This week I hope to drag myself out of the house for a show or two. I had a super busy week, or so it seemed. I did nap a lot and I spent a lot of it being sore after some really good workouts. I feel like I was productive but I might have undone all that work with the amount of food I ate on Sunday. It was all worth it though. Hopefully I can shake this lethargy and get out to see some bands this week. Hopefully you make it out too!

I never thought I’d be someone who missed the rain, but after this wind we’ve had the past few days, I think I would rather have the rain again. At least the wind is helping things dry out, so I really shouldn’t complain. However, I have had a scratchy throat off and on so I’m not sure if I’m getting sick, have allergies, or am just dried out from the weather. The joys!

It’s a weird week for shows this week. This is SD at it’s best where it’s all on one day(s) and nada on others. Sigh.

Well, it’s been a rainy week this past week and it gave me a chance for some quality chill time. I might have purchased a surplus of books and am already 100 some pages in. I can’t wait to get through that whole stack oh books. We have more rain today and possibly tomorrow so there is ample opportunity to get cozy. I might have to venture out to see Rick Astley though because, well you know. And if you don’t, I don’t know what to do with you.
