Well, after over 10 hours in a car today, I'm back home. elsaf and I left around 11:30am Chicago time and I stepped into my house just after 9:30pm Ohio time. It's now past my bedtime, but I thought I'd post to say I'd made it OK. And to thank my wonderful friends. Thank you, Elsa, for being my road trip partner & for all the fabulous cooking. Thank you, hergrace for coming to our birthday celebration. Thank you, judiang for being such a gracious host despite recently having one of the shittiest weeks ever. You three are great friends to hang out with and it'll be great when we can all get together again!
