Vegas, here we come!
I got up at the ungodly hour of 5:15 AM, and have been preparing and packing and getting a last-minute rush job to a client. Now I have a half-hour to spare and am having my coffee before I hit the road to go pick John up. Dropping a quick atheist’s prayer to the Freeway Gods that there aren’t any accidents or issues on Highway 15. It’s a 4 1/2-hour drive, but since it’s not a holiday weekend and it will be off peak-traffic time, we should be OK. Actually, we’ve driven to Vegas countless times and only once did we get stuck when an accident occurred. But of course, I worry about that every single time.
I am way overpacked. When I go to Shadow Lane it’s a little easier, because I have planned outfits, but here, it’s going to be very casual and I wanted choices. I brought two dresses, but mostly it’s yoga pants and leggings and comfortable shirts. At first I tried to plan out which panties to bring, and then thought, who am I kidding?? It’s a spanking gathering! Panties are the headliners! So I snatched up fistfuls from the drawer and simply stuffed them into the bag. I think I may have about 12-15 pairs for four days.
Phone charger? Check. Camera and charger? Check. Pillow? Check. (I hate hotel pillows. Too poufy.) Makeup bag? Check. (Yes, I left that home one time. Not fun. Had to rebuy everything.)
John is feeling a bit better. When he went to the cardiologist on Monday, she recommended a diuretic to relieve the fluid pressure — said it would feel better on his heart and maybe help him sleep better too. Sure enough… he took one, and on that night, he slept for a total of seven hours. And it wasn’t a fluke; he slept well the next night too. So he’s feeling… well, human, instead of like a zombie. Also, the same day we come back (Monday), he has an appointment with the sleep study people. We’ll have to leave Vegas very early that morning, but it’s OK. So things are looking much more positive for the weekend.
I can’t wait to see everyone. I can’t wait for tons of hugs. I do look forward to the play, but that’s really the least of it. I just want to be with our friends and forget about the real world for a while.
Oh, and did I mention I’m shooting this weekend? For “Uncle Bob’s Woodshed,” a Clips4Sale store. Two clips, easy, fun.
I won’t be posting any new blogs while I’m there (too hard from a phone), but I’ll be keeping up with comments and emails, as always.
Hopefully I will have lots of fun reports for you, and pictures too! Have a great weekend, y’all.
