They lied. They promised that whatever happened in Vegas would stay in Vegas. Even the gal at the airline counter said any pounds I gained would remain there. Not so. I returned with one more big, ugly pound hanging around my waist. I ate a lot of wheat. And they served bacon, potatoes and wheat along with my eggs in the mornings. At least I always chose a beneficial or neutral protein for dinner. Yep, that’s it folks. I chose good protein. Sheesh! No wonder it followed me home.
Anyway, we had a great time. The convention was wonderful. There were 14,000 people there. Besides all the great barbershop singing, we managed to take in three shows at the various casinos. And, I thought, as long as I was in the gambling Mecca of the world, that I would try my hand at it. I had planned on losing $200 and call it a vacation, but by the time I had lost $75, I was so bored with it I quit. I just couldn’t get the point. At least that’s one addiction I won’t have to worry about conquering. Goodness knows I have enough problems to fix.
It’s been a busy, busy week at work catching up, and trying to get ahead while we get ready to take off to visit daughter for a week. She’s been pretty lonely and needs her Mom to go shopping with and buy her things. That always makes her feel better. Hubby is coming along too. He’ll fix the things she needs help fixing. Food won’t be a problem, as we will be cooking in most of the time. Maybe I can leave that ugly pound in Hawaii!
