I knew I could get you all 1 more time with that title ;-) I haven't posted since Chicago...what's up with that?

First of all I want to say ...I love Chicago ...I love all the ladies, the planners that made it happen, and I've told them all personally how much I appreciate them. And last but not least, I love all my BOOB friends!

My roomy BG, is the BEST! She is an amazingly beautiful woman inside and out! Thanks for all the memories....Nancy!

It was so great meeting you all and reading your blogs and seeing your pictures afterwards...can't wait for next year!

My husband joined me for 2 day's after everyone left Chicago. We had a great time! The first night we were moved, to the top floor, king size room, with a great view of the city(at the BOOB'S price)...nice! After a great dinner at Valare's, we came back to our room and sat in the dark by the open window, looking at the colorfully lit buildings, in our comfy chairs, listening to the talented clarinet player, on the street below(remember him?) Drank a great bottle of wine...and well the rest is history. The next day we went on the river architectural cruise(loved it) and that night we walked down to this club called the BACK ROOM, a great jazz band played and we managed to close the place...FUN!

In the 6 days I was in Chicago I never went to sleep before 2 or 3am. I can't wait to go back....


Just wanted to hit on some thoughts I've had about the band and health issues. The rash I've had for 2 months now ( Urticaria) per Tess and my Internist, is waning down. I stopped taking my hormone suppository (Vagifem) about 6 weeks ago (thanks to Sandy) and I think that might have been the cause...or not. I have been taking antihistamines everyday for 2 months to try and stop the rash and I think it may have made my band... be NOT so tight. Because I have really been hungry and able to eat most anything.... Today is my second day of no antihistamine's and I will keep you informed ...hopefully my restriction comes back. I don't want to get a fill because I have 10.6 cc's right now and it use to be perfect.

Sandy--this might be something to consider for future airline trips and such. A lot easier than having a defill.

Glad to hear from ya! That's great that you and your hubby got a nice room for the BOOBs rate. :)

And I did hear that clarinet player, but I thought maybe I was just crazy! lol

Thanks for all the support on my blog... glad you had such a wonderful time in Chicago. I'm not up on the health issues you said in this post- but I do hope it is all sorted out for the better soon.
