I finally have a free moment to post. After two long grueling days driving for almost 1300 miles, I finally made it back to Chicago.
I felt like I never left. Dark clouds loomed over the city as I approached. The never-ending shades of gray bore down on the buildings and lake. A slight drizzled added to the muck from the love bugs that collected on my windshield and front grill. Another car wash awaits.
I was lucky to find a parking spot just across the street of my building. Dressed in only a muscle shirt and jeans the damp air hit me like an icy kiss as shivers ran up my spine. Will winter ever leave here? A good thing I thought ahead and throw on the hoodie I had placed on the passenger seat.
It's always good to be home after a long trip, but lugging in months of packages and the over-expanded wasn't a fun welcome home.
I just checked the weather for the week... I looks like cold, grey, thunderstormy skies all week. Today has an sunny and 80 degree forecast, but somehow the overcast skies looks to me like the will win out over the sun desperately trying to force its way through.
Thank you all for your safe wishes. As you can see, they worked. The drive was LONG but not too much drama besides a lot of construction in Kentucky.
I hope all the MOTHERS had a wonderful Mother's Day! You have the hardest job of all and should be appreciated more than one day a year.
I'm also sorry I haven't visited all of you in a few days, but now that I am home I hope to play catch up.
May today bring all that you desire!
