Great Bears win last night...and tribute to Mike Ditka....too bad it was so bitterly cold, but you have to really hand it to fans, who can tolerate that for 3-4 hours....

Ahem: 72 hours to California!

I have a pretty jam-packed schedule for a "restful" vacation. Friday having lunch with niece (staying at niece's house) and one of my oldest friends (we met in like '76 or '77) then dinner with the family and niece and I are outta there going to a club to meet up with Union Maid.

Saturday, birthday party for niece's friend's kids, lotsa people, lotsa Mexican food made by real Mexicans…IOW, a taste of how I grew up. Saturday afternoon/night a small trip to the beach.

Sunday…lunch/hang out with Union Maid. Sunday night Christmas in the Park ( http://www.christmasinthepark.com/home.html )…been too long since I've been there.

Monday: Brunch with my first ever boyfriend/one of my oldest friends and maybe a motorcycle ride if he buys it before the weekend is over. Maybe another quick trip to the beach. Dinner with my oldest friend.

Thanks Florida folks. I booked us a place in South Beach tonight.
JMW, is that too far from you if we meet in the middle.
Haha, what Race said.:)

Ft. Lauderdale is totally doable, or if you want to come up to Boca or Delray...? What are the dates that you'll be in FL?

We only have 5 nights that we can be gone, unfortunately. We will be there on Saturday, the 22nd of March. We will be probably leave at 4AM or 5AM and hope to be down there by dinner time or a little before on Saturday. We have to leave to come home on Thursday the 27th, as my in laws plan on leaving on Friday.

So, there's not really a good weekend night, unfortunately. We could do Saturday for a late-ish dinner or drinks on the 22nd if that works best for everyone.

Google maps says it is just under 12 hour drive for us, but depending on how much I drive (Bambi drives like Ms. Daisy is in the car with her, lol), I can probably shave at least an hour to if not closer to 2 hours off of that. So, Saturday should be doable if that works.

If not, any time would be fine for us.

Looks like the date might be tough for me, but you all will have to remind me and, if I can swing it, maybe I'll try and get down there!!!

It's Chicago. It's winter. It will get colder and windier. What's the big deal?

I remember the trip from Chicago to SC in the Batmobile.

Oh, you're driving - then you'll be passing right by me on the way to Miami.:) But you may not want to stop and/or get back in the car after such a long drive on that day. Weeknights are fine for me too but we can work out the details closer to your trip.

Do you check your PMs? I'll send you my email and cell.

*sigh*

My dogs keep going to the back door to be let out and when I open it, the cold hits them and they're like "Wait, it's *still* super cold out? I'm good." and they walk away.
