Linsleyd - I remember when we were talking about that before. Thanks for chiming in here again! I thought if I gave this its own thread I would get more responses.
I really need to see more of Philly than I did the last time (March). We are going again in December, too. This conference is always a 36-hour trip and I was dragged kicking and screaming the last time and I'm not so happy about going again, just because business travel requires an awful lot of arrangements to be made at home for DD while I'm gone. Last time I got a cell phone call from the girl that drove DD home from school that she'd been in a minor accident and couldn't drive DD home from school til her car got fixed. So there I was in Philly making carpooling arrangements for north of Boston at 8:00 at night! I thought I might get out of this July trip, but no such luck and I already knew that December is a definite.
How much of a cab ride do you think South Street is from the Doubletree?
The term "working mother" is redundant.
