Though I have been absent for much of this week, we did make it back from New York with only a one day delay. We even made it back an hour early -somewhat of a miracle for a Chicago airport. It may have had something to do with the Shamu plane we were flying in.
I didn’t actually take that photo (how did you ever know!), and I almost even missed the decorated exterior until BMB pointed it out as we were boarding. Though I would have caught on when we got on the plane and saw the baggage bins.
This week has been fairly normal. Ran the 9 mile midweek marathon training run along the same lakefront path.
Today I spent a few hours in the morning at the pool before meeting up with this gentle giant for lunch.
See that building? That’s the reason I’m at the pool today. My new place of employment. 3 glorious blocks from our apartment. I drove the commute to work yesterday wearing my magic eye dress for the last time, and put in my two weeks notice this morning. I feel like a free woman, and will be going to a company that I interviewed with when we first moved but didn’t get the job at the time. This time I got it. Goodbye road rage, slalom course garage, and nylons. I will not miss you. I will miss my Caesar wraps, but the ability to go home for lunch will ease the pain. Heck, I even will have time to let a hypothetical dog out.
