for the times they are a changin'

My sister and I went on a four day excursion to Chicago this past weekend. We missed two days of school for one reason and one reason only: so I could miss two days of school. My job is wearing me out! I haven't exactly warmed up to the teacher idea yet; I'm hoping to by May. Don't think me negative if you ask me if I like it and I say, "I don't know or not right now." I'm never one to make rash decisions, so that's why I'm giving it until May.

So about Chicago, it was marvelous weather! We ate at Giordano's for the best pizza ever. You can feel it slither down your throat and grow inch by quick inch to your hips. We hit up the Field Museum and the Shedd Aquarium--and yes I, who hate fish, went to see a large mass of fish--and we shopped till we literally dropped. We had to walk everywhere. It was such good exercise, but our feet paid for it. Shopping was good; eating was good. We stayed at the Hotel Allegro, this old hotel that had been renovated to be posh and modern. Great service and they use Aveda products and I LOVE Aveda products. We saw the musical "Wicked." I've never laughed so hard in a play before. It was a wonderful production that I highly recommend to everyone!
