Shot@Life Uganda Trip Blog: October 8


Sitting in a restaurant and doodling on a kids menu seems boring to me tonight. The whole scene just seems played out and boring. Sights and sounds of Glenview, IL are so mundane to me now after raising my kids and traveling up and down the same stretch of Waukegan Road for kids’ activities, restaurants, dry cleaners, and playgrounds for years.

What will this be like when I come back from Uganda? Will I be appalled at the excess? Will I be relieved to be back in the familiar? Will absence make the heart fonder? Will I come back anxious to find some way to go back to Africa?
