I was in Chicago last week for less than 24 hours (day trips stink!) and had the wonderful opportunity to meet up with another blogger, Lightning36. We've talked on the phone / exchanged emails / compared notes / played online poker together for years, but I had yet to meet him in person. We met for a 2 hour breakfast, and I felt like it was no different than 2 old friends seeing each other once again. In other words, the meet up was exactly how I'd imagine it would be.

It was a blast, and the kids had fun on it, too. My youngest was a natural (like her dad :-) ) and was doing tricks within the first few seconds. The resort amenities were pretty cool - there was a lot to do on site - but the room was simply awful! It was rustic, to say the least - about the quality of what I'd imagine a Motel 6 to be like. Whatever; we had fun.
The year is quickly coming to a close, and I'm feeling the pressure of all the things I have to do before the end. I have a paper to write, a final to study for, a work trip to Huntsville, AL, and a host of other goodies. I'm continuing to play online for Bitcoins - I've become a watcher of the price. At the time of this writing, the price of Bitcoin stands slightly more than $1,000 USD! Incredible!
Hope you all have happy holidays!
