My son is due to graduate on 03/09. I am the only one that will be attending and family has pooled money to purchase my airline ticket which I have done. I have not gotten a room yet because after reading some of the discussions here and elsewhere I realize that something as basic as not shining his shoes well enough could keep him from participating. I cannot have people spending money that could be lost due to something like this happen. I am distraught, worried and have no idea what to do. We did not purchase one of the refundable tickets because no one could come up with 1000.00.
Now if he is graduating as I of course am hoping I am struggling to figure out how to get from OHare to GL as I am unable to rent a car and I am completely confused by the subway, bus and train systems! I am on an extremely tight budget and did find a hotel that served a free breakfast and light dinner snack about 4 miles from the graduation site, but am not sure if there is a shuttle to and from. Does anyone know of a website that lists which hotels within a radius that offers free shuttle? I am a total mess right now and completely panicking so any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

I would suggest asking Sarge if he may be able to help hook you up with anyone else renting his cab. Perhaps it won't be full and you can share the cost.
