I should probably write about my trip to Chicago, which I took from April 29 through May 4. I guess the problem is that I really didn't do anything extremely exciting during the vacation. In fact, I didn't do much at all, besides relax, read five books and watch the playoffs.
Other people believe that, on a vacation, you always need to be going somewhere and doing something. I used my vacation for relaxation, which involves not going places and doing things. The closest I came to actual work was drawing pictures.
I tried to catch up on sleep, but my body was stuck in two time zones. I woke up in one time zone and fell sleep in the other. I probably got less sleep than I would have if I had just stayed at home and slept all day.
Three of the days, relatives stopped by. One day was a large lunch with everyone. Another day, Aunt Gail, Grandma and I went down to Peoria to see the Cathedral and Archbishop Sheen Museum. And a third day, the Craddocks came by, and they took me out bowling. After that, we had pizza and went to the Moose Club, and they commented that the night sounded like something you'd see in a sitcom.
I also got to watch Everybody Loves Raymond for the first time. The show is pretty funny, although it has a tendency to be kind of slow, seeing as the characters pause after every single line, in order to give the audience a chance to laugh. When you're laughing along with the show, you don't notice this; when you're not laughing, it makes the show harder to watch.
