Hello everyone in blogger world!
For those of you who care, I have returned home safe and sound from Sin City.
Results from the tournament… We played, we lost, we had a BLAST!!! We all wanted to make it to the money round, but that never happened. Next time.
Can’t say that I committed any real sins, but I did cave to an old, bad habit. I SMOKED WHILE I GAMBLED! Oh the horror! I quit smoking cold turkey back in 2003 when we decided to start a family. I smoked for 17 years, however was never addicted. To me, it was more of a really bad habit. It partnered well with my coffee, computer time, hanging out with friends, reading, etc… I know, some would argue that I was in fact addicted, blah blah blah… But I disagree. I really had no issue with quitting. I guess I would classify myself as a very casual smoker. I smoked a whole pack while in Vegas for the week and haven’t looked back. I suppose it fits well with the phrase, “Whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” However this time around it went to the border. (I still had some left and didn’t want to bring them home, so I finished my last one at the U.S. border!)
I want to give a special thanks to my PPH Cousin who guest blogged while I was away. THANKS PPH!!! I didn’t have the chance to blog anything before I left and I think what she wrote up was perfect!
I have yet to upload my pictures and go through them, however, that will be my task for tonight. I didn’t go overboard with the camera in Vegas as it was too bloody hot to walk the strip, etc. 108℉/42℃ was the hottest day while there. Other days were around the 102℉/40℃ range. With the blistering wind that felt like an open oven right in your face. EWWWWW! Besides, I took a whack of Vegas shots the last 2 times I was there. There is only so many pictures one can take of the same thing, right? This time, there are a bunch of odds and ends and shots from the drive home. I will also blog about some of the adventures with the drive within the next week or so. Right now, I am trying to get back into the groove of things.
I’m glad I’m home.
