Waffles and bacon and breakfast sandwiches this morning. My turn to do the cooking. Introduced the Cases to Acron. After they left, we went to the mall, today! Out at Northbrook Center, where it was pretty quiet and maybe 30% retail occupied? Nothing like the mall I was at near St. Louis. Got the LEGO Alpine Lodge (Winter Village set for this year) while the girls went shopping. Jackson and I wandered around. I tried on some Maui Jim’s, thinking I need new sunglasses for upcoming vacations. Wanted to eat at P.F. Chang’s but didn’t have a reservation and so it was an hour late. Just so weird how empty the mall was and how packed Chang’s was. Just ended up having leftovers at home.
