Last night we had our annual Chicks no Dicks Christmas party at Max and Erma's. There were 22 people this year. It just keeps growing and growing. The food was good but the service was terrible. And I think I ate way too much last night. I woke up out of a sound sleep at 2:45 this morning with the taste and smell of vomit in my mouth and nose. Thankfully there was nothing on the bedding, but good god. I had to get up and drink a couple glasses of water and pop a couple antacids. Ugh. Never had that happen before, and I hope to never have it happen again.

We're delivering toys today to the Brown Family Center at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago. The BFC is a medical-free zone where the kids can go to play games and win prizes and just forget for a little bit that they're sick. We were there in October, and the prize closet was woefully empty. So we did a toy drive in our district (about 10 stores) to collect toys from the employees. Our collection box is overflowing! It's a wonderful thing. :)

After the drop-off, we're going to see about hitting Christkindlmarket. I hope we can, although it's supposed to be extremely cold today, so I don't know. You don't mess around with extreme tempertures in Chicago.
