All I Want For Christmas Is The Flu

Wait, what?

Yeah, I had the flu for two weeks.

I have barely touched the RV, which is kind of scary since I leave in a little over one week. It is not going to be completely finished, but I knew that awhile back.

I will be staying with my family for the first week, showing off what we have done. Then I will be heading to the warmest state.

You can not believe how sad I have been, seeing all the Facebook posts from my friends about how warm Florida is right now, knowing I should have already been there. Broken hearted is not far off.

Luckily, I will be there soon enough.

I am so scared. I am way more scared than when I moved to Chicago without knowing anyone. Maybe because I already had an apartment, maybe because I did it 3 days from decision to arrival so I didn’t have time to think about how I would be all alone. Probably because I didn’t care if I was all alone back then. Not that I care too much now, but it is definitely harder to leave. Maybe because I have had such a good time the last 9 months.

I will be back in Illinois the first of April though. I will have to move things to storage units or sell it, my older brother is getting married, and I am hanging my art at the local Barnes and Noble. I was supposed to this month, but she double booked and it works out better if I do it in April.

I have really needed this break from the RV, not that I enjoyed most of it, but I have seen more movies since Christmas than I did in the entirety of last year. Maybe the last two years.

I have photos, but I’m too worn out to look through what I have already posted, so please enjoy this picture of my dogs hating me. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.
