Four short days in a time zone only one hour different from my own, and my internal clock is kaput. Well, it was never very reliable in the best of times – for example, there’s no alarm at all. But last night I tossed & turned & this morning I did not want to get up. However, I did manage to get to work on time – I can’t stand not knowing what’s going on so I always look forward to my first day back. I just wish it started around noon instead of 8:30.
I really did enjoy our time in Chicago – and now I’d like to plan a trip back to check out all the stuff we missed this time. Dr. M had memorized the map of the area around our hotel so we didn’t have any trouble getting around (yes, he is one of those people, whereas I instinctively head in the wrong direction about 85% of the time). I just need to get in better physical shape so I can do more walking. But not down that Miraculous Shopping Mecca Mile or whatever it’s called – sure it’s all shiny & pretty, but I don’t like to shop. I didn’t mind looking in the windows, but that’s as far as I was going to go.
We drove home yesterday, meandering through Indiana. It was a nice way to get back into my farm country groove. Plus, the convenience store where we got gas had Cadbury Eggs – score! I know they’re left over from last Easter, but still…
Lastly, look what Dr. M found! If you don’t hear from me for a while you’ll know why – ha!
Well, here’s hoping that last night’s restlessness translates into lots of beauty sleep tonight – heaven knows I need it!
P.S. I promise to get caught up on my blog reading soon!
