Just getting a tad excited for my 'real' ever solo trip. Now, some of you know that I lost my DH last summer and of course, life has and never will be the same. Friday, 4/26 would mark our 33rd wedding anniversary. That alone is giving me great anxiety and I told others that I am going to "skip town and go off the grid" and not face the day. But, where better to go sulk and mourn than a sunny day in Vegas??? My kids don't know where I am going, but they do know I am skipping town. Only 3 people actually know when and where I am going. I'm sure once I'm there social media will give away my whereabouts............maybe? I just need a break from it all! Those of you who live here in the mid-west can attest to the horrible, snowy winter we've had. I am sick of shoveling, pulling snow off the roof (TWICE) and eventually snow-blowing. So bad, in fact that we have had SIX snow days off from work this year, totally unheard of!!! AND, to top it off, I recently had surgery on my wrist. That makes 3 surgeries in about 13 months!!!!!! GOD DAMN, I need a break!!!! DH (God love him) and I went to LV at least 2x a year, usually in December (our birthdays} and again in April (anniversary) I'm trying to stay with tradition. I've actually been to LV recently. I went in December for what I thought was going to be my first solo trip, but a friend decided to tag along, and I'm glad she did as we had a great time. I was also to LV in March for a mom/daughter trip with 2 SIL's and their daughters. Group trips are so much darn work. I've found after a group trip, I need another trip just to de-stress!!! So, I am very much looking forward to some down time. PLANS include 3 nights (comp) at the Orleans and then moving DT and staying at The D for the next 5 (3 comp). I have NO plans, well......actually I did have a trip to Death Valley but cancelled. So, I will be spending lots of time in the pool, waaaaaay too many cocktails (note to self: don't forget to drink water!!!! ), and some low-rolling gambling. After 8 nights, my liver is going to HATE me!!! First stop after hotel will be going to pick up a weeks worth of some legal tasty treats to help me unwind and relax. Hehehe Plans are to try to keep ya all updated with some pics and posts. I can't say this will be live, because, well....alcohol happens!!! Last time I tried that in December my phone actually died on day 2. Totally. Had to Uber/Lyft to a Verizon store a couple of days later (because I thought it would 'eventually work') and get a new phone. That was quite an ordeal. Last time in March my suitcase was overweight both ways costing me another $100 in baggage fees. To top it off, my scale at home died like 2 days before the trip...DOH. Hopefully things work out better this time, but maybe I will be in a "I don't give a shit" type of mood and see what happens. One more day of work. Checking out at 3 tomorrow for a meeting and not going back to work until May 6th. Hee Haw lets have some fun!!!!!!!!!
