That was followed by a quick lunch with mr_curmudgeon, and then we worked our way to Evanston, arriving just as rince1wind texted us as to the availability of her guest room! We had a nice long conversation with her, her girls, and her husband; some Giordano's pizza (AH!), and then to bed. At that point, though I dozed through the flights and the drive, I hadn't slept the night before so I was out, quickly.
We'll see what the week brings!
