I have a big weekend ahead of me. Tomorrow I finish the move and start putting everything back together. On Sunday I am going to the Cubs vs. Sox game. I am really excited about this game because I'm going with a fun friend and I haven't been to a game in forever, but I'm worried about what might happen with NATO there. There have been protests, terrorist threats, and who knows what else. As I began to think about it, I wondered what it would be like to be one of the dignitaries that always carries these worries with them. I wonder if it is something that confronts them each day or if it is something they can repress. I suppose all you can really do is live.
After moving some stuff over tonight, we went out to a nice dinner to celebrate a new home. We went to Hugo's Frog Bar and ordered a variety of sides and appetizers, the best of all being the escargot. It is covered with a pastry and our server recommends placing blue cheese underneath to add a new level of flavor. It is wonderful.
