I am snug in my old bed in my parents house on Long Island! It feels really good not to be on a train. Eating a home-cooked meal and taking a shower felt glorious! The Chicago to NYC train was not nearly as much fun. First off, it left at 9:30pm, so you don't really see anything that first night. I also took some sleep meds, so I slept pretty much the whole time we were on the train. I managed to take a few pictures, but I was pretty lazy about it. No one interesting to talk to (thankfully), so I got to read a little bit and just vegetate. Happy to be back with my family, though! I even got a slice of New York pizza. My train throat has gone away - it's no longer sore, but I'm a little bit congested.
In "making new friends news," J1 emailed me today to see if I got back safely. Ew, I'm creeped out. He's old enough to be my father - thank you NO. Ignoring that. Anyhow, I'm looking forward to apple picking, seeing movies, and eating real food this weekend. No further news to report =)
