Two weeks. So much has happened in two weeks. I saw Edwin McCain. They made my story the cover of Take 5 (big deal for the non-writer) and I met this amazing musician, Gary Pfaff, who opened for Edwin. I’m thinking of going and seeing Gary next week in Greenville. Gotta see if that really happens.
Valentine’s Day was great. We celebrated for a few days, going to dinner the night before, me cooking dinner the night of and then hanging out that weekend. Kenny bought me chocolates (yum) and another exotic plant I’m sure to kill in about a month.
Running has been good – anyone want to donate and support me in Team in Training?? I need help!! I haven’t been able to run in about a week. Got bronchitis last week, and started running a high fever on Thursday. My energy was zapped, had to stay away from work on Friday and was still sleeping off the codeine on Saturday. Ah, love the codeine.
Work has been ok. Just that. Just ok. I have another story-turned-Take 5 cover running this week. James Blunt. Thank God that one’s almost over. And, tomorrow I’m interviewing Matt Nathanson (highlight of the month!!) Surely that will make my week better, right? I also have a cool section I’m working on that is allowing me to be a designer. Something I haven’t done in quite some time.
In the meantime, Kenny and I are dreaming about Hawaii – if I can get my act together, we’ll be purchasing tickets in the coming weeks – and paying off my credit card (thank you tax refund!) All good things, keeping us very, very busy. Kenny’s at his book club tonight. It makes him happy. Just wish he didn’t get a cold this weekend and he’d be just a little happier.
Up next – James Blunt is in Asheville on Monday. I’m anticipating the show. Wasn’t anticipating writing the story about him. I’m excited about this. We also have tickets for Matt Nathanson/Lifehouse in April and also Kate Nash in April. A busy couple of months for the McKees!
And, my marathon is at the end of April. Definitely click on over to my TNT page and help a girl out with a small donation. Everyone fighting leukemia will thank you, and you’ll feel better about yourself. And, who knows? Maybe we’ll find a cure for the dreaded disease this year.
