Baseball and A Barber

Gabe came home on Wednesday evening. After I finished working, we left immediately to get a few things accomplished. We grabbed some food first thing due to traffic. We could add 30 minutes onto our trip because of traffic, or we could actually eat and wait the 30 minutes until traffic cleared up. Food won, and I must say I was happy. By the time I finish work I am usually starving. We had to go to Midway and drop off a rental car. Then we had to make it to a store by 9:00 p.m. to pick up a purchase that Gabe had made. We made it to the store at 8:40, but hey, we made it.
Yesterday was pretty busy too. We left to watch my nephew's baseball game. It took around 2.5 hours to get to the game. A guy decided to drive in the middle of the two lanes. This might not have been so bad, but there was absolutely no way to pass him (he was going less than 40 mph...in a 65 mph zone). This added about 30 minutes to the trip. We made it to the game on time. The wind started blowing and then there were sprinkles. We stayed for a couple of innings and then we left to come back to Chicago to see Sweeney Todd. It turns out that after we left the rain started pouring and they had a rain delay that lasted for quite a while. We BARELY made it to Sweeney Todd. Once we entered the theater they told us to run to the door that separates the lobby from the theater (they were closing the door and once closed we wouldn't be allowed in for at least 30 minutes). So, you guess it, we ran. Because we were running the guy held the door for us and we made it to our seats just in time. Lucky us! I haven't seen the movie, but the musical was different than I expected. It was much less dark and it actually had me laughing quite a few times. Overall, I liked it. The show let out around 10:30 p.m. and we headed to Greek Town for some food. We didn't get a chance to eat before the show, so we were both really hungry. It was close to midnight by the time we made it back home. I was really tired and went to bed. At least I have today to do all of the things that I normally do on Thursday.
