Bye Bye Edie

December 13, 2012

in dessert, music, travel

The one good thing about my flights to LA last night were that they were both empty; I wound up with an entire row to myself. Usually I have to sit on the aisle, so having a center seat and a view out the window was pretty sweet…

…as were these Ritter Sport chocolates from Germany.

Abe picked me up around midnight – took a shower until all the hot water was gone and slept in my own bed for the first time in over a month.

Uh….did all of this really happen???

It’s been a whirlwind adventure since day 1 with the cancelled Thanksgiving flight, and I’m really glad I did it, even though there were times when I didn’t think I could handle the cold, the sleeping arrangements, the complete lack of privacy, the sheer physical exhaustion and intensity of being away from home. I will definitely miss these guys…

…and performing too. Don’t know when I’ll have the opportunity to sing with a band ever again…

…but I am really happy to finally be in Los Angeles (for a few days, at least) and hang up my dirty white jacket.

I made a playlist of all our performances on my YouTube Channel so one day, when I’m an old woman, I can remember how punk rock I once was.

I’m glad you are home safe and sound and reunited with your boys.

It has been freakin’ awesome to travel along with you!

Glad you are back in LA safe and sound!

Maybe I’ll see you Sunday at the Blogger Cookie Exchange?

What a trip! What an experience. It’s been neat living vicariously through you, but I hear ya on all the “rough” patches – exactly the same kind of stuff that would bug the heck out of me…however, it seems wonderful and you did it. Rock on :)

I totally thought I was the only one using the name “k” but apparently there are others. Haha. Happy that you’re back safe and sound!! Get lots of rest!
