Well, it’s official. The entire McAdams clan is down for the count. My husband was the last to fall. He’s missed about 3 days of work in the 17 years I’ve known him. He’s home today. We cry Uncle, you flu bug, Uncle.
I’ve got a few very exciting things to announce coming in January, but I can’t do that until, well, until everyone says I can. I can say I’m playing the Des Moines Marathon for the first time! My husband has run the full marathon for the last 10 years … but he’s not running it this year, and I will be there … what kind of coincidence is that? He’s got foot trouble and I’ve got a new album to sell. I guess we’re trading places. I will be playing at the coveted Mile Marker 7, at the foot of the Salisbury House, so I’ll get to see both the Half and the Full marathoners.
I’m also playing the Metro Expo this year at Hy-Vee Hall. I’ll be there Sunday, November 8, from 2-4 p.m. It will be me with James Biehn on guitar! I love this gig. Come out and get your Christmas shopping started and support the arts.
I’m off to do a 2:30 phoner with Mindy Hoskin to finalize the website design. I put it off and put it off but Mindy kept gently reminding me and steering me back to it. Now that I see her design, I’m so excited about it and wonder why I kept putting it on the back burner. Working with Mindy and Derek has been a blast and positively painless! If you’ve ever built a website … you know it is rarely painless. This has been the exception. Hire the talent, it’s worth it.
