Good Thursday Sparkfam!! Its a beautiful but extremely warm day here in Chicago. We have a heat advisory til later tonight but they will probably have to extend it til Sunday night. It will be in the 90s til next week here & with my son's leg in a cast, I'm not looking forward to it. I want to take a few vacation days but since he can't get wet & its a struggle taking him anywhere, I will wait til the 20th of August.
So the reason for the title is that yesterday not long after I got to work, my co-worker asked if I wanted 4tickets (with a parking pass) to the White Sox's game? I didn't want them cause I just rather watch paint dry than go out to the ball park in warm weather baking in the sun! So I called my sons & they wanted to do. YIKES! So I took the tickets & we went. I had been to US Cellular field once before but we came on the red line. Its a train thats used for public transportation for those of you out of towners. lol So it was a huge mess. I dropped my son, nephew & my son's friend down the street from the park. I didn't want him walking too much with his leg in a cast. So once I found the parking lot, guess what? It was directly across from the ball park! UGH!! I had to walk 2blks to get my crew & then my son couldn't get his crutches & leg to act right. He was really clumsy with them but I guess when you take for granted walking all your life one week doesn't make you a professional crutch user. He got tired we stopped & then did again & again & finally we got there. Everybody was hot & tired. So we got drinks $13.50 for 3 20oz sodas! I was outdone but they had a good time & lunch would be later but they still wanted fries. So they bought fries & had a ball. It was good to get him outside but I think that was a HUGE deal. Next time we will focus on a place to play games or a movie? We left right at the 7th inning & hearing take me out to the ball game, cause its 1 2 3 strikes you're out at the old ball game.
I haven't been a 100% with my workouts lately. I guess I'm on the fritz....Got a whopper of a headache too so I am going home to lie down. Maybe I will feel better later & get up & get some kickboxing done? Walking is done.
Outside of travel, what have you done in your city for fun this summer under $75?
God bless Sparkfam!!
