Twelve hours on the road and (drum roll please) Chicago! Domestic bliss is ours for the next 3 weeks at the Staybridge Suites in Oakbrook Terrace. Let me just say it’s pure magic…simply magic! Free laundry, a gym, and Tazo tea bags in the lobby; its clear that it doesn’t take much to please me. And she wrote, “This back-to-basics life-of-freedom is soothing my restless soul.” Alas, on a counter note, is it now a socially acceptable thing to run around hotels and their lobbies in bare feet? This seems to be a growing trend/epidemic as we have encountered multiple sightings in multiple cities now. I think I’ll try it, maybe take my pants off too, wear a goofy hat even. Anyway, a couple of days and we are settled in and ready to get some work done.
The best part of today, hearing an Edith Piaf song while eating at a French restaraunt. “OHHH!”, you gasp, “Well-a-la-ti-da!”
A tip of my (goofy) hat to you,
