WARNING! Whine fest first then the Muck story. Thought I should warn you. It’s the right thing to do. ;-)
After coming home from a grueling day at the renaissance fair on Sunday, Andrew was a busy guy!
I’m just not up for 7 weeks of the ren fair, so this weekend was my last. It was too much for me to deal with at this time. Besides my hair looking like Monica’s on Friends when they went to the Caribbean, no exaggeration! It was insane how big and nasty my hair got. It was like having a big wad of pulled apart & teased cotton on my head! Ewwwwwwww! It was also the long grueling hours in the heat and the neck and back pain of standing a lot & walking around in big ass fairy wings!
Martin and I are wiped out! Yes, Martin was with me Sunday. He ran the turtle house & puppets. It was fun bantering back and forth but it was just too grueling. Plus I realized I’m not focused enough yet to take on something new for somebody else. I’m just not ready. I’m still cocooning and healing.
I had down, teary moments back stage when I was de-winged & de-crowned, taking a break. I was waaaay out of my comfort zone! Normally I’m not the kind of person to go up and start bantering with strangers to get them to watch me, I know hard to believe, but I’m not. I’m more comfortable when they buy a ticket, that way I KNOW they want to see me! So I am certainly not in the right frame of mind to step out of my comfort zone now. It was overwhelming for me.
I could handle doing my own show because it’s mine and NOT a 14 hour day in the heat! But to try and do something totally new, out of my comfort zone for 14 hrs.?? Yea, now is not the time to try it. If Martin and I could’ve done it together the whole time, we would’ve rocked it big time! I know if I was at a loss of words, I know, hard to believe, Martin would say something funny to say and save my ass. He is great at improv! But there just isn’t enough money it for us to put up with everything else. Altho I did make a kick ass Fairy Queen! :-D I looked awesome!
Ok, enough of the whinging & baaaa waaaaa-ing & on to Andrew. We finally got home after the hour drive home, did I mention it was also an hour each way?? Ooops, sorry, back to Andrew. Denise and I decided to go to Long Horns for dinner to see Elatia who I hadn’t seen in over a month & because I hadn’t eaten since 6:30a.m. I just couldn’t eat at the fair, geez I can’t stop whining! Anyhoo, while we were gone, Martin had some “interesting” things happen.
When Denise and I get back, Martin first starts off with the fact that Merlin talked to him. I didn’t think it was weird because Martin talks to bugs, right? SO why not the dog? LOL But this was freaking Martin out because he heard Merlin’s voice out loud and his “lips” were moving when Merlin said; “Where’s the Mommy?” ROFLMAO Obviously Martin was in the sun too long as well! But there’s more….
Also while we were gone, and Merlin was talking out loud, Martin was in the living room watching Dr. Who when he hears the tv go on in Andrew’s room. Sho enuf it was on. But no fairy light in the bathroom on. I went in Andrew’s room briefly to see the tv on from the side view.
Later after Denise went home I went into Andrew’s room to see what was on and I noticed something odd. When we came home from Minnesota on Tuesday, I straightened out his comforter from Elatia laying in his bed when we were gone. But now it looked like someone had been lying in the bed! NO ONE has been on his bed! AND not only was one of his fav shows on, Family Guy, but his fav episode when Stuie likes being disciplined by Lois. Muck’s favorite scene? When Stuie throws himself on the ground, spreads his legs and begs Lois to step on his cubes!! LMAO! I know!!! Mr. Avatar, Little Buddha, and that’s one of his fav shows and scenes! In fact, as I was typing this, Martin starts laughing because Andrew shows him that scene. Martin didn’t know what I was typing about.
When I came back today from getting my hair shampooed and blow dried from scary cotton, finger in light socket head to smooth and nice curls head, Muck turned on the fairy light.
Muck is working over time to make sure I know he is very much here with me. I deeply appreciate it but it’s not the same. BUT I am soooo happy he is doing it! He’s a good child!
IT’S ALL GOOD!
