I spent yesterday in Newport with my best friend. Well, it was me, Courtney, her kids, and my mom and brother. Despite the crowd and chaos, it was still amazing to have time with her. We added to our friendship bracelet collection because we are total nerds.

I’m putting this out there in the event you never hear from me again…

As I was putting away trash cans, my neighbor walked over and asked if she could touch my head. Apparently it’s obvious my force is off, and she did the favor of restoring it.

Or maybe she just cursed me.

Life Lately

My life is very mundane: Up at 5:30, at work by 7:20, at the gym by 6:30, home by 7:45, in bed by 10:00. Rinse. Repeat. I’ve been making an effort to enjoy life - family, friends, summer, Chicago - more as I was in a serious funk.

Family:
My mom received an award from Cardinal George. It was one of the happiest days of her life and I’m glad most of us were around to celebrate with her.

Mani/pedi/crafts/Frozen/pizza/cupcake day with my nieces. As always, they are the best.

Friends:
Drinks with my friend a few Fridays ago reminded me how the South Side never changes but is always fun for a night. Seriously one night only, Beverly.

Last Friday we headed to a Cubs game with some friends: sun, alcohol and karaoke proved a winning combination.

Feted a co-worker at her baby shower. The celebration, and view, we’re beautiful.

Missing IRL connection with friends, and I’m making plans to change that.

Chicago:
I’ve been making an effort to take advantage of Chicago summer awesomeness. I headed to Steppenwolf for This Is Our Youth; great staging and acting.

July brought a basement full of sewage, but I’m not taking it as sign that the month is off to a shitty start. More fun to come.
