Life Is Good....

Life is Good these days.  I have a job, my health & sanity, my daughter is doing awesome and I have someone in my life I really care about. It is amazing what timing has to do with relationships. I have known, and been good friends with, this guy for just shy of 30 years and all of a sudden I have seen him through different eyes. Wow...I really didn't see this coming either. Of course, things are still very much in their infancy, but for me to WANT to spend all my FREE time with someone is really, very different than the norm. I gladly helped him paint and move into a new place this weekend, during a damn frickin heat wave, and although a bit on the sore side this morning and probably dropped 5 lbs in sweat alone....I haven't laughed so much and in a long time....I am really very content at the I said, "Life is Good!"

Dear Santa....

I was wondering if I could get my Christmas present early this year. I know it's a little early in the year, but I have been a good girl...I promise I have...I am not asking for a lot...I would like it to be between 5'10" - 6'0" tall, with broad shoulders and a six-pack, so obviously in excellent shape. Somewhere between Gerard Butler and Robert Downey Jr (see photos if you need examples). If I could get it now...I would be extremely grateful and promise to take good care of my present forever. I would not forget about it in a few weeks, like what happens with other Christmas gifts. I would hold it and cherish it for as long as it lasts. I won't need any spare parts either. I promise not to break it or abuse it...just love it forever.

If you can do this for me Santa...I won't ask for another present EVER again.

P.S. Thanks in advance for your help!!!

Far, Far Away....

I write more the land far, far away. I have more time to read a good book, watch T.V., surf the Web, give myself a mani - pedicure, take a vacation (of course, that one costs money), visit with my get it, right?

I really don't mind that the days are in warp speed and there is no time to SNACK all the time. Good way for me to trim down...just get a full-time job! haha....I had a great time in Las Vegas. My gambling story goes like this.....

Monday morning I met the new employers in the lobby of the South Point Hotel & Casino. As I was waiting for them to arrive the "Wheel of Fortune" machines were calling out to me. I texted my BFF and asked if I should bet $20 on the machines...she said "Play $40 and Good Luck."

So.......after a long day working and dinner at the Cheesecake Factory...yummy, yum yum... I got back to my room, changed out of my suit and went down to the slot machine that was calling my name so loudly. There were two Wheel of Fortune $1 machines side-by-side and the right one was open. The machine sucked up my $20 literally out of my wallet and I gave her a few pulls (betting all 5 coins). On the fourth pull a got a few bucks back...on the fifth pull I hit a jackpot and Wheel of Fortune was announced. If you've never heard the machine, you are missing out. There is something about the sound that is an incredible turn-on to me! Well, my heart was nearly pounding out of my chest by this time and the dude next to me was just staring.....I pushed on the button and watched as the wheel spun around...praying that I would hit BIG. Well, I didn't hit big...but got a $75 jackpot. I immediately cashed out, grabbed my receipt and left. I was there all of maybe 3 minutes tops....The dude next to me just shook his head in disgust (he looked like he was loosing big-time, so sorry, not).

Yep...that is my big Las Vegas gambling story and I stopped there, resisting the urge to play any more. Yes....I came back a winner with a new job and an extra $55 bucks in my pocket! One hell of a week, if you ask me!
