Attack of The Festivals!!

This weekend, it was as if the City of Chicago decided to get all of their festivals out of the way so that all they’d have to worry about was The Taste, and Lollapalooza. In no particular order, there is: RibFest. Old Town Art Fair. Andersonville Fest. Blues Fest. Printers Row Lit Fest. Plus assorted fests in the ‘burbs. Not to mention that this was the weekend Children’s Memorial decided to move to their new location downtown, so they shut down an entire street to shuttle ambulances back and forth. Needless to say, today was a long day at work trying… I’m not done yet.

Here’s the short version: I woke up for no reason at 3:30am, went to work, came home at noon, movers came, movers moved, I went back to clean the old apartment after all was said and done, I just got back now. Here’s the longer version: When I am old, I can taunt youngins with, “When I was your age, I had to move from one place to… I’m not done yet.

Back to Basics.

I’m spending tonight at my parent’s house. I feel like I’ve been doing that more often lately. It’s weird in a way. You spend so much time when you’re younger just waiting to leave, to live on your own, to do your own thing – only to grow up some and enjoy spending time with your parents. It took a while to get here today. Work was crazy, and I’m still not done with everything I had to do. I tried to catch a train at 4:40, but as soon as I rushed out of work I knew I was… I’m not done yet.
