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.
