DJ and I left on Monday morning at about 9:30am. I figured since he had never driven in Chicago, we would miss all of the traffic if we left then. I was so so wrong. I was the lead and I somehow managed to ditch him leaving our damned neighborhood. How the hell does that even happen?!?!?! Not a good start. I finally had to call him and tell him to get his ass in gear. I told him I would slow down to 70 and he needed to kicked up to 80. He started complaining and I yelled at him. In a difficult situation, I will yell at you until you do what I want. Anna says it somehow has a soothing effect. Feel the sooth.
The traffic was so fierce at times that I thought to myself, well the boy had a good life and it was nice knowing him.
We stopped in IN and we went to my favorite Chinese buffet. This is what the kid looked like after driving through Chicago and then Gary. He looks older.
He brought the bedroom furniture that he had at home. It's heavy. Very heavy.
When the three roomies were deciding how to split everything, Cammie wanted her own bathroom. That was a good call. Lincoln wanted the biggest bedroom. Cammie got the second largest bedroom. DJ got the smallest bedroom and then claimed the fourth bedroom as a game room. They all got something.
This is his actual bedroom. He's happy and packed in there.
It was a hell of a trip and I managed to charge so much that I locked up 2 credit cards for fraudulent charges. That ate up 30 minutes to straighten out. But I was glad to be sitting. It was hot and I was tuckered out.
I'm back and sad. I have no kids at home. DJ's empty room isn't helping me any. But I will say that it is easy to clean. Anna did text and say that she has quite a bit of time off and can now plan a trip home. I suspect that Den had something to do with her text. It was almost perfectly timed. I'll be fine. I just need to fix up the room like I did Anna's.
I spent the end of the week trying to get caught up around here.
So what have you been up to lately? What did I miss in your world?
