Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season!
We rang in the new year in Chicago with JP's family. We went to a great seafood house and were treated to a four-course dinner. It snowed like crazy which looked beautiful from the cozy inside. However, it was a bit much for JP's dad and his dad's girlfriend who are use to the gentle island breeze. :)
Our week in Chicago consisted of lots of shopping (the tradition is the ladies go shopping and the guys go do other stuff...), eating, drinking fabulous wines and lots of laughing. My French speaking skills were put to the test and I was given until July for my "test". My French consists of a few words and basically no phrases so I have a lot of work to do.
This morning, JP went with me so I could fly out to Vegas. We were little (pretending) city dwellers taking the train to the airport. I do have to admit that I was okay with leaving the FREEZING cold of Chicago (and eventually getting back to Detroit where I can drive my car around as much as I want to...) to the approx. 50-degree weather in Vegas. While I'd like to say that I'm enjoying the sights and sins of Vegas, I've been working almost non-stop since landing.
Anyway, I'm going to wrap up so I can get to bed. I'm feeling a little cold coming on and I refuse to let it get out of control. Goodnight from Vegas!
