I’ve been staring at this blank screen for a good 10 minutes, knowing that I should write, but having nothing to write about. I didn’t finish blogging about our road trip because, to be quite honest, the last two days were pretty uneventful. We did a lot of driving to make up for the little progress we made on day two, and rolled into Chicago on Tuesday evening, a day earlier than originally planned! We unloaded the car, had a few drinks at a local restaurant, slept on the floor of my sister’s studio apartment, and I headed to the airport the next afternoon. Honestly, it was a whirlwind of exhaustion. I came home to an empty house (Geoff had left that morning for a week) fed the cats, and went to bed.
The next few days passed in a blur. I worked 11 hours on Friday, spent most of Saturday and Sunday out of the house, keeping busy, and have been relaxing and watching Rugrats when I’m home. Don’t judge me, I haven’t had the brainpower to focus on Grey’s Anatomy.
On Sunday I did have an “I lost 20 pounds” pedicure with a friend, and I cleaned the carpets a bit with the $25 carpet cleaner I picked up on Craigslist. It works, but it takes forever (mostly because I’m using it on high traffic spots). I’ve pretty much convinced myself that we need some professionals to come in and take care of it. I mean, let’s be honest. Who really buys cream carpeting? It’s just not a good idea.
Anyway, bear with me as I get my bearings and figure out what I want to post about. I’ll be back with my regularly scheduled posts soon, I promise.
