Christmas will be the last day in my little town house and a new journey will begin. 2009 is going to be a year of changes. Save the ship(the band i am in), is embarking on an adventure. We are all getting our ducks in a row and saving in order to move around summer time...our destination of choice is Cleveland, TN. Our reasoning behind this change is that it will be much more economical for us as a band to live somewhere other than panama city, fl.
We picked the state of Tennessee because it is bordered by something like 8 states, which makes a lot of sense for a touring band. We would also be central to a lot of major cities. Cleveland is where we recorded the last time and we all thought it would be a great place to live, plus the cost of living is pretty low there.
The town house that me and zach own and are currently living is going up for rent (through prudential) as of January 1st, we are praying that it will be rented fast! Its not expensive (its cheaper than most one bedrooms, and is a 2bedroom 1 1/2 bath) and its in good shape, hopefully it will rent asap.
The year ahead will definitely come with its share of struggles...but i am at a place in my life where i am ready to live life to the fullest, and i'm not getting any younger.
You only live one life on this earth, make the most of it!

So...after careful thought and consideration i have decided to try the vegetarian lifestyle for 30 days. I have been feeling like crap lately and really want to start eating healthier, i realize this can be done whilst eating meat, but i want the challenge of having a meatless diet so that i will have to insert more fruits and vegetables into my diet.
I have been surfing the web and preparing different recipes for the new year and i am really excited, the cuisine is full of indian, japanese, and other ethnic food influences and i am so ready to get out of the food rutt i have been in. I'm looking forward to using spices that i have never used.....bring on the chana masala!
Old pic....eatin' me some pork rinds.....
If, after the 30 days, i feel really good, i may stick with it. I know the challenge it will be to keep up with it, but i am preparing myself, and i am diligently studying the options that i have for proteins. I have support too, and that is important. Me and the BFF are embarking on this together, we are even cutting out refined sugars!! That is going to be difficult! I love me some pastries! But I know this will help my overall health.
After a good holiday season filled with ham, and goodies, bring on the veggies.
Here is a great website full of info on going veg! http://www.goveg.com/

The world is best seen through the window of a moving van.
Routine and me don't get along, they never have. I can't explain why, all I know is it is very difficult for me to be in the same place doing the same things over and over. It is a part of life, i know this and I have come to terms with it.
It seems that the musicians life-style is most ideal for me...its the perfect mix of a nomadic life aswell as the firm ground of the people you love around you...i know this lifestyle can get old too, but it has always been difficult for me to stay in one place for too long. I imagine i would want to have a place to come home to, but after a short time i would be itchin' to get out again. My husband is the same way, its a great thing for us both to have these feelings, although sometimes he is more of a home-body than me.
The picture below is of the new additon to my family... Marty Reginald Mcfly. He is much bigger now and quite a mischevious little fellow. He is very sweet, loving, and very entertaining. He doesn't have a tail, and he meows a lot.
