My fever is gone, I'm on antibiodics, and I am feeling better. I still have a sore throat but I can tell that is getting better as well. I think just the thought of getting to see my family in a few days is helping my recovery.
I think we screwed ourselves pretty badly. We cancelled some shows to come home and get James' tooth fixed. If we had just done one more show, I think we would have gotten to spend this weekend home. Instead, we get to drive back to Colorado this weekend to make up our shows we missed. Although we would prefer to be home, I'm ok with that. I don't want another group making up our show for us. I don't think that is fair.
When our employer told us that he was sending us back, he sent me a TYPED fax saying that he was sending us back but would be more than happy to help us with gas.
James talked to him yesterday and it's amazing, somehow, he forgot he said that. Oh, but he'll reluctantly give us $50. That's so nice. That will get us there and not back.
Really, that isn't what I am upset about. That's typical. What I am upset about is that after our three shows in Colorado, we have to drive NINE hours to Emporia for a 9:30am show.
Our empoyer says the drive is only 5 hours, 6 at the most. We made the drive home and with us driving a little over the speed limit, it took 9 hours to Topeka.
On the other hand, we picked up a show in Emporia the Tuesday, Dec 21 and he is going to give us almost all of the money he get from that show. Can we get an advance on that so we can get home from Colorado? Just kidding, that just means one person in our family might get a Christmas present this year. Everyone put your names in a hat...
