Last night, I had a dream that just kept coming back to my mind throughout the day.

In it, I had gone back or hadn't stopped working for my parents. They hired a consultant to fire people, like in Office Space. I mainly remember sitting at the lunch table with other employees coming in then complaining about the consultant and feeling bad about the people who got fired.


Working tomorrow, took today and yesterday off from work. The fiancee's brother has come to visit, and we've all been hanging out a bit.

We've all had a pretty relaxing time, sleeping in late, walking around leisurely, having some good food.

The fireworks provided us with some good entertainment, too. We went up to the roof deck and watched a bunch of simultaneous fireworks going off in the suburbs, probably about thirty miles away. The really cool thing, we probably saw something like 30 to 50 miles worth of fireworks.

Along with a whole bunch of other things that I've seen lately at work (like a "rib fest" and the horse track), the fireworks have really shown me how different Chicago and Illinois are from home. For awhile during the last long weekend or so, I couldn't stop talking about this area feeling like such a foreign country to me. So different and amazing.

For now, though, I'm pretty scattered in the head right now. Kinda late, and I should get up relatively early tomorrow for a training session at work. For a simple day in which not much happened, I'm really quite tired. Hunh. . ..
