Sorry that today’s blog is a bit late – as I’ve mentioned, we’re dealing with some kid issues at home. Today I spent part of the morning getting my son transferred from his current school over to homeschooling for the next school year, beginning in late August. This is a huge change for all of us, and after much nail biting, worrying and even a few tears, I think this is the best answer for right now. Wish us luck, send me wine, and words of wisdom from time to time might help. Right now my son is cautiously optimistic (which tells me he’s really thinking about what it all might be like), and my husband is supportive. It’s all I can really ask for. I just hope I’m doing the right thing. I have no idea what my schedule will be like, but I would imagine that it will most definitely need to change with regards to the blog – I’m still committed to writing each day, it’s just a matter of figuring out when
to write. I promise to keep you updated! As for the book, I’ve given myself a firm deadline, and that’s that my portion(s) must be completed by late July. That’s going to be a stretch, but it is what must be done.
Have you sent your birthday greeting yet?? Duran Duran put out a request for short birthday wishes to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org in honor of Nick’s BIG birthday….I sent mine in, and you should get yours in as well. Deadline is this Saturday, June 2nd. It happens to the best of us, Nick. Well, not me (yet), but you know…I think you had a bit of a head start!
So that Atlanta date…. I was really starting to wonder if this show was going to happen, mainly because it had been so long since I’d heard anything. Secretly I thought maybe I’d missed the news somewhere, and as I mentioned to Amanda yesterday, I figured that if I’d missed it, I was just going to figure it out later because I was busy having a life outside of my extracurricular activities! It happens, right? So the word is that the venue is beginning their “Series” on-sale as of Sunday, June 3rd. That means that this show is being sold to their subscribers in a sort of package along with several other shows, kind of like season tickets. Then after that, the DDM presale will begin on June 13th. While once again I have serious scheduling issues with the presale date – it’s my youngest’s last day of school and that means I am at her school that day (not something I can or even want to get out of), I have no doubt that Amanda and I will figure this out. Of course, she’s going to be on her way to a little vacation with her parents – but you know, it’s not really a fun or a tour unless we’ve got some crazy drama going on, right? It’s the challenge that makes it worth our time! If you are not a DDM member, then the public on-sale date (non-series, single show tickets) is on Saturday, June 16th. Let us know if you’re going to the show because we’d like to do a get-together and possibly look into group rates at a hotel if there’s enough interest! Assuming Atlanta works out, that means Amanda and I will be touring the cities and highways beginning in Biloxi, onward to Atlanta, and then ending up in North Carolina.

Last but not least, today is Blue to Brown’s big day with their release party at the Cookoo Club in London. It’s fairly obvious that Amanda and I could not be there, but we send our very best wishes to Dom and his dad for a great showcase. Have you bought your copy of Blue to Brown yet?? Get out there and get one, then buy one for a friend! Also, if you want to keep up with the latest Blue to Brown news, “like” their new facebook page!
