Because even though I know that the area underneath our bed is entirely occupied with boxes, part of me still fears getting under the covers at night.
What if something grabs my ankle as I climb into bed? Someone could be hiding under there all day long, just waiting for me to turn off the lights at bedtime.
The 3 seconds from light switch to mattress are pure terror.
Luckily for my sanity Chicago is close enough to visit fairly frequently, and we've had a wonderful time exploring it together.
|Isaac and I standing on Navy Pier. That's Chicago in the background.|
|There is a glass shelf at the top of the Willis tower that allows you to see all the way down. You can't tell from a photo, but we're quaking in our boots. It's surprisingly scary.|
|Probably the best part of Chicago. Giordano's stuffed pizza. So. Much. Cheese.|
|The Bean. A famous but weird...sculpture? Monument?|
|The face fountain in Millenium Park. The face on that screen changes occasionally. Kinda weird, but all the water on the ground was very refreshing on a hot day.|
