It was a hell of a week to be a celebrity, huh? Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson and Billy Mays. Although all sad, I think the Billy Mays thing will impact me the most. I mean, I never saw any of the other people on a regular basis the way I did Billy Mays. He was on every station, at every time of the day – he even made those awesome ESPN commercials. May they all rest in peace.
Uummm, it’s Monday. The second Monday of my return to the working world. At one point this morning, the boyfriend checked on me to make sure I was really going to get out of bed. I assured him I would… and I did. I’m not a morning person. I get up at the latest possible minute and put forth the least amount of effort to make it to the office on time and in a presentable manner. The boyfriend’s the opposite. He gets up earlier than he has to so he can get some relaxation time in before heading to the office. We see each other for abou three minutes in the morning before I run out the door.
It’s the big Pittsburgh trip this weekend! Eeeeee! We’re leaving on Thursday evening and returning Monday evening. Four full days of Yankee bliss – Primanti’s, Eat n Park, the Regatta… I think we’re going to take a Duck tour of the city. I’ve always wanted to do that. The boyfriend was so sweet, he was like, “Whatever you’ve always wanted to do in Pittsburgh, that’s what we should do.” He’s totally up for anything (as long as we go to Primanti’s). It’s going to be wonderful. I can’t wait! If only it didn’t take eight hours to get there…
It’s so weird to think that none of my immediate family lives in Pittsburgh anymore. My aunts, uncles, cousins and grandfather are still around, but I don’t think it’s going to feel the same without my parents or brothers. This will be my first venture to the city without any one of them being there.
