A little over two weeks away from the Chicago trip and starting to really get excited about it. Hopefully this mild almost spring-like weather we’ve been having will hold out and be like that the first weekend of April in Chicago. Wouldn’t that be nice!
Also, I’m going to get my first passport, since I’m thinking about some other trips next year. This way, I don’t have to run around to get that taken care of if I do decide to go to Japan to visit my friends who are living in Tokoyo.
I also am considering taking a weekend trip to Montreal. It was one of the places that the guys and I were thinking about going to this spring, but Chicago won out. It is only a six hour drive and I have a free night stay at the Marriot SpringHill Suites by Marriot coming up.
I’ve never stayed at a SpringHill Suite before, but it looks promising – larger hotel rooms, a good free breakfast, good amenities. They have a web site at www.tryspringhillsuites.com that offers a 25% discount if you reserve through that web site. Yes, you’re welcome.
