So this weekend I was in Chicago. I love Chicago. But this was especially cool because my best friend came along for the trip PLUS I was at all these Commission on Women activities meeting some pretty impressive and accomplished women. Many of the women have served decades to ensure equality in all corners of our country and the world. The downside was it was the second weekend out of the past three I’ve been away from the kids. I will not do that again. It was too hard for me, for Bray, and for the kids. When I reunited with them last night, the first thing the little lady said was, “no go bye-bye no more.” I quickly replied, “No ma’am! No more bye-byes. The next time I get on a plane it will be the whole family going to Disney!” She was delighted. So was I.
Since I was in meetings non-stop, I haven’t had much of a chance to write. I do have a lot I want to write about this week, so I’ll work on it tonight. In the meantime, here’s this weekend in pictures:
