Rather excited today anticipating my parents arrival from the UK. They will be here for 2 weeks and it's their first visit to Chicago. It's kind of strange and rather unnerving though that I can't actually remember when the three of us last spent that long together in one stretch, probably a family holiday in my teens.
I have already become pretty accomplished at being a Chicago tour guide, although 2 weeks may be testing my abilities, however I have lined up plenty to do, although last time we had family to stay they were so jetlagged they spent most of the time asleep on the sofa.
The weather has turned warm, although the humid air is often punctuated by crazy thunderstorms, like the one last night when I was out stocking up on wine and beer. On Thursday
powerful thunderstorms are expected along with 90 degree temperatures. Let me look at what I have planned for Thursday..... oh, drinks on the 95th floor of the Hancock Building
