I'm so boring lately, and the next 4 weeks aren't so bright.

I’m feeling truly bored lately.  I mean, I have my new blog (as compared to my old blog) to mess around with and I have all these ideas of what I want to do, but I’m not really doing them. We haven’t been out with friends for a few weeks.  I’m not sure what the deal is.  Just winding down summer I suppose.  Not even any big weekend plans…  maybe some more shopping (curtain hardware) with the coupons Karin sent and of course football!  (Go Packers!) And of course laundry, cleaning, and packing…

Monday I leave for the greater Chicago area for 4 weeks (Home 2 weekends).  I say “greater Chicago area”, because it’s not Chicago. It’s a suburb a half hour northwest of O’Hare.  People keep telling me how great Chicago will be.  But the truth is Chicago (and the people I love there) will not be that accessible when working a 10-11 hour day.  (sigh.) And being on the road always provides the challenge of eating healthy, which I have been trying to do.

I am however looking forward to the 3rd weekend when I am staying.  Girl’s weekend with Karin and Heather. Karin lives in Chicago and Heather is flying in (from MN, but I don’t see her often enough here) too. Plus maybe I can see Aunt Marilyn at some point.  We’ll see. I’m sure the 4 weeks will fly by and I will enjoy being away from my desk duties in Lakeville.

Of course the hardest is being away from Chad (and I worry that he is eating chips and salsa for dinner every night.)  

One thought on “I'm so boring lately, and the next 4 weeks aren't so bright.

  1. Hi there! You’re the second person I know now that is commuting between Minneapolis and Chicago these days. Very tiring!

    My mom lives in Minneapolis these days and works at the IDS building (I just call it the Little Tiara Tower or baby skyscraper). 🙂

    Hope you get to go to downtown Chicago sometime with your friends; so much to do!
