We had a great weekend. First, a successful first cookout at our house with our newly acquired Chicago friends. They met each other for the first time and actually seemed to have fun. The dog was good, I didn’t fuck up the food, and everyone played cornhole and chatted till well past the published end of our Facebook event.
Then, yesterday we nursed our hangovers and Caroline watched Scream and Terminator 2 for the first time. (She’s 90’s pop culture stunted. I’ve taken it upon myself to help her.) We ate what we wanted, finished the leftover beers, and played Magic the Gathering (because inside we are both 12 year-old boys).
Today, my new boss gushed over how happy she is with me. Chicago was beautiful. I had a nice convo with my little brother. And, I get to go home to my amazing wife and some homemade Greek burgers.
I don’t even know what to do with myself. 🙂
