I’m writing this blog as I sit in O’hare waiting to a catch a plane back home. I spent an amazing day in downtown Chicago catching up with Ash W, celebrating an amazing bride-to-be and had 35 hours of KID FREE FUN.
I had a lot of revelations last weekend and I thought I’d share in this week’s “Funny Friday” post:
1- I’m old. I can’t tell you how many times this came up with my friends this weekend. We had such a good time making fun of our conversations about our ailments, my babies, breast feeding and jobs. What a difference scene then in college. Instead of painkillers for anticipated hangovers we packed Tums for heartburn. I traded in a cute purse for my pump in the airports. We couldn’t get over how close everyone got a the bar and we had a serious discussion about how we all hate hash tags and don’t understand Twitter. I am also going to go ahead and admit that I brought hand sanitizer to the BAR.
2- I hate pumping. I never minded being chained to the pump, I also have never flown while nursing. Pumping in a bathroom stall at the airport was gross…WHY can’t they at least put a chair in the restrooms? I seriously thought about asking for a wheel chair so I could go into the handicap stall and at least have a comfy seat. You better believe I busted out that hand sanitizer again.
3- I like bedtime. There is nothing better then rolling in at 3am and knowing you have your OWN bed to yourself. My roomie (and good friend since grade school) and I couldn’t stop talking about how excited we were to have a bed all to ourselves. And of course I had the added bonus of no baby waking me up…I still only ended up with 4 hours of sleep.
4- I realized that every girl dancing on a table in a mini skirt and midriff top was guaranteed to have two things- a drink in their hand and a mom out there that would kill them for dancing like an idiot on a table. It scared me to death.
5- I turn into a 3 year old when I get into the back of a cab. I love talking to cab drivers. I quiz them on how many accidents they’ve been in, how long they’ve been driving in the city and if they drive with two feet or just one. FYI- cab drivers don’t like it when you try to give them directions. They also won’t talk to you after 2 AM.
