Anyways, our plans involve getting massages at Heaven on Earth Massage. I just finished with mine and Andy is at his now. We had to take turns so that someone is home with Isabel. She napped through most of mine and is still napping. It's great that she is taking a good AM nap, because she won't have much time this afternoon.
This afternoon we are going to look at two houses that are on the top of our list. We still have not sold our house (actually, there is another open house at our MN home going on today - cross your fingers and/or say a prayer.) I thought we would at least rule these two in or out. On paper they seem the best fit for us. It would suck if we do like one of these houses and someone else buys it before we can, but the good thing is that it is a buyers market and something else perfect will come along. Although, the buyers marker sucks for trying to sell a house.
After the tours, we are having dinner at Antigua Restaurant in West Allis. It is a Mexican restaurant. We are a big fan of Mexican food.
Then we will come home and crack open a bottle of our favorite wine, Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio. We're actually more of a red wine couple, but we love this wine. And after that - we'll just have to wait & see.

We never made it to the grocery store today, but we know where it is and between the 2 places we did stop today we have some food for a couple of dinners.
So, we won't be buying this house or anything similar to it. I am afraid we may have to settle for deeded lake access if we want to live near a lake.
There are tons of squirrels running around and lots of birds and Molly has been enjoying running after them.
BTW - for family who reads this, mark on your calendar that we will have Isabel's birthday party next May out here. It will be on the Saturday before her birthday.
We may have a new place (hopefully) by then, but I think it might be fun to enjoy the lake since it will actually start getting warmer then. They have a fishing boat that we can use or maybe we can even see what places rent things in town. We might change our minds on the location, but we will have one that Saturday before he birthday.

And if you go to Chicago there are tons of other cities you can go to, but if you are trying to go from Mpls or Mke to one of those other cities, you have to do your own coordination of schedules.
There are lots of Cities in Midwest & heading East, and then also stops in CA, AZ, & NV. Very Cool.

The other thing is that the therapist should have immediately talked with her client and made a referral once she found out that her client was dating her son. No question about that. But still it would be awkward to have your son dating a former client.
My movie for tomorrow is Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story. It got 3 stars.
So, here are my thoughts:
Old King Cole - I swear it's all about smoking pot. He wants his bowl & pipe....what else could it be.
Rain - When we were getting all sorts of rain the past few weeks, we sang this often and I couldn't help thinking that our family in Spain would not be fond of us sending the rain we were getting to them.
Little Jack Horner - You know, he's really not such a good boy if he is ruining the pie for everyone else. I make motions to this song and Isabel does them with the rhyme now.
Baa, Baa, Black Sheep - Andy asked me if this rhyme was about slavery
The Old Woman in a Shoe - When Andy read this to her this weekend, he added in some comments about her going on welfare to support her children.
Jack Be Nimble - Are we trying to encourage dangerous behaviors in our children? I like the Jill addition in the link.
Just some thoughts......

"Little Tommy Tucker
Sings for his supper:
What shall we give him?
White bread and butter."
Well, one day, Andy says to me (after I finished singing it) - Hmmm, white bread and butter, he must not be a very good singer.
I thought that was funny and every time I sing it to her I think of that.
