Gigi and Grandad Get the Tour

Gigi and Grandad came for a visit and we took them on some sight seeing expeditions. Here we are feeding the ducks at Schiller Park. 

They really liked The Book Loft.

And our favorite Jeni's Ice Cream.

They wanted to see where PD works so we went down town to the Statehouse.

We also just hung out at home a bit.  What a fun visit!  Come back soon guys!

Reasons I Currently Loathe Myself

1. I never stay current with my blog. I make myself feel better by back dating posts and reminding myself that only 8 people read my blog.

2. I am cleaning out my basement and have decided that I am a hoarder.  It is like sorting though a sea of regret.

3. In cleaning out the basement I found an old video camera in a grocery sack with 3 tapes in it.  That is the sum total of the video I have of my children.

4. At any given time there is a half of a bagel in a plastic bag in my purse.  I pack it to eat at church and usually only have time to eat half of it.  There is often also a half a bagel in the "ash tray" of my mini van. PD calls it the "toast hole."  I think because I used to eat toast, not bagels.  But always with peanut butter.

5. My hand hurt really bad and I couldn't figure out why.  I realized it was because I found a new blog I really like and I read 5 years of the archives in one night while simultaneously playing Words with Friends with PD.

6. I always stay up until midnight and then I always don't want to get up in the morning.  This is mostly PD's fault.  (see #5 ie Words with Friends)
