for those who are in or around sane

Friday, January 27

so i know i havent blogged in a while. it's been a rollercoaster of events over the past few weeks... i got a job at a publishing house, which i love thus far, it pays decently and has great benefits. so i've been busy trying to find "business casual" attire in my wardrobe (very difficult after 3+ years of employment at a "completely casual" facility), busy keeping in touch w/ friends in MN and busy making new friends in IL.

the bad news: 1. Wally Szczerbiak was traded in the lousiest trade i've seen EVER. ohhh wally, i shall mourn your loss... and your pretty face... 2. i got the "wrong" cta pass - i should have gotten the one that automatically deducts from your checking account. 3. i have to drive 45 min to get to work now.

the good news: 1. b & i are all set up and love the neighborhood - so please come visit!! 2. i've managed to make the transition from small nonprofit to big corporation smoothly. 3. i'm on an intrermurual volleyball team, on which i suck, but everyone else does too, and we go out for dollar burgers afterwards.

i'm still sad about leaving the cities and my friends behind. i'm sick of constantly meeting new people. i got so sick of it that last saturday, instead of going out and socializing, i went to my mom's house to eat supper with her and get a big fat hug. i need a bit of familiarity. b is great for that. i dont think this would have been as easy or fun if i didnt have her w/ me. but frankly, i want my old schedule back. on wednesday night, i had a sneaky suspicion that something was wrong, that i was forgetting to do something. and i was - i was not able to attend Writing Group w/ Lo. yes, we did manage a 45 min conversation via phone, but it wasnt the same.

i have had more ideas to write about, but with my schedule as busy as it is, i havent had a chance to get them down on "paper" (ha, what an expression these days - i only type my thoughts now, who needs paper??).

so it's friday, and sarah & colette are visiting b & i overnight! i'm sure we'll enjoy the 3am feedings... ain't she cute? she's my first friend baby, and i'm sure she'll be terribly spoiled by her eager "aunts". :o)

I agree that it was not the same to have a 45 min. conversation in spite of the fact that our "writing group" has mostly been our "socializing time" for awhile now. It was, however, really nice to talk to you because, believe it or not, I felt pretty lost without our five (? has it been that long?) year ritual, too. I miss you, but I'm glad you're settling in. Don't worry; it won't take too long for the new people you're meeting to become familiar people. :)
