That hasn't happened in a while

Last week I was asked to run sound for my dh's group, Heart's Journey.  It seems that they had exhausted all their other options and I was the last one they had! lol  You would think that that would upset me, but it didn't.  I don't mind being the very last option in this kind of thing.

I used to run sound for them on occasion about a hundred years ago!  Before kids, or at least so many of them anyway. heehee

So, I give myself an ulcer fretting and stewing about having to do this gig.  My dh and his group are pretty particular about the way that they sound.  (I mean that in the nicest way possible!)  It's very intimidating.  Plus, I am going to have all four kids along for the ride.  Oh yeah, I also have to get them up at 6:15 AM to travel to where we are going.  Good times all the way around!

Yesterday, Sunday, was the day.  It went really well.  There were a few sound problems because it was an in-house sound system that no one really knew how to run.  But we managed.  The guys did a great job!  But, they always do.  I was a nervous wreck and by the time it was over I needed a good long nap.

Hopefully I won't have to do that again anytime soon.  lol Not that I don't enjoy having things my way and bossing people around, I do, I just don't enjoy being the one that has to figure out what the problem is with the sound and how to fix it; 'cause I can't!  I can just make them sound the way I like them, I don't know anything else.

In other words, if you have a gig that needs a sound guy--DON'T CALL ME!

It sounds like it was a fun time, and what a blessing to the band to know they have the ultimate backup sound(wo)man--even if it's the LAST thing she wants to do (heehee).

I am so glad that I don't have that sort of thing going on!

Thanks for stopping by and looking forward to reading more.

Hey Renita! - So sorry we were out of town for a wedding. Eric would have loved to run sound for the guys. In fact, I think he wanted to see if we could try to come back in time - but there was just no way. I'm glad you survived.

Melissa, tell Eric that I hold him personally responsible! Nah, just kidding. It was fine. It sure is nice to have Eric there though, then they don't even look in my direction! :-)
