Hooky (a week ago today)
Last Wednesday I took the day off work and spent it with the family (the girls had a camp-free week and were driving Josh nuts).
Our morning was picture perfect. Josh had a doctor's appointment in Lincoln Park, so he dropped me and the girls off at North Avenue beach for an hour or so.
It was early enough that we missed the drunk crowds of yahoos at Castaways and the beach volleyball courts, but there was still some bottle caps and cigarette butts on the sand (boo). But that didn't stop the girls from soaking up the magic that is any beach, no matter how trashy or fresh(?)-watery.
The rest of the day was punctuated by whiny kids, temper tantrums and...well, I'm just now recovering.
