Things I like to do in my free time:

Read
Write
Gamble

Bet you weren’t expecting number three, huh? Probably because it doesn’t quite fit the mold of a mother in her mid-30’s but BACK OFF - I CAN STILL HAVE A WILD SIDE, TOO.  Ok, fine, maybe sitting at the $5 non-smoking Blackjack tables with a glass of water isn’t quite the “wild” side but I sure feel bulletproof when I double down on an 11. 

And…I’ve officially lost the non-gamblers. 

Why am I writing about gambling? Because in just five short days, I am hopping a plane for a very long ride to LAS VEGAS with my handsome husband where we will spend four days living it up at Treasure Island and taking in the crazy chaos that is Vegas.  Without children. 

Now, I know what you’re probably thinking. 

You get four days without children and you pick one of the busiest cities in the world to spend your free time?

Short answer: yes.  Except we’re going for a conference with our nutrition company and, well, since the company chooses the location, what can we do except go and have an amazing time, right?!

Well, and I’ll be seeing my mother for the first time in fifteen years…so there’s that.

If you've read my book, you understand the heaviness of the above sentence.  If you haven't read my book, what the what, yo? Like, do we need to talk?
