What's on my mind

It's probably obvious to anyone who reads my blog that I'm a food person. I love to try new restaurants. Now that I live here, I could eat somewhere new every day and still never run out of places to go. (Although my waistline and wallet would not approve.) Tonight my father-in-law (sounds weird to say that), who is in town for a conference, took us here. Delicious.

We took the L downtown and got off at the nearest stop and walked the rest of the way to the restaurant. I have spent my summer being in flip flops and, for the last couple of weeks, Chucks. Neither would suit my attire tonight so I picked out heels. I opted for a "comfortable" pair. Well apparently a lot has changed. My feet are no longer conditioned the way they once were and heels are now made for sitting but not walking several blocks. By the time we reached the restaurant I had already rubbed blisters on the bottom of both of my feet. Joe says I need to become like the other city women and wear tennis shoes until I reach my destination. I think he's right. Needless to say, we took a cab once we left the restaurant.

In other news, I spend most of my days doing small tasks around the house and running errands. I also spend a great portion of my time, each and every day, job searching and applying for jobs. Not once since I've been here has someone contacted me about a job. It's really starting to get discouraging. I know nothing is wrong with me but it's now starting to get in my head. I haven't been unemployed for this long since I was 16. Sigh.

I know it's discouraging, but I also know that the perfect job is out there for you.
