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....
