Happy Birthday!

Today is Laura's birthday.

Her fears that God likes Chicago better than Montana seem to be unfounded. After a rather iffy beginning this morning, the weather cleared off and no thunderstorms developed. According to the realtor, we had great traffic for our open house. Lots of interest and positive comments. So, we shall see what happens. Anyone looking for a great house in Aurora, IL?

I think Laura had a good birthday, despite a bit too much of the in-laws yesterday. We went out for breakfast, dropped the dogs off at my parents' house, then went to a noon showing of Revenge of the Sith. It is a little odd going to a movie so soon after breakfast, but we managed to eat popcorn anyway. Enjoyed the movie. Now, of course, I'm wishing we had the original movies on DVDs. Our VCR doesn't work, and it doesn't matter anyway because all the videotapes are packed up. Oh well.

Then we had dinner with a good friend at a Mexican place (great guacamole and margaritas) and coffee back at home.

This is shaping up to be a very busy week. On Tuesday Laura is going to the doctor to see about the headache problem. On Thursday, I'm taking a vacation day and we're going to see the Cubs play the Rockies. In nearly 10 years in Chicago, Laura has never been to Wrigley field, so we had to squeeze in a game this year!

Then next weekend we're riding in Bike the Drive. We had planned to stay overnight downtown, but it looks like the dogsitter will fall through, so we'll be leaving the house at 4 AM instead. Hopefully next Sunday's weather will be good!
