I woke up from my third nap today and am finally accomplishing something before I have to start working again. 60 to 65 degree weather and sunshine during the day were a welcome relief to the snow dumping on our home state. We spent five nights in Las Vegas. So far my kids seem absolutely unaffected by my absence. This is the first time we’ve left Sidney longer than three nights. I don’t know what I did to have children so independent, but it certainly makes my life easier.
Who would have thought Las Vegas has so many beautiful Chinese New Year displays in its casinos. We are not and I repeat not gamblers, so the gambling isn’t completely relevant. Instead there’s beautiful architecture, great food, nice hotels, mountains around the city, and plenty of places to spend quality time with my husband. I think this is so important for married couples. We’ve been married almost 16 years, so I think I have a right to some opinion. I see so many people around us spending zero time away from their kids. What happens after the kids are gone? We spend 18 years raising our kids out of what we hope is 40 or 50 years married. Descending my soapbox.
