Scruff McGruff is in Hiding

We’re all settled into life here in Chicago.  Well,  as settled as we can be for being here for a week.  Which, if you know me at all, means we’re unpacked and have all the decor set just right.

I’m ready for visitors.  I wish I could have a housewarming party.  I’ve always kind of had an urge to have one but never really ended up putting plans into motion.  Now that we’re so doggone far away from everyone it’s even more difficult.  For now you’ll just have to stare at this photo of our dining room and pretend that you’re here sipping on a drink that’s way too strong and having a grand old time.

By the way, I haven’t had a strong drink since we’ve been here.  Just drinking beers if you believe that or not.  Drinking beers and hanging out.  That’s what I’m doing until I start my glamorous new Chicago job next week.  That and eating a ton.

Speaking of which, when in a new city Yelp can be your best friend.  I’ve yet to find a Ritz Koney alternative but we’re doing okay on the exploring front.  I’m loving this cheap hot dog joint down the street from us.

We’re just looking forward to spring time when life gets a lot more happening around these parts.  And visitors begin to ooze in the front door.  I’m not sure why you’re oozing in, but you are.  And now I have a terrible mental image. Ew.

On that note….I’m going to go live my glamorous new life wherein I help John play video games.
