Oh hey there, again.
Sorry to have been away from my laptop. I’ve been distracted with so many activities!
Like meeting up with Heather to listen to her tales of running the Chicago marathon last Sunday. To be honest, I have no intention of ever running anything longer than a half marathon, but I do love to hear about the training that goes into it and how much fun race day is.
Heather comes to Chicago to visit her sister often, however, we continued to miss each other. It would have happened again because I was frolicking through the historical city of Boston last weekend, but she and the fam happened to stay through Monday, so I got all the good details.
Congrats, Heather, on finishing yet another marathon!
The girl is fabulous.
I’ve also been reading over the past week in order to be of value to the discussion at the book club Lauren invited me to. The Book Thief was finished on the train home, and I would most definitely recommend it. However, it was terribly sad. So I didn’t mind finishing the book and then starting into the drinking portion of the evening.
None of us had done a book club before, except for one girl, so we were a little clueless as to what to do. But we were sure drinking and food were to be involved. Like duh.
The Book Thief was set in Nazi Germany over the course of World War 2. So the conversation wasn’t super happy-go-lucky (hence the need for more wine), but it was interesting to hear all of the different views on the book, the history surrounding it, etc.
We all patted ourselves on the back for being more well-rounded and cultured because of it. And stuff. Like totally.
And if that wasn’t enough, I’m even going to a museum this weekend. A museum! To learn about stuff! Check me out!
All this education and culture is making me twitch.
Excuse me as I check to make sure Jersey Shore is set to dvr tonight…
