Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Well, the week is over, I've just finished mowing the lawn, put the first of three loads of laundry in the washer, will make dinner shortly, and then I have to start packing for a 5 day trip to Chicago.
I'm attending a conference that begins on Sunday, but I'm headed out a day early to meet up with some sorority sisters from my days at UW Madison who now live in Chicago. The weather is supposed to cooperate, so the plan is to hit the Cinco De Mayo festival in Little Village. I'm sure there will be some other sight seeing, perhaps an outbreak of shopping, and plenty of catching up!
The conference is right on the Chicago River in the heart of downtown on Wacker Drive, so I'm hoping to fit in the ubiquitous visit to the Shedd Aquarium or the Art Institute of Chicago (which looks to have a nice Impressionist exhibit going on), but I am going to be busy. I simply haven't had time to do any free time planning for this trip because I don't plan to have much free time, but if something pops up - I'll try and take advantage of it! Photos to follow.
