Hi there. It’s been a wonderful week in the real world, but I’ve been a little quieter than normal here on the internet. Here’s three real-life updates for you!
- I’m still having some tech troubles. I bought a new laptop early last fall, and while it is quite good-looking, I’m finding Windows 8 to be incredibly frustrating when problem solving. I’ve been running tons of diagnostics and we ended up buying a new wireless router, but I’m still not connecting at 100% and I have to re-enter my wireless network password every single time I turn on my computer and hope that I’ll connect. It’s annoying, and I’m on the hunt for a solution. (If you’ve experienced this error please comment here so I can benefit from your solution!)
- I was really excited to watch Morning Joe’s coverage of the 100th Birthday of Wrigley Field yesterday — did you see it? I went to my first cubs game earlier this month and even though I typically find baseball pretty boring, I had a wonderful time! Wrigley Field was old-school in all the right ways. [Sorry SS. I know how much you love the Cardinals.] Also, I’ve selected a new catch phrase for Chicago weather: Ernie Banks’ weather assessment on a chilly, sunny morning: “Let’s play two!”
- As the days get sunnier, I’m loving Chicago more and more. We had a few warmer days last weekend (Easter Sunday was the most beautiful day I can remember!) and now that it’s cooler again, my fellow Chicagoans have been mumbling in the elevators about how chilly it is. But I don’t even care! A cold sunny day is my favorite kind of day.
I’m doing some work behind-the-scenes to hopefully build an even better space for you here, but that work is slow and time consuming so don’t worry if it takes a few more weeks before you start to notice. I’m still here, and posting regular updates to the blog’s facebook page, so be sure to stay in touch!
