May 24th, 2006

Forgot to mention that on our way home from the zoo Monday we saw the military helicopters fly overhead reminding us that the President was in town. I wasn’t able to get my camera out quick enough, but there were three and they were cool. We were passing O’Hare airport on the expressway when it happened.

Anyway, yesterday we ventured over to the god forsaken mall. My mission was to buy one Grumpy Bear messenger bag from Hot Topic as seen at Diner Bitch’s site. It wasn’t meant to be; there were none. :'(

I ended up buying these fantastical brown dress pants from New York & Company on clearance; they were only $8! Talk about a steal. I paid $25 for the same pants (in black) just weeks ago.

That was my exciting Tuesday with a trip to Walmart thrown in. Oh and a lunch at Lonestar steakhouse. I love their dinner salads so I got the chicken breast with salad. I was really impressed with the seasoning they used on the chicken too. Most places the chicken is just flavorless, and frankly I was expecting the same but ordered it because I don’t want to completely blow up during vacation, but it was surprisingly yummy.

Oh and we saw the new neighbors who moved in next door. Or at least some of their family. We can’t decide since our old neighbors said they were a foreign couple with a 10-year-old, but we saw some foreign women (looked and sounded French according to Joe) running out back chasing after two toddlers. Not sure if they live there or were visiting. Joe said the man smokes. Lucky us. I swear, we always win the neighbor lottery. We’ve got smokers with a loud dog on one side and smokers (possibly with screaming toddlers) on the other. Yay us! I can’t wait to move in approximately 7 years because our next house won’t have neighbors within yelling distance. I don’t care what it takes, I’m not living next to people again.

    No day is complete without a trip to Wally World, right? Shoot me.

    lol 7 years is a long time to look forward to!

    I’ve always been extremely lucky when it came to neighbors. Growing up my neighbors were practically part of my family, and now I really love spending time with the people from both houses on either side of us.

    Hope the kids aren’t too loud!
