Time to celebrate!

Yesterday was a very important day of celebration for me.

It marked the last day of 2008 that I will enter or leave O'Hare Airport.

According to American Airlines, I traveled 128,053 miles on their jet planes this year.

Terrible way to spend a life. Well, of course, it could be much worse. I have little about which I could complain in my life. Except for being away from family, friends and home.

Now, however, I am home. It is freezing cold outside my home, but warm inside. I am happy and content.

I will not, should not have to return to O'Hare until January 12 -- and that will be for a trip to Puerto Rico.

Not so awful, I suppose....

Congrats on not having to fly for the rest of the year... I am sure your family is also excited about this. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Steven and family. BTW: Portland got some of your cold weather and it was nice to stay home yesterday with my kids and enjoy the snow. Unfortunately its all ice now and more snow predicted for Wednesday.

A bit late but I think this picture helps sum up your frequent flyer status best.
