Back In Illinois

We are back in Illinois. We left the hotel for the airport at 10:00 a.m. Spain time. Our GPS system was stolen during the trip. It really sucks since we had purchased the maps for Europe (includes walking directions) and we were never able to use them. Anyway, we managed to stay busy at the airport. We watched The Black Dahlia (and The Illusionist last night). We thought that we had plenty of time for our connection in London. Well, it turns out we did not. We literally ran through the airport like you see on the movies. I told Gabe that I need to start running more. He made a good point that it is more difficult to run with luggage. I was just going to use the excuse that my shoes were not tied since exiting security. We barely made it onto the plane. We watched a lot of movies on the plane (Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, Sally Lockhart: The Shadow in the North, and Elizabeth). Hey, when I am on a plane I watch movies that I ordinarily wouldn't watch. Once we arrived in Chicago Aaron picked us up from the airport. Now we are back home and the first load of laundry is in the washing machine. I think that we might go to the grocery store. Neither of us are hungry right now, but I would like to have some food in the house for tomorrow...I am really sick of eating out.
Before we left I finished the book Alone by Lisa Gardner. It is okay, but I prefer Patterson. Gabe and I watched Vacancy. A couple checks into a hotel when their car breaks down and figures out that the cheap slasher movies that are on their T.V. were filmed in their hotel room. They spend the rest of the time trying to escape. I watched Year of the Dog with Molly Shannon. It was a great movie about a woman's life after her dog dies. It isn't the funny movie that I expected, but it is worth the watch for any animal lover.


Heathrow, right? We've had the same experience in London "almost missing flights" when it seemed that there was plenty of time for the connection.

Glad to hear you made it back safe and sound.

Now... let's see the pictures!
