Went o Larry’s Bait and Family Restaurant on Saturday night… Met up with Tomi, Jeff and Abby for my customary 1/2 chicken dinner. Yum! Went back to our house and let Jeff win every game of “Oh-Heck”, a new card game that Ang picked up from Shirley when they were waiting together at the hospital.
Woke up this morning and said to Ang… “Lets got to Chicago”. So, that’s what we did. 8:30 AM we were on the road.
First stop. Lincoln Park Zoo. The kids had a good time looking at some new animals that are not shown in Peoria or Bloomington. Giraffes, Alligators, Penguins, White Lipped Reindeer… ??? That is one that Summer managed to remember when I was quizzing here on the way out!
Next we walked over the lake Michigan and let the kids hang out on the beach for a little bit. I am not kidding when I say the lake water had to be like 55 degrees. But of course, there were all kinds of people jumping and swimming in it. Yoooowza! No Thanks! I could barely keep my feet in it!
Next stop, Woodfield. The whole reason for our trip… IKEA. I really do hate that place, but they have some great wood shelving units for my newly reconditioned basement. So, I will be setting up a bunch of those over the next week, and hopefully make this basement usable! It has only taken 6 years!
Linda is doing well. Hopefully she is resting, but I am getting the impression from Ang that she should be resting more!!!
Went and saw X3 on Friday night. Not bad. Dan and I discussed this afterward… Phoenix should have been unnerving the North American Continent, not just the Bay Area. So, while we understand she had a lot of power, it did not come through with enough concern for all the potential destruction she could cause. This the same character that flew into a planet and killed the billions of aliens living on it. Sorry, had to get that comic geek moment out.
Superman comes out soon. I initially had said that I did not want to see it… I have changed my mind now. Next, I have to work on changing Ang’s mind!
