Would You Look At This


When I got back from Vegas, I spent days, maybe even weeks, just thinking about Vegas and going back and just wanting to be on vacation again. Days went by slow... and I hated everything about the world I was living in.

I didn't have time to get sentimental about Chicago because the second I got back, I was thrown full force back into life. The past week has been a giant blur. I honestly can't even tell you what happened on which day, but I do know that Chicago feels like a million years ago and when I would think of it randomly I'd say, "Oh my god, that was last weekend! Life was so simple then!"

My office moved last week. We left our Canal Street space and moved across the street to North Washington street. Monday through Wednesday was spent packing. Tuesday evening was spent drinking... large amounts of alcohol... with co-workers... which made Wednesday probably the most anxious day of my life. Waking up hungover and then having to go to work and pack an entire office (spread across 2 floors) by 2pm is not fun.

And then I smashed my finger between recycling bins. And then I went to the dentist and they told me they may have to re-do my root canal - which is great considering the first one took FOUR HOURS. And I thought the "Twilight" movie was awful. And I worked two managing shifts at IA, which was actually not all that bad, but exhausting when going on 18 hour days.

Basically, I'm surprised I'm still standing. I think it shows a lot for my sanity and how far it has come. In the past, I would have been crying every night and all through the day dreading everything... but this time I looked at myself in the mirror and said, "Listen girl, you can complain all you want but it STILL has to get done. So deal with it and do it and be happy when it's over." Except I didn't actually do that, but I did think it.

I have no reason to be upset with life. Plus, the new office is amazing! And my arms are stronger from all that heavy lifting and moving around.

Thanksgiving is next week... and it's great. I get to sit home for a day or two and not do a THING.
