Much Better, Thanks
I am much better today than I was yesterday. I even managed to laugh about it a little bit last night.
I'm in a good mood today (actually woke up that way) and I think that my good mood may have something to do with how beautiful and sunny it is outside today, despite it being zero degrees out. Did you see that? Yep. It's ZERO DEGREES outside right now. Thank goodness for warm inside air!
This weekend I'm going ice skating with some friends. But we're going to the indoor rink because it will be much warmer in there than outside. Ah, Michigan winters. So beautiful, but so FREAKING COLD.
Last year, at just about this time, my husband and I were on our honeymoon. In Chicago.
Yeah, we're crazy.
Really, we were broke and so a two-day vacation somewhere within driving distance worked with our budget. We decided to walk around one day (and got a little lost, but eventually found our way) and go to places like Shedd's Aquarium and such.
We got out there and started walking, and decided it was time to catch the El, because it was 2 degrees outside, and walking was just not going to cut it. The El station (or at least the one that we knew came out close to the Aquarium) was still a good 10 minute walk from the Aquarium, into the wind.
The bitter, cold wind, coming off Lake Michigan.
We made it, and had a great time (Aaron got to see an anaconda, so he was thrilled), but by the time we got back to the hotel that night after dinner and a play, we were both SICK. Because we were idiots, walking around in 2 degree weather all day, and when we weren't outside, we were inside near a bunch of snotty-nosed kids who touched everything, and we weren't smart enough to also not touch some things.
So, yes. Besides the play (Monty Python Spamalot - AWESOME) and dinner, we spent our honeymoon in two degree weather or surrounded by little kids.
We're brilliant, no?
