So…I’ve been in Milwaukee, WI for almost a month. I’ve been living in my Aunt Steph’s house in the downstairs apartment that she currently does not have rented out. I am SO SO GRATEFUL. I really hate living in hotels. So much. Which is a whole different dynamic, since by the end of this month, I will have spent approximately 2 full weeks traveling on business.
Expense reports. I can file them now.
I’m in love with Milwaukee. IN LOVE. It’s such a cool town, with so much going on. Restaurants, museums, Walgreen’s AND CVS?! Basically, I can get Vietnamese food any day of the week, and to me, that’s crazy talk. CRAZY TALK.
I’m also enjoying getting to spend time with family that I haven’t seen very often over the last 29 years of my life. I get to drink a glass of wine with my aunt almost any night the fancy strikes, and I get to go see the other aunts and play with new babies and learn to meet my cousins on a new level. Rather than the previous, throwing-the-barbies-down-the-laundry-chute-and-blaming-the-boys-to-escape-the-little-girls level. (I’m really sorry about that, Rachael and Megan. I really didn’t feel like playing Barbies for two weeks straight. I was 13, for the love of Pete.)
I’ve gotten to see Grant twice and Daisy once. I get to see Grant again this weekend, on my way to seeing my grandmother. I miss my fuzzy faced princess, though. (That would be Daisy, of course, who my parents are graciously boarding until our new apartment is vacant.) I can’t wait to have them both here with me and to share my experiences in this new place. I’m already planning hiking trips, and Daisy will absolutely be taking a picture with the Bronze Fonz as soon as all this Wisconsin snow clears up!
