This was an incredibly tough week at work. So much so that I'm not even going to talk about it ;-p
I also was battling a sinus infection which was killer. Thanks to Doc Mercado (he's from Bolivia and is a great MD), I got some instant meds which took about 24 hours to kick in and I'm almost back to normal.
That was key for the week though as I'm traveling for the next four weeks solid for work. I've been told that flying with a sinus infection is one of the most dangerous things out there and that wouldn't have been fun.
Last Sunday we stopped for lunch at the re-born Tastee-Freez on Rte 31 in North Aurora. When I first moved out here in '98, it was on its last legs and ended up closing that summer. Since then it's had several attempts at quick drive-in food but mostly has been a closed, vacant building over the last 12 years.
Yummy-tummy as Aidan says. They have expanded their flavors of soft-serve and the types of treats you can get. Aidan had a small strawberry/vanilla twist in a cup, MK had strawberry, chocolate dipped and I had their version of the DQ Blizzard called a Freezee with Reese's Pieces.
I'm glad they are back. It adds some more character to that entrance to our fine Village. There's a lot of "scary" looking buildings over there but a healthy TIF district combined with some new businesses and a brand new Police Station set to open in September are good positive signs in a crappy economy that there's hope.
So the next four weeks see me in the lovely destinations of Atlanta, Warwick (England), back to Atlanta and then off to New York City. Between the first two is a quick Labor Day weekend at my in-laws cottage in Michigan where I hope we have great weather. There's also a looming trip to Fairfield, CT (yes, get excited all my FFD peeps, it's been TOO LONG since I've been there) either in the FIFTH week or the week after but that won't be confirmed for awhile.
I'm going to try to enjoy my weekend, but I'm also very conscious that I'm going to be away from my adorable son too too much over the next four weeks. Makes all the days I'm with him that much more special.
