I'm heading to Chicago tomorrow for a work training conference. And let me tell you what- this country girl is a bit scared of heading to the big city by myself! I'm taking the train to Union Station and then have to get to my hotel that's a few miles away. That means I have to get there by cab. I've never rode in a cab before- is it really like you see in the movies where you flag them down? How much does a cab ride even cost?! :) I'm sure this is really making me look ridiculous! haha
I'm really excited about this trip for a couple reasons. First, I get to take the train! I LOVE train rides- they put me to sleep! And I get to read on the train, which is a luxury that I rarely have time to do. Second, I get to explore a city I have never been in by myself. Although intimidating and scary, I am looking forward to ordering in a real Chicago pizza and watching TV in a room all to myself! Weird, I know, but some alone time will be nice. (Sorry, hunny!) I'm sure he will enjoy his alone time, also! However, I am going to really miss my Daisy and the comforts of home. I love the feeling of returning home after a short time away- it really makes me appreciate what I have all the more!
