Well...

...against the welcome advice of my fellow bloggers, I did not make it to Chicago this weekend for Lollapalooza or anything else for that fact. I woke up Saturday morning ready to go, then I searched for a decent hotel room and had absolutely no luck. Not sure what I expected to get that would be available for that same day...lol. But, the optimist in me had to at least try. Everything was booked solid or over $250 which I could not seriously see myself paying. Then, I thought well, we can just drive home that night. Then I looked at the weather radar in Chicago - it was raining :( That was the final straw... With my lack of planning, decision making, heat advisory, no hotel room, and rain I figured the cards were now stacked against me and I stayed home. My son had ended up spending Friday night at a friend's house, so I just left him over there for the day to splash in the pool, etc.

I briefly lamented Lollapalooza, did a few things around the house and took a nap. I guess the next best thing to doing "something" is doing nothing....lol.

Saturday night me, my partner, another couple that we are friends with, their son and my son all decided to go to the County fair that was a few cities away. We ended up having a great time (see the new Flickr photos on the side bar). We ate lots of great unhealthy food, rode all the unsafe overpriced rides, laughed, and returned home exhausted. A good time had by all...

Yesterday, the heat was practically unbearable so me and my son spent the day in our pool. He kept climbing up on my shoulders and jumping off. This morning I woke up barely able to turn my head. It hurts way down between my shoulders... I think I must have pulled something :)

Sorry you didn't make Lollapalooza (why does writing that make me think of umpa-loompa and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?!?!), sounds like you had a fun weekend anyway. Those pool times with mom in the summer will be lasting memories for your son as he grows up!

Hope your shoulders are feeling better this afternoon.

Guess Lollapalooza wasn't meant to be. At least you got some stuff done and squeezed in some pool time with your son.

Owie! Sorry about your shoulder/neck.

So you took the yellow brick road to the fair.
I always loved the "carnies" at the fairs when I was a kid. They seemed so exotic to me.
It's great to see pics of kids being happy. Thanks for those.

It sounds like you had a great time. I love county fairs. They can make for the best memories.

Also, for your neck, try thermacare heat patches for the neck, they last 8 hours and they help me alot. Drugstores and supermarkets carry them.

The thermacare things are great- i agree! hope your neck is much better tomorrow. Lotsa motrin is usually what i do!
My son is nearly 11 so if he jumped off my shoulders I'd be in the hospital lol. (I'm only 5'3)..
Hugs to you for a better neck/shoulders, tomorrow!

Aww... sorry you didn't make it to Lollapalooza... I am sure though there will be some other amazing experience that will come along at the right time. OR... maybe we can create our own show! Dare to dream... :)
