Missing Mondays

I was looking through my flickr albums yesterday and I realized I haven't been to Pittsburgh in a year! At least not for a fun trip. I'm not even sure if I was in the city for work much last year.

I miss the city. I miss Phipps Conservatory. I miss The National Aviary. I miss The South Side and all the shops and restaurants.

I have a car now, but my weekends are always so crazy that going to the city always gets pushed back. Heck I've not been to the casinos in over a year. I can't remember when I was last at Wheeling Island, and I've never been to The Meadows which is only a half hour from me, and the Rivers, though its supposedly gorgeous, is in such an awkward spot that I have no desire to go there.

I've missed two Christmas displays now, as I haven't made it to the city for the holidays since 2007.

This is where I heave a big sigh.

I may have given up clubbing years ago, but I still love Pittsburgh, and I really really really miss the city and all the bridges and fun things to do. (and places to eat)

I miss Pittsburgh, too. We only get back about 2 or 3 times a year, which isn't much after leaving home back in 1973. Pittsburgh today is a much nicer place than it was when I was growing up...the air is better, the rivers are cleaner, and there's more to do. On the downside, it's still impossible to find your way around downtown, but I can live with that...

"not been to the casinos"

This is a GOOD thing.

Mike: Maybe I should have clarified, I've not been to their restaurants. I don't go to gamble..I go to eat :)

Aww. I hope you get to go soon.
