I'll try to be a better citizen. Promise. Just like I promise to write more.
Right after we get back from Chicago. We're taking Owen and Max to Chi-town on Thursday, their first "big city" trip (I don't count St. Louis because, well, family lives there). It will also mark Owen's first trip on a plane. Max flew with Aimee when he was like...five months old.
So fun. Exciting. Maybe a little nerve-wracking.
Maybe I can dredge some story ideas from the chilly depths of Lake Michigan. Maybe something prehistoric-looking in the tank at Shedd Aquarium will swim to the edge of the glass and make eye contact with me, sparking ancient memories in my brain. Maybe we'll lose our luggage.
Only time will tell.
"See" you next week.
