This week has had a little unpleasantness, mostly due to the fact that I just want to be home. A little homesickness crept in early in the week, and I needed to hug my family. Most of my roommates have also had a bad week and a general yucky feeling settled on the house. One of my co-workers (Mark) noticed I was having a rough week. He reminded me that I now have two families- the one I came from, and Friendship Park! I'm not a touchy person, but I immediately hugged him!
Speaking of family, my roommates and I always joke about being sisterwives! It's odd how true it is. We hang out together all the time and share everything including money- that's what being in a community means! Depending on one another.
To deal with my recent yuckiness, one of my roommates (Laura) and I went out on Wednesday to a fantastic Chicago style pizza restaurant, called "The Chicago Fire." (Bad name, I know.) We had a great time, just talking and eating stuffed pizza just like Nancy's. On Thursday, I then went out thrift store shopping for Halloween costumes with roommate Krystal and found the most comfortable nightgown- a long sleeve, cotton, floor length night shirt. It was only $2 and it makes me incredibly happy! I've learned to appreciate the little things- and the great things like my roommates and family of co-workers!
I'm off to celebrate Friday with my new found family! (But I still miss my family back in Chicago!)
