I’m so body tired but I don’t want to sleep. All I feel like doing now is eating chips & dip, drinking pop and hanging out on the computer. Last night we had a show. The crowd was the best. They were rowdy, dancing, & loving us….and we loved them right back ~ giving our heart & soul to them with our music. Yeah, sure, sometimes we push it a little too far….like making Rhiannon a 9 minute song because of the screamin’ guitar solo. But they loved it. And the one who requested it came up & got herself a hug during the song.
After we got our equipment torn down & loaded up, my husband & I had a 45 minute drive home. Other band members live even further away ~ up to an hour and 20 minute longer drive.
It was about 4:00 am by the time we got home, then we had to unload a very heavy p.a.. & bring in all the gear. I reheated something to eat & my husband looked over some of the videos from the night. He almost had to “make” me go to bed…sometimes it’s hard to ground yourself after a show when the crowd was really in to you.
So this day found me having to go to work by 11:00 am to my day job…..standing up all day, I might add. Now I feel like my knees just want to bend in backwards. I’m still too wound up to rest. My mind is just too active. I feel wonderful and exhausted, both at the same time, if that makes any sense.
I don’t even want to have conversations on the phone. I am cherishing this time alone.
