Wie Ghets

Today was my first day off in six days. I had plans to have breakfast with a good friend, clean the part of the condo Adam didn't get to, practice more German, and pick up a trip at work for Sunday. Well, I had breakfast with my friend but ended up hanging out with him much longer than I had anticipated (which was great) and then had a two and a half hour lunch with another friend who needed some company. I did succeed in cleaning up the rest of the condo (thanks for doing the bathroom baby) but I've yet to start any German and my board at work is still empty for Sunday. The German can slide but I HAVE to find something to work tomorrow.

Usually I listen to the internet radio while I surf the net, especially if I'm home alone or on a layover. More often than not it's 80's music. I know almost all the songs even though I was still a child during that decade. I've always said that I wish I had been in my twenties during the 80's.

Growing up in NE Ohio and now living in Chicago I've known nothing but five months of winter my entire life. Snow, wind, and bone chilling temperatures have been a way of life from my earliest memory...and I'm sick of it. Each year winter seems harder and harder for me to get through. We are off to Florida and then Hawaii in less than a week and I can't wait. I need to feel warmth and sun on my face. I also need for it to not take five minutes to put on a scarf, gloves, hat, and coat to go outside. It takes me less time to get dressed when I get out of the shower.
