Ten.Four Hundred & Twenty-Four

1. Slow morning with a surprise. 

2. The wetness of everything. I am craving a long walk in the light rain.

3. The surprise is that they get to skip school so that we can go to a Cubs game. It will be their first and probably last visit to Wrigley Field. It’s a cloudy day but who doesn’t love to play hooky.  

4. Tomorrow from 12:15-1:15. Plenty of time for me to get a little bit of work done before all the cleaning has to be done. 

5. There’s no way for me to respond to each one. I just read them and take them in. I am just a witness.

6. This is smart. Rent out your garage on game day and make a few extra dollars.  

7. Popcorn and a draft beer. The seats are better than I expected. Everyone is happy. The oldest says that this might be the best day of his life.  

8. I could fall asleep though if I wasn’t so cold.  

9. Pizza for dinner, cold medicine for dessert. 

10. Almost.
