The Paramount

Last week we were supposed to go see The Producers in Aurora, Illinois. Now Aurora is famous for the massacre that took place a bit ago.

Anyway, we canceled our theatre moment since our son and his wife were both in the throes of a nasty virus and childcare was, well, kind of difficult. Both kids are under the age of four. Mary Kay had taken the kids to the babysitter (where they normally go on that day of the week) and then in the afternoon, since they were truly still under the weather, we picked them up and brought them to our house. They stayed overnight and then the next day was our usual day with them.

So, today we are off to Aurora. We have been to this theatre before, the Paramount and it, all by itself, is worth seeing. Lately, the plays they have been having have been getting great reviews as well.
It takes about an hour to get there, depending on the traffic.

We intend to go a little earlier, valet the car (because it is cheaper than parking elsewhere), and then having a drink. That is a win/win.

Today I had Oakton tutoring, two conversation hours, and then I went to the gym.

The weather has warmed up. The last time I looked it was close to thirty degrees. This morning it was in the twenties. The sun is shining and the sky is blue. The weather is taking a turn for the better? Wait, this is Chicago, after all.

Who can ask for more?
