still not dead...

I honestly would swear to you that it has been a week, tops, since I'd last posted. However, I see from the date that I'm completely wrong, as usual.

I have one week left here. Today I am volunteering at Jazz Fest and, in exchange, get free entry. I am going early to shop and eat before my 2-6pm shift selling beer, soft drinks, and water. After my shift I shall wander between Bonnie Raitt and Jill Scott, trying to catch a bit of both concerts.

My last weekend here is also the second weekend of Jazz Fest. My going away present to myself was a VIP pass for the whole weekend. Pricey but worth it to me. John Mayer, Harry Connick, Jr., Eric Lindell (and if you don't know who that is, google him and listen to the music!), Joss Stone, Steely Dan...and so many others. I like to think of it as a 3-day going away party for me!

I'm ready to go home. I miss my family and my house. I miss feeling like I have any sort of a life. I'm ready to just take it easy for a while, go riding on the bike with John, spend some time with Crash...just relax and enjoy the summer. I can't wait for all my travel plans to take place. I'm looking forward to seeing M1, Kim, Tammy, and everyone else I'm going to see over the next month and a half. And Vegas....we can't forget about our trip to Vegas!

Have a wonderful last week of April/first week of May. I'm going to be spending a lot of time this week sampling some of the places I'm going to miss having around to get a bite to eat. I'm sure I'll be back to visit before the end of the summer!
