Next week, Ian and I are going to try to purchase some tickets to the David Byrne show in Chicago on Oct. 26th! I'm going to use some vacation time and extend that weekend by a couple of days. I'm looking into getting a jacuzzi suite at a hotel near Milwaukee for that Saturday night so that we can hit some museums and Lake Michigan on Saturday/Sunday (and also relax in that jacuzzi Saturday night, obviously). Then, we can drive down to Chicago Sunday evening and see David Byrne. I don't actually want to spend a lot of time in Chicago because frankly I don't really like that city. So, after the concert we are going to drive part-way back towards home and stay at a hotel Sunday night, then continue our journey Monday morning. I am pretty excited. At least it is something to look forward to in the long stretch of no days off between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. IF we can get the tickets, that is.
I have an optometrist appointment in exactly two weeks. I decided I should probably make one seeing as I am out of new contacts. My health insurance covers the exam and I get a discount on glasses, so that is a good thing. I should probably set up a dentist appointment soon as well because it's been awhile and those appointments are also covered.
I finally "finished" (it will never truly be "finished") decorating my apartment. It at least looks finished. I also spent an insane amount of money at Gordman's last weekend on holiday decorations. I can't wait to start decorating for fall! :)
Last night I slept for about 9 hours, so tonight I am not quite as tired as I have been as of late. I should probably think about going to bed soon, though, or tomorrow will be horrible. Although, my customer service rep is on vacation or something like that, so in theory I should not be as busy as normal. In theory........
