We left Arlington, VA at 8:30am….saw this sign right away…
After seeing this sign, we drove a little more and then stopped for lunch and filled up with gas.
Then we drove from one end of this state to the other, mostly in and out of heavy rain. And then stopped for a snack and more gas.
Then 2 more signs…
And at 7:30pm, we made it…. to Chicago!!
My oldest graduated from University of Chicago last June but had to start a job ASAP in NYC so friends stored her stuff. Tomorrow and Saturday, we retrieve her stuff and then do this trip in reverse on Sunday!! One thing that helped today – listening to the This American Life S-Town podcast. I highly recommend it!
Thanks for the space and opportunity to write for 31 days!! I did it, again, for the 4th year in a row. Thanks for all the comments. Thanks for writing such great stories for me to read each day!! Really….THANK YOU!! I love this writing community and love having writing friends. Though I will be busy today and all weekend, I WILL miss posting tomorrow and reading tomorrow. PLEASE consider showing up on TUESDAYS all year long. Because now we are ALL writers and NEED a space to post our stories, the ones only WE can tell!!
