I’ve felt a little overwhelmed the last few days but I fighting my way back. I am not over eating but the carbs are back for the last few days. Maybe I can get back on the wagon after the kids start school but right now I’m going non-stop and have very little time to myself. I’m using what ever time I have to get to the gym. I just got my period which might also be part of the trouble.
I was so grumpy yesterday I fell asleep at 7:30 last night and slept for 12 hours, unheard of for me. But I feel much better this morning. I must have needed the sleep, I know my kids would agree!
Yesterday I got my 2 younger ones up early and we went up to Central Park to see the last Concert of the Summer for Good Morning America. Lady Antebellum was playing. My husband has worked sound for all the summer concerts this summer. He thought this one would be less crowded plus he got us some passes, so off we went.
Our backstage pass
It rained most of the week but Friday was beautiful no humidity and not too hot just a perfect day for being outside. Chris had to be at work at 1am he said it was actually cold at night.
It was nice being able to have someone walk us in and get a spot next to the stage. The kids watched Chris set up the sound and wave to them.
I took this on my phone as we watched the set up. Chris was moving so he is the blur walking away from the piano!
After they finished the sound check. we walked “backstage” and meet all the people Chris has been working with all summer. All very nice and friendly. A good thing if you have to work all night with someone! Chris loves working with the crews from the Country bands they are always very polite and friendly.

At this point the kids decided they were hungry so we set off to the food tent. almost everything and everyone was gone so the kids got some bagels and juice and headed to the sound truck.

Declan loved the truck the best. He watched David Muir who was in for George Stephenopolos when he wasn’t on air. He thought it was so funny seeing him just being. He kept making faces at him thinking he could see him, maybe he thought it was like Skype.
After that we went to the very back of the stadium to see Wedge. The kids love him, he came over earlier in the summer and taught them how to make pizza. He offered to have them stay and mix sound with him during the show but I think they are just too young to understand or enjoy that yet. So sorry my oldest wasn’t there.
Wedge is the one working hard on the right
The kids spent most of the actual concert in the back. That way they could run around free and not bug the people who were there to really listen.

They can make it look so full on TV.
It was great fun. So much security, even a bomb sniffing dog. You can see 2 of the security officers in the last picture. But this show was filled with friendly people enjoying the day, the beautiful weather and good music.
