I think I remembered to bring everything that I needed to bring (yes, Judi, I remembered your presents). I fed Leo 2 days worth of food (which he had mostly eaten before I headed off to Elsa's). The drive was uneventful (my favorite kind of drive) and I listened to Chumbawamba the whole way (their new album twice). And once I arrived, Elsa & I went out for Thai food. I had pad thai, as usual and Elsa had Drunken Noodles. Both were tasy.
The goal is to get up early in the morning and head off to Chi Town. We're going to try & avoid the bad rush hour traffic. And once we arrive? Hopefully lots of fun, fun, fun! :-)
