A good week
Well, mom left out on Thursday morning, and got lost on her way home. That worries me a bit, knowing that mom's always been good with directions. She ended up staying the night in Glenwood, AR. and made it back the next day.
Friday was fun, the wife and I ran some errands, then ate at Tia's, a Mexican place. After that, we went shopping at Wal-Mart. We use the one in North Little Rock, as it is MUCH cleaner than the one in Little Rock. Sometimes we use the Bryant one as well. Friday evening we went to our church for a special event called "Cafe' and Jam" which is held about every four months and features a food contest (IE: Chili, BBQ) and impromptu music performances by anyone who feels inspired to get on stage. This one featured a "Freeze-Off" Homemade Ice Cream contest. I ran camera part of the time, and it was a blast.
Working overnight tonight, Sunday, and Monday. Then, after my team meeting on Wednesday, I'm ON VACATION.
Our original plan of a trip to Chicago turned out to be finacially unattainable, so, I *sniff* sold my Cubs tickets on eBay, almost making my money back. It's sad for my wife too, who is missing out on both her family reunion, and a visit with her mom, who is flying to Chicago from Oahu.
But, we plan on having a fun time in Memphis, and already have tickets to see the Memphis Redbirds take on the Iowa Cubs. Hey, my Cubs gear will get used afterall! We'll be sitting in "The Bluff" section of AutoZone park in Memphis. We also plan on partaking in several of Memphis' sites and eating establishments. This is all in celebration of my turning 33 on July 16th. Yes, I'm getting old, but I take comfort in knowing my brother is turning 37 on the same day.
