We met up with several family members in one of Quincy's restaurants--the Maid Rite. It's a place that reminds one of home--full of grease and empty calories, and absolute joy. Then we took off for points north. Drove to Jim and Karen's and had dinner with them. Dropped off Rob/Beata's rental car at O'Hare, then they drove home with me. We got here around 11 PM, and they got to open their belated Christmas presents. They seemed to enjoy what I'd gotten them. It was such fun watching them open the presents. A quick email check, updating blogs, and now hope to sleep soon. I have an online meeting in the morning, so Rob and Beata can sleep late. After I work we'll go shopping and then sightseeing. Tomorrow night is ComedySportz practice, and I'm bringing them with me.
It's great to have them in my home. So wonderful!
