Chicago: Day One

I said goodbye to my family today, but hello to old and new friends.

I spent only minutes in airports, but hours in an airplane.

I walked what seemed like hours, looking for a place to eat, but had a fabulous meal with fun people.

I was oh-so tired, but played a mean game o’ checkers.

I am now sitting here in my hotel room in Chicago, glad to be here, but already missing every one at home.

Today is day one of five.

    Perfect post Chris! My feet hurt like crazy too, and it’s only just begun. :/ I must say, you do have impressive checker skills – I never thought a simple game could make me giggle so hard. Looking forward to the rest of the week. xoxo, E

    I get in tomorrow. I’m so excited, but missing the kids already. They are sound asleep and I’ll be leaving before they wake in the morning. :(
