Today, I became a godfather. My brother's son was baptized today at a church in Batavia, Illinois. I love being a godfather...it's like being the best uncle. My nephew will get his first drum set from me - probably next year ;->.
Anyway, there's an outlet mall on the way back to Chicago. We decided to stop at about 3PM CST. We drove around for 25 minutes trying to find a parking spot. There were absolutely no parking spaces. In fact, there was a quarter mile long line from the expressway to get to the mall.
So much for the soft economy.
