Your Three Words

OFF TO VEGAS!
Excuse me while I whine for a bit.  It's been a LONG week.  A stressful one.  The type that makes you say "wow, I need the weekend another week to recoup".  Not to mention it was my first week back to the office since the 15th of December.  TOUGH.  

And just when it seems like things should slow down, for the hubster and I, the count down is on.  In 2 days we leave for Vegas.  5 days in Vegas for work.  I'm already exhausted, and I haven't even left.  And I'm not a huge fan of Vegas.  I know most people love it, but this will make my 3rd trip or maybe 4th (I've lost count) and while it's fun to see the hotels, that's the extent of my interest.  I've never been to or left Vegas not feeling completely and utterly exhausted. 

Not all is bad, and I am grateful for the oppurtunity to travel and catch up with collegues, new and old.  So I'll cork my whine for now.
 
The boy is staying home with his Mimi.  This will be our first big trip away.  I've traveled since he was born, but Chris was home with him.  And we've gone away for a few days, but never half way across the country and never for a week.  Needless to say - mom's a little nervous.  Add to it the fact that he's got a blocked tube in his right ear and another ear infection, I'm dreading Sunday.  Fortunately he's a tough little guy, so I know he'll be fine, but I can't help but worry.

Normally, I try to spend the day before any trip, especially work trips, relaxing with the husband (and now kiddo) and resting.  Tomorrow that's just not in the cards.  Laundry needs to be done, baby food needs to be cooked, the kiddo needs to have everything of his packed up, the dogs have be packed up, I need to pack...the list goes on and on. Oh and our suitcases - well, they're still full of clothes from our last trip!  

So we're off to Vegas.  Cheers!

Aww, I hope you have fun! I've never been to Vegas, so I'd be thrilled to go... but like you, once I saw everything, I'd be done with it!

Try and relax a bit!
