After the holidays .. things usually slow down, but I don’t sit still. I’m back on the basement project that I started about three years ago. Up until a week ago .. you could barely walk down there. I had a path that you could almost navigate … but it was a mess. It will be nice to find things again .. I’m usually pretty organized, often being compared with Monk .. the obsessive compulsive detective .. if you watch the show, you’ll get it.
I still have shows on the weekend .. and I’m preparing for a road trip at the end of the month to Ohio. In just four days I hit as many stops as possible. The journey begins in Vandalia Ohio, then to Columbus for Magi-Fest. From there I’ll cruise up to Bowling Green to visit a friend and back home on Superbowl Sunday. Who knows … maybe the Chicago Bears will be playing .. we can only hope.
My mother has been doing better .. I’ve taken her out during the week for some dinner and shopping. She lives to shop .. so it’s good she’s getting out again. The weather in the Chicago area has been pretty amazing for this time of year. We haven’t seen snow in a month or so .. and that’s fine with me. At night I’ve been catching up on some of my shows on DVD. I have so many still sealed in plastic .. I probably won’t live long enough to see them all. Lately I’ve been watching the Sopranos .. and if you didn’t guess, my family is Italian. I love hearing the old language .. it’s been a long time since I worked in the produce department of my dad’s grocery store. We may have had the largest concentration of Italians working for us in the Chicagoland area. It was a good time while it lasted .. but we’ll save that story for later.
See nothing too depressing this time around ..
