We went home this past weekend. It was really nice to spend some time at home with my mom. I got to go shopping with her and just be there with her and Dixie. I'm not as homesick as I was before so that's good. I still can't wait to go back, but I'm not as upset as I was.
While we were home, we went to a Blackhawks game. That was my Christmas present and it was AWESOME. We expected them to lose since they played the NY Rangers (and they're just good... and the Hawks kinda suck lately) but they won and it was fabulous. The whole day was awesome but that made it more awesome. Before we went to the game, we were super busy. I had an appointment with my cardiologist in the morning as a check-up... I ended up leaving with a 30 day event monitor. Love those. My heart has been racing on and off so he's having me record those moments. Now that I have the monitor it HASN'T been racing. Typical. But anyway... the appointment took a lot longer than I expected. I also had to go vote since we aren't going to be in town during the primary for Illinois. Got that done! After that we headed up to Des Plaines to check out a place that was on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It was called Paradise Pup... it's a small walk-up burger/hot dog place. It. Was. AMAZING. They use Merkt's spreadable cheese on their burgers. Ah-may-zing. That's all I can say. Awful for you, but incredible. After that, we had some time to kill before the Hawks game so we drove around downtown Chicago. I love that place, but I could never live there. Too much going on. After the driving around we went to the Bill Goat Tavern for drinks before the game. Fun fun fun! Then the game... then we went to our old place for drinks afterward. The bartender saw us walking up and got excited, haha. It was nice to go back there and it's nice to have a place where they know you and know your drinks and all that jazz.
Wow, I talk a lot. Now we're home and the weather is BEAUTIFUL. I ate like crap while we were gone but I'm trying to be good... taking advantage of the nice weather to spend time outside and go for walks and such.
OH OH OH good news... I have two interviews today! Both with Menards. One is for an accountant position and the other is for an auditor position. I'm hoping they both go well. I would love to have a job... and it doesn't hurt that you get to wear jeans there :) haha.
I wrote WAY too much just now so I think I'm good for a few days.

I'm sure it's water weight since I'm just getting back into it, but I'm down 3.6 pounds since last Monday. Woooo I'm awesome. It's nice to see the scale move... it's motivation to keep going. I can't wait until my clothes start fitting a little better.

I haven't been sleeping well and I think it's getting to me. I mean, I know I'm frustrated about not having a job but I think that's affecting everything. And I'm mega bored. And I'm pretty sure Jeff is tired of me. I can tell he just wants to have some time to himself but there is nowhere for me to go. Perhaps I'll have to figure something out.
On a good note, I've been pretty good and I'm proud of myself. Just need to keep this up.
