While I was in the midwest, I really wanted to go to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. The Shedd Aquarium has an awesome whale and dolphin exhibit and that was the main reason I wanted to go there. However, once we got to the main entrance, we saw a sign saying that the whales, dolphins, and penguins were on vacation while they renovated. Bad timing! Oh well, we still had a great time.

Outside of the aquarium we were able to see the Chicago skyline. It was a great picture spot.

This week isn't very deep at all, but none the less I am very thankful for AT&T. Is that cheesy?

I went in there yesterday and had 4 of our huge stresses taken care of in 2 1/2 hours (I am sure someone is going to laugh at what we consider huge stresses).
1. Cell phone. I was able to switch over from Verizon without loosing my phone number. I now have rollover minutes, which was a very big deal to me since I only talk 150/450 minutes.
2. Internet. As of May 15th, we will have internet that will actually work and will run a lot faster.
3. Home Phone. We now have long distance on our phone so we don't have to use our cell phones when we want to call out of the area.
4. TV. We have been fighting with Dish Network for a couple of months to upgrade us to a DVR and they wouldn't. So we now (well we will in a few weeks) have some kind of Fiber Optic TV with a DVR.

All 4 of these things made me so angry on a daily basis. I am very thankful to AT&T for making my life closer to stress-free!
