Peanut Met Kenny Chesney

Last Thursday, Kenny Chesney played Bloomington; tickets sold out in three minutes. We bought floor seats and went backstage. It's kind of a big deal because he's not going to tour next year.
Mary's camera was the star of the show: Backstage, Kenny's road manager used her camera to take our photo. As he pushed the button, the battery died. So I made chit chat with Kenny while she swapped out the battery. Then, a security guard came up during the show and tried to confiscate the camera because it has a detachable, telescoping lens (but everyone else in the building can take high quality pics and video!?!?)
The show was great - we got back to Champaign at 12:30pm. Rather than go to bed, I stayed up all night; I went in to work early. I ended up being awake 32 hours straight!

Back to the morning show

It's official. I'm waking up at 3:45 each morning to be on the morning show permanently. I was asked if I would be willing to return a few weeks ago but took three weeks to consider the change.

Pros: Done with work around 1 every day
We might be able to do a half-day of daycare

Cons: lack of sleep
My alarm wakes Mary every morning.

It was waking Mary that I was most concerned with. So far so good - as long as I don't hit the snooze button, Mary falls right back to sleep.
