What a weekend. When we planned this we didn't realize that it was the weekend of our anniversary so that worked out nicely.
We got up Friday morning and got ourselves packed, ran a couple of errands and got on the road.
One of the things about traveling as much as we do, we try to find good places to eat. Road food is, well, road food. A few years ago a friend of mine and I found this great chinese place in Sterling IL. Really, if you are traveling along I-88 in Illinois it is worth your while to stop at Fung Ming. This is my favorite Chinese restaurant of all time.
We got into the Wrigleyville area around 5. The drive into the city was only mildly awful, so that is certainly better than the usual.
The evening was a blast. Some folks I didn't know well, some folks I knew all too well. Lizzie made a toast to our anniversary, which was lovely.
It's interesting seeing who we have all become, good and bad. In a lot of ways I am still that shy guy I was in HS and college.
Saturday was wonderful, Lizzie and I ran around the city, went to a music store, went to a yarn store, got her drum worked on.
The evening at the bar didn't last long. It was most certainly not a place to hang out and talk. We all ended up back at the condo and crashed out pretty early.
We also made the holy pilgrimage. Hmmm, lamb kebobs. Oh, and for the first time in years I had cheese fries from the Weiners Circle. My arteries are still annoyed at me.
I got around ok, better every day. I even walked to the bar. Took a cab back, but I walked there.
We need to have another of these weekends.
