Vegas Baby

Tomorrow I leave for Vegas.

I've been there a few times. Mostly a drive through while on one of my famous road trips. A day or two by the pools. Drinks delivered to you while you watch your kids frolic. Nothing like it. I'm a tad older now. Going to the pool by myself this time. Kids are grown up and not going. I saw in the news that the MGM was opening their celebrity party pool. I had to look that up. Yes, they do have a party pool. I quickly looked to see if they had a normal pool. They do but does the hotel I'm staying at? So, I looked it up. The Wynn has a gallery that shows bikinis & young 25 year old's with cute drinks in their hands. I'm going to ask at check in ... do you have a pool for 52 year old slightly over weight young at heart ladies who just want to sit in the warm of the yellow stuff and read her book. A pool where it doesn't matter if my cellulite is as white as a beluga ... and let's not mention my resemblance to the beluga ... I just want to relax by a pool with a drink & not be surrounded by silly 25 year old's. I hope I didn't go to the wrong place. And you may ask ... why am I going ... my nerdly husband is going to a nerdly convention & asked if I wanted to get away for a few days. He asked during a snow storm and I said yes. I didn't just say it. I yelled it in a high pitched voice. The kind where you wonder where did that come from. So, as I venture into my closest to pull out my warm clothes, I ponder what I should bring. As we are having an especially cold Winter ... it's Spring isn't it ... I haven't worn anything but sweats. Oh and let's not forget my extraness that I gave myself this year. Today I will be packing. Trying on possible outfits. I really just want to be a 52 year old lady enjoying herself in Vegas but I think I'm staying at the wrong hotel ... don't you ? I'll let you know how it went ... I'll even take a few pics ... could be I'll have lots of time on my hands ... if the going to the pool doesn't work out. So cross your fingers and your paws that they do have a special pool for old ladies like me.

Yes, my 16 year old son is fur sitting. He has a list a mile long with boxes he has to check off. I also counted the cans of food so if the count is off, I'll know. Grandma is also going to call & check up on him. I hope to call him while sitting by my mature ladies only pool ... ok, I'm not that old ...

I'm glad you found us, too, because it let me find you and your critters! I love your blog. You are so inspiring and, as one writer to another, you should definitely keep writing.

Have a wonderful time on your trip! I lived in Las Vegas for a short time when I was much younger, back in the early 70s. My father retired as a city detective in the midwest, then moved to Vegas to become a blackjack dealer - talk about a career change! Say hello to the Riviera for me, if it's still there. I worked there as the coat check girl!

Have a wonderful time and ignore the 25 year olds! They are just kids. Soak the sun, read and relax! Thanks for visiting my blog.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
