Ok, I know it’s been a while. Let’s not be all awkward about it.
But don’t think of it as a decrease in blogging. Think of it as an increase in my social calendar activity.
Glass half full, yes?
And as proof that I haven’t just been super lazy (ok, so there’s that, too), here’s what’s been going on around my ‘hood:
Seasons 52 is a neat place in the suburbs where every menu item is under 475 calories.
I think we all remember how I felt about that.
The 8-year-old in me nerded out.
Ok fine, the 27-year-old in me did, too.
Because you can’t be that close to the zoo and not go. Don’t be silly.
Then there’s always more dinner to be had with even more friends. And being as how I seem to have a friend who’s a boy who happens to live next to some of my girlfriends, I get to see them all at once.
Which can get weird when you’re one of maybe 2-3 people left in the car (or, as seen above, the last person) and one guy across the aisle seems to be taking pictures of you on his phone.
But it beats being crammed onto the el and smelling the coffee breath of the 5-6 people you’re surrounded by.
Anyway… something shiny… what?
It’s maddening we never went there before I moved. I had a sandwich, fries, and a bit of a buzz for just over $10.
The summer sun did a number on the color of my hair. And I was bored and feeling impulsive.
So yeah… it’s not you. It’s me. I’ve been busy.
Let’s try to make this work. We’ve come this far. And I love you. I just need some space sometimes.
Please cue some Al Green, “Let’s Stay Together”.
Happy Thursday, kids.
