Honeys, I'm home!
Travel and adventures are fun, exciting and enlightening, but nothing beats the feeling of walking through your own front door!
I made it back to Colorado safe and sound. I'm quite happy to be here... and tired. Good lord, I didn't expect to be so tired. It's only 8:00 pm and I could go to bed right now. I slept plenty last night, and the time different between here and Chicago is only an hour... but I guess travel is more work than I think - especially when lugging around a 50-pound suitcase... plus an over-stuffed carry-on, plus a purse...!! Um, yeah, the whole "not over packing" thing didn't quite work out. Next time.
My roommate moved out while I was gone (sad!!), but she left me lots of food, so I don't have to go to the grocery store (score!). I have gas in my car, so I don't have to go do that. I don't have any cash to do laundry, so that has to wait (not that I have energy for that, anyway, so no tears about that). When I went through my stack of mail, the August issue of Glamour magazine was waiting for me (double score!), so I'm going to kick it on the couch for a couple hours with my mag, fighting off sleep until a reasonable time.
I have more reflective thoughts brewing about my overall experience in Chi-town, but I'm too tired to organize them right now... off to the couch with me and my magazine!
