This blog update will be pretty short 'n sweet as we've been up since 4:10 AM. Off to the Fort Lauderdale airport, and then flight to Chicago. The airport was a zoo - long lines everywhere including security which wound round and round outside on the sidewalk! Guess the spring breakers are traveling on towards home?
Arrived in Chicago early but then had to wait 45 minutes for a free gate - things were backed up cause of storms that came thru earlier Finally, deplaned, got our rental car and on our way. Stopped in Hinckley for lunch and while we were eating, it poured BIG time and then onto Dixon. Checked into the Comfort Inn and visited in lobby with Sharon and Karen (sisters) - so good to catch up and hear their stories of what's been happening with Mom these past few weeks.....
Mark Karen and I went to the Crystal Cork for some wine and then to Sue (another sister) and Tom's for dinner.....the family are starting to trickle in (Sue's daughters Katy and Molly with their husbands and sister Doris) for Mom/Grandma's "celebration of life". ``Sue prepared a wonderful chicken parmesan dinner. We all sat around the dining room table laughing (and some tears) reminiscing and sharing lots of stories! Very enjoyable evening but we are exhausted, so back to hotel and dreamland!
Can't believe it's the end of March - think this month is going out like a lion as it's
chilly and very windy! The wind is howling outside our room!
2 big days coming up so may not get back to the blog for a few days!
Enjoy your weekend!
