Weekend Catch Up & Then Some....

I am beyond tired. Over the weekend I made the 2 hour one way trip to visit my Mom in Small Town, USA. I actually stayed the night at her house on Friday and got up super duper early on Saturday and helped her with her garage sale. Bless her heart, after staying up until 1am working on things, she decided she better get up early enough to wake the rooster on Saturday morning. Seriously? I was up and dressed and ready to go before 6 am. (this did include a shower and a made bed) I had a hard time making the trip back home, as I was so tired.



I did return home to a clean house and no dirty laundry. That was nice. My hubs was even nice enough to unload the truck for me, while I showered.  We ended up going out to eat and the next thing I know there are lots of extra people at the house. No biggie, it’s all fun. Hubs had people out in the garage playing pool and Kobi had a couple of friends over to watch movies. All is good and then we decide to load up the cars and head to the casino. Next thing I know I am using the restroom and I about fell asleep on the toilet in the casino bathroom. I look down at my phone to find out that it is 4am. Really? Needless to say, I gathered everyone else up and back home we went. By the time I made it to bed, I had been up 24 hours on only 4 hours of sleep the night before.


Mother’s Day we slept in until 11. Six hours of sleep never felt so good. We decided to not dirty the kitchen and go out to eat at a nearby chicken place. While there I try to play a joke on my sister-in-law about going to the casino…. A new one. Next thing I know… we are on our way to pick her up and go have some fun. We did make it home early and was tucked in bed by 10:30ish….


We have been going to the casino a lot lately. I would not say we have a gambling addiction. We have a fun addiction. We do not go blow our entire paychecks…. We take a set amount of cash. Usually $ 40 – 100. When that is gone, then it is gone. We use it more of a source of entertainment. We don’t go to the movies, we don’t go to the bars….sometimes we have friends over, but the casino is our time away from home fun.


Monday I thought I would get home from work and catch up on some sleep. Wrong! A few of these


decided that I needed to be kept awake. This picture was taken by a friend, sorry for the size.  ( The better pic is on my home computer and well I am posting at work - ON MY LUNCH HOUR) Anyhow, everyone I know is OK, there are a few with damage, but that is repairable. I will post details soon.....
