Road Trip Blog!

Hi everybody! My new blog is up and running. Stop by and check out what we have been doing this summer. We have been busy!

Happy New Year!

The title of this blog is "Chicago When It Sizzles". We certainly made sure our year lived up to the name. It has been an interesting time for us. We had so much fun exploring Chicago and living it up in the city. I didn't love our apartment... but the neighborhood, friends we met and the experiences we had were amazing. The kids were pretty healthy and in high spirits. (And what kid wouldn't be with all the adventures we had together?) 

My stress level was pretty high this year. Between the Sandy house disaster and then the house closing issues here, I almost checked myself into an asylum. When I get stressed out, Max and Maddie always tease me and start chanting, "Recalculating, recalculating, imploding, imploding..." in a robot voice. I am hoping to kick myself back into working order in '09. 

So here we are. The end of the year. The end of 2008 also brings an end to this blog. (It's sort of bugging me to type a blog named Chicago When It Sizzles, when we no longer live in Chicago.  Someone suggested that I change the title to The Chicago Suburbs When They Sizzle...but I decided that it was time to move on.)  I am setting up shop elsewhere. In mac world to be exact. Please visit my 2008 album there to get caught up on what we have been doing for the first half of the school year. (Each album will have text and descriptions like my blog posts here have. It was just faster to get caught up in album mode.) Here is the link:
Click on the earliest dated album and then continue on through.

Happy New Year!
