Still Crazy After All These Years

First. It's been a while since my last post. I've been through one of those ultra-hectic times. Between work and home, I just haven't had much time to squeeze in a blog post. And I had promised to post an entry every day. Ha!

Second. The family and I spent Saturday stomping around Chicago. We had been trying to get tickets to the King Tut exhibit at the Field Museum, but no luck. A great time was had by all. We walked and walked and walked and walked some more. So much to see. After a quick snack at the museum, it was off to Michigan Avenue. Let the shopping begin! Then it was dinner at Gino's East (great pizza). Then a quick stop at the Hershey's chocolate store. And, finally, a return trip to Crate and Barrel for some really cool Christmas decorations. Then it was off for home. Or more like, "stuck in traffic". With Barry Manilow (remember him) in town and the Chicago Marathon on Sunday, it was bumper to bumper for a long time. But that's all part of the big-city experience.

Third. Yesterday was my birthday. Yep. I'm a whopping 45 years old. Don't feel any older than I did last year, or the year before. Which is a good thing. A very good thing. Still crazy, after all these years.

Have a good Monday!

happy belated birthday Mike! Your trip to the city sounds exhausting but great. My husband lived in Chicago for a year with the Australian Navy (many years ago) he loved his time there :)
