It's a little scary that I'm leaving town the day after tomorrow considering that I have 200 pounds of dirty laundry piled in my basement and have given no thought to what I'm going to pack.
I woke up early this morning, but focused my energies on cleaning up the kitchen and making a loaf of banana bread. You can only neglect overripe bananas so long...
All is not lost, though - I've started delegating. My husband has generously offered to make a pilgrimage to Micro Center (such a sacrifice for him to make a trip to his favorite store!) and get me a bigger Flash card for my camera. I am determined to take a reasonable number of photos at BlogHer this year, for once.
Before I go, I need to do something about the blue streaks in my hair. The blue is fading quickly, even though it's only been a little over a week. I have purchased two different semi-permanent blue dyes with which I hope to keep nursing the color along until my next hair appointment. I wouldn't mind the fading so much except that light blue looks an awful lot like grey, and I don't want to run around with white or grey streaks in my dark hair. That would tend to reverse the kind of impression I was trying to make.
Tonight I have a practice with the cover band for which I auditioned last week. Apparently they liked me. The good news is that we're practicing in someone else's studio instead of the tiny, ring-y basement room where we got together last time. I'm still bringing ear plugs, though.
I won't be taking the Jeep with me to practice this time. Last Thursday's gig pretty much finished the poor thing off until it can have some serious repairs done. By the time my husband managed to limp it home, the engine was knocking so loud I could hear it a couple of blocks away. Even before that, the steering rack (or maybe the tie rods) were protesting even the gentlest turn, and of course, the air conditioner isn't working. We're going to drop it off with our favorite slow mechanic with the idea that by the time we: a) have the money to pay for repairs and, b) need it for winter driving conditions, it'll be ready.
The timer for the banana bread just went off, so I'll wrap this up. Enjoy your Tuesday and if you're going to BlogHer and haven't yet commented, say something!
