Hello Chi town, *pixie's* here.
Well, I made it to Chicago without shedding a tear. Despite the too much coffee, not enough food induced nausea during the last hour of the bus ride the trip it was fine. The Art Institute was fabulous and my PRIVATE room is a nice size with a BIG bed. I've got free internet access (YAY!) and am getting ready to head out for a walk down Michigan Ave. and dinner (paid by the boss) at Buca di Beppo's. I do miss my boys...but I've already talked to them since check-in less than an hour ago.
