump all over it. Anyway, I'm rambling because I have precious little time right now I just wanted to say it is what it is an no ones cryin'. If you choose to "leave" the band and move on, go ahead. I don't think it is possible for the band to break up after this- Siegel went and no one cried then either (well maybe his girlfriend did). It's life. It's a business, the fucking show must go on- no one has a plan B here. I mean, maybe one day Eddie will be solo and Dan will be a tow truck driver, but I can't see- those two are like Frik and Frak, they complete each other.
I'd love to write a book and tell you all the drama from behind the scenes- you don't have to be in Van Halen to have a story to tell but there's that- it isn't my story to tell. I'd love to accept the Yoko title too, but truth be told, I have nothing to do with the band. I have little to do with the music (although I will admit to influencing Eddie through our relationship, that ended up in song) what's he supposed to write about? smoking pot all day? He just doesn't do that anymore, it's would be fake. I do think there's a lot more fun in his writing to come, it has been an odd 3 years, so I am hoping the next record is a little more rock and a little less relationship. There, I said it, I am tired of hearing about our trials and trib's too but I am glad he did what he wanted, I am not going to say I don't appreciate the work he does, whatever he does, I'm a lifer but I'm ready for something else, in the music. I'll keep my life the way it is though, as you know- we've had to work hard and celebrating 10 years of marriage (in December!) is how we get paid.
Oh and for all the shit talkers on the msg board. Suck it.

So our little honey/babymoon is coming to a screeching halt.
Eddie left this morning for the mid west and I am doing the single mom thing.
I miss him. It has been amazing to have him here and I think it is very rock n' roll for him to be such a kick ass Dad, although I think that makes me miss him more.
No time to write. Must get dogs walked, dinner served, kid in the shower..... the list goes on and on, but I am STILL not complaining.
