Me: A Chicagoan back on home turf; a lawyer; missing my second home of Amsterdam.
Things I’d like to accomplish on Christmas
1) enjoying my dad’s 45-minute scrambled eggs (it’s a thing!)
2) enjoying my family
3) enjoying a movie
4) enjoying this year and all those who surround me with love
(See? Dad doesn’t even need to add cheese to the eggs; I’ve done it right here.)
In the middle of a full-on travel nightmare. First my flight from Dallas to Austin was cancelled and I drove the whole way.
Then I made it from Austin to Houston (after, I should point out, since I’m otherwise being a grump, an awesome 24 hours with my college friends in Austin) and even out of Houston. Then they turned my flight around mid-air and said we couldn’t get to Chicago.
After four hours of sleep and hundreds of dollars of cab fare, rental cars, and hotel, I’m gearing up for a full day of flying (no direct flights here) to try and get home.
