My trip.....my exhausting trip, but the good kind of exhausted. Everything went smoothly at the airport. However I do recommend if you are riding with people over 150 pds, do not sit in the same row. I made a mom and dad sandwich on the 4 hour flight, it felt as if I was being reborn.
Dad walked my ass off. He is the most fit obese hypertensive diabetic, knee replacement man I know. I still cant get over the size and the distance between the hotels. On TV it all looks like its close up, aha TV is deceiving.
Loved Freemont street, went right past the Jail to get there. I asked the cabby to stop so I could talk to Grissom but he wouldn't let me out. Later my Mom tried to explain that Grissom is only a charachter on tv...sheesh. OH OH but I did see REAL CSI at one of the Casinos. I tried to take a picture but Dad wouldn't let me.
We spent a lot of time at Harrahs. If I ever went back, I think that's where I would like to stay.
It was just such a great time. I only thought of the kids maybe once or twice----bad Mom. I figure it will be another 10 years till I have a real vacation again, I didnt want to waste it thinking of my offspring.
(singing) I'm off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz-Vegas.
Everyone be good to daddy while I am gone, please?
Cody- Get ready for school in 1 hour instead of two please, go easy on Dad. Please change your underwear everyday and brush your teeth twice. Do not break any bones, or have any imaginative diseases while I am gone. Have a hug ready for me when I get home. I'm going to miss my daily fix of your arms around me.
Shane-Put your pull up in the trash instead of the bathroom floor (Don't worry honey, I wont tell anyone you still wet the bed.) Do not flood the bathroom by overfilling the tub again. I would love to see Gimlis ears intact when I get home, no excessive pulling. Leave the kittens in the box, they are not calling your name. I'll miss your gap toothed smile, so save a some for me.
Allison-You are going to have a grand ole time with daddy being home for 5 days. Please don't eat every piece of paper you can get your little hands on. Make sure you take your braces to school, we don't want to get yelled at again. Don't pee on daddy when he takes your diaper off, he really doesn't like that much. Keep The boys in line for me okay. I am going to miss your giggle every morning when I wake you up.
Patrick-I love you more than you will ever know. Thank you so much for making this trip happen. Please no heart attacks while I am gone this time :) You are a great man and father for taking on our 3 children alone for 5 days, May God have mercy on your soul.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so I here. Maybe I'll get lucky and stumble onto to a chubby chasers convention, otherwise I'm SOL.
Really im going to see the sites, Really!! I even anally went about searching the strip like a real tourist, deciding how many destinations I can hit in 72 hours. My mom is splurging and taking me on a once in a lifetime trip--Vegas Baby. I surmise I'll try to hit all my tourist sites before 9pm, then gamble from 9pm-9am. I figure I can sleep when I get home..........Im sure my kids will understand Mommy just had a weekend of binge gambling.
