Yes, its Wednesday and we usually do girlfriend day on Tuesday, but today we went downtown to the Museum Of Science And Industry. Only three of us went downtown today. We went to see the CSI exhibit. It was really cool. You solved your own crime scene. And we got it right. We are now CSI rookies...how special.
Today was a day of first for Edie...Carla and I told her she was riding the CTA back to the bus station instead of us taking a cab back. We caught a cab outside the train station to take us to the museum and when we got there it was 20.00 bucks. Now we did split it three ways, so that wasn't bad, but there was no way I was paying another 20.00 bucks to get back to the train station. I do think this cab driver took the LONGEST way to the museum as possible though. Probably thought three girls didn't know jack about where things are located downtown. Should of gotten his name so I don't get in his cab again..ha. Another thing that made me nuts was this driver had all the windows open in his cab and our hair was blowing all over the place. Now, wouldn't you think he would notice this and ask if maybe we might like the windows rolled up? NOOOO...not our driver. So, in this picture I'm posting, I have no control over how my hair looks. Its pretty crazy looking.
Anyway, it was a fun day downtown. My husband says I'm getting to be a pro at getting on the train and going downtown for the day. He also says he knows that a year ago, there would of been no way I would of gone on a train downtown without him. Now, I'm not saying I would go by myself, but with the girls, its ok. I did wonder for a moment downtown waiting for the bus if this strange guy was gonna give us some trouble....Edie wouldn't sit down at the bus stop so in case he came closer, she was gonna run...haha. The crazy thing is he DID get closer to us just as the bus was coming....whew. I told hubby that I'm getting mace.
Sonya, Carla and Edie. Enjoy
