Whirlwind Trip to Chicago and Back
for Board of Regents. Thursday night, didn't sleep well anyway, and then up at 5:00. We hit the road by six and were in Oak Park by around 10:30. Quickly changed and then we walked up to the University. Luncheon began at noon, and then meetings started at 1 p.m. We went to the Johnson's for some wine and appetizers afterwards, and then off to dinner. Cindi had selected an Indian restaurant and I made an utter pig of myself - was definitely waddling when we left. It was quite tasty, needless to say. Visited the hotel bar for an after dinner drink, caught a wee bit of the Cards vs. Cubs - and joined a few others in cheering on the Cards - strangers in an alien land... After not sleeping well for the second night, up early this morning and enjoyed a brief breakfast at local bagelry. Meetings wrapped up before noon, and we drove back to Oak Park for lunch at the Jerusalem Grill and then hit the road. It was difficult staying awake for the drive home - blazing hot and just wanted to nod off. Had to stop again and again for coffee and to wake up. Finally called Pr. Gleason to ask him to take the service by himself tonight. Pulled in, unloaded, and took a nap! Now up and groggy; it will be an early evening.
