N'Awlins, NOLA, Chocolate City Here We Come!



ThatManILove and I are trying to get packed and ready for a week of meetings and fun in New Orleans. I’m almost packed. House is clean. Cupboard is packed. Dogs are managed and ready for the housesitter. Laundry is folded and put away. TMIL is going through accounting paperwork.

I’ve moved our flights back three times. Friday to Saturday, Saturday to Sunday, Sunday to later Sunday.


I believe that this household might be experiencing some severe flight delays...ones that can’t be blamed on Crapinental. (And yes, we’re flying Southwest!)


I’ll try and blog from the Chocolate City, but no promises, Cher! Happy trails…until we meet again!

I've always wanted to see New Orleans -- okay, less for a year or two after Katrina, but otherwise pretty consistently.

OK. But if you can't blog from there, can you at least take pictures of chocolate so we can hate you all the more when you get back? :)

Enjoy yourselves!! Go to the old Blacksmith Shop for me. And indulge yourself in chocolate and beignets, for me. ;-)

How can you possibly be taking a trip when you know that I'm stuck in the Godforsaken state of Illinois all throughout spring break? How insensitive!

Will I at least get a crappy keychain or a tee shirt, or one of those horrible shot glasses from the tourist shop? Something? Anything? Really, I won't complain... probably. Crap! I can't believe you're doing this.

My daughter's in NOLA. She and her husband (and son) are stationed there at the naval base. They aren't too fond of it, but they're not tourists. Have a great time!
