Last post 'til Friday the 13th

Tomorrow, I have a chaotic day of errands (most important being highlights and a haircut) and packing for my trip(s) to Washington D.C. and Chicago. The weather is going to be cold in both cities, and quite frankly, I'm okay with that. I must be one of the few people who actually likes to go sightseeing when it's chilly outside. As if getting down to the airport and getting through security isn't bad enough here in Atlanta, I have to wake up at 4:45 a.m. Wednesday to catch my flight to D.C. I'm starting to wonder why I booked that criminally early flight now. Oh, well...nobody ever said an extra afternoon in D.C. was a bad thing. I have lots of things planned with my friend Kelly, and I've got my fingers-crossed that the cherry blossoms are actually blooming now, too (regardless of the pending colder weather).

As for Chicago, right now the high for opening day at Wrigley Field is 46. Maybe the Blackhawks will show up to play instead of the Cubs. (God, I hope not.) Mike and I have many other things planned in Chicago besides going to opening day, though. We have reservations at some great restaurants (or so I hope) and we're going to the Cezanne to Picasso exhibition at the Art Institute. No trip to Chicago would be complete without visiting Navy Pier and walking along Michigan Avenue, too. I won't be visiting Sears Tower this time, though. I never had a fear of heights until I went up to the top of the Sears Tower many years ago. I've been afraid of heights ever since.

I'll post a trip report when I get back.

Assume now that it's Sunday, April 8th. I have three things to say:

Happy Easter to you all!!!

Happy Birthday to Linda!!!

Set your TiVo because Season 3 of Entourage debuts on HBO at 10:00 p.m.
