it's a rap

i'm all keyed up
and restless
at 6:45 in the morning
maybe because we finished the old 97s record tonight
we've only been working on this
since october
i say finished
but there are probably some tweaks
and twiddles still to come
for all intents
and purposes
it's done
so i'm feeling a bit
but also dis-oriented
giving the band
"final mixes" felt good
i think we did some really good work
everyone involved did an awesome job
it was one of the best experiences
i've ever had making a record

this morning my head is racing
and spinning
with all the things i want to do in this new year
finish the cut-off record
last ones on earth
carter's record
go to austin
and make #4 with billy harvey
play more shows with the noise
go to europe again
on and on and on
etc. etc. etc.
yet as all these thoughts clobber
and crowd my psyche
i feel worn out
i want to take a vacation
that doesn't involve playing gigs
answering emails
or phones
or juggling calendars
maybe a rest should go to the top of the list?
i know it would do jayme even more good
than me

i have a precious day to spend with my son
so i'm going to try and go back to bed now
and get a couple more hours of sleep
i'd like to be able to enjoy my time with him
it promises to be a beautiful
sunny and 72 day
i'm going to try and not think about anything
other than having a nice day
with my 4 year old son

wish me luck....
