This last weekend, we went on a brief vacation – back to IL to visit family! I was able to see this guy – my nephew!
He always is so much bigger every time I see him! He recently started band, and is playing the trombone, so was practicing
Here we are, shortly after we landed in Chicago.
I kind of had a rough time with food while I was there. In my head, I always think things will work out, but not being in charge of my food was hard! My parents are basically meat and potatoes type of people, so I thought I would be ok, but the “hidden gluten” in things really made it hard. However, we did go out to lunch on our last day there, and I had a great meal! Baked cod and broccoli – really good!
We didn’t take Sammy with us – we had a friend watch him. I missed him so much! We were sent this picture of him – doesn’t he look sad?
My parents have a relatively new dog – an Australian shepherd and border collie mix. She was so much fun to play with!
It was good to pick him up when we got back, but for a while, he was just confused .. I don’t know if he didn’t remember us, or didn’t understand what was going on. Anyway, it is good to be home, and do some of my own cooking!
Due to circumstances beyond my control, I might not be blogging a lot this week. I will try to hop on when I can, however! I will be on Facebook periodically, so you can look for me there!
I am also pausing for a moment to remember 9/11/2001 – lost but never forgotten!
