It's been a hectic, but productive last few weeks.
I'm finally getting into a groove with work. There was so much to learn-- for most of the customers, it's their first time there, so you have to know the menu in pretty minute detail. The place is still pretty new-- only five months-- so they're still ironing out some problems. But overall, it's been good, and sometimes great.
Tonight, Wilco played across the street, in Millenium Park, so the place was packed before and after the concert. I quipped to one of my fellow workers that it appeared that Wilco was no longer a cult favorite.
On the home front, our kitchen is finally done-- the workers finally installed the cabinet that they had originally measured incorrectly.
I hadn't had a chance to mention another addition to our kitchen, in the pantry-- a small freezer. It's been great to be able to buy food in bulk or on sale and have somewhere to put it.
I'm enjoying school a lot. The teacher is great, my classmates are nice, and the subject is interesting. This weekend, I have to take two quizzes online. I was laughing, thinking to the first classes I took at Truman College-- Spanish classes, in the late eighties. The internet was still the purview of a few scientists and military people, for the most part. Now it's just assumed that the students have internet access.
One last bit of happy news, before I conk out for the night: they finally replaced the tree in front of our house that was destroyed.
