I rarely get sick. I'm a super healthy being, I eat fairly well and exercise fairly regularly. I've been blessed with a great immune system and I get sick maybe once a year. I got a bad cold on Christmas night and thought I was good for a while. But then... travel happened.
Nothing like sitting in a germy plane and touching lots of college students to give one a terrible sinus infection or something. I perform at a lot of colleges and universities these days and we all know what a breeding ground for illnesses campuses are. I had two shows in New England and came home last night for two quick days with my daughter before heading out for another week. I felt the sick coming on somewhere over the Midwest and ended up with a fever, body aches, the whole deal by bed time.
I'm feeling a lot better now thanks to a restful day of NOT playing with my daughter (the whole reason I came home) but tomorrow night, I have to take a red eye, with a layover, to Maine and then drive a rental car six hours to do a show in Presque Isle. Stupid. Really stupid planning Amy Anderson. Wish me luck. I promise the blogs will be more interesting and entertaining after this!
