Carrie and I at the local Chick-Fil-A.
I’ve had a busy week.
This past weekend, my mother and sister flew in for a visit! My mother’s visited me here before, but this was my sister’s first trip to South Bend. I couldn’t wait to show her my favorite places and introduce her to a few of my friends!
I’m absolutely horrible when it comes to recapping specific events in my life. I usually can’t detail a day by day account of a vacation, as I like to remember snippets and highlights instead. Sometimes, for posterity’s sake, I feel I should make more of an effort to capture events as they happen, but I’ve gotten lazy. Plus, my sister has written a day by day account of her time out here, so now I don’t feel I need to! (See? Yes, I am lazy. And not afraid to admit it.)
Standing outside of Lou Malnati’s with my family… and Kelly!
Either way, I enjoyed seeing my mother and sister for five days. We went to the Lighthouse Place outlets in Michigan City, tasted wine at the Tabor Hill winery, and met up with my college roommate Kelly and her boyfriend in Chicago, where we indulged in deep dish pizza at Lou Malnati’s and journeyed up to the top of the John Hancock building.
My poor, poor car.
The only bad thing about their trip here? On Friday, after driving home from the winery, I was rear ended while trying to turn left into my apartment complex. We were hit pretty hard, and my car is pretty damaged, but we are all okay. My car, unfortunately, is not; it’s in the shop now and it will take three long weeks to repair. For now I am driving a rental and hoping that the other guy’s insurance will cover the cost. I miss my poor car.
I have very big news, but I cannot announce it just yet. I’m hoping to write about it later on this week. I’m excited about my news, and if anyone who reads this already knows about it, don’t let the cat out of the bag until I post about it publicly! Either way, good things are happening.
