Have I mentioned lately that I miss Ben? Yeah, I miss him. He was home for approximately 24 hours on Sunday into Monday, and then promptly took off for the next leg of his crazy, jam-packed summer. The first week was sort of, “Meh, whatever, I can deal.” But this week was a lot harder. And this is just the beginning. I will maybe see him for a few hours this weekend, and then won’t see him again until the 22nd. Ugh.

Things with Dogfight are slowly but surely improving. It’s no longer the train wreck I feared it would be, and we still have 3 more rehearsals before we open. I’m just still very nervous about playing guitar onstage and singing at the same time. We may have someone play backstage while I pretend to play, but I’m not sure how much better that will be. Also, I change ON STAGE not once but twice, once WHILE singing, so yeah, I have a lot of stuff to figure out. Oy. Speaking of Dogfight…

We did another live TV promo like I did for Chess. I had to stay overnight in Stowe and get up at 4:15 am to do some live promotional segments on our local news station. I know it’s an important thing to get the word out, but man, live TV is terrifying, having my face and voice on the internet forever is terrifying, and doing it before I’ve even finished a cup of coffee just isn’t fair. If you’re interested in seeing/hearing me sing some stuff from the show, click here!

I am so. freaking. tired. Tonight will be my first night off all week, and I can’t wait to go home and just do NOTHING. The whole fam is away at the family reunion in Maine, so I’m home alone again with the animals. I woke up at 4 am after a loud noise, convinced there was someone in the house, and lay there panicking for a solid 15 minutes before realizing Creemee was just going to town on her scratching post. Oof. I’m sleeping forever tomorrow. FOREVER.

My sunburn is finally fading a bit. I felt SO FOOLISH walking around with big, white raccoon eyes and a red nose all week. I’ve been trying to keep everything well moisturized, but it’s only a matter of time before I start to peel. While I weirdly love peeling off dead skin, it looks gross. I have started researching all natural daily moisturizers that contain SPF so I can avoid this situation in the future…

My in-laws are taking an overnight trip to celebrate their anniversary, meaning I will be home all alone with the animals tonight. I don’t think I’ve ever actually spent a night by myself at the house, so it will be weird. Thankfully I have lots of kitties and doggos to keep me company.

Someone found this blog with the search term “beer in bed,” and it tickled the hell out of me. I rarely get to see the specific search terms that lead people to my little corner of the internet, but this one made me so happy!

What’s the weirdest search term that’s ever brought someone to your blog?
