Song of the week: Sleepyhead by Passion Pit

Week in Review: We went to the movies this week, together but not to the same movie. We actually split up to see films that the other had been to while we were apart. Josh took the in The Hobbit and I went to Birdman. Birdman deserves every Oscar nomination for performance it’s getting but I think it should stop there. It’s a really unique film and a different way to look at mental health issues. However I personally don’t like the genre of movie and TV shows about lives of actors. I can’t stand 30 Rock, I don’t find wealthy and famous people getting to shenanigans that have no connection to the real world interesting. That is not exactly what Birdman is but that part was distracting. Someone who is struggling with where their life has gone after some bad choices is interesting.

We also went to Wild, I highly recommend this book. I liked the movie and the book but especially the book. Both Josh and I have read it and enjoyed. I would be curious to hear from anyone who has seen the movie but not read the book, I wonder how they felt about her at the end.

Coming This Week – November 9th – 15th

Had I written this post last week it would have needed a major edit, both of our schedules changed last minute yesterday. I am on a flight to Florida, picking up the Animal Connections Tour in the Tampa area. I will be in Leesburg for two days then off to finish the week out in Venice for the Chalk Festival. Josh is in New Orleans for a few days and then off to Memphis and St. Louis later in the week, his project is not open to the public but if you are already going to a football game in one of those cities he would love a shout out. Week one being apart has been ok, a really change for us. Next is a bit unsure but I will start in Florida and probably head back to Detroit, Josh is going to Nashville, Durham and Knoxville.

Week in Review:

I spent last week in Detroit, wrapping up my previous tour and helping out on a cool project from the Detroit Art Institute called DIA Away. This truck will be going to schools all the Detroit area next year. Josh’s project was mostly undergoing movement and maintenance, a great way to get his hands dirty with a trailer neither of us have worked with. It is not the traditional double-expandable like we are usually with.

Coming This Week: October 26th – November 8th

I’m not sure how to make sense out of our upcoming schedule so I put up new calendar pages.  Josh and I are going to help out on separate tours until the end of the year.  I will be mostly in Detroit, sometimes joining Josh.  I will probably be in Chicago often too.  Josh will be doing some miles this week he hits Houston and Auburn, AL.  However before we return to work there are some adventures yet to be had.  First of all I am going to Ohio to get some R&R and we are ending the week with a BANG!  We have tickets to the see USA Rugby play the New Zealand All Blacks at Soldier Field in Chicago.  We are also going to be seeing tons of friends from all over the country who are also going.

Week in Review: Last week was wonderful, we spent time off the road relaxing with family.  There was some time to watch a movie and the choice was Gone Girl, we have both read the book (all of Flynn’s actually).  We are in disagreement of this one.  I loved it, he thought it was long.  If you have not read the book you will love it, if you have it’s a tossup.

Coming This Week: December 9 – 15

Definitely wrapping up our year quickly now.  We left Indy late last week and went back to Detroit.  This week we will finish up the preparations for taking the truck out again next year.  This coming weekend my family is getting together to celebrate the Holidays.  We are all meeting up at my uncle’s home in DeKalb.  Next week we will be in Dubuque sharing cheer and prepping for our big trip.

Coming This Week: November 25 – December 1

What a truly wonderful trip home we had, spent time with both families and all of the little ones.  My mother and I braved Black Friday, well not really, we went to Hallmark at 6:00am to buy ornaments.  Today we are making for Detroit to pick up our truck, it is getting moved down to Indianapolis for a few weeks.  We will stay down there while repairs are done.

Coming This Week: April 1 – 7

I am spending this week in Detroit, while Josh is in Memphis. He is filling in for some dear friends while they finish a deal to purchase a home. I do expect to see him Thursday when I pick him up (somewhere) to visit our families for Easter. I will have news shortly about a new tour and schedule.
