They're coming!!!

The parents are coming! The parents are coming! (not the British. I don't think they'd care much about conquering Indiana)

Mark's coming too. They'll be here tomorrow afternoon. Then we will all set off happily together to DO CHICAGO in 2.5 days. Heck yes. My Thanksgiving break is so much cooler than yours. I'll be eating deep-dish pizza instead of turkey.

My mom has been fanatically planning this out, which is good, because the rest of us would just wander around and gawk. Now we're actually going to do things. My only request was that the time of the USC/ND game finds us in a loud sports grill with other ND fans and a big-screen TV. Not sure if that's going to happen, knowing my family and their tendencies towards calm activity, but a girl can ask.

So please say a prayer for a loaded minivan trekking from Georgia to Indiana today and tomorrow, and for everyone who's going out to see the USC game. Let's hope that everyone is safe and has fun!


  1. How did I miss this?

    I have an ex-boyfriend in Chicago. It'll be our secret. He's very rich. And very handsome. And a terrible husband. He's on his third wife.

    Come to think of it, he was a terrible boyfriend, too.

    Have fun!!!

  2. Ha! Touche. His sister was my bestfriend in high school, and we recently caught up with each other, as life would have it, because of a death. These things happen when you get old, wakes become like mini0high school reunions. Depresing really, except that in my culture, it's an event, a party, a get together that incidentally had a dead guest.
