I am so exhausted. I am still sick. My medical degree is telling me that my sinuses are infected. What, you didn’t know I have a medical degree? My biggest problem is that I am SO BUSY, I haven’t let myself just sit back and relax and do nothing. Over the weekend, I had a concert for work, a Dodger game, and an impromptu BBQ. I know I should have skipped the BBQ, but…I was hungry! Mike and I needed to eat! Actually, one of the number one reasons we went to the BBQ was because I feel like I haven’t seen any of my friends in weeks. I haven’t seen my roommates in a million years! That’s how freaking busy I am. And it’s only getting worse. I won’t spend a weekend in Hermosa Beach until September – and only one weekend in September! I swear, at this rate I won’t have a free Saturday until 2004, which means that one of my New Year’s Resolutions will most likely be to “shake this cold that’s been lingering for the last five months.” Gah. I know I should go to the doctor! You do my job for me while I go, okay? I have been insanely busy at work this week with Grammy nominee submissions, which I am in charge of this year for my company. I told all the people involved that they had to give their information to be NO LATER than today. Now, here I sit, at 4:53 PM, 7:53 on the East Coast, and I think I have maybe 10%-20% of what I need. Bastards! Do your damn job so I can do mine! I’m seriously giving myself an ulcer over this. Oh well, what can I do? Moving on. Last night I went with my mom and her friend to the Dixie Chicks concert down at The Pond in Anaheim. Before the show, we stopped at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Restaurant. Man, that crap is good! I am positively CRAVING that chicken soup right now. I’ve never found creamy soup like that that actually tastes good. Being sick, it was the best thing I had ever tasted. The chicken and the potatoes and biscuits and corn and pie were good, too! I want it all again. By the time we made our way through the traffic, Michelle Branch was almost done with her opening set. Since I’d just seen her at Wango Tango about a month and a half ago, I wasn’t sad about missing her. In between Michelle’s set and the Dixie Chicks, I met up with Tara, Diane, Erin, and George, whose seats were just over from ours. The concert was great. They had a great set list, and the stage was something to watch all by itself. It had all these cool effects going on during each song, and since the set up was “Theatre in the Round” style, it was nice to have something else to see since the group wasn’t always visible. I had a blast. Of course, today my voice is thrashed from singing along to every song. It’s never a good idea to sing at the top of your lungs when you have a cold that won’t go away. I wish I had some of that soothing chicken noodle soup right now
