Here, There, and Everywhere

Literally.
Today Phoenix Drive leaves for Nashville yet again, where we will be through Sunday. We've got gigs, co-writes, and most importantly a couple of showcases for some important people. :) Very exciting stuff. Then, the next few weekends are going to be a blur! The next weekend we'll be in WV and MD, the next is Panama City, FL, then the last weekend in September we'll be in the Blue Ridge Mountains at a Writer's Retreat with Sam Tate, Dave Berg, and Rivers Rutherford (just to name a few). After that, it's Houston, TX, and so on and so forth.
Now I just have to figure out how to take care of an injured parent, BE a parent myself, and do laundry and cook dinner as well as travel all over the place! Anybody got any tips?????

**Important note: This is not me complaining by any means. I'm tickled purplish, for sure. :)

Coffee For Wizards

This will be brief.
I wanted to share with all you good folks today about mine and Chris' new favorite things. My gracious sister, Charissa, her boyfriend, Adolfo, and my mother took my family to Orlando, FL for Disney's Magical Kingdom fun. And it was fun. For those of you who don't know, my family (and my sister) is obsessed with Harry Potter, so of course, it would only be right and decent that we visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter on our trip. So we did. AND, it was GRAND.
We drank lots of butter beer and pumpkin juice, purchased wands from Ollivanders, and had dementors and giant spiders attack us.
Chris and I found these amazing Marauder's Map mugs that we LOVE! I don't think drinking coffee has ever been more exciting.
The end.

Ain't No Party Like My Nana's Tea Party.

Pre-show note: If you don't listen to Flight of The Concords, quit being a loser, and make it happen.

Sooooo.

I'm sitting here, waiting for the garage-door-fixer man to get here. He was supposed to be here at 10:30. Well, he's late. Really late. I have things to do, man. And I'm just sitting here waiting. My mother broke (more like annihilated) her ankle yesterday, so she's up in her bed-ee-boo, and I'm handling all the adult matters today and for a while since she's immobile. :(

Supposed to be cleaning...

I'm supposed to be, per me. But... I've been found guilty a time or 50 of becoming... what's the word? Oh yeah, distracted. All in good intention, mind you.
Today, as I went over on paper my to-do list of cleaning chores I bunny trailed into the world of homemade-cleaning-concoction-land. And now, of course, I'm blogging about it. Oops. Double distraction. :)

Despite the divergence from my original plan today, I AM quite excited about the other progresses I've made instead. I found two lovely little recipes for homemade air fresheners, which I made and am now enjoying spraying all over the house (that is still presently unclean, but at least smells good). And I also put to use one of my MOSTEST FAVORITE items EVER; my label-maker!!! YES!!!! Partners in crime-fighting, we conquer the evils of disorganization together, wherever it may be lurking.

Ready, Set, Write!

I'm trying to enter at least 2 blogs per week, and already I'm failing. I'd probably be fine if I wasn't so afraid of posting lameness. But, alas, lameness is just a part of my everyday life, so I guess I should just get over it. ;)
Some amazing things are happening with my band, Phoenix Drive, and I've been super busy juggling that and the kids going back to school. You'd think I'd be flowing with interesting things to post about, but somehow, being busy makes my head innards a bunch of jumbly-wumbly, and when I sit down to write/type, it's just meesh-moosh coming out.
