Short post but so many of you wrote the sweetest comments and emails saying you were praying for our trip.
Saturday was travel day. Jack did great. I don’t know why I ever worried about it. We arrived in Chicago about 5 to lots of snow.
We went to dinner at a great place and wanted to eat in the bar to watch the games.
We ended up at a table with total strangers and two hours later, they were friends.
I love those kind of meetings.
We had kids the same age, they had been married almost as long as us, knew every restaurant in Chicago and shared places that were a must see.
By the time we left she was ready to start a tree decorating business…and wanted to know every detail.
It was such a fun night meeting new friends.
You would be proud of me. I waited until the man showed me pictures of his kids before I pulled out my IPad and showed off the little's.
Yesterday we rested and watched football.
I guess I am pulling for ELI now.
I like the Manning boys.
We ordered the famous Giordano's pizza and it was delish..
After the games we watched a movie we had missed at the theater, Courageous. A great movie.
You have no idea how weird it feels not having at least one little along. One is always with us.
Today training started and Jack was as excited as I have seen him in a long time. That in itself was a good thing.
I joined the group for the afternoon session, taking my IPad and planning to play Words With Friends in my lap.
BUT the presentation was so interesting that I took notes.
They took us to dinner at a fabulous Italian restaurant tonight, Capri.
The food was wonderful.
Tomorrow is another full day of training so I may do a little shopping.
They have another fine restaurant on the agenda for tomorrow evening.
I will try and make some pictures in the next few days. We are here for the rest of the week.
ONE great plus is I am having time to catch up on reading blogs…plus up my Pinterest boards to 940.
Would you call that an ADDICTION? I think so.
Thanks for all your encouragement. Guess the post wasn’t so short.
