leaving

I can't believe my time at home has come to an end already. It feels like I just got here. It's been great, I got to see a bunch of my favorite people in the whole world, ski, eat my face off, sleep, relax, recharge my batteries, drink a lot of wine...just BE HOME. I needed it, in a bad way.

Of course this whole weekend it's been about 60 in Chicago and it only made it into the high 30s here. And when I go back, the temperature is supposed to drop again. Awesome. Oh well. It was worth it.

I'm off to lunch with my sister and uncle and then heading up to Albany. I wonder if they have wifi in the Albany airport. I keep meaning to update and then I just don't, and I'd really like to change that.

We are in the middle of a severe weather/tornado warning. Apparently one just touched down in Elgin, west of Chicago. There's continuous thunder and lightning and wind. Yikes.

We are supposed to celebrate Adam's birthday tonight. Ominous?

I bought a $200 bottle of liquor today. It's the kid's birthday, he deserves something nice now that he's an old man.

Early this morning, it was snowing AND thundering and lighting, all at once. That storm meant business.

I need winter boots.

It's SNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWING!

Also, freezing. And hailing at times. Winter sure is mad people thought it wasn't coming to the party this year.

I remembered an old Disney movie the other day that I used to LOVE as a kid...it was about two hats, a fedora and a blue bonnet (Johnnie Fedora and Alice Bluebonnet! How adorable is that?!) who fall in love and then are separated when they're sold. Johnnie chases Alice all over New York City until finally they are reunited and live happily ever after. I could not for the life of me remember what it was called, and I googled it and found it and now I want this because it's on there and I know I'm never going to see it any other way.

Adam is at Anna's because they all had to "talk." Yikes.

I bought A Condfederacy of Dunces and Atlas Shrugged today at Barnes and Noble after spending 2 hours wandering around finding a thousand other books I want. I'm hitting the used bookstore ASAP to find everything I want for cheaper. Also, I need winter boots.

I am so full...we met up with OtherAdam at Goose Island down the street in Wrigleyville for dinner and I ate a burger AND fries, very effectively negating all the exercise I did today on the elliptical. I want one of those yoga balls so I can do crunches and other fun stretches at home. Of course as soon as I get it it's just going to sit in the study so I'm holding off until I absolutely HAVE TO HAVE IT. And then I'm going to wait some more. Y'know, just so I can really make sure that I want it.

I think it's time to curl up in bed with a book under my down comforter.

I am putting off going outside, as today is the first day since before Thanksgiving that it is not 60 degrees. In fact, it's supposed to be closer to 20, and apparently a big winter storm is on its way. We could get anywhere from 2 to 14 inches of snow according to the news last night. Go ahead, winter, do your thing.

Excuse me while I go layer.
