We're Off to Chicago

millennium park chicago, ice skating rink, outdoor, night, chicago skyline michigan avenueCandleman and I are flying to Chicago to pick up a postal vehicle for our daughter. Luckily we won't be driving around Chicago with a right-side steering wheel as we won't pick it up until after leaving Chicago, but we will be driving it from Dubuque along I-80 through Lincoln and Denver. Should be quite the experience!

I have had a busy month and haven't posted faithfully. I'm behind 4 or 5 or 6 reviews. I am taking an ARC to read on the plane, but I'm also taking a crossword puzzle book. Never know what kind of mood I'll be in so I better be prepared. Also, have the iPod for some soft background music if Candleman dozes off.

We're hoping the roads will be good - big hope for this time of year, I know. Looking forward to seeing the Christmas decorations and lights in Chicago, visiting the German village that will be set up downtown and of course, I'm looking forward to visiting Macey's and buying some Frango mints.

I'm leaving my computer at home. A decision made easier because we are traveling light and I only want to have one carry on and my purse. I hope they believe that BIG bag is indeed my purse!

Best wishes to you all as you prepare for the holiday season. I was hoping we'd get some outside lights up this weekend, but it's not to be. I'm not complaining too loudly - I'd take a trip to Chicago (or just about anywhere) in exchange for outside lights.
