I'm Home!!!

I'm back from Vegas and although I love Vegas, it's good to be home again. Boy are my feet tired. I sure got my exercise in Vegas. We pushed my mom all over Vegas in her wheelchair. We saw almost all the casinos...lost money in most of them too. For the record, I did end up on the losing end, but if I hadn't had a string of good luck on Sunday, it would have been worse... We saw two shows. "O" at the Bellagio, which, quite frankly redesigns your view of wonderful as only a Cirque du Soleil show can. We also saw Mama Mia at Mandalay Bay, which was wonderful as well. We ate at many good restaurants. The highlight of the whole trip though, Carmen you will really appreciate this, was when this man does a double take (literally - I thought that was only a movie thing) and then procedes to follow me halfway accross the casino telling me "You're cute...No, I'm really really serious, You're cute... I'm not lying...You're really cute." Now, I'd been walking around Vegas all day in the same clothes I traveled in, outside pushing a wheelchair around in 30mph wind gusts which blew up dust from nearby constructions sites and sweating because it was like 90 degrees and I could feel the grit all over my you can just imagine how cute I felt at that moment. To that man, whoever you are, we may have laughed, but you truly made the weekend. :-)

I took today off to recover from my vacation and I could probably use a few extra days, but I peeked at my e-mail and it's very scary. Tomorrow is going to be a busy, busy day.

I'm kind of feeling that post vacation let down. I need to plan a new vacation to look forward to...anyone up for Italy in the spring???

    Glad you had fun! I would've been laughing so hard at that guy - but it would've made my day, too!

    I think we should make something from the Big Girls book together and be twins! What do you think?

    As for the Vegas man, UH! HELLO!

    You didn't flirt with him? Get him to buy you a drank? Nuffin!

    You'll have to give me all the dish tomorrow at Thursday Night Knit Night!
