Okay so I'm itchin to hit the road again really fast. It's in my blood. The ROAD. Two Wheels. But priorities took over. We got hit with another flood bummer last week (not near as devastating as May 2010) and so now I need to sit tight and supervise the dudes excavating the entire front of our house here in Nashville. They have to excavate all the way to the slab and put in a French drain. The May flood coupled with the hard rains last week just wrecked the front of the house drain capabilities. And, of course, Patrick goes back on the road. It sux that his career is always priority in this house and in my world because he's a bass player with a major country star and his chair is NUMBER ONE over everything. It's the way it goes in the relationship of being with a musician. I didn't know that.
So, my mandatory priority is taking care of the homestead while he's on tour. He's a good man and takes good care of me and has provided a nice home for this gypsy girl. Can't help, though, that the road constantly beckons my heart. It's in my blood. Two wheels move my soul. That is my secret wannahaveit priority, but in my selflessness, I am here in Nashville watching the baby animals and a contractor dude tear up the front yard.
Home is where the heart is and my heart shares the love of the road and actually having a real bed to lay my head at night with Patrick. Just wish I could fly my ride alot more like days of yor.
This flood stuff and a bummer economy has particularily messed up my roll this summer. But it surely made Sturgis 2010 that much sweeter to attend.
