"Poor Me" is Back!

February 27th, 2015 at 01:52 pm

"Poor Me" is the one who drives to work, and buys fast food, when the weather is bad and the road is long.

I drove this morning not only because it was cold, but yesterday my train home was an hour late due to mechanical problems. When it finally came, all the extra power was off, so there was no light, no heat. It was a pretty miserable trip. So "Poor Me" decided to drive today! I bought a $3 breakfast on the way. Last night I bought a $5 dinner, using a 1/2 price coupon for an Italian deli near the station. I had a really delicious corned beef on rye, so I'm not regretting that decision at all. Especially since it turned out I didn't get home until 7.

I'm really glad it's Friday. It's been a grueling week.

Tomorrow morning I've promised to go to the Field Museum for a meet-and-greet event. Not sounding fun right now, and when I think of the parking cost! And the food! At least I won't have to pay to get in.

And I'm sure I'll enjoy it once I'm there.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

    That is miserable. As someone who has lived through several Chicago winters and taken the train, the no heat and no light is rough.

    I can just imagine how miserable a train ride that must've been!
