I was on vacation the last week of August and I actually got out and did some fun stuff… first off I had to reinstall Windows XP on my machine a few times since the HD where everything was installed decided to up and die on me earlier in the weekend that started my vacation.

Then on Monday, I went to the Field Museum and saw the Darwin exhibit. Tuesday, I went to the Garfield Park Conversatory and saw Niki in the Garden with HMC. Lovely artwork but too damn hot for a stroll in the garden.

Wednesday was quiet until E and I along with his family took a cruise on the Mystic Blue. The rest of the weekend was good as I got to see Clare for her baby shower before she went back to OH with her honey.

The remainder of the vacation was blissfully quiet, but my first day back to the office was crazy! But I did attend a lunch with the Kenyan Ambassador.
