Help Us Plan Our Next Trip!

Sharon and I going to make a quick weekend trip (celebrities, you have been given fair warning!) and are looking for things we should NOT MISS.

It’s been almost TWENTY YEARS (I can’t believe it) since I visited the city of Chicago and 13 years since Sharon did. We have a whole day on Saturday to sightsee and really have no idea what to do.

Don’t hate us.) and I know I cleared these dates with Sharon before I booked the airline tickets. But sometimes life happens and plans change. This time we needed to change our travel dates because Sharon was cast in the choir of Encore! ¬†for their upcoming production of Hairspray at the Dr. Phillips Center in Orlando (shameless plug – tickets are on sale here).¬† This did cause a bit of a dilemma as Sharon now has a rehearsal scheduled for the day we were going to be¬†flying to Chicago, and that just wasn’t going to work.

When we realized this, I immediately was relieved because I knew I had booked the Continue reading “The pleasure of changing or cancelling a flight with Southwest Airlines”
