Last week I worked like a fiend so I could take Thursday and Friday off to go to Chicago. We ate wonderful food, went here for a little German Christmas spirit, here here and here for a little shopping, and I got my hair cut at Macy's (does anything make you feel better than a shampoo and haircut? Absolutely not). Then I got a cold, and then it took about 2 1/2 hours longer than it should have to get home thanks to a snowstorm. Both of which were not so bad, but I thought I'd mention them anyway.
So that's what I've been up to. That and wishing I lived in Chicago.
