I love Chicago, but…

Chicago theatreI seriously love living by Chicago.  It’s a world class city with everything you could want.  I love going downtown just for the feel of it.

But…I was through the city on Friday (Soldier Field), Saturday (family gathering in Evanston), and Sunday (Cubs Game).  And I’m ready to hang out in the suburbs for a while (after I make an O’Hare run later today!).

Besides spending 9 hours on the road/in traffic, it was also hard on the wallet…

Tolls for three days (stinkin’skyway): $27 

Parking for two events:  $38

Gas, food at the games, tolls for the van using my other I-pass: too much too think about.
