We moved us and the cats in on Monday and the furniture arrived on Thursday. I've been unpacking ever since. And now I'm resting on the couch in my bower of a living room on the North Side.
Since I've been busy doing moving-related things, I haven't really had much time to do any exploring. I almost didn't post today. But then I thought, "You HAVE to post on your first Sunday in town. You HAVE to." So here I am.
Today is not a day for unpacking. Today is a day for getting out and tasting the delights of the city. First up, a matinee of Six Degrees of Separation at Eclipse (my friend Rebecca is in it, so I got comped in) followed by a beer with said Rebecca and then a trip over to Navy Pier to see the Water Fools show at Chicago Shakes with another friend, Chris. Quite a full program for someone who hasn't even been here a week.
And to make sure I can do all that I want to do, I did some poking around on-line and got myself a handy little seven-day CTA pass. Unlimited CTA usage for seven days. By which time, I'm hoping my CTA Chicago-Plus card will have arrived in the mail.
I'm so glad I discovered the 7-day pass. I was really hating having to look up $2.25 for each leg of a trip. This thing will easily pay for itself this week.
