Quick Hi From Chicago

My blog posts will be short and sweet for the next couple of weeks, just FYI :)

Today I drove 4 hours into Chicago. When I left Bloomington it was 75 degrees and sunny. I hit rain and nastiness on the growing-ever-more-expensive Skyway, looked down at the outside temperature gauge on my dashboard, and found it to be a depressing 45. Then I passed right by downtown hotel and had to make a very looong trip around the block to get back. Such is life at 6:00 pm in the heart of the city.

BUT on a positive note I spent the entire ride up here belting out Tom Petty hits and the Wicked soundtrack (in between phone calls with friends and family). There is something in me that smiles wide when I'm all alone singing really loudly in my car. NO ONE MOURNS THE WICKED! Yup, I'm still singing, just a bit quieter this time.

And now I'm off for a late dinner/drink with my cousin Michelle, who lives in town. Yay!

You know, in the 2 1/2 years we've lived here, we have STILL not been to Chicago. We're definitely going this summer!

Tom Petty rules!

Oh, Chicago - it's like a home away from home. Love, love, love that place!!!!

Come September you will be able to visit another in Chicago. Jennifer will be attending Trinity.

Say Hi to Michelle for me.
