I removed a couple of blogs from my blog list, sadly, as the writers had passed on from this world. It made me sad to see them at the bottom of the list, no longer to be updated. I have this weekend added a few more. A lot of times I troll other bloggers blog lists, and if I find myself spending as much time clicking off their list as I do my own I figure it is time to add those blogs to my own list. I do have an eclectic (thank you spell check) list as my interests are fairly wide ranging. I am mostly following full time RV'ers, though, as that is where I hope to end up.
Last weekend was a 3 day weekend, and I spent it in Teguc at the InterContinental. The casinos were very, very good to me. Here's hoping that the trend continues while I'm in Las Vegas. I have that RV lifestyle to fund, you know. I was double upgraded at the hotel since my original upgraded room was not yet ready when I arrived. My special front desk guy showed up and suddenly I was on my way to the Jr. Suite on the top floor. Separate living room with it's own guest bathroom, both a glassed in shower and a sunken tub off the large bedroom. Have I mentioned that I will miss this part, being one of the 1% while paying discounted rates?
Being away last weekend set me up needing to spend this weekend cleaning and mopping and doing laundry and ironing. Something seems to have happened to the geckos. I'm wondering if my upstairs neighbor putting out poison for the ants got to the geckos. I haven't heard them in a few days and they are usually fairly noisy around sunset. I also have been invaded by the big ants. I don't kill them intentionally, but I do encourage the spiders to do the natural thing. My floors looked like Armageddon (again, thanks spell check)with dead ants everywhere. Again this morning is more of the same after a day of sweeping them up yesterday. I, myself, have avoided the use of poison out of concern for the geckos.
I am pulling things out to donate as I pack for my trip. I'll take two suitcases to Mom's, planning on leaving one in storage. The box of glasses did get taken in to a co-worker rather than packed away. It is a start. I am excited about 5 days in Las Vegas, time in the US, alone, to do what I want when I want. I do admit that I'm kinda hoping to fund that RV lifestyle while I'm there. A girl can dream.
