OMG it's huge!!!... Stop that - get your mind out of there... The Mall of America is huge... it has got to be 4 stinking miles of indoor mall. There is somewhere close to 100 restaurants and 6 floors of shopping - not to mention an amusement park in the middle of it!!! Yes, an amusement park, equipped with roller coasters, a 5 story ferris wheel, and a water log ride thing... I stood there on the 5th floor looking at the people in the amusement park riding rides and playing as if it were the middle of July in San Diego... except it's 48 degrees in Eagan MN and they are indoors... I was stunned.....|
I SO WOULD RATHER BE IN SAN DIEGO THAN AN INDOOR MALL IN MN IN FEBRUARY!!!! (OR ANY OTHER DAY FOR THAT MATTER)
I am spoiled - yes, I am... some of you do not know that about me but I am spoiled. I have wonderful kids, a wonderful girlfriend, a wonderful job, and am working at finding peace and success in my life - I am spoiled. I read an email earlier today that talked about how lucky we all are to be in America, to be free from Oppression, to be able to get medical care, clean water, and food. To not wake up to gunfire, to not have seen the horrors of war, to have the ability to vote and participate in our goverment - we are the luckiest of peoples on this earth...
Thank you to all of my friends, thank you to my kids, thank you Shirley, thank you GOD, and Thank you VALERIE... I really love and appreciate you all.
Val, I miss you Baby and will be home soon... kisses, Gig
