I'm in and totally exhausted! The party went really, really well. A few sprinkles here and there but it was hot so no one seemed to even notice. Had some difficulty with the electrical load and circuit breakers popping for the first 20 minutes, but a swarm of men jumped in, rerouted a few things, ran some extension cords to neighbor's houses and we were good to go.
The food was fantastic and I'm not even going to begin to explain my overeating both Saturday and Sunday. (Broke down tents, etc. Sunday and brought all of the left-overs back out...) But the band...!!! Oh my God! They were so incredibly awesome! I thought that they were just bringing some guitars and a keyboard, etc. But they brought their entire flipping stage set-up!
We had a big tent just for them and they filled the entire thing with amps, speakers, drum sets, etc. I love being in a big, generous, musical family! When the truck pulled in with all of the equipment, I couldn't believe my eyes! It was so much better than I had ever dreamed. Everyone was having such a good time enjoying the food and music that they played for an additional 4 hours! We have 5-6 bands in our family; rock, country, bluegrass, etc. But they outdid themselves Saturday. People were stunned to find out that they were our relatives. We had people come from our community who heard the music, and came to hear them play who weren't even invited. It was crazy, but awesome crazy!
Checking in as much as possible, but will be traveling to see my mom later in the week and figure out her future plans from here. May be a tough week; not sure. So, I'll be on the road quite a bit, but mindful that I need to get back to healthy eating.
1. Calories between 1000-1200.
2. Water bottle with me at all times.
