So it's been really hot this summer, if you haven't noticed, and I absolutely love it! I haven't complained of the heat until today really, because I am cold-natured and hate winter and being cold. So bring on the heat! But today, me and the boy went to meet some friends downtown for some Chicago style pizza, and I wore jeans and I was SO hot and sweaty and exhausted from the heat. Phew it made me so tired! So I am sitting in our nice central air apartment now trying to cool down. I really do love summer though, and try to sit out on my deck as much as I can. I want to soak in the heat while I can! I do not miss this. The scarves, gloves, ear warmers, and coat are not fun.
I need to go swimming this summer still. I really want to go to a water park, but I feel like I'm getting too old for those. But all the public pools in Chicago are probably PACKED with kids and parents trying to cool off, so I bet it'd just be annoying and not relaxing to swim. I remember going canoeing with my family a bunch when I was younger, and I'm starting to miss that, too. Living in the city makes me miss the peace and quiet of rivers and lakes and nature in general. Maybe when I go home for my bday weekend, I'll take a swim in Deam Lake or somewhere. I like the city and all, but I need my outdoors fix, too.
We've been eating out a lot lately, but I try to go buy some groceries every other week so we can spend less money by eating in every once in a while. It may sound weird, but I miss Arby's. I never even used to eat there that much, but I love those roast beef's. MMmmmm. And I miss Chick-fil-A. There are so many food choices here, but yet I still miss those crappy fast food joints. Ahh well if we ever move back, I'm sure I'll miss the food here. I'll never be satisfied!! I do want some ice cream right now......Dairy Queen blizzard? Margies hot fudge sundae? Cookies and Cream Ice Cream from the grocery? So many choices.
