Left my Rockstar-ness in Vegas

I'm home from Vegas.  Home from feeling glamorous. I like that you can leave the state, get in a hotel room and everything seems cooler.  Including your husband.  Not that I don't think he's cool, but the truth is when anyone is standing in a fabulous room with the lights of a crazy city behind you, you just are - more.  More everything, more whatever it is.  And for me personally, when I get to far away from the kids to make it to the emergency room should one of them break an arm or something - I really go for it! Not crazy bad, crazy good.
 I have to say that almost every night I was over-served (my way of saying I drank too much). We had some incredible food, which was the main reason we were in Vegas.  I plan to post more about the food another time.  Of course we gambled too. And while it was a great trip and I loved getting to be wild - I am happy to be home.

January 2010
Today is a HUGE DAY for Sister and I - Today marks 12 WHOLE MONTHS without someone dieing. The first time we have made it a year in a four year span.  Also, the fact that it was an IMPORTANT female in our family every time only added to it.  I am thankful and grateful that we have finally had a year without death.  Today is also my mothers birthday.  My grandmother (mom's mom) was the last to die, last year, the day before mom's birthday.  So I am celebrating!!!!!!  Now if anyone dies in the very near future I am going to be a little pissed.  I am posting a picture of my sister and my Mema from last year. Sister was so good at giving comfort and love.  I'm not posting the picture to bring about sadness but because it is beautiful to me. It's beautiful to me that we can be sharing space and love with someone who is about to embark on a new journey outside of this life.
