Friday: I drove from Chicago to Valparaiso, IN to pick up Kelly H. Then we drove down to Indianapolis to see John Mayer (aka my boyfriend). Driving from Indianapolis to the venue took us TWO hours. EEEEK. After the fabulous concert, it took us 2 hours to get home (minor glitches, really) and so we didn’t fall into bed until 2 a.m.
Saturday: We woke up early in the morning and played with Kelly’s nieces (we stayed at her sister’s house). After that, we left at 10 a.m. and stopped for lunch at Cracker Barrel. And THEN the fun began. I called the traffic expert, Frank, to find out which route we should take back into Chicago. The debate was between 80/94 or the skyway. Frank said to take the skyway because it is always open. Apparently that might be true during the weekdays, but during the weekend–HOLY COW!!! The road was soooo incredibly backed up and it took us 1 hour to go 2 miles. We were NOT happy campers to say the least. We decided to forego going back to my house and decided to stop at a gas station to change before going out for the night. We got to see a band we loved in college and experience Pork Fest at McGee’s. Good times!
Sunday: It was another early day because Frank’s family was having a shower for us. We arrived at the lake at 11 a.m., just in time to meet and greet the first guests. We didn’t leave Frank’s house until 7 p.m. Boy were we tired!!
Monday: I spent the late morning, afternoon and evening working on things around the apartment. It was so much fun!! I got a lot accomplished and was pretty pleased with myself. Yay!
Today I am back in the office. I am QUITE tired. It may be the food that I ate… not sure…
Only 38 days to go!!
